Ride to your own skills

MH fam, today we had a rider go down on 1736, and i had to watch this as he laid a zx14 on its side. The rider was ok but the bike didn't fair aswell. I ask you all to please ride to you on tune, do not try to do what the rider in front of you is doing, know your safty zones pushing yourself maybe a tadbit higher to improve. As you become more comfee with your bike. We pay to much for these two wheels fun machines, and our life is more then being all broken up laid up in the hospital with a high azz meedical bill. BE CAREFUL!

Agreed, I just about quit riding with groups because it never fails that someone goes down, There are a few very talented riders I ride with and trust, but for the most part I usually ride with myself

Group rideing is fun. DOn't give it up, just be careful. I like rideing with others even if they are new to the bike game. I;m not all that but i can hold my own, and helping others up ther skills is a blessing in my book.

Evo what are yoou talking about. I ride the sme bike and 3090 is not a bad road for that bike. Coach David was the leader an i stayed behind him. If you want to up your skills you have to ride better riders and listen to the advice they give you.

Dont be scared be respectfull, that road is alot of fun but it will turn on U quick, just like any other road, I personally dont like 3090, rough and greasy tar snakes everywhere, I have been taken down by another rider that was inexperienced and my wife was with me at the time, and was 3 months pregnant with our now 25yo son

Raven trust yourself and ride in away that keeps you safe no matter what. Remember at one time you were not there either and some body helped you.
