I had to lay a bike down on a group ride..
There was some idiots that just decided to brake because they were going into a corner too hot. This was like 200 feet before the damn corner. Kid had a brand new 955i and it was his first bike. Freaken idiot. Needless to say one of the ride "leaders" told him and his buddy to go the fak home. I won't do group rides that much anymore or I will usually wait five minutes after the last person leaves (in a group of less then 10). I'd rather ride my own style. That and I wouldn't want someone to try and keep up with me and get over their heads and vice versa.
hehe....guess Im the odd man out....I wait the requisite 5 mins....then go hauling ass up to do some "schooling" as they get passed
so much fun....even better if there is a group of harleys at the bend and they all get passed!!!
that is the damn funniest thing you will ever see.
did that on a ride upto Prescott once.....we took it easy on Yarnell(well known for the popo)and once we stoppe out in a place called Nowhere AZ, got some water, then as we were taking off a suburban passed us over the DY.
Me: "I dont think so" in my head.....I naled the throttle 1st ger lifted it passing them an proceeded to start hauling ass in the real twisties(and if you have ridden this the spars mountains are the best part)
the rest of my group figured I would be the guy to hang back cuz I dont like cars calling in my plates and shit........but when I jammed off they was like "ok so its gona be like that huh?"
we made record time into town.....
a gruop of harleys was taking up both lanes in the merge out.in area so they got passed one by one.............another ways up another group of em doing the same thing only no merge area....I crossed it and went to the pins in 3rd....quick downshift into 2nd as corner came up and at the apex...i was out of there.
we got into town relatively at the same time(my group and I)and were parked sipping on iced tea by the time the Harleys made it up there......they was lookig all hard and shit looking for us....they found the bikes and started crowding around......I let my friend Rick do the talking as I have a bad atitude sometimes....he got them all calmed down because it was looking like a fight was about to start
all they had to do was move out of our way was all...........wouldnt have been no problem otherwise
