When you're riding in a group..do you keep up the pace with the others, even if it means going alittle above your skill level at times? or do you just stay at your pace, and look for others to stay with you.

I keep up. Sometimes I will stay back with the ones who are not as skilled as I so they are not lost from the rest of the group and they can follow mw to where ever we are all riding to. :)

personally..i like to try and keep up, and improve my skills by trying new things..but certainly not at the expense of risking myself or my ride..i to ride responsibly, especially in traffic areas, etc...but I still like to have alittle fun as well.

I usually end up in front, which gets me in trouble because I have a tendency to use a little too much throttle when faced with an open road. I like to change it up and ride throughout the pack but most of the boneheads I ride with don't want to be up front. I sometimes have to beg them to lead.

Isn't that right Mojo? ;)

I can only think of about once when I was in front of you. It just didn't feel right... Kind of like having your underwear on backwards.


I'm usually in the back behind the newbs.

In the flat out who will wrap the speedo more, I'm there all the way. Hittin the twisties, I'm willing to give it hell. However, I ride with a bunch of racers and they make me look slower and if there's a bunch of them, then I most likely don't keep up...but it's all good fun!!
