    Making OR Great Again Some of you may have noticed we are dying here. While there are many things we could do I think rides are what we need to do. But we need to do them differently. We usually post up a ride, tell the noob or slow person we will wait at each corner and don't worry......that isn't going to work. For several reasons. One, it's no damn fun for the slow person. They are basically riding on their own. So why not do that or find folks their own speed. Two, even though we say and mean we don't care how slow they are or how long we have to wait at each corner it still created stress, worry... anxiety....whatever you want to call it. And they end up pushing themselves. Maybe not dangerously but certainly above their happy zone. I know this to be a fact because it happens to me every time I ride with you. And I was told this exact same thing by a long time member here just recently. So I will plan 4 or 5 rides this summer that will be slower rides and post them up. If you want to come and stay behind me cool. But you will not take off and go like hell and wait at corners and basically create the same situation. If you do, I will pair my Sena with you at the corner and shoot you. If 5 or 6 of us lead a few rides like this we will easily have 20+ sane social rides this season. Maybe shorter rides around the Atwood Lake area for example. And we will still have plenty of time to go like hell on other rides. Might help, might not. But the current course leads to a non existent OR by this time next year imnsho.

    Maintain. If you don't the rear could hook back up too soon and you may high side. If you roll off it has to be extreamly gradual. Better not to. Keep your body wherever it is. If you are leaning off stay there, and be lose on the bike. Let it find its own way. It is smarter than you are. Avoid counter steering too, the natural track of the bike is already counter steering. If you add any it is too much. Everyone should start or do some time in the dirt to learn what it feels like.

    When you started to slide I would bet you were smart enough to be throttle neutral and not on the brakes. Since you didn't fuck it up the bike didn't need to save you.

    Rain the night before and it will be in the 20's. I think you are pushing your luck.

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    If you had been paying attention you would have heard Gojira as the music before they cut to the live scene, and the Representative that mentioned None Inch Nails.

    Ride 2/23

    For someone wanting to borrow a bike you sure are picky. Only certain bikes on certain days.
