    There's two kinds of group ride. The massive toy-run type thing shouldn't come with an expectation that you can have a spirited ride; it's about being part of a big group. That's it. And it will be...

    It's nice to do as a loop with the island. Might be an overnight depending on ferries. But overall not a lot of riding that strip.*

    there's a little rip out Garden Bay road, not suitable for spirited riding IIRC, otherwise yeah mostly just the one road. But north of Madeira Bay to Earl's Cove, there's almost no traffic and some...

    Stuff doesn't fall down as often as it should, which is why people still build crap saying "we've been doing this for years". Used to hear it all the time as a rigger.

    It's "not legal enough". And the dynamic Larson/Emery duo don't want the spotlight to go away. if your whole life has been dedicated to being a pot activist, what do you do now that it's legal?*

    A pumped-up 400 would be interesting, but it would have to do a lot better than the 7000rpm my Ninja 300 did at 100kph. Not what I'd call appealing for all-day riding.*

    Deployment times for automotive air bags are similar, and they seem to work? But they only test at 35mph (according to "the internet"). So you may indeed be on to something. * *
