Re: Rding "The Pace" (recommended reading for street riders)

Killer post, but the thing is how do you get the street racer people to follow it? Just throw it out there and hope they take to it?

This message should be a constant repost. I am just starting to ride my own bike...I take my course in a couple weeks...My husband is 10+years experience. We both pulled useful information from this article. Thanks.

The problem with the "pace" is that the pace is different for riders depending on their skill.

Person A's "pace" speed might be person B's "riding at 100%" speed.

Thats why most of the article talked about riding YOUR pace. The pace is set by a group and the gaps are adjusted on the straightaways. So much of the article was about knowing your limits as a rider.... the point was to use these skills and ideas to get your self safely and enjoyably through the twisties, and then tighten the gaps back up in the straights... it is in no way saying that Person A and Person B have to be going the same speed through the canyons.
