I’m not the poll type, but we do have a reason for asking.
Do you ride WITH others more than alone?

I ride alone more than with others.
I ride with others about once a year. When you ride with others a trip takes on a whole different “feeling”.
First, I don’t get along with others well enough to spend a whole bunch of time with them. But also, everything becomes an exercise in democracy, should we stop, where should we eat, where should we stay, how many miles should we ride, etc. EVERYTHING takes longer, and I end up waiting… waiting… waiting… I hate waiting!
Personally, I like to go where I want, stay where I want, stop when I want. Of course, my trips are usually with my wife as a passenger… but she is the reason I enjoy these trips so much. In fact, she’s why most of the longer trips happen.
People seemed genuinely amazed that we did a 5000 mile trip out west last year “alone”.
I do prefer alone or with my wife as a passenger.
