Thread: Need Fellow Newbies to Ride With

    Smile Need Fellow Newbies to Ride With

    Hi guys and gals,

    I want to see if there are any other newbies who would like to get together on Sundays to ride. Ideal locations would be slower speed runs, with less traffic and nice roads and scenary .

    Would also appreciate any non-newbies who would like to just hang out or give the rest of us some pointers.

    I've taken Sundays off for the whole summer to ride, so it would be nice if we could make this a weekly thing, but we could choose some other times if you guys and gals wish.

    If there's enough interest for this type of thing, I would hope that this thread can become a "sticky" too.

    See you on the road

    Hi Ko7,
    Welcome to the board. I'm not a newbie but I am interested in putting together a thread for newbies. I am interested in leading rides for you newbies and giving you a few pointers. I've ridden with alot of hard core riders and realize how important it is for newbies not to ride with them especially on intense long rides. I'm going to Laguna Seca from July 7 to July 21, when I get back I'd love to get together and plan some rides for any newbies that want to get some riding experience in a non-threatening environment. I am not a speed demon instead skill and technique matter more to me. This sunday I might be out of town but when I get back we can start something for sure.

    My desire for speed is not all that great. I'm very happy to putter along (?) at <10 over the limit, as long as there's good scenery and some twisty roads to keep me interested. I'm not newbie either, so I'd be interested in coming out with you sometime.

    PS. I used to own a SV as well, so I can help with any questions you've got.

    KO7 ... great idea! ... count me in.

    I may not be able to make it every week,
    but I would love to join as much as I can.

    This Sunday isn't so great for me, but it's a great idea! Keep me posted for future, I'll be in!

    Flying Busa & Gordopolis, thanks for the support!!! I think a lot of us newbies would like to go on group rides, but are intimidated by the experience of a lot of the users. This is my first season, and I've been riding every opportunity the past 3 months, but most of it's been on my own....Looking forward to it!

    I've been riding for a few years (I'm no expert though) and I'd be willing to join you sometimes. Just let me know where and when.

    Hi Ko7,
    Looks like you started something pretty awesome. This will be great training for me because I'm planning to take the motorcycle instructors course next sesson. Yahoo...perfect timing. I'll have to get my F4i on the road so I can go riding with you guys.
    Hey Ninja Girl,
    Thanks, riding is too dangerous a sport , I got a lot of help from my experienced rider friends so I think it would be nice to help other riders.
    I'm thrilled that someone even posted this newbie thread. It's about time. It freaks me out watching newbies trying to ride with advance or experienced riders. It takes time and practice. So Ko7 you're awesome.
