I do about 98% of my riding alone . Hereabouts the cruiser riders are big on riding in groups. Now and then I will join in on a charity ride and find myself having to deal with the semi-organized chaos that seems part and parcel with that type of ride. Unfamiliar riding companions of unknown skills along with some unruly sorts that want to "ride their own ride" within the group.
These days it seems that more and more of the trike machines turn up. It strikes me that they don't fit in a staggered (staggering?) motorcycle formation very well both in line and particularly when cornering (apples & oranges?) The operators seem to drive a bit more conservatively than those on two wheels as well stringing out the group.
My thought was that it would be better if the bikes and the trikes were grouped separately. Has anyone on the board any experience with this? I'm thinking that sidecar equipped bikes may present a similar situation and someone has already addressed this issue.
FWIW some auto's are joining in the "rides" It just gets better all the time!
