I hope I'm not jinxing myself but I've never heard of that on a bike, maybe I'm just lucky.
I have had 3 that I remember. Always carry a can of Fix-a-Flat and a plug kit and air pump.

the groups I ride in are pretty good about this. Ride staggered at least 2 seconds apart.

Watch them at the restaurant as they sneak those little pills after they eat. It is no fun taking pills , but it is better than the alternative.

I have been on blood pressure and diabetes meds for about 20 years , like you said better to take pills than to " expire "

Correctamundo!!!

If it's not somebody acting like a jackass and drawing the attention of John Law , who pulls EVERYONE over , and finds 1 or 2 who don't have their stuff squared away , and now ya gotta help these nitwits get their bikes home.

Or the same idiot with the same issues on the same bike that screwed us up last week.

Used to ride with more of those clowns than I wanted to. Most of them are dead now. I have 1 bro I've been riding with for 30yrs.

Rode with a guy we called "2-buck Chuck". Always had to pull over for gas because he only put 2-bucks worth in at a time.

And nobody takes "meet at 9:00 sharp seriously. The show up , one by one , and since we're waiting for what's his name , let's have a coffee , or a beer. So by the time everyone finally shows up , a few are now legally drunk and the coffee drinkers gotta take a dump!

???? What is a BoB's???

Sorry I don't have the urge to take a dump after drinking coffee, but can pee 15' straight out. Once I puked about 40' as I hung over a rail on a overpass.

I've never had a good time on a group ride. Just follow along and people get ticked if you pass. You can't talk to anyone while you're riding and what's the point anyway if you're not riding?

I'm kind of a loaner, I guess. I just head out by m'self.

Sgt.Sully wants to know Dino or Syn?
I've never ridden with a group, except on dirt bikes, and we always broke them. But this post brought more commets than any other on this thread. I will continue to ride alone. I'm older and don't want to keep up any way. no place to go and all day to get there.

Oh don't worry, I already am in the Old Farts Club and have now more pills than I can carry to the nightstand. And I'm one of those weird diabetics that has to eat something every couple of hours or I start shakin so bad I could make you a milkshake just by holding the cup.
I tell everyone when me and my buddy Jesus got done makin dirt we rode our scoots around the Sick Sea before she died!
I used to ride with a group that all they wanted to do was ride to breakfast, then ride to lunch, and then ride to dinner! Each stop was at least 2hrs. Then they wanted to bake cookies and have a picnic! I'm gone. All I want to do is ride man!

That is the club that you and I both belong to now. This is the hottest touring bunch of folks on the net. Camp or stay in hotels this bunch enjoy the open road and don't worry about any particular model to do it with. After getting the second chance I try to live whats left to the fullest. I am sure you agree. Thanks for your story. Makes me feel good.
