So you instruct slower riders on the street so they can race on the street? That's a novel approach.

C'mon Curt, is that what i really said or is it what you would like it to sound like.

I did mention "comfortable" and "higher pace".... never did i mention racing on the street lets say Crabb River which both you and I know what that means correct? The best i can say to your comment is "Practice What you Preach and be Real"!

I'm just wandering, are certain people on here racist, or do these certain people just hate Sunday Rider, or is it petty jealousy...

It seams to me every time SR get's on here the same 2-4 people get on here and start a bash fest

WTFH

...just an observation...

Good write up Bart. Glad to see you are ok. You will be back in no time. I will be thinking about what you have written here when I am riding. I learned something new today & I appreciate you sharing.

You know, I was reeeeealy hoping no-one would mention that...


Actually there was one gal there (see video). I noticed three things:
1) She looked young
2) Her "body language" seemed nervous
3) She didn't seem to focus on talking to anyone in particular

Thus:
1- Conversations/requests from us "older guys" can get interpreted as getting "creeped on" - bad aftermath
2- probably not a long-term experienced rider, hence not someone I'd want to ride 2-up w/ while in the early stages of minor shock, and a useless leg. Homophobia be d*mned, one fall was already too many for one day.
3- single/my bf isn't here - makes item #1 worse. I figure us guys' homophobia can be taken for granted; the lack of an offer pretty much pro-offered an answer.

and if my thinking was skewed... oh well I did what I thought was respectful... and in any event everything got taken care of... and again my huge thanks to all who were there
