Actually done correctly with people who can handle a bike it can be a blast. Fun way to crave up a canyon cruise. But one or two idiots that "need the whole lane" to handle their machine and it screws up the pack ride.

In the days of road guards it was a great fast way through LA. But they frown on blocking intersections now. But was a time when you could roll non-stop red or green.
Best post on the subject.
Most people I ride socially with go zig zag formation.
But when I ride with friends, it's side to side, left leads, right mirrors

Bonus. U can scream at each other =-O

I'll take your word for it BB......We have a couple of friends that keep trying to get us to "do a ride", usually for a charity or cause that we support or agree with, and we keep giving them the "thanks but no thanks" routine. Even the larger ones around here that get police escorts that stop traffic just don't seem like a lot of fun to us. Maybe one of these days we'll try one, but parading around in a pack having to pay attention to all of the "group rules" just flys in the face of how and why we ride.....

Just to clarify I am not talking about a public invited pack. I am speaking of people whom have ridden together for a long time. Had to ride the back of the pack and work they way toward the front with their skills. I don't do public packs, I have to much invested in bikes and my health to let some nimrod hammer me from behind because he is looking at the people lining the streets instead of the packs movement. Or have some jackwad go down in the front because he got their early but only has 20 hours of riding time to his credit. A fold up in front can cost as much in capital assets and a slam from behind. Best to donate the money are ride with whom you know!

Road with a fatfuk that thought he would be the pace bike...he kept apprx. a 1/4 mile back from the lead guy & was annoyed that we would pass him. All day I was wacking the throttle as I passed him.

Inexperienced riders in the front. It's easier for you to keep up with them then vise versa. AND you can avoid them if something goes wrong. If there are unknown donkeys on your ride, be aware of them and again put them in front of you. Mechanical stanks coming from a ditch pump... I'd pass em'. If they had in issue with my actions I'd tell em' to piss off too!
