My apologies to the "bruised" 6. I should have had the foresight to run a slower pace the first time up. The important thing is that everyone walked away. You guys didn't even get the BBQ sandwich.

The ride to 33 was great! I figured we were all experienced and was a bit eager to show the prowess of the Elise.

And to confess, it did broke lose. I had a moment as the car fish tailed. I was very lucky no cars were coming the other way.

Lesson Learned:
Large Group + Fast Bikes + Testosterone + RT 33 = Good Chance of Crashing.

Pictures - I took some, but will post them only if all of you are OK with it. Let me know.

Redemption Ride?

Not your fault at all man. We had all been there before. Most of us many times before. I enjoyed it, I was just a victem of target fixation. I was pretty much right on his tail when he went down and followed him right to the ditch. Had a great day and I am glad noone got seriously hurt. Your car is sick man, I want one!!!!I got some video too. good meetin ya man.

Yeah that was a blast today. I still would like to know what happened with that first guy. I am not sure if he just just got in over his head or what. I keep going over and over in my head what I saw and I can't think of any reason he stood that bitch up.

I was the second to last in the group and only saw 2 bikes in front on me, Dark & ?Mnster?. They went into the ditch and I fixated on both of em an followed them in. Not really sure, but I think I remember going inverted over my handlebars at one point.
