I want to put together a email list for road riding.
I used to run an email list for off road riding. That list was originally built off of "thumpertalk’s" fraser valley riders within it's forum.
It had built up to about 35 people. (18-52yrs old) It consistently ran for 5yrs.
We had a regular crew of about 6-10 that came out every weekend.
Until I messed up my shoulder and left single track. the list was passed on and is still going.
I'm a little frustrated with trying put together a regular crew.
As if now I hang out on 3-5 different forums! some international.
(yeah I work at a desk!)
In the summer I ride with 6-7 different guys but they are mostly seasonal riders. I find they are not riding frequently enough.
seem to always have an excuse not to ride. (not you chris)
1. the weather sucks
2. its too early
3. I'll be too hung over.
4. I only have 45mins to ride
5. I cant ride that far. my wrists will hurt.
So often I end up riding solo.
Mostly off road (20yrs exp)
Action motorcycle school Grad.
I have been road riding for 3 years.
So I'm not a newb def. not a pro.
this is who I'm looking for:
consistent riding buddies.. guys gals I dont care!
full class 6
responsible riders with similar exp.
I dont care what you ride be it cruisers, sport bikes retros.. (as long as you can keep up to hwy speeds) variety is cool.
I'm 38yrs old, Married, 2 kids.
(I dont care how old you are as long as your (fairly) mature.
* I will plan a few road trips 2-3 day rides, route them out and will post here too... as well many many day trips.
hope to meet some of you soon.
just PM me if you want on the list.
I'll organize a meet at a coffee shop soon.
