I am heading to Palomar Mt on Tuesday if anyone is interested in going. This is a normal day for me to go and I just joined the Sportriders so feel free to message me for more info or if you want to come with.
We are a group of sportbike riders and enthusiasts who ride regularly, with rides throughout the week. We reside all over San Diego County, but are one community of riders. Everyone is welcome. We ride regularly in the Palomar, Julian, Borrego Springs, Hwy. 94 areas, but sometimes we take trips outside of San Diego County. Periodically, there are overnight trips scheduled on long weekends.
We welcome ALL riders of ALL levels. Male and female; straight, bi, gay, lesbian; military or civilian, college-aged to mature folks...we don't care...are welcomed. The only conditions are:
- Must have and ride a sportbike or sport-touring bike (this is a not a cruiser or scooter club with Harleys, Goldwings or Vespas…if your bike has a built-in radio, it doesn't qualify as a sportbike).
- Leave the drama at home…we are here to ride and build friendships with other sportbikers in the community.
- No egos or drawing un-necessary attention (wheelies down I-5 is not a good idea). This group is about the enjoyment of riding, and helping others build their skill and knowledge of bikes. Beginner or new bike, no problem…we recognize that we all started somewhere.
- Most important rule: "RIDE YOUR OWN RIDE" (i.e.: within your skill level).
Our number one priority is your safety and ours, followed by a close second of "FUN". Please make sure your skill level matches the rides you choose to attend. Only you can prevent a single vehicle collision.
This group is only intended for riders, not spectators! We expect that you currently have use of or own an operational and licensed sportbike or sport-touring bike. WE ARE LOOKING FOR QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. This group is for those bikers that "REALLY" are looking to find sportbiker friends and participate in group rides. Your account will be suspended if you don´t remain an active member (some exceptions may apply).
We encourage member participation in every aspect of the group. The more rides you suggest and attend, the more you will get out of the group.
Everyone has the ability to post up a ride, or start a discussion. We do not censor the forums, so each contributor is solely responsible for his/her words/actions. However, if you stir the waters with un-necessary drama, your account will be suspended. We are a riding group…not a social gossip group.

You agree that neither you nor any third party will hold any member of the group (including the group's Organizer or any of the group's Assistant Organizers) liable for any injury, loss, or damage to your own person or property arising directly or as a consequence from a group activity. You also agree that your membership of this group is based on an "at will" basis. YOU are responsible for yourself and your actions. We will never tell you how to ride; however, unsafe riding habits, illegal activities, or placing other group members at risk may result in suspension.
DEFINITION: a sportbike is a road racer, usually a model R or RR motorcycle.
