Default Do you group ride like this?

80 mph on I-15.
Bike nos. 3 and 4 are 1 bike length behind bikes 1 and 2.

I dubbed it the tardly davidson group ride.

Edit: Illegal in Utah for 2 bikes to share a lane

I wouldn't feel comfortable riding that close, I like a nice cushion of space.

Anyone riding beside me in the same lane will not like me for very long. They will get the chance to back off, but only one.

I personally think its kind of stupid to ride side by side like that. Doesn't give you much room if you have swerve to miss something on the road. One way you're going into the rider next to you, the other way your going into the other lane, causing other people to move out of your way. But since I could care less if they wreck, they can ride like that if they want to. Hell, they should have one ride right in the middle.

Wow , kind of a vicious comment ... I see a lot of pinhead bikers but don't want to see any of them wreck .... To each his own I guess .

Last year a local OMG were riding on I-5 between Salem and Portland when suddenly traffic came to a stop. The club was riding two a breast and had less than a bike between them. When it was all over, 18 went to the hospital and one was dead at the scene. The lead bikes ran into the back of an SUV and the rest followed. It closed the busiest stretch of highway in Oregon for over 4 hours.

Understood , but saying you don't care if one of your brothers gets in a wreck is a whole different topic . There is risk in everything , I think a biker who doesn't wear a helmet is a f**cking RETARD , but I would never want to see him wreck . JMO on the helmet thing , I have good close friends that don't wear helmets .
