This. All fun and games on the internet, but when you take the ego to the street, people die.

Get your license if you haven't gotten it first. Some LEO's will tow you and take you for a ride if they pull you over acting a fool.

After that practice on roads you know very well. Once comfortable there, go on some noob group rides here that will take you on some nice turns.

I agree, no disrespect meant. I would never push someone to something that would get them hurt. I have seen alot of ugly s**t on group rides with people who shouldnt have been there. If you ever wanna ride some twistys send me a message i ride two up sometimes, thats always a fairly moderate pace. I took a kid from work a couple weeks ago, he had been telling me similar things about going fast on the highway. Ghostrider is not what its all about. Its about riding your own ride, improving your skills, having fun and most importantly going home at the end of the day. Good luck.

This guy is a noob (first bike ever), you said "not noob friendly" in the title of your ride, and then you personally invite this guy.

How is that not encouraging him to speed with you guys and get over his head?
He doesn't even know the parts that improve a bike's performance, you think he's gonna know proper riding technique through twisties at a high (non-noob) rate of speed?

Fair enough.
You can see why I'd ask though.

I wish I could make that ride, but I have a wedding Saturday night.

Well I'm down to ride just wanna let y'all know I'll try and keep up but if I don't fell up to par with the group I'm a big enough man to back off and go at my own pace and I'd rather go in small groups no more than 4-6 just so its easier it keep a eye on everyone
