What's your ride? About how many years have you been riding?
What service, profession, or merchantable skill, if any, would you want your fellow riders to know about? BEnt will be creating a database so our riders can connect professionally.
Please acknowledge with a "Yes": I understand riding or being a passenger on a motorcycle is an inherently dangerous activity. As a condition of my participation I release Biker Entourage, its organizers and participants from any and all liability.

What is Biker Entourage?
Social motorcycling for urban creatives? Gotham gonzos 'n geeks on bikes? . . . Whatever you wanna call us, we think it's time to move beyond the handful of biker molds (riding clubs, stunters, 1%s, track junkies) and bring the Motorcycle into the progress that's unfolding around us.
Let's start by recognizing what gives bikes their potentially groundbreaking nature. Riding can be a foray into godliness, more profound to an individual's experience than the discovery of the god particle. Motorcycles bring relativity theory into the personal, giving mortals the ability to start pushing the c of E=mc2. If the m stands for motorcycle and the E stands for Experience ... then we've got all bases covered.
Add the human factor--the open minds and fierce hearts shared by brothers and sisters who ride--to a fun, outside the box, black rock ethos, and we've got a concoction that's sure to push some envelopes and raise some eyebrows.
You don't have to ride to come aboard. We're seeking partnerships with event producers, performers, PR pros, web designers & creatives of all ilks.

Biker Entourage was initially started for rides, shits 'n giggles but has morphed into something far more alarming.
AN ILLUMINATI FOR GONZO BIKERS
Harnessing the creative potential, intelligence & success of our area's bikers, who've an engine roaring through their heart and the wind on their face (hopefully not from the rider in front).
MUTUAL SUPPORT Based on the loyalty the motorcycle brings with it, including networking for projects, babysitters and bank jobs.
BIKES CHANGE EVERYTHING Ever done interactive theater, Burning Man or Bike Kill? Add inspiration from stuff like psychogeography & Ingress and you've got rides and experiences that recognize how bikes can change eveything.
We got a hella augmented reality adventure under development and comin your way...[cue music]...Biker Quest. You'll def wannna be a part of the beta launch. Why? How bout because it'll be nothing short of an epiphany of intense and ridiculous fun. Make sure you get an invite by signing up on our email list.
NO RULES . . . except these two: RULE 1: If you're a biker--and you've survived everything that's trying to terminate you (or serve you up with an assfull of roadrash)--you deserve props no matter what you ride.
RULE 2: We've all got different philosophies in life, but the golden rule is RESPECT (mutual that is). No fighting, endagering other bikers, or any other squidlike/douchey behavior. If youre prone to this then BEnt aint for you.

These are the 6 events planned for this season (and that we're gonna need help with):
Motorcycle Theater A paradigm shift in participatory theater, where our bikes lead us to the novel and the unexpected. Theater that is experienced not from a stationary perspective but in all four dimensions, and that requires our active participation as coconspirators. Using the motorcycle's spacial and temporal superpowers can add exponentially to creative possibilities in performance art and theatrical experience. Encounters will include burlesque and other performances in unlikely places, an ad hoc street dance club, and other surprises.
Scavenger Hunt and Interdimensional Motoportation Ride Romping around the city, where the challenges will include psychedelic clues, shots, the abduction of humans and other fun times. Oh yeah and interdimensional teleportation.
Three Dolla Charity Ride Where bikers donate their rides for charity by giving willing civilians and other unsuspecting victims a ride for 3 dolla (that all goes to a charity).
2nd Annual Talk Like Pirate Day Ride - (Thurs., Sept. 19, 2013) "Clearly disturbed individuals clad in pirate gear ride across NYC's famous pirate landmarks throwing eyeballs at innocents, engaging in a mock swordfight outside Capt'n Kidd's residence, and raisin' a wee bit 'o hell".
Biker Ghoul's Parade BEnt's costumed, two-wheeled participation in the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade.
Motorcycle Orchestra We will somehow attempt to publicly perform a song with the sounds a motorcycle can make.
