Calling out on all Experienced Riders that Participate on SMRs to combine our power..

Calling out on
SDRC
Halffast
BORC
PP46
and all others with or without affiliation;

what's up guys... , I'd like to make a "Ride to No Ride" meet once a month, with the purpose of inviting every noob rider to it, relating to teachings and bolt lightning on the heads of these new riders with the risks involved in twisty rides and riding with fast groups.
I'd like us to organize, maybe a weekend/day morning with experienced riders to combine our power and shed some of our energy over these dudes.
I keep seeing in rides/threads new guys going down because of many reasons. We're not at track nor participating in any kind of street racing, it's just simply trying to keep up or ego altering situations that get these riders in trouble.

serious notes and help appreciated, let's keep our rides safe and our bikes upright.
PM me or post it here,

Let's make this tangible, let's make it happen, not for me but for all of the above

Sounds like a good idea. Twist of the wrist part of the curriculum. Lol.

I'm down. Entry speed and hitting the apex and the right time seem to be my difficulties. I'm more of a visual learner so if we can get some kind of chalk board or to draw on that would be cool.

I believe what you are referring to a NOOB ride. Those have been going on for a while.

Pretty soon, one will be posted. but an actual noon ride that remains a noon ride.

The problem with people going down is the open invitation for anyone to ride, without a really set out play by play rule on how the conduct of the ride will go.

I haven't heard the riders meeting on the rides because I havent been there, but it's important to beat it into people what is expected on the ride.

My .02

I think he wants to meet for this. But as most of us know, we've been calling these Meet & Greets, or M&Gs, for years

Track is the right place to improve riding skills SAFELY. With the help of licensed instructors, EMS and no on coming traffic.

The reason why noobs crash is because they want to try and keep up or close the gap. Or even imitate the experienced riders BP without the understanding of the physics or throttle control.

Senator method of Noob rides seems to be the best method to help improve on streets.

Well, simply put.. I do not consider myself qualified to teach when I still have a lot to learn.

No, I think it's because of your limited communication skills and people skills. I think you are better to be with in person because you don't instigate drama face to face.

ok.. y'all keep going with that track and this is not the thread for that.. I'm sorry, people either don't wanna go, can't pay it, don't have leathers, can't tow the bike, have to be home early, or whatever reason so they pick SMRs.. get the point once and for all please.
What this thread is about, is caring for our noobs and showing that we do this way.
take it or leave it, participate or don't.

Yes I'm Lucar and I aprove this message.

From what I've seen in the past, someone forms a noob ride, then all the OP's typical SPORK, BAMF, SNR, NotFast buddies join in and by the time the ride begins, everyone's blowing triple digits except for the designated sweeper and maybe a couple other guys.

Then someone posts a ”Did so-and-so make it home safe? We lost you out there.”
I haven't been on any noob rides lately, but that's pretty much what I've heard.
I believe the only person that had actually done a proper noob ride was Texlurch.
He limited the ride to actual noobs and only noobs.

If you're looking to instruct new riders, I think Chris hit the nail on the head.
No sense in trying to instruct a group of noobs on the street.
Just my opinion, but take it with a grain, I'm bikeless and not even noob status sooo...

Dude, don't get so -hurt, no one is starting the street vs track thing until your little rant.

What people are saying is that this is not a new idea and the only thong missing is implementing what has been set forth before.

I saw the other thread that this probably came from, it's not the same situation. You guys had a fairly new rider (by own admission) on a non-new rider ride...

It happens.

No sense in getting feelings hurt. You asked for opinions on an open forum. If the majority of the replies don't agree with you, then that's just the general consensus of the audience you're reaching out to.
