I'm not a fast rider, certainly not by the standards of people I occasionally ride with. I don't really get any kicks out of going fast in a straight line and as such the fastest I've ever gone on a bike was coming out of a sweeping bend. So I do understand why people by cruisers and other touring bikes. But I don't get it. Some people seem to think the pinnacle of riding is in a group, all on their sportsbikes, sitting in line doing the speed limit. I suppose both the national park and Mac Pass bring out the wobblers and other associated special people, and so I really shouldn't expect any different, but I truly don't understand why they even bother. Why not do the hipster thing and ride to the grounds for breakfast then la perouse for lunch? Why not go the wannabe outlaw pirate route and ride in, well, slightly more comfort. Why not just drive? What do people get out of riding the most uncomfortable bikes designed for a few hundred km to ride one of the sweetest mountain passes at the silly nsw speed limits? I just don't get it. Am I alone in this?
