Like maybe if your bike goes 120, 160 or 170. You should know that before being on a BORC ride, just saying

unfortunately this keeps happening repeatedly, we are all friendly to all riders, but truly encourage every one to be safe and ride at their most comfortable speed/skill and not over their heads or setting and such times/weather/road.

Also ask barry, i rode with him through those turns before and I did fine. The wind just caught me off guard, it happens in riding.
I'm glad you are fine, and your bike is good. I intend no pun on you Umayr, it can happen to the best of us.
I apologize if I'm sounding like an , I'm glad you came out good of this experience and you will learn from it.

I understand that and have seen it in action, however we all know that the adrenline starts pumping and a person with only a few months experience will try to keep up (I think that is called machismo) and thats when things go bad. I should know I have lived it.

your ego is your only enemy in most cases i have seen it many times on our Sunday rides and that is why i choose to stay behind and away from potential trouble from the beginning and make my way to the front once i see that everyone has made it to RR safely.
