What we're about

This is a place for motorcycle riders of all skills to gather and share rides and our lives. No rules, just a place to meet some new riders and make new friends. If you see a ride you like, show up. You don't have to be a member to ride with us, but once you ride you soon will be. This group is open to everyone, we all tossed our leg over the seat one day not really knowing how to do this, so we have rides that span the range from simple breakfast runs to all day and overnight excursions.

We sometimes have very large rides because of the number of members. We don't limit the number of riders on a ride -- we have been doing this longer than most groups and know how to create events that everyone can attend. We don't force people to ride in separate groups, but they are welcome to if they want to. And if you are nervous, talk to one of the organizers and I'm sure they can find ways to help you feel at ease. Whether you are in a group of 10 or 100, all a rider needs to pay attention to are the few bikes in front and behind them. That's really not that hard, you probably already do it!

We also don't have any restrictions on how often you have to ride. Whether you ride once a year or once a month, we just want to help you get out an ride. We won't judge you if you have more to do in life than ride. And if there isn't any ride you like, ask for one!

Bikers participating in this group should take a moment and read the About Us ( http://www.meetup.com/PhxMRG/about ) page. We won't make you, remember that 'no rules' thing?? But if you don't, you might have some surprises later.

Curious?? Look at our photos ( http://www.meetup.com/PhxMRG/photos ) and calendar ( http://www.meetup.com/PhxMRG/calendar ...). Our group is like a family and proudly shares with everyone.
