I was not bashing this ride. It is just not for me. Great cause and good guys for the most part. I have no basic problem with the staggered riding style if you maintain your position. What in fact was happening is the line was so long that the rubber band effect was causing inside or outside lane to slow down and then you have bikes blasting past you at speed. If when one lane slows both would slow it would be semi safe. I will tell you it was the least fun I have had on my bike since I started back riding a couple of years ago. I am sorry if I upset any Harley riders, I have no problem with the brand just not happy with the large group ride concept.
