    Carlos, I’m so bad I refuse to participate in any social media other than a couple of car blogs. No Facebook,Instagram, Twitter or anything similar. kiss

    It seems each and every time over the last forty years I try to go on one of these club drives some people insist on driving like complete fools, risking the lives and property of people they encounter.  I enjoy going to car shows in parking lots or meetings at restaurants etc. but no so much the driving in groups.

    Driving in groups can be fun but it needs a good organization and "moderation". Also, there need to be clear rules, especially when it comes to overtaking and keeping your distance to the next car. Those who break these rules need to be excluded instantly. It happened only once during my many group drives but that idiot drank three beers (with alcohol, organizers said alcohol free beer is OK) during a stop and had it coming. We actually wanted to call the police when he insisted on driving after the stop but the organizer excluded him and called him a taxi (we don't know however if he took that taxi because we drove away, so I guess he drove home in his own car). Wasn't a pleasant situation for the organizers...or us. Other than this single incident, it was always fun and pleasant, very nice people, even those who thought we were driving too slow (complaint to the organizers) because they were young and "dynamic" and didn't understand what can happen if you drive too fast and/or without proper rules and organization in a group of 10-15 cars.

    Long story short: You should try it again but make sure you don't have to deal with some nut jobs.

    I understand what you mean Leawood, I been to a couple like that, and like I mentioned above, it happened always in sportbike rides, so I stopped going to those. But it can be done differently, it's up to the organisers and people involved, in this case many of us know each other from the Spanish forum, so its like if you did a drive with the people here on rennteam, it would be fine. And others you know from personal life too, so its also good. Its not a bunch of strangers that meet up. And those that are new, conform to the mayority and the example that is set.
