so youre saying that its the norm for people to pass each other on a curve and in their own lane, and that it happens so often that theyre ready for it?

no no, he's saying it happens so often that when it happens now it's completely safe.

that guy riding two up crossed the white line and was ONE INCH away from going into the gravel on the side of the road. He looks like got spooked and swerved to far to the inside. Bad pass. No need for that when you have miles of straight road to pass on. It's like passing over the crest of a hill. You should either do it before or after. Edit the straights out too and start the intro with a cool screen that says something like "Borrowed time productions presents" "In association with Sunday Funday Studios." Needed some music too. Maybe some Willie Nelson. Let us have another video to critique please.

i am pretty used to people passing on turns and i am sure people in the front group are used to it by now. look, we have been doing this for more than 6 years and not once we have had an accident due to the people in the front group passing each other! Once again, our rides are not for everyone for sure but given the statistics of other group rides, i think our accident numbers are fairly small compared to others that were supposed to be more controlled, organized and noob friendly!

you should really take an English reading comprehension class. I feel like nothing I've said to you has been understood, let me hit google translate and put it into symbols that you can understand.

I miss these videos you would post up every Tuesday from the ride over the weekend. It's like an interactive Jersey Shore thingie. Lots of drama and douchebaggery. Plus I'm always lazy on Tuesdays so it helps pass the time. My favorite was the one with the guys chasing the old lady in a white Buick because she was driving too slow or made a bad pass, I can't recall which. And then out of no where there was a bike parked in the middle of the road and the guys that were chasing the car fly by at like a 100+ barely missing that idiot. Put one of those up. I still have a couple hours to kill.

you got it all wrong he saw that pass even before going into the turn so he did not get spooked by the pass instead he was making more room to facilitate the pass!

Failso, I see you used my name here buddy! thats so not cool sir!

it! I dont give a rat's ... I like all you guys ether way.

Frank, Mr F has been to our Sunday rides... acutally... most of the people here on MH have been.
The problem is that some people ride more agresive then others and thats why some people dont like the way most of you guys ride out there.

Yes I used to be like that because I love speed... I would push it and didnt care what would happen, but now.. I do my pushing at the track, I rip the throttle open with out having to worry about cops, cars and other on the road.. yes! still having the chance to crash and go down, and go to the hospital or even ride the helicopter just like any where else on the streets...

We can stop all the bullshit guys! we know each other and we have riding before.. there is no need to keep putting wood in the fire (unless you really have nothing else to do the rest of the day...)

For the recod. most people that ride SMR are very closed friends and more of regulards, I know how Frank and others ride....
some people push it on the free way getting pulled over coming from galveston (you know who you are^^^) others get pulled over for doing wheelies on the freeway (yes... you too^^) but now what? we are all different now.. we dont do anything elegal.. we got a bike to do the speed limit?? some people learn the hard way and others learn before that happens.. people at the track (who only do track days now) have been there and done that...

Any ways... I just like how someone post one video of LOCAL friends riding STUPID on some back roads and everyone else whats to talk when we all been there and done that!... same thing different day..

Now... lets talk about wednesday night when people do route nights!
thats just another topic.


AND YES.. I know.. My english sucks! so be it!
