With all that info they could of figured it out themselves.:eh: no need for a mandatory "designated leader" especially with a "faster" group. Whoever was is should be banned.

CMRA isn't for everyone either but that's racing. You can still ride with the club and not be a member. No one is turned away or left behind.

Then there's riders that just don't know how to ride and say to themselves what the did I get myself into. Some are also sorry that they slowed the rest of the riders down with there pace. Experience and learning the roads play a big part into having a great ride. Try to realize that learning 300 miles of backroads will take you years of practice. This club has been around for 20 years and faces change as people do. I'll be around for the next 20 years and your more than welcome to follow my tail lights anytime buddy. As for leading a Group A Motohouston ride I will have to consider the facts. It's not easy to take people out that you don't know who are able to manage high speeds and take account to accidents and be responsible. I've seen to many accidents on the back roads and too many riders have no contacts. Thus leading to having to halt the ride and micro manage a way to pick up bikes and contact family members. There has to be some type organization within any Group ride just to be on the safe side. Get my drift, good. Find Jake and Tim and lets do another Motohouston ride.

I dont really understand why we need to haul on the streets when we have several tracks to go to...... Why not just have "group b" type outings? I gurantee you we doing "spirtited speeds" 80% of the time....They are plenty fast enough for me on the street. I just dont wanna see anyone get hurt. And Im not preaching DONT HAUL ON THE STREET, but why have organized rides while doing it?

Actually the pace of B group riding was faster than what I would've done it myself.
I would go slower on the straights and maybe a little faster on turns.
Since I had Rebecca ahead of me, I felt comfortable with the speed.
If I don't do trackdays for a while, I tend to go faster on the street.
But if I get my fix on regular basis, I ride like a grandma on the street.

Through the turns I was right behind people, or leaving some behind. in the straight away, I mostly kept to 60-70mph. few times 80, just so I wouldnt end up losing anyone. I dont see the need to speed up to the next turn, it just wastes gas.
if you want to go fast in the next turn, you dont need to haul up to it for the first 2 miles just to make it around the corner.

I agree with you and Scrapp.
I never ride fast on the streets, unless I do ride fast, also.

I tend to enjoy riding solo. That way I can change aggressivness at any time pending on my mood and not have to worry about the rest of a group. Stop when and where, you know that selfish thing. Ride to meet other riders is generally beter for me keeps the drama down. :icon_bigg Love hitting Orsak's. How did you city slickers like Orsak's?

I've been out there plenty, but some in the group had never heard of it before. I was asked if they give us kickbacks for bringing groups there I WISH!

It's just a nice spot that is a good distance away from the "big city", so it makes for a well-placed stopping point. Unless you're doing a full day ride (400-500 miles) that's the far-point anyway. Rides that go farther west tend to be overnighters. (well, for me anyway)

Thanks again to everyone who came out and enjoyed the day. Based on the response, I'll probably do another one with an attendance limit, or we can plan ahead for splitting the group down into smaller sections.

1291 was paved, but I'm not sure if that's the one you're referring to. It's the one with the 30mph turns coming into town.

The only section that had construction signs up didn't have any actual work in progress, so everything there was paved too. There was one road that we took that had questionable pavement, but had I known how rutted it was I could have routed past it.

Anyone else here dual-sport? I've got some great routes through some of that area if you are Ok on graded gravel and dirt.
