I like having one other person if I`m going for a nice Sunday trip, since I`m usually no where near civilization, it helps to have someone there if you go down. Other times its really nice to just go out and blast through some corners by yourself, and not worry if you`re going too fast for the other person, or not fast enough, or whatever. And then theres times that riding in a group (5-20 people) is awsome, just because of the look on peoples faces when you pull in somewhere. The group rides that are that big really aren`t for twisties, since its hard to keep everyone together and safe. So I guess in the end, I really don`t have a favorite, just depends what mood I`m in, and as long as I`m on a bike, whatever happens happens... atleast I`m not in a car

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

I prefer to ride either in pairs or alone. I don't feel comfortable in groups.

I like riding alone, I find comfort it the solitude of a long ride of just me and my bike. Groups tend to compromise too much for my taste.

Well, I don't have a bike yet, but on my Go-Ped (lol) it depends, sometimes I just feel like riding alone.

I haven't had a chance to ride with a group yet, everytime I call my friend he always shows up in a car with some lame excuse, like he got his finger nail ripped off at work, or something stupid like that. Lame.

I ride alone all the time. I do have a girl friend who is getting ready to ride soon, so till she does or hubby comes home from deployment and buys his own bike it will stay this way. I know it would be great to have a couple people to ride with once in a while.
As long as everyone is safe. Ride Well!
