It's not our style to leave people behind laying on the side of the road
So if the last rider crashes, he'll just lay on the side of the road until the group turns around at the next intersection?

1. Blanco
2. CraigRR
3. Bevo (most likely)
4. Lucar (2 up)
5. Longdraw (If I'm not working)

You won't be needing your radar detector at MSRH, loan it to Craig

Absolutely!

Let's go to the clovers where the 1000cc power doesn't have the advantage of a straight road.

Be more than happy to see you go BOR there, I'll try to keep up

I need to see if I can get the time off, being out for a month sucked up most of my vacation days that I had been stacking up.

But hey if they did start leaving me at the first turn so what? Ride your own ride man, think Ive done enough group rides to understand that from now on I dont want to die out there ha stay with 75% of your skill..

EDIT: Dont matter really though. Wont be going to this ride, I thought it was intended for the original BORC/SDRC guys anyway. And the next time I go for a "group" ride I should have finished 3-4 track days. Who knows? Maybe I'll be able to ride a little better

I am sure you improved a lot and you are definitely on the right set of minds....as long as you are riding your own ride and don't try to keep up with a faster rider in front of you then you are welcome on my rides...

So why weren't you leading me through Hwy16 bish

Clovers, meh. There is curbs on both sides, light poles, merging traffic after every turn, sketchy road surface, po-po's....did I miss anything? After going there 3, maybe 4 times, I'll pass.

I'd be a little more careful, man. From the tone in your posts is coming off like you might have something to prove.

You only got one trackday under your belt and you're talking about starting to gain more speed and push a little more on the street. That actually should be the opposite way.

Just be careful trying to ride with the big boys. There is a reason I made my street bike a ball-less one, too much temptation with the SS Bikes.

16 is a different moster. But I'll give you that.

Clovers, meh? I guess....curbing on both sides? What does that have to do if you keep your line? On any street there is the same space if not there is a ditch/curbing/grass/gravel and on t he other side, traffic. So I don't get what you mean..po-pos? Aren't they everywhere? I have not had issues with cops at the Clovers yet. One night around 1:30 we were about 6 just riding round and round while there was a cop car just chilling in the grass. Only until that one got on is that there has been anything.

Merging traffic, I'll give you I guess, but it's not blind and you have plenty if time to adjust speed just like any other road.

Sketchy road surface?? No not at all, that day you said your tire was sliding, Rykoson and I didn't feel anything at all. And till this day I have not had any issues with the road surface... So again, don't really know what you mean.

Just remember, you don't have to prove to anyone out there! If someone makes fun of me for being slow; I tell them to go and themselves! We all have real jobs, and most of them require all your body parts to be functioning at the same time! As long as you ride safe and don't endanger the other riders you should be fine. Just remember there is nothing more dangerous than a guy with something to prove!
