Nice turnout today. Nice to see some new faces. The group did pretty good for staying together. I'll work on some of the video I have and upload at a later time.


A few notes:

XSV: Need to work on your right turn body positioning. More seat time and group rides will fix this. Also, Don't get so close to the white line on the outside. This is where all the debris ends up. Hate for you to hit some gravel on get a nail in your tire.

Ely: Need to work on holding a line in corners. The speeds we were traveling weren't an issue but build good habits. It's possible that carrying a passenger was upsetting the balance of the bike. If you haven't done it, get HOP or Motorcycles Unlimited to set your suspension.


Look forward to seeing everyone next time. Hopefully it's on a Sunday.

I'd be too scared to put a scratch on it. What brand are they? Carro? Oz?

Going slow with new people is the best way to go. Don't want anyone getting in over their heads trying to keep up.

Ya I'm not so used to riding two up at a slower pace maybe. And she tends to move around on the back. I would of had Motorcycles Unlimited do it but I do ride by myself at times and
I don't want to adjust it every time I ride. Pluse Motorcycles Unlimited really upset me when I tried to get my service done there. I payed $200 just to find out they could not do it all now I have to pay a dealorship another $200 to do it all over again so there's a bad taste in my mouth about this.

I have my bike set up for just me riding but when my wife rides, I'll put a few more clicks of compression. Seems to help.

Just the rear. A passenger is gonna upset the bike no matter what you do though. Proper set suspension just minimizes the effect. Make sure she understands that wiggling around in a turn is a no no.

Thanks to everyone that came out. I haven't hosted a noob ride in awhile, and it turned out awesome. Huge thanks to Adam, Chuck and Trung. I couldn't have done it without you guys. Keep an eye on the board. I plan on doing this a few more times before winter hits.

This. My girl has ADD. Pretty flower on the left, cute cow on the right...Oh, look! There's a bird! She's gotten a lot better, but when you know you're pillion wiggles, you just gotta be ready for it.
