Slimey Crud this upcoming Sunday

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

I Ride: 86,000+ mile '07 ZZR600
Was a huge turnout, in the 80's, sunny most of the day.
Even after the chilly 52* start where I had on some extra layers to stay warmer, the first 100 mile jaunt to the starting point was chilly, not cold- but certainly not as woram as I would have liked.
the first 75 miles form there was just about perfect, but then I needed to shed the long sleeve shirt and then the T-shirt over the under armour too- open up all the vents on the jacket and I was back to feeling the right temp.

Was looking like some severe rain storms may hit, but I got home about an hour before they rolled through and didn't get a drop of rain.

A few participants got some performance awards heading to the starting point (for most of us that was about 80-100 miles form home)

but on the actual ride no recognition for outstanding performance, although we sure saw plenty of people getting such awards. Must have been a huge fund raiser for WI yesterday, I saw no less than 8 small groups of bikes pulled over getting awards for their outstanding performance. funny- never saw a single 4 wheeled vehicle getting any such award........
Things that make you go hmmmmmm

There were a few people on the ride that should have stayed home (and shouldn't be riding or driving anything at all IMO), some of them had the mentality of one pass we all pass- without looking to make sure there was actual room for all- I watched one guy almost plow the side of a grain truck turning left--the first 4 riders passed him (same direction of travel) and I saw he had his left signal on, but the next 4 blazed by anyways, I could see where the turn was so I just lugged along in top gear about 40 waiting, when one of the assholes behind me decided to go--that truck was already committed to turning (as he had the right to) and that idiot locks up his rear tire and slides his bikes slideways and just misses the rear bumper of the truck-- I would say there was less than 6 inches between him and that truck.
HE departed the ride shortly after that- probably had to re-think his immortality, his stupidity, his lack of skills, clean out his drawers and consider himself damn lucky he lived to ride another day.
Some of the others played jockey for position all damn day, making stupid passes between each other because each thought they needed to be in front of the other- a few of those passes were damn near fatal, seeing a car and pick up truck with two wheels down in the ditch and the other two only in the gravel shoulder to keep from collecting these fucking retards head on, well not exactly the kind of riding I enjoy or condone
Some other fucktard decided to (8 miles in) stop right in the middle of the road and remove his helmet cuz he forgot to put in his earbuds, then proceeded to weave through everyone passing recklessly to get back to his #2 position---that was when I went near the back of the pack to ride where it was much more spaced out (you know proper following distances of something in the realm of 3 seconds), that same guy about 40 miles later stops on the road again and did something with his earbuds as the group went by (atleast this time at the edge of the road) then proceedes to once again make stupid passes, close passes and force his way back to that #2 spot- one time making 4 bikes slam on their brakes when he dived in to keep from eating a truck head on....
He and a few others road within a bike length or two all day---fucking dumbasses.... traveling at lets just say a spirited pace well above what posted suggests.... there would have been zero time for any avoidance maneuvers had a deer or any of the gagillion turkeys we saw forced rider 1 into even getting off the gas let alone actually jumping on his brakes
Just a friendly reminder of how stupid people ride stupidly and why I am so selective in who rides with me...... I forgot the 3 "big" rides each year which draw idiots out to join in and this was one of them....... I would rather have the small well established riders who went last fall in 20's and 30's with it snowing part of the day than the 82* and mostly sunny and all the asshats---the fall ride was far more enjoyable!

I don't do group rides at all. I don't trust my dog, much less some asshat that thinks he's Rossi. I ride alone or with a select 3 or 4 guys and that's it.

I linked the information, but yes he was/is the founder of the ride and it goes twice a year so no doubt he writes about it- but I doubt he writes about it monthly- it is not that interesting me thinks...or maybe his articles are really short- I don't get that rag.....

I just go because the roads to and from are fantastic, the event itself- well I have never done the actual "slimey crud" ride, we just go to the Leland end of it to eat and view some of the unique bikes and even more unique people to be seen and then enjoy all the great roads back to home

I had more fun when I rode alone than anytime with that group yesterday....... really turns me off on some of these assholes that ride differently when they come on my rides where I set the rules vs some club ride where there are no rules and the leader is as much a douche as they are....
I guess I have been lucky the past 6-7 years that I have gone with, it has always been super cold and rainy or snow etc and it has kept the douche brigade from participating---so I forgot how stupid some of them get when in groups---- you know that peer pressure, group stupidity and all that.......
The ony other all slimeball riders ride the club hosts is the one that simply runs all sweeperland and trip digits or right on its doorstep is the norm and expectation, and that ride too brings in all the idgits with no skills and even less brains. It is always held mid summer, sometimes twice each summer, so weather never deters the idgits. I went on it twice and never again, Just too many idgits riding like fucking retards thinking they have something to prove to themselves and the others. I was told after the first time that was an anomaly and that "normally everyone rides really good"...... Nope- no the case at all

Any other rides, they are rides I host and have complete control and say so over - a couple times a year I have these "open" rides, otherwise I simply ride by myself or with the 3-4 riders who appreciate riding all day long on the tightest most technically challenging roads in the area where one simply doesn't need to exceed 70 ever to be really knowing you are moving it.......... and they just follow me all day know matter where I go- hell most the time they don't know where we are, they tell me that all the time.
