Group Riders Class Attendees---THANKS

For those of you who attended the free group riding class tonight, THANKS for letting this old timer sit in on the conversations. As I mentioned, I've been riding a long time, but I learn something new each time I sit and talk and listen to a group of riders. As David said, we are all "family" if we mount a motorcycle and ride. Those of you who attended----if I were to lead a ride with you in attendance, I know that I'd choose you all for back up leaders, sweepers, etc. Because we all sat in on the same class and received the same information like changing lanes, utilizing lane positions, getting separated, etc, that facet of the ride would pose no problem for me---we all now understand what is expected of us and can pretty much understand how we should react to various situations. A high five to David for conducting the class, and kudo's to Awesome Cycles for offering their facilities and material for the class....IMHO, anyone who rides in a group should attend the class to ensure a safe and trouble free ride.

And again, THANKS for letting an "old cruiser" like myself sit in and offer some contributions---and you all know I was kidding about the definition of a "staggered formation"---although I think I did see a guilty look here and there...
