I like to ride on my own. When I go to the forest or the other back roads. I ride 5 - 10 tops more than the speed limit. I'm not into speed in the back roads because I'm afraid of critters, animals jumping in the middle of the road, stupid country/red neck drivers and of course "The Man" heavily enforcing the back roads. I like to enjoy the scenary(sp?), take my time and stop where ever I want. Most group rides go to fast for me and I do not feel comfortable dragging the whole group. I leave the speed for the city. I feel more in control. I learn to ride at the MSF and my practice grounds after the MSF was Houston Downtown, 288 and 610.

Don't try to stay with riders in the Forrest if you've never been there and they're faster. That's a recipe for disaster.

I was thinking about putting up a ride at speed limit for riders who've never been there and show them some good roads. Knee draggin is for the track though .

That sounds about spot on!!
