Seasonal group since I don't ride under 50 degrees lol Just looking for a group of local riders who may not be able to plan that far ahead because - life happens! So if you are free ahead of time or want to plan a last minute ride because you didn't realize how warm it is outside, and you want the company then put up a meetup. Let's just get out the house and ride.
Ride Durations/Type - So many ride for work so let's do a ride for pleasure. Rides can range from 30 minutes to 2 hours+. Personally, after 90 minutes I need a break... this group is open to all motorcycle types such as canam, slingshots, sportbikes, cruisers, etc . Group good for folks that don't want to always push 150mph on the highway but okay with a highway range of 60-100mph (depending on traffic/weather) and residential less than 55mph of course. Group good for riders who just want to cruise down the GSP, local roads and take advantage of the weather since it's cold up here more than hot. Face it... we're not in Sunny California. So any day over 60 degrees I'm on my bike, even if it is just to the gym.
I love riding to Bear mountain... have you been!! Nice easy ride. Looking for others to give ideas and share where they ride to. This is for the general area of North Jersey, Central Jersey, Parts of upstate NY (like Rockland county), couple NYC rides (if we're brave enough to dodge the pot holes and traffic/rare). Don't want to suck up your whole day, just a couple of hours. I get cold easily so most rides that I plan will be in the early afternoon when the sun is the hottest. Once summer hits and it's over 65 degrees by 7am.... I'm all open to morning rides when the cars aren't out yet. When you plan/host a meetup, you can make it whenever. If you want to do a Waffle house run to Bethlem, PA (45-60 minutes) I'm always up for that run.. straight shot!
Come to a last minute meet up or host a meetup yourself. Be sure to enable email notification since this group is all about last minutes or check our twitter @njlastminriders. I'll try to post on twitter as the meetups come up... i'm not great with twitter but i'm working on it.
Group requirement - If you have a motorcycle endorsement on your VALID license then you can ride with us. Must have valid license, registration and insurance when riding in this group.
Meetup Dues - Anyone who rides can join and post meetups. Dues are $3 annual. Which is to cover the monthly meetup fees I get hit with. Plus only serious riders who actually ride won't mind the $3 which is less than a tank of gas for your bike. Don't want to be one of those groups with a bunch of members but only 3-4 people go on rides. Please don't add this group just to be a member. You need to actually participate even if it's only one ride.
Why was I removed from the group? If you sign up for a ride and are a "No show" instead of removing yourself from the RSVP then you will be removed from the group after the third "no show". This group has a total group max of 50 people. Don't want to be a huge group like other meetups just want serious people that ride. There is a two week trial for this group then $3 dues are due to remain in this group. If you find yourself too busy to participate please remove yourself from group, so others can join. Thanks.
Let's do this! #Letsride
