No hurt Jeremy, I completely understand as I prefer to not ride with people I don't know.
In my case, when I ride with friends, it is 4 bikes or less and with people that have at least the same skills I do or better.
The good thing about them is that they've been riding for 40 years or so (I'm the youngest) and also that they know every little County roads in the State and which ones have twisties.
When we go, it's an all day affair with 400 miles average.
Now when I go to the Mountains, I'm a loner and like to be by myself.
Every Thursday nite though, we meet at Sonic on 436 and 408 and socialize, catch up on news etc...
