I share your message.... A while back I was on a group ride that was made up of "experienced" riders. We had a meeting before we took off so that everyone was aware of the type of riding we were about to do, and we wanted to make sure nobody was above thier heads, otherwise they should join the more relaxed group of riders.
Needless to say, third turn or so on our way up 211, a guy lowsides. Luckily he and his bike slid between the guardrail and a stone post. He was wearing full leathers, escaped with a sore ankle, and rode his bike home. We found out as he was dusting himself off he had only been riding for a month!
