Shut your mouth! Post accident many said he had no business being in the middle of the intermediate pace pack. Issues with holding a steady line in turns and maintaining a safe distance.

I was too far back to see he wasn't in the correctly paced pack for his skill level.

Not much good luck with that bike... Sucks dude. Happy to hear you made it through relatively untouched.

Was the guy even apologetic? Did he cough up some funds or what? How bad did his bike get wrecked?

Seriously, the guy's paying for the repairs, right? What a tool. I hate group rides.

I know for me, when I have two near back-to-back accidents or close calls. I tend to hang it up for a bit and write off the next few weeks while I reassess how fast my angels can fly.

I've been talking to the other rider and we're working it out. Turns out he cracked two ribs which is real unfortunate. Sincere but I'm not letting him off.

Not saying it's everyone and the world's fault. I made the decision to ride in those conditions too but it's a lesson for him and everyone else on what NOT to do.

Sal,

Glad youre ok. But as other have said, when youre riding with a group that you haven't ridden with before - its in your best interest to stay clear of retards.

Last year around this time I met up with a group of about 40 or so riders. It was pretty cold that day maybe 50ish degrees. But the sun was out. I immediately look at my buddy that I had showed up to the meet with, and say "Hey, not sure what your plan is but, im staying in the back. I don't know these guys, and judging from most of these dudes bikes they are gonna want to show off."

We ride from Kingstowne about 15 miles of highway to get to some twisites. Literally the 2nd turn of the road, guy comes in too hot and dumps the bike. Guy behind him target fixates, and dumps it too. My buddy, even though he kept some distance, was not able to avoid the GUY sliding in the middle of the road. He literally drives his front tire into the back of this dude. I don't know how but he kept his bike up.

If I was as close to these guys as I usually am when Im riding with people that I know, I probably would have taken a nice slide too.

For a fairly new rider, you still seem to be making headway in the right direction. Lesson learned. Count your blessings, and keep moving. Make dude pay for your shit. you can call insurance without calling cops.

Ride safe brothaman

Noted, great points I understand your message. Gunna stay away from group ride for a bit. At least until the bike is back in its previous form. Still feels broken to me
