Yea great ride tonight, guys! Sorry I wasnt able to stay & eat Del, I had a woman to attend to I will definately be returning in the upcoming weeks, this time to rail a bit harder. I'll give you a heads up when I do.

Was great being able to really ride after two weeks of nothin. Mike, you did well. Gave me an excuse to hold back a little, essentially making it a safer ride on unknown roads. Let us know when you wanna ride, post up or whatever. We'll be seeing you around I'm sure, you seem like a nice guy!

Sorry I didn't see your post last night. I could meet you somewhere near Cornelius road and Hwy 26 about 9:30 this morn. That should get us back around 3:30-4pm. I'll check the forum again in a bit and we can work something out.

I dont want you to feel like a tag along, I hope you didnt. Its Great having you along!

To me its not about keeping up or whatever, its just being out there with friends and having fun. If we get split up a little its no biggie, we just meet up at the next intersection or stop. Most important is to be confident in what you can do at all times and be ready for the unexpected, dogs running out of ditches, cars pulling out of short sight distance driveways, gravel in the road, branch or stick that fell off a landscape or farm truck. You are the one that has to pay the price if something goes wrong not the guy you are trying to catch or follow.
Do you know if you can change up a line mid turn or brake hard in the turn? You might have to. If you are thinking about that it can help you look as far ahead as you can, peeking through the trees bushes, widen your field of view and maybe not be so surprised. That will also help you ride your own ride and not get over your head. Just because someone might feel like taking a risk and running hard on blind corners doesnt force you to do it too.

Wow that was a long post for me.. anyhow Always come your never TO SLOW!!

don't get me wrong, I enjoyed riding with you guys, it was a new experience for me as I ride solo 99.9% of the time. Maybe it's my inexperience, but I just as soon assumed that when riding with others, as in a 'group' ride, you tend to stick together as a group. But I do consider myself to be new to riding even though I have been on the bike a while now. Thanks for the encouraging words

I had a blast and look forward to riding with you or anyone else soon
