The damned part for my bike (detent spring) showed up thurs morning... bah.. missed another one.
As far as one wheeled shenanigans go... You guys wouldn't believe who was doing them in the middle of the pack riding 2x2 way back when there were only a couple sportbike guys riding

Cly or anyone not used to riding in groups, fixation is the worst thing when learning to ride in groups. I had a bad problem with it when I first started riding in groups. Got in over my head following a few zrx's in Ga. last spring.
Being a nascar junkie (yes its true) but from years of watching the incar cameras I picked up something that I tried when riding and it worked for me real quick, its hard to explain while typing, but if anyone wants my tip I will try to explain it next time we ride.
I think I'll go put on the weather channel to see if their playing any southern rock in the background

That's great, sucks that she wrecked her new bike and all, but great that she didn't get hurt bad. Hopefully this accident will not deter her from riding, and maybe she can learn from it. As far as where newbies go in the pack; I think all the cruisers and newbies should be with the harley guys up front. This way they will have less chance to get left behind and need to catch up, also they will be in front of the hooligans, and the faster guys can slow and play catch up if they want to near the back.
One note about riding in groups with me, I pity the people behind me (I'm all over the road: Used to riding alone, and a Habit to be seen better by others) and I'm not the smoothest person out there. So if you ride behind me in the future, I apoligize for screwing up your smooth pace in advance.

Got direct confirmation. No broken bones. Just a couple of stitches on the leg.

|LytSpeed||I agree with you Jason - riding in packs is no place to fool around. I'm glad She's okay and no one else went down.|

Does my heart good to know that ya'll have checked up on her. Thanks Scot for putting out an update on her.
The dinner ride pics are up, and the site has been updated. Go to Boomer's Domain and click on the Dinner Rides Button.
I will do more updates to the site, after I return from our 421 trip. Until then, ya'll be safe!

If someone talks to her, ask her how she found out about the dinner ride.... I hope she doesn't say "lespaul85". Cause there was some woman on aol that messaged me about riding and I told her about it... I think she rode a yamaha cruiser if I remember correctly.
Anyways, as for the hooligans I'm all for wheelies and everything but on a group ride it's just stupid. It makes Butch think we're at fault for this stupid stuff that happens. There's a time to be a fool and there's a time to refrain.
As far as having the newbies ride in back (which is the place I like to be), I've read more group ride technique info about having them up front than in back. I don't really agree with that, but it is what I've read is the "proper" way of doing it. At least get them away from the hopeless hooligans.

THat is not a direct confirmation but what Butch told me this morning.

|LytSpeed||No broken bones is GREAT! I hope she chalks this up to experience ( or lack of it) and keeps riding!|

No broken bones? Is this confirmed? Last night I heard first that she had a broken leg, then I heard shattered kneecap, torn ligaments, etc...
Hopefully, no broken bones is correct. Either way, I wish her a speedy recovery.
