The 7 Riders You'll Meet on a Group Ride

Maybe a bit slow (11 minutes), but I think this is funny and you can skip ahead. I am a #6 (8:34).

I'm beyond the sweeper - stopped going on group rides and just ride solo or with a friend or 2.

I will occasionally go on a group ride, just to remember how it is and see the characters, but will always defer back to going solo or with just a partner.

I think they forgot #8, the guy who thinks he can be the leader, but really just wants the adulation of people who think they’re cool by being in the fool’s background. They usually have a youtube channel and will be seen recruiting others to go on group rides. Their secret hope is that when the cops see them blasting away at speeds that would put their remains closer to smithereens than the normal smear, they won’t be caught for sheer numbers.

Where was the hipster who is constantly bumming sigs from the smokers, but then doesn't hang around for a conversation, because they are too cool all of a sudden... Lol!

He missed another group. The "gear head" riders (?) Those interesting chaps that.

.ride a Moto Guzzi, Benelli, or other " unheard " Euro" cycle
.have a wool scarf, even on hottest of days.
.ride with the old style British (wool derby?) Cap.
.smoke a real wooden, or corn cob pipe.
.usually seen about vintage car garages, or pre WWII aircraft hangers.
.complete with handmade wicker basket saddle bags


Just realized...this was about group riders. So, no, they wouldn't be on that list.

Yikes...I think I'm none of these... maybe #1 with setting up group riding events (only), but I'm always in the back of the pack recording everyone LOL.

You should worry more about maintaining your bike first, before adding any power... Like keeping the headlight fluid up to level.

Sure thing... Right after I install this new Power Commander on my front tires. The performance shop I bought it from, said the PC has to be installed in front of the motor, so it can tell the motor what to do. If I mount it anywhere else, the motor cannot hear the commands that well. Have you tried greasing your finger first, before opening the headlight? I heard a generous amount of KY jelly, usually gets the job done
