Should have stayed home

Do you ever have those days when you say to yourself, "I should just stay home today." I had one of those on Saturday. So I went to ride with a couple friends who just recently got their first road bikes this month. As we're leaving one of them steps into a pothole as he is backing his bike out and drops it (almost into my new akrapovics). Not a big deal but makes the "go home" feeling stronger. We leave the neighborhood and at the first light we pull up to the other friend (just got his first bike last week) pulls up to a light and decides at the last moment to stop and locks his front wheel up. Down he goes sliding into the intersection. I thought that was it, I am going home now. He picks up his bike and the damage was actually pretty minimal albeit his busted up knee. Suprisingly he is still down to ride although by now I'm having second thoughts. We go to cycle gear for glove liners and pick up some random who was a sick rider to say the least. This got me amped cuz it was someone that I could ride a lot more aggressively with (although he is way faster than me). Go out to ****** road and we're having fun (even though once I caught him we would have to stop and wait for the other two guys). Driving out to an icehouse to get a beer and out of nowhere two sheriffs swarm us. I didn't even see them until one was in the lane next to me and I'm going well over a 100mph. They pulled over two of us (not me though lol) and luckily handed out warnings and did not see the leader's wheelie. I should have stayed home that day but at least it made for a good story.

Nice read. Did your friend who busted a knee have knee/shin protection?

so an experienced rider goes for a ride with his two NOOB friends, both friends drop their bikes "before" the ride (for the sake of argument), you meet a stranger and take off, all the while an icehouse is the final destination for a beer

excellent smithers, excellent

I know it looks bad and unsafe to leave the new riders behind, but in my defense, one of them has tons of dirt bike experience and is actually a pretty good rider. I figured he could look after the noobest one (yeah it's a word) and we never got more than five minutes ahead.

How do we know they were drinking beer? Could have been a sasparila? Besides 5 miles ahead, is like 20 minutes on 1960.

Man I have been waiting to use that line for a while now.

That's what caused the accidents to begin with. Next time I'm smoking one so they don't make me so nervous. That is why I honestly enjoy just riding by myself most of the time.
