Nobody rides at the pace of the slowest rider and if a fast rider bins it the slower guys will be along eventually to help them out.

Now if you're actually traveling somewhere I get the desire to ride with folks with a similar pace but around here anything technical means you're riding in a confined area unless you head down to Hatfield McCoy. It's not hard to check and make sure everyone got back to their trucks at the end of the day.
I am more talking about the clusterfuck that is usually a .net ride. Bikes not being anywhere near ready/safe to ride, riders showing up late, having to lend gear to people who didn't bring any, bikes that wont start, run right, etc. Not really talking about from a speed standpoint as myself and others have stopped waiting for everyone and just meet them at any intersections. If a rider is missing for longer than his ability should allow I/we go find them and help them. Hell ask Rob (slider) about me riding at the back to help out when people may be struggling. I used to worry about the pace and being frustrated having to wait on people, not anymore. It is expected and I now enjoy the couple min breaks I and others get waiting on people to catch up. I am not getting any skinnier nor younger so I appreciate the breaks.
