Group Rides

http://www.ridemotorcycle.com/

I just rode with these guys last night and it was great, all different bike types and skill levels! It seems like they do a lot of rides and they don't charge anything. Let me know if anyone is thinking of checking out the GR one, especially the Thurs night rides, cuz I'm all about meeting new ppl to ride with.

No kidding, there is no way I'll let them post all my $h!t up there. My info got stolen once already and some a-hole was messing with my credit so I'm super paranoid about what I let out there.

They seem like a pretty cool group of guys, granted it was my first group ride, but it was a lot of fun. We were out for about 3-4 hours hitting up the back roads and curvys.

Looks like they are a riding group free from motorcycle style specifics!

What was the cruiser to sportbike ratio?

When I went here in GR there were 3 sport bikes and 6 "others" including a Harley, an old Honda standard bike, a KLR dual-sport, a Honda Valkyrie Rune (sweet bike!), and a variety of others. It was a good time!

Im not sure I would want my contact info posted up. Maybe if it were restricted to members only... But there is no way I would post giving access to non members. Would be nice though to ride with some people. I have had my bike for 2 months and have ridden alone the entire time.

You should meet up with us for one of our Thursday night rides and see how you like it sometime. This week we're meeting out by the Shell gas station at Kalamazoo Ave and M-6 at 6:30 pm

That will work better since I live right off of Knapp just east of the Beltline.

I'm not sure if they ever meet on the west side. If you know a bunch of good roads out there I'm sure they would consider it. When I went we did very little riding actually in GR and we didn't even stay close to where we met really; we were out on curvy roads in Rockford, Lowell, Ada, etc. We put on about 100 miles because the weather and road conditions were perfect, if they are less than perfect then I guess they'll go less, like 60 or so. You should check it out sometime, there is no committment or anything so you can try it once and never go again or go to every event they're at and it doesn't make any difference.

I'll be ready in about 3 weeks, but someone's going to have to pick me up. I'll be on my learners permit for a while.

That's cool, I'm sure we can work something out! and you don't have to worry about keeping pace or anything like that. These guys are very safety conscious and won't hassle you at all unless its a safety tip. You'll get more crap for pushing it beyond your comfortable limit than for going slow.
