Hi Ellis.  Good to hear from you.  I saw Roger's email about folks not knowing our riding rules, so I had made the suggestion to Roger that he suggests folks read the very good riding instructions I saw when I first joined the group. He wrote me back and told him he had already made that suggestion on a previous email (I must have missed that email since I don't open all the ride emails when I'm up here).  Then there's always the ones that have been riding for years, but dong it wrong, and therefore dangerously.  Oh well.
 
In any case I hope you guys are having a great summer.  Can't wait to ride with the group again in the Fall.  Hope all's good with all.  Later.

Hey buddy
Good idea but will people be truthful. All the group rides I've been assocated with, GCC, Lebanon Valley Goldwing Club, Reading MC etc. everyone you ask tells you they know the rules of group riding only to find out on the actual ride that they knew squat.
 
We actually would have new riders fill out a questionaremutilple choice questions which helped us determine their true knowledge of group riding skills. If they passed they were good to go but where still watched by an assistant who rode with them at the back of the pack. If they didn't pass they were not permitted to go on a group ride until they studied and retested the group riding skills.
 
Just a thought.
 
I can see if I still have the test we used in the Goldwing Club or the MC, if your interested.
 
Regards,
Ellis

He guys,
 
I'm interested in finding out if we have many members that have never ridden in a group so I created a Poll for you to answer that question.
So, please add your vote.  To do that, go to the menu near the top of our page, put the mouse cursor over the word "More" then click on "Polls" and add your input.
 
 
 
Thanks,
Roger
