Hey fellas. Val brought up a good point about us when riding in a group establishing rules so that we can avoid mistakes. I know that we know some of our riding styles but not entirely. If we had something established we can avoid any possibl dangers. Any bio-feedback?

I agree. I have been a solo rider almost all my riding time, with the exception of the occasional ride with my brother. But that is nothing like riding with a group. Being a newbie, I would like to know the proper procedures to help me avoid making mistakes.

I too agree that when we ride in groups we need to establish some sort of riding order or rules/guidelines to follow. I know Val and I have been to the MSF course, who else has gone?

I took the course this past July before I got my license. Maintaining a staggered formation was a big point that I remember...

I took the class too, but I wasn't gonna say "I learned we were supposed to do it this way!". I figured we'd establish the rukles as a group.

I agree we should come up with something on our own. I think for the most part we're all good, accept in turns. We need to stay single file.

Next Saturday looks to have descent temp weather. Hopefully the rain will stay away and we can ride.

seems like we're all gonna be riding this wknd cuz of the nice weather hopefully.

thought i give some rules that have been established in other moto groups ive ridden in. we can pick/choose the ones we like or dont like.
- ride in staggered formation
- formation should be kept as much as possible to prevent being split up by cars
- turns should be executed in a single file
- passing someone in the same lane should be avoided unless the rider signals the rear rider to pass
- if u feel the rider behind u is tailing to close, either signal them to back off or to pass u

i know some of these rules seem kinda anal, but its to maximize our safety as a group. the more we ride together as a group, the more we'll be comfortable/familiar w/ each other's riding style so the it will already be 2nd nature to us.

just my 2c
