stop listing what u sold here - nobody cares...






brena is right... cmra has about 800 licensed racers... of those i'm guessing at least two or three hundred or so of them run sub 2:05 @ TWS (Texas World Speedway)... so 1% would be two or three guys...

that's not something to brag about... we counted 20+ downed riders following a certained banned individual's group last year so do NOT go there... it's not a good example to make your case... further references will be deleted... that drama/bs will not be revisited here...

Posh.... this thread didn't have enough people suggesting that the ride leaders are responsible for the safety of everybody on the ride. It didn't even really get going....

couldn't agree more. i have been on rides where others around me scared me the way they were riding (ie: on my constant, to the point where they could not stop themselves from hitting me if there were an emergency. people in front of me that were riding very sloppy at high speeds that I am worried bout going down in front of me)

The best possible solution is small group rides with people you know..








When you take 100 people down 45 to Galveston it aint a big deal....but when you take 100 people to some of the sickest roads around Houston, problems will ensue.

im not talking about who was banned at all. Im not talking about that individual at all. never would i try to bring him into this and hurt his uncalled for hurt reputation worse. im talking about a total other individual.

Okay, cause I know you went on at least one and it seemed like you were implying you had been on others. Would be weird to me if you were regularly on the rides then complain about them (too many peeps) at the same time.

Up until last month I did these group forest rides quite frequently. Feel free to ask others or search for the old threads.

86/86


make it what you want...point remains that taking a shitload of people on a cruise is alot different than taking a load of people onto dangerous roads....
