Well, tonight I went for my first group ride. IT RULED!! It was awesome. There were 7 of us. They cut down the usual pace for me because i'm still learning. Pretty cool!
I experienced my first headshake tonight. That was weird. We cut off the highway onto this back road stopped and waited for the slower rider (read: Me!) and as I was accelerating through 2nd we went over a little washboard area in the asphalt and SHAKE!! I relaxed my grip on the bars and it went away. Mind you it wasn't a very severe case but it certainly got my attention. hehe
I also hit my first bigass eastern Canadian bubblebee at 140kph... loaded full of pollen. Damn thing nearly ripped off the seat. Like hitting a 5lb bag of flour and a water balloon. LOL POOFSPLAT!!!! :hammer
All in all it was an awesome evening. Just thought i'd share. :)

Sounds good :mrgreen:

Damn bees :cuss

I went through a small swarm a while back. Scared the crap out of me. I saw some black stuff floating in front of me & before I relised what it was I was into them. Stopped straight after to check if any of the little bastards had gotten into my jacket & where still alive & to clean off the dead ones.

The first time I did it in a group, I got all wet and sticky. (It rained and I had starbursts in my pocket)

my first group ride i was kinda pushed....ended up topping my bike out that night. there was like 8 of us. here in arkansas though you dont find to many big groups of crotch rockets. it kinda sucks. i love riding with ppl its funner riding with others. but when you only got two or three that you ride with all the time gets kinda boring i think cuase im a corner lover and they aint so i have to slow my pace down. every now and then i ride with someone who will keep up with me but not very often.
