    Great to see so many newbies getting bikes my girlfriend is looking foward to so group rides next year, after her first group ride she said that would be her last due to the pace, I kept back with her but she said it wasnt her cup of tea. Did I mention it was a slow ride Anyways I'm not sure what kind of riding styles the other girls are going to doing but Christine & I both think it would be fun to have 2 groups. She is still very new to the game.

    Sounds like an idea... I'm sure we could arrange for some "couples" rides.. ewwww... doesn't sound good... anyways.. lol.. I'm sure we could work something out where the girls could ride at a slower pace.. if a few of us get autocoms it could work out all that much better

    I was thinking of doing something like that this season, Leah doesn't have too many miles under her belt and a speed limit ride would be a good idea.
    We (the guys) can stand a slow ride once in a while if it means our other halves will actually get better at the sport. Time well spent.

    I spent all of last year riding behind my wife as she learned (minus a few short rides I took without her)... speed limits mostly... 10 mph above on occassion...

    Although I would have liked to be working on my lean technique I didn't think twice about sticking with her and stuff...

    and she really appreciated it... there's so much to learn when you start out (as we all know)... she felt more comfortable knowing I was there incase anything happened.... so she says...

    Just my approach... but if you can handle hanging back for a bit... I think in the long run it will help out.... IMO

    So we'd be up for a couples type thing... I enjoy riding... regardless of the speed... must be why I just have an F2... no sound barriers being broke there...

    That's odd Mike, I rode behind your wife quite a few times last season and she "begged" me to go faster and ride harder! I also had no problem practicing my "lean" angle.

    Just kiddin'. The future Mrs. Roket wants a bike now too. I support the idea, especially if it means she loosen the purse strings on bike parts for both of us!

    She better not get any looser, I already needed a board to keep my skinny ass from falling in. It was like parking 1 bike in a 2 car garage, too much room to move around.

    Just curious, just how fast do you guys ride?

    Last year was my first year, I only have a 4000 miles under my belt, so I would be interested in "slower" rides.

    I'm just curious because I think a ride at the speed limit would seem pretty boring to me now. I'm usually riding well above the speed limit on a twisty road, I'm just not at a peg-dragging pace and I'm not touching my knee down or anything like that. I also will slow down a good bit on a road that I don't know at all because I really haven't experienced many decreasing radius "surprise" turns. And I have no desire to approach triple-digit speeds on straight roads. (I will say my 4000 miles have been 95% travelled in twisty/hilly NH backroads, I despise the highway since I have no wind protection, and never cruise around in cities)

    So if a "fast" ride is peg dragging, knees touching down, etc.. in every corner even if you don't know the route, I would be very interested in participating/leading more moderately paced rides. (I feel like I'm good at planning routes and finding new places)

    Ben, most of our rides are "Stoneman" rides...and are usually fairly quick. We don't push all that hard most of the time...just tool alond 'till some corners come up, then hammer on through....then onto the next set of corners. We take it easy on the straights so slower riders have no problem keeping up. C'mon out with us...you'll have fun, we'll have fun...and we can all make fun of the harley's together.

    Sounds good to me.

    I was mostly concerned about the straights. Get on a long straight and go >100mph and it will take me a while to catch up.

    Nah....a typical day for is is 10-20 over the limit (on these bikes that's sunday driving!) on average. That way you're not wasting time on the straights, and you just keep going that fast for the corners and it's fun as hell!

    Of course there's the occasional straightaway blast or set of corners that the 'lead' guys will blast through at insane speeds, but it's never sustained for long, and everyone stays together.

    The ride leaders are usually pretty flexible too...if we know there's a less experienced rider in the group, we'll ride accordingly. Last spring I led a ride with Chris, Mike, Jeremy, and Shawn. Shawn had been riding all of a month, and I was well aware of that. I kept the pace very consistent and reasonable the whole time, and we stayed together, and best of all we all made it home.

    If there's ever a ride where we do NOT want to worry about people keeping up, we'll make that pretty obvious before hand.
