Small bike meet? (noob friendly)

After riding with Bevo and the crew today, I thought this might be something that some folks are interested in.

If there's enough interest, I think it would be cool to organize a small-bike (250, maybe 500, etc.) meet and greet, as well as a ride. Any size bike can show up, but I think a 250 should lead, to keep the pace. I can lead if no one else can or no one else wants to, as it won't be a 100+ mph ride.

Those interested sound off in this thread. We don't need but 3 or 4 get things started, and I don't mind the group being larger. If enough people show interest, we'll set things up for a weekend later on. I think this will be pretty cool. DEFINITELY noob friendly. Calm pace so that everyone can get a taste of group riding, without having to fight to keep up with the 600 and bigger bikes.


So, SOUND OFF!

1. Smart Shark!

Good, that way we'll have somebody to turn to if no one else knows what the they're doing!

I'd actually like to lead, unless that would be unwise, considering my lack of experience.

I may be interested depending on time and date.

What the 250 lacks is made up in turns. Unless you're following seasoned riders than that's a different story.

Time and date can be whatever works for all you guys. I work Tuesday-Friday, and so have regular three-day weekends. Here's a route a drew up pretty quickly... Keep in mind I have no idea where any decent motorcycle roads are, or anything. Just going off what I think would be fun to ride.

WARNING: It's a screenshot... You can't click it.

EDIT: One sec, working on the map...

Ask GayRider (Ivan, aka NewRider) he's pretty knowledgeable about routes.

I'm down whenever bro, we can ride tomorrow if you want. I think I'm gonna roll back up to Motorcycles Unlimited to get an estimate on repairs, amongst other things. You can show me around the northside.
