I believe his point is to have rides that are specifically designed for beginning and intermediate riders and not for budding track riders or racers. There's nothing wrong with that approach. More power to him.

Could be a good thing. Hopefully you'll have a good turn out. Gear up for the crash, not the ride.

It means me and my Ninja 250R will give it a shot and see how it goes. Seriously, it sounds like fun and I will certainly let all know how this beginner on his 250R does on the first group ride I'm able to make.

As for rider meetings. I've been on group rides with and without them and I prefer them.

At some point you'd graduate from intermediate twisty rider...so say..junior rider? or expert? or master? or something.

I know where they can come when they graduate. But I wouldnt dare post the link.
