Usually the lectures aren't happening unless after the ride someone is off and they put someone in danger... usually that person that got shook up will have a word w/ them. sometimes they hang around and sometimes they don't

also this is why I enjoy riding by myself. no need for someone to tell me what to do. I don't ride stupid (ignore the avatar) nor do I ride aggressive like I did at first. It's nice riding your own ride now having to stop every 10 minutes to wait for someone or to have people waiting on you. you'll figure it out if you haven't already
understandable.

For me...it's a wee bit disconcerting to have someone whizz up beside me on their back wheel at only inches from my bike *coughhyperidecough* I don't think I'll be doing any more organized group rides anymore.

Sportbikes ARE designed to haul ...

But public freeways/back roads aren't motorcyclist's testing ground...

This reminds me... Remember Kids... The new majic number is something like 90mph... Anything over that is no longer eligible for DDC effective Sep 1st I belive...

And btw (speaking from personal experience), three years is a VERY long time for a speeding ticket to roll off...

(Just trying to help some of you youngsters from making the same mistakes I did.)

Maybe it's just me but a 150 hp bike is MADE to speed. If you don't want to speed, then you need to get a different bike.

Maybe it's just me....

Yep, I can understand Squeaky not being on a SS bike, but people who buy them are buying them for one reason. SS bikes are nothing more than cheap performance.

That is all.

I just want to say getting to tripple digits is just to easy on a sport bike it happens all the time but yes when you ride in a group its good to be safe and have fun you dont want to be the person that caused 5-10 bikes go down sometimes you get one of those peps in a group I would leave the ride to

I am saddened by this /\ but to each there own...
I joined this awesome community to learn and ride (group or not) with some serious riders and have not been let down yet!
I am no Hooligan by no means but I know if there are a pack of experienced and aggressive riders in front of me I can generally ride the route any way I see fit, simply due to rideing at the rear no one can see me except a rider or two and the sweeper and I haven't ever been spoken to unless it was complementitive or general enthusiasm.
I will ride with these young whipper snappers anytime I'm invited.

It just doesn't make sense to me that riders want to act like speeding is for the devil. I'm a fairly responsible rider and I speed. A lot. Ban me I guess.

I've never been on a group ride, so I don't know about protocol for keeping riders in line, but when I ride with my friends we know the time and place to pick up the pace or cool it down.

I GUARANTEE you that I stand a MUCH better chance of hurting someone else when I'm driving my truck than when I'm on my bike. Guaranteed.

If you own a 150 BHP sportbike and always keep it under the limit you get massive poseur points in my book. I mean why not get a more comfortable bike? You get absolutely no advantage from a sportbike if you're always keeping it under the limit. I'd much rather have a cruiser or a standard if I was going to ride like that.

And don't take my word as implying that I think all riders who obey all traffic laws are poseurs because I surely don't. I agree that there are a LOT of riders out there who should have there keys taken away because of how irresponsbly they ride - but to say that anyone who speeds is a menace to society and the motorcycling community as a whole is laughable.

News flash * there is absolutely nothing wrong with riding a wheelie down a deserted county road. If I fall it's my , literally and figuratively. I take responsibility for myself and my actions and don't ask anything from anyone else.

I don't claim anything MC related on my insurance, so don't bring up the idea of me jacking up your rates either.
i agree with you in many points but, honestly you are wrong on one big time


you are saying that owining a sportbike and going the limit is possing

a bike is a bike no matter what kind is capable of going over the limit

i like sport bikes a lot. but after my broken hand i realized i prefer my hand that the bike

i like to go the limit, and yes. sometimes i pick up way more than that

but is ridiculous to state that owning a sport bike means you are going to haul

maybe thats what u like/ want, which i personally respect your point

as u said, is your , true , but in my bike is my too. for the same reason im more cautious now

so no i am not a posser. i just learned my lesson to each his / her own

I have been on a ride with a friend of mine that rides a cruiser, they are a semi organized group. To do this ride I was asked to sign a waiver and was asked to not ride like a jackass. I have been on rides with sportbike groups that was simply a informal race. You have to do what you are comfortable with. I had no problem not riding like a jackass and it was a great ride. (so was the informal race, but we are not talking about that).....
