I guess it's time to sale my bikes or decide to only ride alone. sure won't be organizing any rides if I have to inspect DL and Ins. cards as well as verify riding experience.
Anyone that rides or has ridden in the past knows the inherent danger every time they start their bike. They need to also understand the bikes limitations as well as their own.
Like I tell my kids, Just because you can, it doesn't mean you should.
Not all rides, like the one Saturday, are about running double posted through the twisties. Did it get spirited at times? Sure. Testosterone starts flowing and start swelling and someone hits the throttle and others follow suit. Happens. It didn't last long and wasn't the premise of the ride.
Its upsetting that people won't attend rides because they are concerned about how everyone else is going to ride. Ride your own ride. I do. You will always find me near the back of a group enjoying myself. Not trying to keep up with anyone. Just keeping them in sight so I know where the next turn is.

Ok. I'm done. Rip me a knew one now if you like. Love ya and look forward to riding with you in the future. Or not.

Only one rider gets to be at the end of the group. At least you don't have to worry about getting hit by a bike behind you.

I did. I wanted to head back to the seawall and though everyone else were saying they did too, they all seemed content sitting at that guys house. We had been talking about going back across the ferry since 2 pm. I finally gave up at 4:45 and went by myself. It was in no way a reflection on anyone that was there. I had planned to come back as well but the line for the ferry was all the way to the seawall. At that point I chose to call it a day and ride home.

Hey so honest question here. I've never had to interact with the police since I started riding...(knock on wood). If a cop comes after a group, is everyone supposed to pull over or would he single one out? I'd have no intention of running anyway my bike isn't fast enough for that

Regardless of where you are in the group you always have to worry about being hit from behind. May be a bike, may be a car. You can never let your guard down, you know that.

Wouldn't that be an etiquette question?

I would imagine the proper thing would be the whole group pulls over.

I agree, just curious what the law is. From the officers perspective pulling over a group of 10+ bikers all at once would seem unnecessary...

Most rides I've been on the entire group pulls over. Cops usually ride along side the leader with the intent that the entire group pulls over. Now, there have been stragglers that just kept on riding without being noticed.

Personally, if I'm not leading and it's a relatively tight formation, I'll pull over and not leave the leader hanging.

It's up the the officer. Normally they like to run VIN's/licenses and insurance.

Sometimes they just single one guy out, but not normally.

One rider can cause the entire group to get a speeding ticket. It's allowed by law. Ask me how I know

I dont care what group ride I am on, if someone crashes or there is a bike failure, i will stay and help the best i can.

However, if on a group ride, and a cop pulls up behind me Ii'm usually the sweeper), I will pullover, however, if i pull over and he goes on to get the next guy, I aint stopping with the group I'll just keep moving on my merry way.

No need to pull over in a group, ain't got not time for that.

looks like you'll be leading the ride to the Central Meet next month!!!

I will gladly let someone else lead. The last time I was leader(cough cough Saturday cough cough), riding my own ride, the sweeper passed me and urged me to speed up. It seems the sweeper missed the whole conversation about taking it easy on 290 since its so unpredictable right now and then going a bit more spirited once we hit I-10.

guess i missed all that, however, when we were coming upon traffic, it looked like the group was insitent on staying in a tight little group causing more traffic.

I, in fact, did what the job description requires me to. Sweep the group to safer pastures, which i felt we did. Also the guys we were riding with were experienced commuters so again, staying in a blob in one lane is unnecessary.

We nominate you for Central meet leader!!!

Who is we?

If so, Maybe I'll ride the 250. After following me on it, I will never be elected ride leader again. LOL
