I see 'frustration' ...
i've never been on one of these but have heard all about em for years
what is needed is better planning ...every1 knowing the route ahead of time
not just 2 or 3 group leaders. maps for everyone.
everyone should be responsible for keeping with eachother, a group team type 'mindset' if you will..
if you're doing a 4 hr driving course you should have stop points every 1.5hrs
and wait 10-15mins to collect every1..
and you can all as a group advance to the next point..
you'll always have a few that need to shoot out front & have some fun (even on bike group rides)
but if everyone knows where they're going it creates less Panic/frustration when you loose track of a few or everyone..
even without any radios (bike group rides) this will cut down on Confusion,
cause you know every1 will be stopping at point 'x' along the way, etc..
the BMWCC forum is toast. for months now... the group will get smaller every year Until they fix that..
