Hey everyone, I'm wondering what ya'll think about something I've pondered from time to time.
I've been wanting to get a helmet radio (chatterbox etc) for my serious group twisty riding so that a leader can run out in front and call out traffic and serious gravel/debris etc. I see something like a game of leap frog where the leader runs out for ~30 seconds at a good but safe pace, the group can then follow and run a VERY serious pace with the knowledge that anything requiring backing off would be called out. When the group catches the leader after ~five minutes you switch leaders and someone else runs to the front to take their turn running a little slower.
Now keep in mind I'm not talking about getting a race pace on the street or anything too crazy but there are a lot of blind corners around here that have great pavement but you never know when a squid or cage is coming the other way in your lane regardless of the lines etc. The other advantage is that obviously speeding tickets can be reduced since the leader can run within 10 of the limit and warn the group or at least be the only one to get a ticket instead of the whole group.
So, anyone try this before, opinions?
And BTW, yes, had several people ignore the double yellow on us yesterday and I'm gettin' pissed. Wish I could get a sheriff reserve position so I could run these ****ers down and ticket'em for everything I could find, ^%^%#$^%^$.
