What we're about
We welcome all riders regardless of brand or style to come ride with us. Doesn't matter your age or level of experience. We do want you to be able to ride safely and be able to keep up with the group. So if you are a brand new rider, we promote Motorcycle Safety Training Classes. Safety classes are not necessarily taught by our members but we can help you find one in our area.
We also want to make sure your machine is safe as well. We recommend regular service and that you use appropriate tires with good tread. Also if you ride a 250CC or smaller bike, you may not be able to keep up with the group. We generally don't ride much above the posted speed limit. However, even at highway speeds some riders will find it difficult to stay with the group.
We want our rides to be fun and safe for all involved and we don't intentionally leave anyone behind. However, asking the group to wait on you may make for some awkward situations for you and the others on the ride. We will have weekly gatherings during the season and plan weekend and sometime weekday rides. We try to do one medium to long ride a month. We promote safe, fun, and family friendly rides. We support many different motorcycle related events. Come join us and share your love of the open road and make new friends.
Please keep in mind that we have rules we expect all riders to follow, failure to follow these rules may lead to your removal from our group:
1. Always ride safe and never put those on your bike or riding with you in danger intentionally.
2. Keep it family friendly. Don't come to our events and do anything that would offend a child or my mother. That goes for language and attitude. We are not a gang, we don't wear colors, and we do our best to make everyone feel welcome. If you cannot get along with others, use excessive bad language, or do other things that are not considered family friendly, you will be banned from the group.
3. Just say no! No drugs or alcohol at any of our events. The only exception is if we are having a non riding event and you wish to have a beer, or at the end of the ride if we all meet for supper and you want a beer with your meal. But no excessive drinking. If you come drunk or get drunk at one of our events you will be banned. Illegal drugs will get you banned no matter what they are or why you are using them.
One other thing to consider is your distance from our group. If you live more than 50 miles from the Mills River area, you may find it hard to participate in our group. If this is the case for you I would recommend that you find a group closer to where you live to ride with.
