Looking for new riders

Im looking for new riders to ride with. The guys ive been riding with are into doing dumb . I personally have only a little over 800 miles worth of experience. Preferably if i could get people with the same or similar amount of experience so we can learn together. Let me know, i ride on Sundays.

You should probably find some veterans to ride with. Not a bunch of newbs.

id say ride alone for some more time and you get comfortable with the bike by yourself. a bunch of newbs riding together is a bad idea IMO. a newb trying to keep pace with experienced riders is also a bad idea.

im 22 years old and i ride a zzr600. Yes ive taken the MSF and yeah i have a license im leget. I agree that its no a good idea that a newb try to keep pace with experienced riders. I dont really think a bunch of new riders is as bad. If you riding with a bunch of guys that are still half way scared of there bikes then its less likely that they will ride a mile weelie trough 2 red lights, or try to go from Spring to Galveston in 20 minutes(in midday traffic non the less).

Riding with a mentor isn't a bad idea at all, SMALL group of 'newbs' might be ok, jsut gotta remember to increase your distance a bit.


Might help to tell us what general area your from/in though

You "slow pokes" are welcome to tag along with the wife and I; she is still learning herself so we keep it to a sane pace. (or I pull over and wait after the curves....)
We're on the NW side as well.

I have near 2000 miles experience now and don't really ride at insane speeds except for maybe straight aways. I am in The Woodlands so anytime you want to ride let me know. I usually ride the back roads up towards Conroe through the forest.
