We've done a couple of roughly non-planned rides with friends. Just two or three bikes total. Any more than that, and people start getting fussy about where to go, when to get there, etc.
We've often set out with a plan to hit some place in particular, do that early, then kinda wander around after that. Sometimes we get sidetracked by an antique store, an oyster bar, or something equally interesting.
In fact, now that I think back, the weekend after Mrs. Juggler got her motorcycle license, we, on two bikes, met up with another couple, also on two bikes, for a short jaunt around town. We left the restaurant where we had breakfast at about 8:30. After buzzing a few suburbs over, we headed east about 15 or 20 miles. So far, so good. We got on the freeway. We ended up riding from Seattle all the way around Mt. Rainier. As we were approaching the park, I was contemplating how to get us in for the price of two cars rather than four "vehicles". It turned out it was "National Park Day" and entrance to the park was free. I think we got home about 8:30 that evening with sore butts, but pretty pleased with ourselves.
If you look at the map and don't care where you are, you're not lost.
