For the past decade, Joanne and Gareth Morgan, two semiretired motorcyclists from New Zealand have been living the lifestyle of their dreams. They've probably been living the lifestyle of your dreams, too. They've been traveling the world on motorcyclists with their closest friends, and have ridden across all seven continents. Are you jealous? You will be. Some of their routes included Venice to Beijing, Florida to Alaska, and South Africa to the United Kingdom.
Their latest expedition was across North and South Korea. This was the first ever journey across Korea in almost 70 years since the Korean peninsula's division after World War II.

Having ridden in groups with riding styles ranging from military drill team precision riding formation down to some total free-for-alls, I have had the opportunity to look at many aspects of group riding and develop some preferences. The classic question for group riding is how tight and crisply is your group going to ride. The sub-questions are how safe do you want to be and what level of focus and reaction time are the riders comfortable with.
The three types of Motorcycle Group Ride Formations we'll look at are Military Precision, Free For All, and Compromise.
