Riding in groups is allways too slow or too many stops or bad safety distance habbits or stupid "I'm faster than you" claims etc.
Touring with one or two guys I know and like very well is ok and I can oversee the above mentioned things, but since most strangers are idiots when you get to know them longer than 5 minutes...
Best for me would be one wingman with the same habbits and interests. Still searching...
Into the dark side of our nature to look we all need. The energy, the passion there is. Afraid of that people are. Pieces of us it holds busy denying we are.
Riding is flowing through traffic like water through a rocky river bed.
