I'm not worried about anyone crashing. I only worry about someone not following the rules, paying attention, and crashing into me or another rider.

+1

I like the idea of the Up And Coming class designation as well as other two mentioned. (Maybe Class C?)

The spirited/non-spirited designations worked pretty good. When I first started riding, I knew that when Cdill, AJ, Maxgs said it was going to be a spirited ride that I should go on another ride or stay my at home as a beginner.

I think the key issue is those new riders that join our smrs, the regulars already know the ranks of the group, the problem is when a new kid shows up thinking he should be in A instead of C.

I have no problem telling new riders to get back to their position, but the problem is that most of the time the leaders do not get to see what is going on behind them, specially on a long set of twisties.....

Newb here, to save this one from going the way of the last one can I point out something?

He's right you can't see from the front what others be hind you are doing. I would suggest that a very experienced rider sweep, and since we wait at every turn until the sweeper gives a thumbs up, maybe the sweeper uses a halt signal if he observes someone riding out of their comfort zone. Then everyone pulls over and the leader and sweeper both talk to said person. Moving person to the back of the pack or if they refuse asking them to leave.

There's already a big fat book written that covers everything you need for riding on the street - the Texas Transportation Code.
True that just ride with people you know and stop trying to get big groups together..More people more crashers

I don't think it's rules as much as it is guidelines, i would like to ride with a mh group, but ive seen the way some of these guys ride, and no way in the world would i even attempt to ride with them, the only reason i HAVE NOT ridden with any of the groups, is because there is no real way to know what's gonna happen as far as how many new riders are in the group, ect ect.

Come on the noob ride to GSS that Bevo has setup in the events section.

You have my word that the ride will be completely controlled and under a pace that anyone on the board can ride under.
