That way if "Jim" is not at the gas station, "George" knows something is wrong, and can alert the rest of the group.

If for whatever reason "George" needs to leave early, he can tell "Jim" so he is aware. Then "Jim" should talk with another pair to join that group.

At the end of the ride, when Jim arrives home, he sends a text to George to say he arrived safely. George does the same.
The buddy system works well, it is pretty much how group 1 works, everyone in the front group have each other's number, on top of that, we are all friends off the bike, we go eat, hang out , etc so if anyone is missing we will find out for sure at the next stop.

The purpose of my Midweek Meet is to bring ppl together and create the same kind of relationship among riders in the second and third group but due to work sometimes i can and sometimes i cant because i am out of town. I am hoping we can find a good solution during this meeting and prevent future incidents from happening again.

Basic features:

* A person can create a group and allow others to join
* Each member that joins a group will require authorization of the group creator or moderator
* Each member within a group can have multiple custom tags (such as Leader, Group1, Group2, Noobs, etc.)
* Each tag can be then used to filter the member list for the stats display
* Check points can be added to the group, where a checkpoint can be a location or a person on the list
* Each check point can display how many members are within a certain radius
* Offline members will automatically be tagged as offline
* The interface will be text / list base for simplicity
* Locations will be logged on the server for up to a week until automatic deletion
* GPS doesn't have to be on at all times, as long as you turn it back on when you are near a checkpoint

Any thoughts? or support? Maybe a waste of effort?
I love the idea, if someone could design an app it will definitely help not only our group but it can be used by the whole motorcycle community, problem is although the idea is excellent, it will take a lot of time to write and code the software and we would also need someone that knows IOS programming language that would be willing to do it.

+1

We do have a private ride that is smaller, it is by invitations only, and no rules at all because most of the riders on the list are very experienced and know what they are doing out there.

Our Sunday ride is organized in a way that we still have a fast group in the front that usualy leaves 5 mins ahead of the slower group 2 and 3. The purpose of taking our time and effort to structure these 2 groups is to make it as noob friendly as possible so the inexperienced riders come out and join us so they can have more seat time on their bikes and become more comfortable riding some back roads in a group environment, it is a good way for noob riders to enjoy a relaxed ride and learn from others while having fun in the process. We organize the ride not so much for ourselves but we feel that we can help many inexperienced riders overcome their fear by incorporating the fun factor tied to a group activity, eventually some of these riders might want to further their learning by going to the track eventually, so in other words, we can be selfish and just keep our rides private and have lots of fun with 0 rules and worries or we can give back something in return to the motorcycle community.

For once why dont you educate yourself before letting your ignorance take over your mouth?

First of all, i am not from China, although i do business with them i am actually from Taiwan.

Secondly, have you been to China at all? You would be surprised to see how many Christian, Catholic and other churches they have built in the past 10 years.

Third, i believe you got stuck in the Mao era, where a single child was the law to control over population, i suggest you pick up a book and relearn everything you ever knew about China before you put your foot in your mouth again and again and again.

Last, i outgrew the riding scooters stage and have been riding real bikes now for a long while, i also suggest you to grow up and ride a real bike and stop trying to convince the world that your scooter is a real bike.

Cristo ten piedad en los pobres ignorantes que no saben distingir entre una moto y una scooter

I haven't contributed to this thread up until this point because it would have been negative.

Carry on Mr Group ride extraordinaire.

Yeah okay. And there isnt forced abortions either. And no one child policy. Haha.

Again your eyes are closed...figuratively of course.

So, we didnt have to go here but obviously my suggestion in itself was persecuted.

And i wont let the uninformed try to inform me. You should know this.by now.
