Look thru the turns, try not to focus on any point, practice keeping your eyes moving. Turn your whole head, not just your eyes, and remember that you go where you look, so don't look at oncoming traffic or the trees.

That's why we enjoy the stops when we do...

Keep moving around when we are at the gas station. Notice how unmotivated you became after stuffed from lunch? Takes a while to get the adrenaline and your reaction back after sitting down and relaxing

First major corners after a long straight ride and a stop at a gas station. Its not good timing nor good mojo.

I think, just my humble opinion, that if he have a turn out like that we should send off in waves. Maybe with 10 minute intervals. Groups of 10. Then everyone meets at Yankees, socializes, and then leave in waves again.

I have some other ideas but will keep PM or in person.

Road King rules would speculate the recommended size of a motorcycle group is the length of a big rig on the road when staggered. So if we had 24 bikes we were likely looking at three groups.

The nice thing about the groups is the leaders can take off and do their thing; everyone else can run the same line so long as there is enough room between bikes.

I will be the first one in line to admit I completely a$$ jammed that corner. I wasn't paying close enough attention and because of it I sucked somebody in with me. If anything it showes that a losing a second of concentration can have disasterous effects. 20 seconds later and I would have been t-boned well done by that duelly, and even worse the person behind me probably would have been involved as well. I can say sorry over and over, but it makes me mad I let myself get distracted. I was leading and it was poor judgement on my part, for this I can say I will never forget where that corner is on the route.

A reminder to those that follow. Never fixate on the rider in front of you. Always look through the corner, and never assume the leader is infallable.
