New Guidelines for “The Morganator’s” Group Rides...

For safety reasons the following guidelines will be in effect...these are solely done to insure a safer ride for everyone in the group.

The ride leader will set the pace for the ride...NO passing the leader will be allowed...if the pace is too slow or fast for your liking it may be better for you to leave before an accident happens.

A safe following distance of at least 6 to 8 bike lengths will be required...following too close puts you and the person in front of you at risk in case of an emergency stop. Anyone following too closely will be spoken to and further action may result.

Ride pace will be posted for each ride...if you feel your not comfortable at that pace it may be better for you not to join.

No unsafe riding will be tolerated such as stunting or wheelie riding.

Im sorry if this sounds blunt but in the past we have had some unfortunate accidents that probably could have been avoided if these guidelines were met.

Anyone having questions about any of these are welcome to PM me or call or text me at 979-251-6249...Keith

Our goal is to have a safe and fun day where everyone makes it home safely.

We are all grown men and women and are responsible for our own actions...its just upsetting to me when accidents happen.

Hah! I pass Harleys on my DR regularly. Last time I took it out with Keith I passed 2 sport bikes a 390 Duke. You could probably manage taking a Harley on the rally. Especially in the corners!

You didn't see the guy on the Sportster. Absolutely insane that guy is/was!
He passed Keith and I in a straight ( because we aren't looking for tickets) and Keith had to work to keep up with that psycho in the curves. I just let em go. I wasn't and probably never will be ready to push the Interceptor that hard.
Reminded me of trying to follow Jimrad down 3090. Just sit back and watch em disappear into the distance while uttering the words, "Fawk me"......

It sucks, it's the reason some of us stopped posting rides.
I became BORC and the rest is history.
That being said I can come out and help on your rides if you ever have a huge group.
I hope everyone is always safe and rides their own ride.

Shuhboogie didnt tell “the rest of the story”.
I followed him just to see how good he rode then left him in the dust just to maintain our crotch rocket image.

Can’t be letting the rift raft in on your rides. Slipping you are...

Now, now kids. Let's keep this civil. The conversation wouldn't be going like this in person. If you wouldn't say it to their face, don't post it. Keep that in mind and MH can be a happier place.

Don’t mind me. I woulda been on the ride but it just wasn’t meant to be. I’m always the first one to give the Morganator a huge sloppy man hug.

My current situation, sigh.

Look what you did Buck-nuts. You made him cry...

Kinda weird. I didn't think Harley had the ability to do anything other than potato potato potato...

I think its going great...i thought i was gonna get hammered for posting this thread...

These rides mean alot to me and i just want everything to go smoothly.

Sometimes i type before i think and it may be taken harshly but that was never my intent.

Ask @Skelator for a demonstration. Fastest and best ridden Sportster I've ever seen.
