We had about 2/3 of the group on SuperMotos last week. This group really doesn't have formal rules other than the obvious:

1) Ride your own ride at a pace which is safe for you personally and don't try and chase faster riders because it's a recipe for an off-road event.

We had a few folks at the campfire there asking for other riders to exercise some moto-courtesy. If you're not particularly fast in corners please don't pass or jump the rest of the group at stops, if someone is right up your tail...wave them around...heck...I'm not the fastest dude by any means...*I* routinely wave folks around...

I think it was fast-in-a-straight-line passing & then park it in the corners.

I am now the official sweep I think though so I dunno

And no waving someone by & pulling a Murder-Baby after you pass

Fast in the straights an slow in the corners is DANGEROUS group riding. If you feel someone on your ass in the corners, don't speed up in the straits, wave them by instead. This is not a dick measuring contest.

Your ass will get thrown off the Wednesday Ride if you continue to do this after being warned.

Yeah the bottom line is it’s Lee’s ride and no one should have to be policing it. People running in the front often times can’t really even observe the shenanigans.

If someone is up your ass for more than two corners in a row wave them by—period. It’s an indication that A) They’re faster than you or B) They’re trying to be...If it’s the latter...well...at least you get dinner and a show...

If I run up behind the leader at a marker, stop or a break somewhere—that’s pretty much an indicator that my intention is to run dead-level with that guy for a while. If that’s not your intention or you don’t have the skills or metal tenacity to hang there...then...wave someone else by.

What Chris said— it’s not a dick measuring contest...it’s not something we hand out little gold trophies for at the end.

When *is* the dick measuring contest? Asking for a friend.

Oh yeah. I'm also kinda thrashed after running to and from Tacoma yesterday. The ride up, with an exploration of 507 was nice but slab-bombing it back around 10pm was pretty damn brutal--Hawk GT + high winds at 90mph has left me full of aches today.
So, what I'm sayin' here is I prolly won't see y'all tonight after all.

I'm an asshole & give everyone nicknames. Murder-Baby = Harrison. Dexter fans will get it.

Murder-Baby was a little too hot for the corner....

Angel hasn't been on one of the Thursday rides as of yet

I'm glad I got Dave and Matt to take care of all the shit going on behind me, thanks guys. Leading you just don't see much except at the stops.
Good ride tonight thanks everybody.

Hey, I know that dude... And that one... And that one...

Bunch of Shenanigoons to be sure, but at least they're a proper bunch of Shenanigoons.
