    Perfectly said. You will do just fine with us man! We actually had a pretty diverse group of riders as far as pace was concerned, so you probably would've found someone around your speed to stick with. As long as everyone rides their own pace, it's a great ride. And to answer your question, someone usually waits up every once in a while until all the riders have been accounted for just to make sure everyone is OK.

Although this looks like a fun ride, you all are a lot more experienced than I am. I have about 4 months and 2000 miles under my belt and am nowhere close to you all as far as speed through corners. I'd love to go for a ride with you all, but I'm curious as to how I would fare riding with you all? Since everyone rides at their own pace, out of curiosity, do we all usually meet up at the end of the ride or what happens?
    Multiple track days under my belt? YES.
    Enjoy track days more? YES.
    Ride harder at the tracks? ALWAYS.
    Enjoy the streets? YES
    Am I cautious on the streets? VERY MUCH SO.
    Did anyone this day have the desire to get to the top of the mountain first? NO.
    Was there a champ? NO. And no trophies were given. But plenty of smiles.
    If you're asking, how would you have fair with everyone? PLENTY FINE.
    You and I would have enjoyed riding sweep towards the back. It's always nice to enjoy friends. The feeling is nirvana when you and the bike is one going through a beautiful sweeper.
    It was a nice ride where I was able to meet up with some good guys. And it would have been nice to meet you too. You would have done fine. Ride your ride.
    Crashing makes you faster.. congrats on popping your cherry.

    Thanks for your reply, makes me feel a lot more comfortable when I go on a ride with you all.

    When did you end up going to the track to ride (how much experience did you have when you first went)? I'd love to have much more confidence in fast corners; though I feel like I still need some more experience before I head to a track to improve my skills.

    that question is best for you to ask better riders who would know and understand physics better. . I can barely take care of myself.



    Btw, any riding is meant to be enjoyed and have fun.

    No experience needed for track riding. But be careful though, track is crack.

    Wait, what? No Trophies? That sucks!!!!

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    GREAT RIDE. Can't wait to do it again. With the weather holding out like it has been there would be much of an off season. Looking forward to see you all out there. New riders are always welcome. Just ride smart!!
    It's not about being the fastest, it's about making it home safe. RIDE SAFE EVERYONE!

    Will do! Keep an eye out on the forums. It will probably be a few weeks at least until we do another Little Dragon ride, but we'll post one up soon.

    Off road riders are typically the best riders but you aren't contending with with two ton trucks. Luckily when we rode 49 last there was almost no traffic and most cars pulled over for us. Please be careful.
