Ok, I'm sick and tired of this crap. This last post has lead me to this and I want to shed a little light.
First of all I'm NOT against group rides as long as they are done safely.
Second: If YOU are going to take 'Riders' on a group ride it goes farther than posting it on the board and showing up.
Third: Just like the newb rides a few years ago (And to my knowledge there were NO crashes) A Quick 2 minute brief on Where, how, what you expect and what the riders can expect. The old 'Ride your own ride". and read 'THE PACE' which has been posted many times on this board.
Four; If you want to see what your bike can do or need to prove you have a bigger set than the guy ahead of you....Take it to the Track! Troy has fantastic track days almost every month and for $160 you will ride more and harder than you ever have in a safe environment. If you like it, race bikes are CHEAP and your riding level will greatly improve.
So flame away.
