Yes - but you dont have to do home.

Just stand up and say "we are riding too hard and fast - let's back it off several notches so none of us get hurt or hurt someone else".

And then lead by doing just that.

Peer pressure and leadership means a lot to a group.

+1. if you don't feel comfortable enough with the guys you're riding with to say your opinion, then you shouldn't be riding with them in the first place.

no no no I'm not disagreeing with you...I was just simply stating, that the risk of dying on the road is there for everyone, and that's something that everyone has to accept. I never said they were responsible, I was merely stating a fact, that is all.

riding way to fast is a dangerous condition to put yourself in and drinking and driving is a dangerous condition to put yourself in. if you kill yourself or someone else then.................
