Some dude on 02 zx-9 ran off the road about 3 miles into 359. curve was marked 55 and we were doing about 75-80 :dontknow: We left PP1 and immediately when we hit I-10 peeps were running 110+ through traffic. Not quite my style of riding, but hey some people enjoy near death experience I guess. Anyhow dude who wrecked was motioning to me on I-10 that he had the back of the group and I should proceed at 120 to catch the group. Right!!! Never ridden with most of these guys and probably won't again. Needless to say when we stopped at the gas station I was talking to Noctem and I said look...I'm not trying to be a d*ck, but lets see who all is fast once we hit these twisites. Anyhow, glad the dude walked away, but now he has nice crunchy piece. I guess twisties aren't for everyone. Sorry for the long report. It's actually a long rant :BangHead: , but I hate going on rides where someone has to crash right in front in of you because they are trying to prove themselves. Not to mention the guy looked like he was running a 190 rear tire and I hear those are heavy in the turns....ok enough of my rant....I was looking for a ride after the 359 run...apparently that wasn't the plan.....Oh, well...I know for next time.

^ This is why I do not ride with some of you ASSHATS
I have a wife and kid I need to get home to.

I enjoy riding fast but not on any of the Fuked up Freeways around here.

Glad to hear noone was killed.

Unfortunetly you don't know everyone's riding ability until you ractually ride with them. I was guessing by the 1 1/2" chicken strips that some of the riders were inexperienced. Thus, I stayed in the back...and with I-10/610 or any of these other freeways they are changing lane patterns almost daily....120+unfamiliar roads+grandma drivers that didn't even know you were there = somebody getting hurt or killed.

100mph+ on the freeways isn't cool regardless of the road conditions.

We should ride sometime!

I met them at the shell station in brookshire so I can't say anything about the freeway ride. After the first accident we rode for a little bit longer and then someone else went out on a corner going a little hot maybe I don't know, i was 2 bikes behind. This is the second time I see someone going out on that turn I tried to catch up to warn them but I remember about the turn two bikes too late. A pick up truck help us place the bike in 290, I think the guy broke his ankle (he wasn't wearing boots). The bike maybe totalled not sure.

When I first moved to Houston and looked for rides and groups to ride with I saw this group. These guys do seem to be responsible (and a lil' older and wiser), however, I heard they frown upon guys who don't wear full leathers and riding boots. I wear gear, but I consider jeans, boots, leather jacket, helmet, and gloves as gear....not a sweat suit. <---BTW, this is my opinion...if you choose to wear full leathers cool, just not my thing for an early SMR.

Try springsportbikes.com, these are the guys I ride with when I can find the time. Mostly 30 yoa + riders, no stunts, no freeway riding, full gear, and no bs. No complaints thus far when riding with them. Its your responsibility to ride at your own pace, so I never feel pressure to keep up with anyone.

For informal rides, it's up to the ride leader/organizer but typically the minimum requirement on www.twtex.com is boots, jeans, jacket, gloves, helmet. Riding pants are preferred but not required.

TSBA guys usually run full leathers, but that's because most of them ride track days all the time and if you've got leathers you might as well wear them on the street too.

...for an upcoming ride I'm leading, I posted up rules and min. gear requirements. Most ppl don't, but I'd rather get it out now than have to turn someone away the morning of the ride.

I'd like to point out another important fact...It never hurts to get to know the people that you are going to ride with BEFORE you go. Find out how they want to ride and make it known that you do NOT want to ride aggressive on the streets. If you don't feel comfortable, slow down, u-turn and go the other way.

This is the main reason I take it to the track...I hardly ever ride on the street anymore because it's just not as much fun as a weekend at the track. I have seen 3 people wreck on 3090 because they were not responsible. I got one on tank cam, one we knew he was going to wreck before we even left, and the other just had it coming because of the size of his head. Point is, motorcycle riding is one time when you really have to watch out for yourself because nobody else is going to.

Gear is good. Responsible riding is even better.
