Let's roll!

Additional information:

In the club since 2006 when we only had 100 members. Times have changed and cheers to Gregg!

Tell us about your bike, or bikes.

I have owned/ridden all types of bikes over the years - from Honda CBX 6 cylinders to Silverwing and GoldWing. Just traded my 15 year old ACE on a 2011 Can Am Spyder. Love her so much - named her Bella. Just completed 6700 mile trip on 2013 Can Am RT Limited. Yes, Bella is still in the garage.

What is your riding experience level (never ridden, novice, etc.)

Started out 20 years ago with the beginner's MSF and then later took the Advanced Rider's MSF course on my Harley Sportster with a bunch of motorcycle cops back in PA.

What are you looking for in a riding group?

A group that shares the love and brotherhood of motorcycling and not just the brand. Everyone is welcome in this group and I missed you guys when I moved to Florida last year!

What Joan is saying about this Meetup Group

    Hey Joan,
    Hope you have a great ride tomorrow, I so wanted to go but have to be at a baby shower in Llano tomorrow…sheesh­! I also fell down the stairs so my sacrum probably wouldn't be able to handle the ride.
    I look fwd to seeing you next week at the movies

    Joan, you are very welcome. If I can make a couple of suggestions... Get a .22 cal semi auto (rent, borrow, or buy) and use that to learn shooting basics. Hand hold, sight alignment and picture, breathing control, and trigger control are all the same regardless of gun caliber. Just like learning to ride a motorcycle, start with a small non-intimidatin­g gun to learn the basics, and then apply the basics to the larger caliber firearm... Plus a .22 is MUCH cheaper to shoot so you can shoot more...
