I agree. I wish that there was such a thing as a noob ride in my past. It was follow, keep up if you can and hope you make back home.

All new riders, come and take advantage of the wealth of knowledge here and the cool people you will meet.
I'm not saying I wish there was a noob rides, just saying that when you respect the road, and ride within your limits, most of the time you will be alright. That's how I came up.

I don't think as many people were doing trackdays back then (2007) so I didn't know much about them. I would have rather learned from instructors at the track day than learning on the open road from unqualified riders. There is no room for error on the street so that's why I don't like the idea of teaching people advanced riding techniques when they are just barely comfortable with clutch control, braking, and freeway riding. They may start to get comfortable on the backroads, and then all of a sudden they are not prepared to negotiate a turn. Noob rides are definitely more practical than trackdays, but I will not be part of it because it's not what I believe in.

I completely agree that the track is the place to really learn how to ride, but going around some twisty roads at around posted limits with experienced people keeping an eye on you can potentially help point out some fundamental rules that they may not be following without realizing(crossed up, inconsistent line, slowing down mid corner, ect....) and could help bridge the gap between new to backroads and doing track days. While some people may become over confident, the potential to stop accidents from poor fundamentals outweighs it in my opinion.

What's with all the bashing on my thread?
You either put your name on the list and show up, or don't.
Wanna take noobs to the track? post your own thread, these guys seem to forget they were noobs too, how disrespectful to people looking to help and others trying to have fun

I think riding ALONE is the best...
You go with your own speed, you own limits etc...
Track is good for riding, learning etc...but I find the street more challenging and interesting...more adrenalin rush!!!hehe

Nah i hate the time wasted leading up to rr. The

All that time on an smr could be well spent ridin a navasota, fayetville or sommerville ride.

There are roads comparable and morr challenging to RR on each of these rides and much longer.

Check out the list. Its the troof. Lucar got guys comin from the dickinson, Crosby, and dayton showin up

If i had a SS i still wouldnt waste my time on an smr,its for the locals who thin riding 30 min to a meet spot is too far.

Riding alone is BORING.
Its fun for a bit but you just need someone to talk to when you stop and oddly enough when you cannot even talk to the other person when riding, you just do not feel alone.

..also there's a lot of things to consider.. such as I.e. if you go in a ditch and land unconscious where traffic is not a lot, how long before any one finds you?
If you get a flat or mechanical failure, who can help you get help or keep you company at whatever in wherever you are..?
And tons more.. like bevo said.. riding alone makes you an open target for LEOs

Advanced riding technique??

Someone is talking about something they don't know about. Pretty obvious you haven't been on a Noob specific ride some of us have put together in the past

I don't like the idea of people posting and explaining things they don't really know about
