Thumbs up Sunday 2/2 -- 6 man ride Fayetteville/Orsaks

How about a small group ride to Orsaks via the Fayetteville Route on Sunday 2/2?

Weather is forecasted to be in the high 60's. Should be perfect. We'll be back in plenty of time for the Super Bowl.

Meet up location: Bucees @ 290 and Mueschke Road
Meet up time: 8:00 w/KSU at 8:30 am
Ride distance: 160 to 180 miles
Pace: Moderate. Fast enough to get a ticket, but not so fast that you'd get arrested.

I'd like to keep this to a small group of no more than 6 people. Much easier to keep everyone safe and still have fun with a smaller group of riders.

Wear all your gear. Helmets, jackets, gloves, and boots required. Knee protection is highly recommended.

Ensure your bike is current and ready. Current plates, inspection, and insurance. Check your tire pressures before you come out.

MaxGs Group Ride Rules and Expectations

1. Each rider must have a helmet, jacket, gloves and boots. Knee protection is highly recommended and available at Motorcycles Unlimited for about $25. Riders without the appropriate gear will be asked to ride on their own.

2. Everybody must ride within their own limits. If you get scared, nervous, or anxious while riding, you are going too fast and you are a hazard to yourself as well as those around you. Slow down before you go down or hurt a fellow rider.

3. Group rides are not a motorcycle rider training tool. Each rider is personally responsible for their own actions.

4. Throughout the ride, there is no passing on the right nor is passing permitted in turns.

5. Riders will ride in staggered formation on highways & main streets and single file in the back country and around curves & bends.

6. In the backcountry as well as in curves and bends, riders will open gaps to at least 2 seconds to the motorcycle in front of them.

7. Running wide or out of your lane is a safety hazard for you and the riders around you. This is a clear indication that you are riding beyond your capabilities. Slow down before you go down or hurt a fellow rider.

8. Dragging pegs, exhaust, or any other portion of the bike is a safety issue for you and those around you. Don’t do it.

9. Every ride will have at least one designated leader and designated sweeper. Sweepers have the responsibility to ensure all riders stay together and remain accounted for throughout the ride.

10. Leaders will commonly display hand signals throughout the ride. They may include standard hand signals for left and right hand turns, per DOT regulations; a raised fist for "stop"; a hand extended down or patting down for "slow down"; tapping the top of your helmet for a police car sighting; and pointing with hand or foot at dangerous rode debris.

11. It is customary to repeat hand signals you see in order to pass information to the riders behind you.

12. Stunting and wheelies are prohibited on the group rides.

13. All rides will have a "no man left behind" policy, meaning the group will never leave a rider behind or stranded. The designated sweeper will confirm that all riders are accounted for with the leader at each stop.

14. Riders who are new to their bike, have less than 6 months sport bike riding experience, or are new to the route will be asked to ride together as the UAC (Up and Coming) group. The UAC group will be assigned an experienced leader and sweeper. [Not applicable to the 6 man ride.]

15. Riders will top off their gas tanks before kick-stands-up. The group will not stop for gas stations except for the designated rest stop areas.

16. Riders will check tire pressures and tire condition before they get to the meeting place. If you need tire pressure advice, ask beforehand.

17. It is not unusual for a large group ride to have at least one bike related incident. Ensure that incident does not involve you.

18. And, again, a reminder: everybody must ride within their own limits. If you get scared, nervous, or anxious while riding, you are going too fast and you are a hazard to yourself as well as those around you. Slow down before you go down or hurt a fellow rider.

We need to keep an eye on the weather. At this point, it isn't looking promising. I'm seeing rain in the morning forecasted.

With all your gear, I would have bet you'd ride rain or shine. I don't mind riding in the rain, except for the mess it makes out of the bikes.
