in her defense, the sv tends to be hard to shift when it gets hot. I need to get it to a shop and have it looked at.

Don't give up!

I wouldn't give up on the all girls rides, ladies. It sounds like y'all just need to standardize a few group riding rules, that's all.

First off you had a large group. It was a great turn out, so be excited about that. It's really hard to coordinate 20 people in city driving with no CBs. I've been a some large group rides with that many people and the smoothest ones always have a leader and tail gunner with a CB so that no one gets left behind.

If we have a lot of people and no CB then we break into smaller groups (5 or less) and each group has a copy of the route. Regardless of the size of the group we still have a leader and a tail gunner (or chaser). And at stops you can rotate group membership so you get to ride with others.

It's also good to run though hand signals for the group. Here's some but you can make your own modifications. http://www.ridemyown.com/articles/sa...dsignals.shtml

I say you gals try it again and just work on your group riding protocol.

I'm still new to riding but enjoyed meeting everyone. Hopefully when I actually get up to speed and spend some quality time on my bike (not just to and from work) I'd like to try a ride again. Hopefully next one will work out.

I'll admit that I wasn't there so I'm just speaking from experience. But one thing cruiser riders do is coordinate group rides pretty well (granted their group rides are usually boring.)

But it sounds like you had too many people in a group with no front and rear communication. And using traffic blockers in Houston traffic (road rager cagers) is not a good idea. Generally I've found most cagers to be courteous to a large group if that group is also being courteous on the road and not blocking. (I think I see the source of the tail light incident.) Cagers that are going to be dicks will be dicks regardless.

I think some of the problems stemmed from city riding. I recommend that next ride be out on the backroads. I met some people at the same Exxon today and went for a 4 hour ride today off the NW side and ran into little traffic. When I'm riding with new people I try to stay away from city riding until I know their skill level.

Also I don't know how much everyone has ridden but I think the MSF recommends that new riders log at least 3,000 miles by themselves or with just one other rider before they try a group ride.

I'm not picking on you, I'm just saying you gals can do it. Everyone will need to practice the group riding skills and the group should break into smaller clusters if there's no end-to-end communication.

I can give alittle insite on the headlight story! I was riding sweeper we were on 610 getting onto 10 and this woman decided that I didn't need a whole lang to myself so the proceeded to share it with me! After I gave her the " What do you think you are doing" gesture she rode my tail! X saw this as she was blacking cars in the outer lane from coming in on us, so she gets in behind me to tell the llady to back off! Well the lady then decides that X doesn't need her feet and run over them! X being the strong rider she is was able to keep her bike upright and kicks out her headlight!!! YOU GO GIRL!

Overall it was a great day! Tae and I rode 400+ miles, and I just got home a little bit ago!

I was nice meeting you all!

I hate lane sharers.

Good to hear you made it home okay. Saxenlover and I saw you two come towards us on FM359 just south of I-10. Those two Suomy helmets gave you all from a mile away. :icon_smil
