Sounds like the GW guy should not be in the sweep position because he sure didn't do his job.

Maybe the dude in the truck had his ass whipped by a biker or two at one time. And, don't ride with Goldwings and Yammies. Them folks are dangerous. I just had to drag this thread up again.

personally, those gold wing riders are some of the best on the road, through the goldwing club they get cheap rates on MSF advanced rider courses, you always see a bunch of them at the courses because they get a discount on their insurance for going every 3 years, they are well schooled in what is dangerous and what is not.
I would give him a break, last thing you want on wet roads with a group that is not used to riding with each other is someone in the middle of the pack getting out of formation and causeing a regroup right before a turn, the safest thing in that situation was for those who were in the wrong lane to go past the turn and then turn around and come back.
It may not be popular, but seeing as they were trying to enter mid pack, in the wet, with a turn coming up, I think the guy made a good decision not yo let them in. It would have bunched up the group and cut down on everyones breaking distance.
