I didnt mean to imply that the riding partner would be a wacko. However, I have been on tours where my riding partner and myself were not good matches in important aspects such as pace, miles per day, budget, etc... which negatively impacted both of our rides. Why do that to yourself if what you really want to do is tour alone?
