We are a group of Freethinkers, Humanists, Atheists, Agnostics, Scientists, Skeptics, Non-theists, Naturalists, Rationalists, Secularists and supporters of sound science and critical thinking who ride all types of motor scooters, motorbikes and motorcycles on the track, street and dirt.

The purpose of this Meetup group is to get together for rides, conversation, and other motorcycle-related events.  There are no fees or dues required for membership however, we must pay meetup.com substantial annual fees to keep this Meetup website.  We support this through our t-shirt sales and request that you become a Member In Good Standing.    Our group t-shirts are available for ladies and gentlemen for $19.99 + shipping.  Contact Paul Andor Nagy to order:  http://www.meetup.com/FreeThought-Motorcycl...

Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds that opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or any other dogma.  Freethought holds that individuals should neither accept nor reject ideas proposed as truth without recourse to knowledge and reason. Thus, freethinkers strive to build their opinions on the basis of facts.  Applied to religion, freethinkers have generally held that, given presently-known facts, established scientific theories, and logical principles, there is insufficient evidence to support the existence of supernatural phenomena.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freethought

We lend a helping hand to other motorcyclists and to other world citizens because it is the right thing to do, not because we expect any reward in this life or after this life.

We support Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Thought, Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Religion, Freedom From Religion, Separation of Church and State, Separation of Church and Business, Separation of Church and Education.

We endorse the pursuit of education, ethical alternatives, mathematics, science, logic, reason, evolution, free inquiry, technology and philosophy because they are points on the highway to freedom.

We live this life the best that we can and for the most we can because, this is the only life we will live.

We care for our Earth because it is the only Earth we will ever live on.

We give thanks to science and to our ancestors for developing metallurgy and the wheel (invented in the Neolithic Period or Stone Age). We give thanks to the prehistoric zooplankton and algae which gave their lives so that we may utilize their fossil fuel in the most enjoyable way. We give thanks to the engineers and scientists who make our motorcycles faster and more reliable. We give thanks to the doctors and nurses who heal our injured bodies when we test our human limitations and mortality.

..... and on the seventh day, we go riding!
