    Posted Resources in the discussion area.

    Folder: Motorcycle Safety Information & Resources

    1. MSF Group Riding Basic Guide

    2. General rules for motorcycle riding

    Group Riding Guidelines for Streetbikes There are 11 topics. Here are a few.

    1. Group Riding Guidelines for Streetbikes - Part 1 Group Riding: Why and Why Not?

    2. Group Riding Guidelines for Streetbikes- Part 2 RULES: Who Needs them?

    3. Group Riding Guidelines for Streetbikes- Part 4: Road Captain's Role-Preparing for a Group Ride

    4. Group Riding Guidelines for Streetbikes- Part 5: Rider’s Job: Preparing for a Group Ride

    I believe we all want to ride together at a safe and reasonable speed, being attentive & constantly scanning the horizon for potential obstacles (cars), to minimize the dead-time associated with perception/reaction & allow ourselves the maximum possible time & distance to avoid an accident.

    PRACTICE makes a rider less of a threat to himself and other riders. Lets work to ensure we have a safer riding season. COME ON ARE YOU IN?

    I'm glad we cleared that up :-)
    I suspect the Meetup software does not have any special way to deal with rain dates.

    FYI - This event is a "Rain Date" which means, if it rains on Saturday, the Saturday event will be held on Sunday. This is not a "TWO" day event. Saturday's weather looks very promising so, I doubt "Sunday" Rain Date will be needed. No rain is forecasted.
