I know this may seem strange coming from some one who usually is sarcastic on this here Internets but bare with me.

Lets go with a compliment type thread. Who do you like riding with the most in the FR?

Are they funny, a good rider, always have a beer, have the extra parts you forgot, push you to do better or are just nice to watch ride from behind?

Well, I haven't ridden with anyone from this forum yet.
My MTB instructor is super encouraging though and he always has a nice word for me after I get through a big climb with out hopping off to hike n bike it.
He's pointing out personality traits I didn't know I had.

In all my years of riding I've met a handful who had even heard of mtbr and no one who, if they even say they're a member, could remember their username. Maybe one or two.

That said, I ride best with someone who isn't so much stronger a rider than me that they can match my pace without severely curtailing their normal speed, which cuts out about everybody! Oh yeah, someone who's as much of a wuss descending. That cuts out everybody else. So I mostly ride alone. Scheduling has a lot to do with it as well.

edit: re scheduling---I've always been able to ride during the week and none of my friends had the same schedule. I stopped riding crowded trails on the weekend even if it was with my friends, mostly I work weekends. You know they'd say "hey, we're riding Lair of The Bear Sunday at 9am, you in?" "Aaaah, well, I already hit that Thursday morning, didn't see anyone.
Thanks anyway."

You guys are weird, I ride with at least a dozen people from this forum. Its strange so many people ride alone. I do at times, but I usually ride with friends.

My vote is for Full Trucker (Evan). He's always got some funny story, frequently has beer before/during/after rides and any time I think about bailing he calls me out for being a pansy so I end up finishing the ride. He's also the guy who came up with the Pint to Pint. Gotta like a guy who thinks up something like that.

If you want a lot of breaks while climbing, I nominate me

Matt, promise some beer for the next ride and I'll vote for you.
Usually have beer so it'll just be standard. And the t.i.t.s. group is a good bunch. Kevin you started that ride 2 1/2 years ago, wow. Oh and PBRme! you were definitely in the running, always wanting to ride more and constantly having beer/booze etc. However Full Trucker has better stories.

Second PBR's nomination

I will have to agree with PBR, the TITS crew are fun group to roll with, I have missed riding with them. I liked riding with MGE but that admission brings into question my judgement and my neurotic need for punishment.

Without a doubt, SkaredShtles (baconboy). Never even ridden with him, but just know from his all around awesome-ness here on the forum.
Plus, he's from Michigan.
2nd would be that andychrysler guy, but haven't seen him around in years.
