A couple of years ago I was riding around on the RC with my wife behind me on her SV650. I was cruising down a road looking for a friend's house. I realized a passed it...and was right at a spot to turn around. I grabbed the brake and lofted the rear wheel off the ground for about ten feet....and instantly thought...wow...that probably wasn't very smart cause Mary's right behind me. At that instant I heard the crash and screech of her bike hitting the road and sliding past me. It would have been fine but she got on the brake hard in some stone dust and went right down.
I hate riding in groups....you always gotta think about the person behind you.
