Billy, nobody here has met you yet AFAIK, but to be perfectly honest you write as if you were a die-hard squid, not a "sport/touring/adventure" rider.

Maybe you're a stereotypical 'busa-riding, squidly bro in real life, maybe not. But that's the impression, and it might be part of why people aren't stepping up and volunteering to ride with you. Not all of us are into "banging wheelies in the middle of the night on the highway in NH" and other such... stuff.

It's a mindset thing. You enjoy what you enjoy. That's cool, and you're looking for others who are into the same kind of riding. Maybe there are folks like that here, maybe not. There are lots of ways to enjoy riding. I think you'll find more of what's on the bottom of this photo than what's on the top.

Sounds good ..... This obviously is not my crowd , You guys are all way too judgmental on here . Andy I’m sorry if some how I offended you . I was being Sincere when I said you were the only one that actually got me excited about buying all the correct gear and taking some lessons on track riding . I have never met any of you guys either and for all I know your the pack of guys that has screamed by me while out riding quietly in NH .

Will I do some wheelie in the middle of the night on an open highway with no cars around me YES , I absolutely will and have been doing that for 20 years . I am by no means and asshole rider . I do not weave in and out of traffic , I never ever buzz anyone , I do not ride beyond my ability .

It’s not at all Luck that has kept me from not getting hit or falling for 30 years on the street . It’s that I am a very Courteous , pay attention to everything type of rider .

Yeah, stick around! Where'd you get the idea that you offended me? Just calling it the way I see it. The Interwebz can give people false impressions. Your personality comes from what you write and nothing more.

Seriously... would love to see you at the track! It might open up a whole new world for you. Sure did for me.

Just because everyone doesn't happen to sip your particular brand of tea, doesn't make them judgmental. You're into your thing. It's not my thing, but if that's what you like, more power to ya.

(Frankly, if you went on a ride with me you'd probably be bored out of your skull anyway.... I tend to keep it to 20 over the limit or less because I like having a license, wear full leathers because hospitalization sucks, and stuff like wheelies just doesn't interest me.)

PS: Keep the streak going! As of this year, I'm at 30 years without a single crash.
