I still like to ride fast, i'm just smarter about it now.


Amen to that.. Just like my quote you first must be young & stupid

My choice wasnt in the selection,

Get the heck away from them as quickly as possible.

Last thing I want is some ignorant, dangerous noobie weaving around next to me. Most other sport bike riders I see are just riding along too. We nod or wave and keep on going. But every now and then there is some squidly nutcase acting the part. They'll come weaving up though traffic and want to ride right next to me... "HEY LOOK AT ME!!! IM ON A BIKE TOO!!! LETS GO RACING THROUGH TRAFFIC LIKE INCONSIDERATE NITWITS!" ...

I wave them away, ignore them or act rude, that usually does it. Personally I dont want other commuters associating me with people like that. Its embarrasing. I ride the same roads all year round. Im sure many have seen me before and will see me again.

I'd ride with them but only on a country road. I'd push them to their limits for a while and then settle back down to what ever pace I was doing. But in traffic I'll take it easy. At night on the hwy - thats a different issue.

<But come on! We all have a little squid in each of us>

I don't know any squids

I answered yes, since I'm always in the back of the group and 10 miles behind.

I tend to ride a little more conservativly. Mostly because I'm still bonding with my baby, but also because I like my life and the privilege of riding. I hope to be around and still riding in my 60's.

Hell, I just keep riding. If they dont feel like waiting for me to catch up at whatever spot they choose to stop at, well, I like riding by myself just fine.

If they are attracting attentions (read, Five-O), then I definitely drop back and have a leisurely ride.

I voted for keep riding, because as more experienced we have to reach out and
help the 's .....unless the squids are ego maniacs, lets face everyone who
rides has an ego, but some riders/squids egos will get them hurt. And these are the type
riders/squids I can't roll with.... cause they'll get you killed (knock on wood).
