Do you usually ride in a group, with one other person or alone? Why?
I typically ride with my husband or in a group. I enjoy riding alone but enjoy it more riding with him. I also think it is great if you can find a group to ride with that you're comfortable with. Nothing neater than a bunch of bikes pulling in somewhere together. That is sometimes hard to do, but we have a few people that we're totally comfortable riding with and when we get in our groups, the rides are enjoyable.

"Objects in mirror no longer matter!"
I ride by myself quite a bit. But, I love to ride in a group whenever I can. Today we had 15 bikes and we did 300 miles.
I like group riding because when/if someone goes down there is always someone to go get help. When you ride alone, you are more cautious. Nothing like breaking down in the middle of nowhere, by yourself.
But, groups do attract a lot of attention from the cops.

38 speeding tickets and still counting
I used to ride alone about 95% of the time. That has changed since I got the RC 51. I now tend to hook up with groups more or I ride with my wife. It is strange how many more people want to ride with you when you have a more capable machine. I now ride with one or more other bikes about 95% of the time. A complete turnaround.

I ride solo about 80% of the time. The wife and I about 15% And 5% with groups of 3 - 15 riders. Group riding is nice BUT it turns into a race. I wish I could meet a group of riders that respects life.
Just me, myself and I for 98% of my rides. I can't find anyone who'll ride with me......sniff,sniff.
I find that too many of the group rides around here are either (1)super-squid rough riders who want to pull wheelies into oncoming traffic or pose by the side of the road or (2)Harley/cruisers who want to take the slooooooow lane, turn their nose up at sportbikes, or pose at the local bar.
I like riding with other people, just seeems like lately it's been a solitary hobby.
Like some of you I have 3 ways that I ride. Wife, group, or by myself. Most of the time it is with my wife then some by myself then the least is with a group. It all depends on the mood that I am in on which way to ride. Most of the time it is with the wife that I like the most. Sometimes it is hard to find a group to ride with that is not out to prove how fast he/she can ride.
Too many curves...so little time
Hi all, "newbe" to the Forum here. I have been reading for about 2 weeks and have enjoyed, so I felt it's time to join!

I LOVE to ride period, in groups, with a passenger, by myself, it dosen't matter, just as long as I get to ride!
Ride and have fun! See ya!
