Open to riders of any type, brand, and style of motorcycle of 500cc and above. We will plan rides, have social events, and trade ideas on the message board. To join the Cowtown Motorcycle Group just click on the Join us! Box in the upper right-hand corner of the home page and follow the prompts.
You don’t absolutely HAVE to RSVP for a Meetup or Ride but we do like to have an idea on how many bikes to expect. It helps us plan things like food stops and rest/gas stops.
Subjects relating to motorcycles and the people who ride them are preferred but we do allow a little leeway because “the people who ride them” is pretty general. If you want to get real deep into political or religious discussions there are much better places to do that than here.
Please join us on one of our rides. For most of us this is what it’s all about. Just pick a meetup that looks interesting to you and show up at the designated time and place. Please don’t be late and please do have your gas tank full. Don’t be shy about introducing yourself and by all means ask any questions that you may have. The person leading the ride (Road Captain, Ride Leader, whatever you want to call them) will determine the starting point, route, destination, and all aspects of how the ride is to be conducted. Remember that riding in a group does not mean you surrender any decision making when it comes to your safety. Ride your own ride, and don't go any faster than you feel comfortable going!!
I acknowledge that by joining this group I am assuming risks, and agree not to hold organizers liable for any injury and/or damages incurred during a CMG event and or ride. All riders must carry minimum liabity insurance and hold a Class M endorsement and/or learner's permit. An organizer may ask riders to show proof of insurance at the beginning of the rides. The organizers of this group have a few requirements of it riders: Motorcycle 500cc and above; Class M endorsement or learners permit (you may be asked to show license); Minimum liability insurance (you may be asked to show proof);
You must attend a meetup dinner and at least one ride within 30 days of joining; Complete questionnaire upon joining, read carefully and complete all questions (No smart ass answers will be accepted); Profile picture must be of you with your face visible; Upon attending your first meetup dinner or ride, contact an organizer. This way we know you and your profile are one and same; Members must login at least once every six months. Any member not logging in at least once will receive an email asking if you want to participate in the group;
Members drinking on a ride are on the honor system . Regulate yourself but be aware that we watch for someone that has had too much too drink. If we believe that you are a danger to yourself or others, you may be asked to take a cab or leave the group. We ride to have fun and when we ride with a group mentality, the better and safer the ride is for all. Members found acting inappropriately may be asked to leave the group perminately after the organizers hear both side of the story and a vote is held; If a member does not like the flow of the ride, he is welcome to tap out at any time. Just inform an organizer so we can account for you. Riding is about the experience of GETTING TO the destination, not THE destination.
