Seriously. It's always an eye opener.

Shoot maybe we can hit up an Open House for UNder $500000.....
Until I went on a tard ride I figured I was the only derp that rode around in the hoods.

Eye opener is a good way of putting it.

I'd go on these cruises.

Werd. I have the hardest time deciding between the Ruckus or the GROM. 90% of the time the Tard stays put.

Making frequent stops, fiddle farting around and riding through a lot of intersections is not a ride. Maybe one day you'll make a real one. I'm looking forward to it

Soooo...On your rides you don't ever pull over to take a break, go through an intersection, or stop to eat?...absolutely no shenanigans?(I'm assuming that's what fiddling around means)

I think I'll pass.

This might not be the most adrenaline pumping ride, but I think it would be something different and it's close by so you would still have the rest of the day to do whatever.

Plenty of photo ops too...

We always stop and eat. We break for fuel. In July and August we'll stop for water. We get out on the back roads for "spirited" rides. Intersections are death traps for riders, but don't let that stop you. Fiddle farting around = getting off the bike and shooting the . You don't need a bike to sit and visit. Enjoy

Not everyone circles the gas station. What you described sounds like majority of the group rides I have been on from here.

Meets or rides? I've never been on a ride where we just rode on city streets.
