What we're about
Cowtown motorcycle group aka C.M.G. are a copyright social riding organization.
Open to riders of any type, brand, and style of motorcycle of 500cc and above. 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. As a courtesy to the ride host, if you RSVP for an event and for any reason you are unable to attend, please take a moment and change your RSVP so we don’t wonder where you are, or start the ride late waiting for you to arrive.
We will plan rides, have social events, and trade ideas on the message board. 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 have a full tank of gas to start the ride. Don’t be shy about introducing yourself and please 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!
