Those joining Copper State Riders should have enough group riding experience to be comfortable riding in staggered formation at our highway speeds. We ride proactively with the flow of traffic. This is not a group for beginners or those just learning to ride in a group.
This group is not about numbers, but about riders who know each other and each others riding style and skill level.
In requiring a certain amount of group riding experience from our members, we are attempting to make our rides safer since we know how each other will react to unexpected events while riding.
Guest riders are always welcome. Please have them read and understand the about us page before riding. Please make sure they have group riding experience and are able to keep up with the rest of the group. If your guest rider is not keeping up, it will be your responsibility to stay with them and know where the next stop is. It is very hard for the lead to keep an eye on the slowest rider. It's not fair to slow the group down for riders that can't keep up. If you are a member and ride as a passenger on another bike, your participation does not count as a ride. You must ride a bike to be counted as a participant.
For more information on group riding etiquette, see this video.
Mistakes happen; distances may be miss-judged when passing, etcetera. You learn from these mistakes and move on. But blatantly reckless behavior that puts the group at risk will not be tolerated.
Always check our website the morning before a ride. Something may have changed and the ride may have been cancelled.
Should you have an issue with someone’s riding, it is expected that you bring it up to them (privately), in a constructive manner. Feedback delivered this way shouldn’t cause problems. And if someone comes to you with feedback in a constructive manner you should at least listen to them politely even if you don’t agree.
The message boards are there to discuss topics pertaining to Copper State Riders or motorcycling in general. We are not a debate team and this is not the place to make political or religious statements.
