Are you going to be leading them on high speed turns with cold tires? If so I'm in.

The pre-ride talk is great.

"Don't ride like I ride, but follow me."

Something like that. The speech and pace is adjusted per group. We have done the entire route at no more than 10 over

You really should lower your tire pressures some

For you, 1/4 of a pound

Bridgestone did say I could drop the pressures 3 to 4 pounds for aggressive riding, but that I should inflate back to placard pressures for every day riding. What I did this morning is every day riding.

The point people are trying to make with the cold roads/tire posts are mainly to let new/not seasoned riders know that there is less traction when cold/cold tires. That does not mean that there is NO traction... Just less. So someone who is inexperienced may go into a turn the same speed they would go into when its 100 outside at 30 degrees and blip the throttle and out goes the rear, when if it was 100 that would not have happened. There is a surprising amount of traction when its wet as well you just have to be smooth..... that does not mean everyone should go out and push their bike when its raining. I am not saying you are in anyway trying to get people to do it. I don't feel anyone was saying you cannot haul when its cold its just not recommended especially for a new rider.

Yea well, I can't tell you how many times I've gone on rides when it's been hotter than and there's always "that guy" that claims his tires are slipping and he's not going any faster than anyone else in the group

And I'd be willing to bet "that guy" hadn't checked his tire pressures since he had the bike and they were less than 20 lbs front and rear. We see it all of the time.

rules of thumb are not 100%... but they are rules of thumb and they exist for a reason... experience and talent will let you get away with violating those rules... but if you do not have the talent and experience, ,those rules of thumb can extract a high price for being violated...IMO just throwing out that the rules can be ignored, is not in general, a good thing to do...

I usually tell them to go have Patrick set up their suspension

For Eskimos, no. For a motorcycle tire's optimum operating conditions, just a bit.

I thought that the suggested pressure of 36ish was front and rear combined
