I want all those who normally ride with me to know I actually lost 30lbs when I was sick; the bike was lowered in the rear 2" to help take stress off my ankle so I can ride... Im not THAT heavy...

Last saturday did forest ride, sunday rode to movie theatre in the morning and did a hard right, scraped knee and heard my plastics hit the concrete(just lowered rear two inches.) I went slow the rest of the way and checked when I got to the theatre. No new scrapes. My friend saw my tire later. The center was low but being a Corsa III there is no tread in the center to gauge the depth. It had so much pressure it stretched the remaining top rubber to the secondary rubber(see sideways pulls.)

Like I said, Im not heavy... Only 200lbs or so... OK SHUT UP

Today was first ride with this group. Thanks to the group leaders and sweepers. It was impressive rollin' up on Yankee's fifty deep. It was a nice touch letting the faster guys loose so the newbees didn't have to try to keep up. I have been looking for some safe riders. I will be back.

, 2 people went down, any more?

Glad ya'll had fun, what's the extent of the damage to the guys who wrecked? Hopefully the damage to the bikes and the egos is less than minor!

Great pic of the bikes at Yankees too, that's quite the crowd
