Mark/dnutz please post mentioned video.

Mark, Most of the poeple contributing to this thread have alot more seat time than you. Thus a little different perspective and experience. We have all picked someone off the tarmac alive and sometimes dead. You don't need to go super sonic speeds(over 110ish) to have a great SMR.

If you don't believe me check out this thread

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=38999

I led the group and never went over 100.

I hope you don't take my post as an attack but rather as someone trying to help a newer rider out.

Peace.

Martin

I plan to ride with the group this Sunday. With that said, I'm always nervous riding with people I don't know/trust so this will determine how involved I get in the future. My philosophy is that I am not only responsible for myself but also everyone I'm riding with. It's bad enough dealing with all the cagers on the road...why add to it with irresponsible riding?! I plan to hang near the rear of the pack and observe. If I get left behind I know where to go and I'll take my time getting there.

As an more experienced rider I'm always careful to pay close attention to those less experienced and I would hope all MH members do the same. That's why I'm concerned with what Jetg has posted. I like a thrill as much as the next guy but I will not ride with people who put my life and the lives of others at risk.

It's risky every time we hop on the bike. Accident can and will happen...we all know this. If we weren't willing to take the risk we wouldn't have a bike.

So, with that said, let's have a great and safe ride this Sunday.

I can't remember how long you've been riding, but if you don't have a pretty good bit of experience riding fairly hard, DON'T. I used to go on the ride all the time, and I loved it. I still want to go sometimes as a matter of fact. It's a fun ride if ya have a good idea of what you're doing. . . but if you're not used to riding like that, it can get really ugly really quick. I quit going on it simply because I saw too many people go down, and don't want someone wrecking trying to keep up.
I won't badmouth the ride because as I said, I had a lot of fun doing it while I did, and I still consider some of the leaders of it friends. . . but you REALLY need to be ready for it.

I agree with Jet, I'll call the cops every weekend if it keeps somebody from getting killed.
And I wouldn't loose a bit of sleep over it. :/:

And the video is stupid.........

I consider myself a pretty good rider (but then again, who doesn't). I can ride hard and hang at high speed but there's really no way for me to know for sure without going at least once. Worst case, if it gets too bad I'll just drop back and out. Thanks for the advice.

WTF justifies one of us putting our entertainment above and beyond the safety and health of someone else?
Im sorry but I wont bash someone that is no longer with us. You sir need to get your facts straight. On one of the particular rides mentioned above (one of my first ever with this board) I was cruizing 115-120MPH AND WAS BEING LEFTFAR-FAR BEHIND by the rest of the group (with the person mentioned above). I know for a fact because my buddy rode his H-D that day and I was going SLOW so that he could stay up with me and about 110 is all it will do.

Plain and simple. Actions speak louder than words.

I have said all I can say. Peace be with all of you...

Same here. I'd really love to go again, just don't want the personal responsibility that will more than likely come with it.:/:

Man, maybe I lived up in the country too long (Longview, TX) but we rode all the time, as often as we could. We were satisfied with cruising down country roads at 80-100mph and, thank , we never had an accident on a ride in 3 years. If this thread is a testement of things to come...

...maybe I don't really want to get involved with these rides. I'll just stick with the occasional rally or M&G.

no BS....you've got a good head on your shoulders....80-100 mph is WAY MORE than enough when riding backroads....that is how the ride started 1+ years ago....now it seems to be a race for the finish line....1 sh*tty thing though,I saw a few friends in the video...I guess I still got friends who haven't learned yet:/:

Yeah, and I guess I'm trying to figure out where I am in the midst of all this experience. Guess I'll figure out where I stand in comparison to everyone once we start riding together.

I have to agree. Going out there was some of the best times I've had on a bike. Until the groups are a bit more controlled though I'll just do something else on Sundays.
