Yeah man. You need a second bike(or third).

Personally, I stick very firm to a group etiquette - If I choose to peel off I tell someone, so I don't waste someone's time making them look for me or wonder if I'm dead. Or not... depends upon the group.

First rule in group etiquette: Don't ride in groups. The closest I will come to a group ride is 3 or 4 people that really know each other. Anything else takes the fun out of it and more often than not somebody gets hurt or pissed - life's too short.

Nope at that time we were tooling around WV. We were going to do Fort Valley on the way back, but we decided to stay away from Front Royal and play on the other side of Thornton's Gap.

Yep... I prefer about 4-5 like minded folks. Makes for a good day. The group was 2.5 times that. Ish...

We went south on 675 and there were 2 (one red, one silver) RT's going the other way.
