Since I'm new around here and still trying to get the feel of this group, help me understand why the need for Non-Noob or Noob-Friendly rides?

What problems do you encounter with NF rides that create a need for segregated rides?

Please don't misinterpret my question, I'm all for however it works, just trying to better understand the "whys and whats" of this community.

But I can almost guarantee a lot of these "non noob" ride riders are not going that much faster then some noobs on the corners, they prob kill it in the straights.

There are a few that are exempt from that, but not many

We don't want noobs to try and keep up with experienced riders, unwillingly getting in an accident..
we don't want fast riders been held back from having their fun while having to wait on the noobs..
separated groups means every one is safe, has fun and rides with riders of their same skill level

A noob such as myself would make a fast rider wait on me, keeping him from having his fun..

Understood and makes sense for the nature of these types of bikes.

There are some rides I do (spirited/ non- noob friendly) through some rural country back roads where there is very little margin for error...no shoulder, center stripe...pretty much like a 1 lane used for 2 way traffic...the pace may not be fast, but, good bike control plays a BIG part in staying on the pavement..Some develop good riding habits/ bike control within a few months and some never..

thanks everyone for your posts. i've been on plenty of group rides, around here, fort hood, and fort benning in georgia. u are correct sir, some are not as experienced as others, some may never get there, and some as you say, just kill it in the straight aways, and call themselves fast, i'm not here to judge, just to have some fun and meet some new riders that share my enthusiasm for motorcycle riding. for this reason, i'm titling my thread non-noob ride, it's for everyone to know themselves and decide if they are up to par for riding this or not. it's like they say, sometimes the older more experienced kids wanna have a lil fun with their peers, lol. again, no bad intentions for any one....

so with that said, i read, on the sunday morning thread about one rider going down, sorry to hear, and i also read that he is ok, very glad to hear!! BUT, if any one wants to still go riding today, just hit me up. i have been looking at a route that i planned out on mapquest, looks to be good, i'm sure somebody else has already rode it before, but if anyone is down, just hit me up on this thread, or pm me, and i'll shoot ya my #. thanks

Thats all true, add to the fact that as the non noob waits for you they are getting fairly hot in their gear. No need to make them uncomfortable.
