I'm tired of people going down on the forest rides and I aim to make sure that doesn't happen on this ride. We will leave PP2 at 3:00am on Saturday morning so we can be at the forest by 7. We need an early start there so that we can complete the ride and be back home by midnight. hope to see you guys there.

I do understand the difference in the street and track. thats why i very very seldom ride street. I do agree its dangerous, and im not comfortable pushing a single limit on the streets. Im just saying, you cant stop the fast guys...why try? and they know the risk..that is their choice to take the risk.

and yes, i agree it might not be the best place to do 100+, but again, you cant stop them. and atleast they tried to help the newer ppl, by putting the three groups so that the newbs didnt have to use their egos to keep up
Negative. If you are planing on doing those speeds out there, you should not be bringing noobs and first timers with you IMO.

no need for names.

and why define fast? everyone has their own definition. There will always be someone "faster" and someone "slower"....

regardless, it is a dangerous ride. the individual makes their own choice to ride or not ride. understanding the risk. And if they chose to ride, it again is their own choice to fly to the wall over 100+ or to ride a slow pace, relaxing and enjoying being on the bike on nice roads...

Seriously! Not this again!

We all know that riding is dangerous! Period! You can die on the bike if you are at the track going 120, on the forrest or fayetville ride going 100 or ride to the corner store going 15! WE ALL make that choice for ourselves! Who are we to police other riders???? It is pointless in the long run!
