Andy, I fully understand the thought and sentiment that brought you to make the above post.
As bikers, we should all understand the risks of our hobby and accept that our actions have consequences. Just like anything else in life.
I love riding my bike, and I love riding my bike with friends. I will be attending the SW owners ride out, and I will ride quickly, but not outside of my ability, if that means I will be left behind on some stretches of the route, then so be it.
I have found that I ride well with Torchwood and Bish, we ride at about the same pace. I would suggest everyone buddies up with a rider about their pace and stays with them for an enjoyable and safe ride.
After all it is a great day out, top company, great roads to ride, but we all need to be a bit sensible and not succumb to the 'Red mist'.
See you there guys.
