Never mind!;) I hadn't been following this thread because I wasn't on the ride.

A couple of comments:

I think passing on a double yellow and forcing people to panic is inexcuseable. I have been on a couple of rides where this has happened (NOT CLSB rides) and immediately told the group to go on without me.

I am not going to be the CLSB or SBN nagging nanny! I have tried to make my point a couple of times and I have resolved to break away from the group when I get the feeling that something is wrong, and I always will let someone know first. So far I've broken out of three rides that later had crashes. So much for "If you aren't pushing yourself you aren't learning!"

You're all a great bunch of folks and regardless of what happens to CLSB or SBN or group rides, it's been great meeting most of you. The sense of humor (and grip on satire) is high amoungst this group and the joking largely harmless and good-natured.

The "bickering" is a normal group dynamic in the life cycle of a group. This group has existed long enough that these issues coming up is a normal part of the group process. Those of you who hang in there and who are willing to be part of the process, to negotiate acceptable resolutions to group concerns will gain from the process and will never forget the people you have met as a result of this.

There are legitimate concerns being raised. Do not let it cloud your thinking that they are being raised by particular individuals. If you are one raising concerns that are not satisfactorily resolved, there is nothing morally inferior to your searching out a group that will address your concerns.

Good post Dave.

Ever since I went down in March your posts have seemed to make huge sense to me. I hope that more people can take your wisdom to heart before something bad happens. Unfortunately for me I'm a regular at the school of hard knocks.

Thanks again Dave.

I'm sorry to hear that some people were not happy with the ride last night. I had to leave early so i didn't go on the ride but i have to agree with what Brian said ride at your pace specially if you know where the final destination is at. You will eventually catch up and not place yourself in any danger that way. When various people get together there will always be different riding styles (not all of them safe) just remember to look out for yourself your bike and those in your vecinity and all should be fine. If someone rides in a manner you deem unsafe put some distance between yourself and that person and if you really get a bad feeling i would even suggest say your G-byes and head out of there ;)
In the meantime ride safe and keep the rubber side down

All of that never should have happened, You have my apologies. I am working on some things to keep rides under better control. Try going out with some of the old school site members once and then make the decision whether or not you wanna leave. That ride you were on was not typical of our normal pace or level of organization. trust me on that.

Let me knw via PM what you decide Gulp, I wont delete your account till I hear back from you.

Well, thanks to whoever deleted my post, I guess. Maybe I should have elaborated or given some sort of explanation, but whatever. I don't know you, Gulpa, but I think you're bein' silly. Have fun, whatever you do.

but that's just it, if you don't know the final destination and no one waits for the slower/newer people, what do you do? Go home? How fair is that? Everyone wants to ride, everyone says ride at your own pace, but some don't care. It's that simple. Pay attention to your fellow riders, your not alone. We're supposed to watch out for each other and it doesn't seem that way anymore. It's making me not want to ride with anyone anymore either. :( :(
