Had a strange ride today

Went riding with three guys that I have never ridden with before. It was cool, BUT STRANGE. As I said before I have never ridden with these guys before, they were not hauling a$$ like my usual ridding buddies. We were coming up on some curves and I started to get on the throttle and LEAN her over, just as I started to get my speed up I realized that they were cruising and not SPEEDING. Then I realized, this is cool as $h!t. But that didn't last to long, we hit the interstate and they picked up some speed. When we got back into the city I found myself wanting to lead the way speeding down the road, until I realized what I was doing and slowed down and got in the back. All in all it was a good ride.

Re: Had a strange ride today

I prefer the opposite when riding. Have fun in the corners and cruise on straights. Sounds like these guys are backword.
