This is a hub to Network and set up rides with other experienced motorcyclists with similar interest in sport touring. We are all about Great Scenic Roads and Good Times; safe riding is our first priority and we welcome experienced motorcycle riders both solo and with their passengers with any type of sport touring or touring motorcycle. Our intent is to meet and ride with other experienced motorcycle riders interested in enjoying scenic sport touring with other experienced motorcyclists in the area. We hope that each member will share the great routes they have found and that we will find and explore new routes together. Most rides are day rides of various lengths, but we will plan some overnight+ tours as well. Not a formal club with meetings, we meet to ride.
RIDER TYPE: Experienced riders interested in sport touring backroads both technical/twisty and scenic/cruising.
RIDE RANGES: From 50 miles round trip and up, average can be around 100+ miles round trip to get to the best roads.
RIDE DAYS: Any day is a possibility after work hours for unstructured rides, just text and see who’s available to ride. Structured rides are generally Fridays to take advantage of the limited daytime traffic, and Weekends. Rides start in the morning before the traffic starts and generally end in the late afternoon, with rest stops and breaks as appropriate.
BASIC REQUIREMENTS: You must have a valid motorcycle license, insurance and inspection sticker when riding in this group. I suggest “All-Gear-All-The-Time”, so please dress appropriately. You will also need an ezpass for many rides. We use Sena Bluetooth Systems for communication; if you don't have bluetooth, it's cool - we will decide on hand signals and meeting points before we start riding. We also use the GroupMe chat app to set up rides; it can be downloaded to your smartphone or used on a computer at groupme.com.
