Default Re: The All New Megathread

I don't particularly mind being followed or following, to be honest, but as you say, even at my usual 65 - 70ish on open roads I tend to find I'm rarely being overtaken these days.

Some people are leaders some are followers. I'm a follower. My riding friend often suggests a destination and I let him lead. When there's nothing in front he drives at, or close to, the speed limit but if we catch up with a vehicle doing, say, 59 mph in a 60 limit it MUST be overtaken.

I prefer it when he rides his BSA Goldstar 650 it's a little more relaxing (for me) today he rolled up on his MT07 and he's refitted his Akropovic exhaust which meant the scenery was a blur. I think I saw Mablethorpe but I blinked so I cannot guarantee it. I remember Spilsby but only because we stopped.

I don't mind doing either. The big difference is who you're riding with. Riding with friends is much easier as you know pretty much that you can judge how they're getting to react. When you're riding solo and come up to a group of riders then that's a whole different game.
