Hey guys, if I may, give some constructive criticism. I rode in this event with you all. I was a little apprehensive when it started. The ride had its high and LOW points.
I rode up to the event with Will, Therky42 and a couple other guys. Please do not mistake this event had good intentions.
I know it is difficult to keep everyone close together, but the first group that headed out just couldn't keep off the throtle. I would think you get everyone on the road before you open it. Think of a funeral procession. The ride started off with big gaps between groups. We were out there riding at 70+ with great distance between each bike with cars entering the freeway, the cagers do not know they are interupting a procession. Take for example the White Ford that got in front of me on 59. If we would have been closer togerther and riding a wee bit slower he wouldn't have been able or probably wouldn't have wanted to sneek in there. But with the marshall screaming past me at over 100 MPH to catch him, (scared me by the way) He/she (had a ponytail) created a scene I do not want to repeat. The ride marshall acted in his/her own behalf, disregarding the safety of fellow riders and other vehicles on the road. Many times the marshall shook the fist at the Ford PU driver just him off all the more, making him swerve and try to get around the train. Several times I thought someone was going to go off the road or cause a rear end accident, not only for the marshall and the White Ford PU but the other cagers who were innocent and unaware of what was happening.
The Fort Bend Sheriff had to drive like a bat of h-ll to catch the front end of the line, only because we didn't wait for him to get in front of us from the beginning. Just think if someone would have been coming in the opposite direction and didn't want to give the sheriff the road. I'm sure there would have been a few bikes down at some point.
I ask the next group that try this again, restrain yourselves from trying to be the first out of the hole and wait for the group to catch up. It is not only safer but shows a little more respect for the rules of the road and the cause, why you are there in the first place.
Please take this with and open heart. Thanks

One thing I did notice was some people were not sticking to the "no passing" rule and the "staggered" formation seemed more like a suggestion than a rule as well, but all in all, very smooth and lots of fun in my opinion ... def should do that again under much happier circumstances.

I personally think that if someone needed through or for an exit or to merge that we should have let them through. I saw some people not want to let cars in front of them... this was not a police escorted "official" ride so cars should have been able to merge if needed. In the long run that will just make them mad if they have to miss their exit because some bikes wouldn't let them over, they didn't know the reason for the ride. We needed a few ride marshals to lead a group if they got seperated, not to fly past us to try to keep cars out, just my 2 cents

only people that should have been able to pass were ride marshalls.

and also, i think i mentioned the front of the group would be a little faster (speed limit in this case) because the further back the group gets the slower everyone else will ride back there (40-50mph).

in any case, thats why their were ride marshalls in the back of the group to take the lead and were probaly passing you guys to get into formation. ony thing i would have doen differently is have some sort of identification for these marshalls, but we dont do this for a living and dont have the vest and such.

Note for full disclosure

I was one of the leading first four bikes for most of the trip and when we were on 288S, we were doing a whopping 65 mph (at the fastest point) and most of the time on 288S we were doing around 55-58. There was no speeding going on. When we were on Crabb River Rd, we were doing exactly 70, that is, until the police escort at which point I would say we did somewhere between 80 - 90 mph. The reason the Police Officer was so far behind and had to speed to catch up was because he had been blocking off traffic as we were all leaving the site of the wreck for around 60-70 bikes. The only time things got truly out of hand IMO was when we reached 59N, there were a few people that took off but at that point we were pretty much all dispersing and either heading home or to Fudruckers. Besides, a grown man/woman is going to do as he or she sees fit and they are entitled to that, and so long as they do not endanger either myself or anyone I am with (and hopefully no one else down the road), I have no problem. Overall, good ride...good experience glad to have been there and thank you all for coming

GOOD MORNING ALL AND GREAT RIDE ON SATURDAY. THANKS 2 ALL OF U WHO MADE IT POSSIBLE. FORBID SOMETHING HAPPENS 2 ME, I ONLY HOPE MY FAMILY WILL HAVE A FORM OF SUPPORT SUCH AS THIS WITH A TURN OUT AS GOOD AS THIS. ROGER WOULD BE PLEASED.THE BEST THING WAS EVERYONE MADE IT HOME SAFELY AND THAT'S WHAT COUNTED TO ME.

I do apologize if some of u didn't appreciate my ride marshall skills, I've actually done several jobs like this WITH LEO's as a help out and this is WHAT THEY DO IN PROCESSIONS. IT WAS NOT MY IDEA TO RIDE ON MY OWN BEHALF, I wouldn't have to fly past anyone if we were going just a little slower, but I had 2, 2 catch the front and ENCOURAGE a SLOWER PACE 2 KEEP US ALL 2GETHER. Furthermore that FIST u saw had a thumb sticking out asking the cager to get out of our procession. When he shook his head ok, ok, he just stayed in the lane, and when u all behind him decided to come around HE THEN DECIDES 2 MOVE OVER. WHEN SOMEONE GETS N2 A FUNERAL PROCESSION THE POLICE REMOVE THEM FROM THE LINE IN THE SAME MANNER difference is they have nice lights/sirens 2 go with.

I HAVE NEVER DISREGARDED THE SAFETY OF NOT 1 THAT RIDES WITH ME IN ALL OF THE YRS I"VE BEEN RIDING. I ACTUALLY GO OUT OF MY WAY TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE. Next time step up and do a better job. (sorry about the negative connotation folks but I took the
