I get just as stupid as anyone else when riding in a group. its that pack mentality i tell you lol. of course no warp speed or stand ups but you'd be surprised what kind of trouble a 650 will get you into. so again this is why i just ride alone or even worse w/ my cruiser friends
It's no different now then it was 20 years ago. Back in Jersey, we didn't have these "official" group rides per say, but we'd go out on rides with friends, who bring their friends... who bring their friends.... and next thing we know it's a large group of sportbike riders running a ton-up down the GSP, and through the Gap. Some moron(s) would end up going down. Same stories, same squids.

I'm glad no one was hurt. but HOW did they go down? Was it target fixation? 3 down in 1 ride, bikes trashed and no one hurt? It's actually amazing!

SHorts and tennis shoes = bad idea

We all know geared up or not, riding a bike in Houston we all have a few screws loose anyway
What happened was that we all rode down to this road off nasa in clear lake called Middlebrook.... It's nothing more than a road with some a couple of nice turns in it, nothing fancy just some minor turns. THe guy with the 600 thought he was Rossi on a suzuki but wound up actually being more like Pedrosa or Toseland. The guy on the 1000 and the guy on the 750 were following kinda close and didn't know how to react, so all three bikes ended up in the ditch without any of the three touching.

Well you hit jackpot sir.....there were actually two..... alot of people get a kick out of the fact that there was a 600, 750, and 1000.... all we would have needed was a busa for a fullhouse.
