even six is a lot for me... bc for me, im about keeping track of how fast everyone is going and where they are.. its like an airtraffic controller, the more bikes around me,, the more i have to focus on every single biker and their speed.. in big groups, its just impossible to know what every bike is up to. plus, i gotta slow bike.. so i cant just fly away from the pack. lol

Thats understandable. I'm the same way, I must know at all times where everyone is....like a radar. I only trust riding w/ 2 guys because I know how they ride and where they usually ride the line so i don't have to worry too much about weather he'll try to cut me off in my own lane. If i knew 6 guys who i knew well enough to ride with i could trust that they are sensible riders who practice common sense on given situations.

i can drag knee there easily... all you do is put the bike on the kickstand, grab the rear bumper of a passing car and you'll start dragging knee. at least that way you can resell the bike after dragging knee

You should really start riding with people you trust then. Anytime i'm in a bigger group you'll find me right where I know I can trust everyone. Tis a lot easier to focus on riding when you know the guys in front of or behind you are skilled enough to not do anything dumb.

+1 i agree with you, i do prefer to ride with ppl i trust and who have a steady pace,, but sometimes ppl just appear outta nowhere and think they can ride with me. lol,

I smell someone's ALIAS

but, if for some reason you're not....you should really hear TDubs out, he has a real not so nice story about riding Memorial/Allen that may help you rethink your decision.

you've gotta be hanging WAY off the bike....going at least 100+ mph to drag knee through allen parkway.....

you have a better chance of dragging knee going the same speed on an overpass changing freeways.....at least the road is smoother, and if you fck up....you won't feel the pain after you drop a few hundred feet.

seriously though....do a trackday or go do some backroads like fm3090 or racers road. less people to hurt if you should run outta experience. they also make allen parkway look like a straight line.
