A few more thoughts:
I don't know about you guys but I would have felt a lot more comfortable if I had ridden those roads in the daylight first. I couldn't see shit on some of those black back roads in Weston and Newton. Pot holes and a lot of crap on the shoulder. Some of those roads were just downright dangerous for us to be on.
Need to stay tighter and make sure everyone is okay. A lead rider (road/trip captain) and a tail rider, preferably in constant contact via walkie talkie.
Need to make certain everyone can make the trip. Questions to the group before a trip like; can you ride more that 4 miles without breaking down. Can your bike exceed all posted speed limits. Do we all have fuel, etc. You know, silly stuff like that.
I think it's best that if we're going to ride that we ride safely and that we all remain together. Trying to keep up with peds that can probably hit 60 isn't much fun for me. If I want to go that fast it'll be with something with a suspension system that can handle those speeds - like a motorcycle. Besides, I don't like ANY chance encounters with the pigs - particularly in one of those towns that begin with a W. The other half who got pulled over last night were lucky they got pulled over by Barney Fife and not Buford T. Justice.
Regroup... Plan B maybe?
What is plan B?
Mopedjay, Sabat, Conor and Susan, we missed you, but you didn't miss much.
