I also gotta agree. There are just too many variables to be pushing it out there on the street. If you feel uncomfortable with how hard you're trying to keep up then just forget it slow down and tell the other riders in the group how you feel.

The best thing is to go at your own pace, other experienced riders will listen to you but most will forget this when they are riding.

Seems like the only thing the kid did wrong was trying to keep up with the group.

This should be a lesson to new 250 riders that a bike is a bike, if you do not stay within your limits this can be the result.

If you are in a larger group with bigger bikes, take your time and go at your own pace.

This is why I hate group rides , just last night I was with a group that felt that poping wheelies and riding through cars at 120 mph was the way to go to a bike hang out.

We got there , got kicked out by the cops (there was nothing going on) I excused myself and left.

I just don't feel comfortable riding like honestly ,specially on a heavy traffic highway.

That's such an easy mistake to make when you're a newbie, especially when you feel pressured to keep up with the group. It can be as little as one or two seconds from shit hitting the fan to you ending up dead.

RIP. Never like seeing these.

Good choice man, definitely not worth hanging out with riders that have that sort of mentality. They're accidents waiting to happen.

Another thing that he did wrong was going racing around the canyon roads with 1 month experience under his belt, and since most people don't ride more than once a week then probably about 100 miles tops

Wow this is really sad to hear, makes u really think about how easy and quickly it can all end especially on our bikes, one small mistake can end in this.
