That time again? Total Noob ride?

Review this thread:

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ight=noob+ride

And let me know if there is any interest on round two?

Seems like a lot of new riders popping up (not You, Newrider ), and a bunch of noob-ish side of the road dirst samples going on...

This is a dedicated noob ride to help those virgin to corners learn the basics and increase their comfort level.

There is no fast group.
This is not a track day.
This is a group of friends helping friends and enjoying the day on the bikes.
We'll have one experienced rider for each noob for one on one help and pointers.

It will be up to those who want some help and those who want to sign up and take the time to offer the help.

Y'all's call!

Someone else is more than welcome to take the reins.

This is pointed at the total noob who just hasn't figured out how to turn well yet.

I sent you a PM, so you know I'm in!

I need to get some more seat time on my new-to-me Z1000, and this would be the perfect opportunity for it.

How about like last time... one known, recognized and selected rider for every new rider or so...

and an 'anonymous' sign up if someone wants to PM you first incase they dont want their name on the list.

Being honest about riding and your abilities are the only way to learn. I learn on every ride and Im far from being a decent rider. Just some consideration.

And I'd love to volunteer where I may be used.
