Sorry for the thread jack, Hope those guys are doing well.
I'm glad someone decided to mention that bar to bar is not only stupid but it is also illegal.

hate to say it but....

the only groups I ever see riding bar to bar are the ones traveling 10 to 15 under the posted SL, wearing no gear.

I've also seen more than a few avoidable multi-bike accidents caused by that practice.

They also tend to hang over into the oncoming lanes in curves. VERY annoying on back roads like the Sisters.

Lets all just be real. It takes skills to ride abreast.

Yup, about the same amount required to ride without a helmet

newspaper left out the little detail that this was the Bandidos. There were 20-30+ riders and it shut down I-10 for about an hour.

What does being a Bandido have to do with a random tire coming off a vehicle and taking out some bikes?

when I passed that accident it looked suspicious that the Bandidos riding in the clear n straight HOV lanes in the middle of the day could get into a major accident. I assumed foul play
