    Facinating. The image of Eugene Stoner (designed the M16 rifle) and Fernando LLamas (famous actor) attacking each other is... colorful!

    I often struggle with BIG groups because the peer pressure gets to me and then I (repeat I) begin to behave like a mad idiot. Going too fast, knee down etc.

    However, after my children arrived, I have become a more responsible rider (aka boring and old).
    I'd rather be "old and grumpy" and alive, than cool and dead in a body bag.

    Choose your riding pals carefully and choose your friends wisely.
    Not everyone who knows you is called a friend.

    I completely agree with you. There will never be a better partner in life than your wife. I really miss my wife not being able to ride anymore.Choose your biking buddies carefully-3-jpg

    I wish my wife would ride. I'm going to have to get a big old road couch when I retire if she is coming along.

    My wife says she will ride pillion if I buy the new GS.

    Obviously a brand slut.

    PS: Only me can call her that, please.

    One thing I learned a long time ago riding with my wife, is to never argue with your wife. You just can't win, so why waste your wind doing it!Choose your biking buddies carefully-8-jpg

    The advantage of both having our own bikes is that on the rare occassion that we can't agree where to go we can go our seperate ways and meet up later
