I am in - BUT I would like to ask and/or clarify a few things.

A lot of responses here think that this isn't a good idea - I agree partially. It's all in the way it's done.

Rick - what I gather from your posts is that you intend for this to be a "new to group riding techniques" ride and not really a "I'm new to riding" thing. If that's the case, it IS a good idea if planned well.

I've been on newbie rides before - both as a newbie myself and as a helper. We always planned them for people who already knew how to ride but wanted to see what it was like in larger groups - hand signals, lane position, intersections, etc. Only by getting out and doing it will people learn how to do it safely.

That said - as long as everyone that attends has AT LEAST 1k miles (preferably more) under their belt, has FULL working knowledge of their own bike, and comes geared up appropriately, I am in.

Also - if the control riders have communications, it works MUCH better. Chatterbox anyone?

Contrary to popular belief, sweeper is NOT the position for the slowest rider. It's actually a VERY BAD place for the slow riders to be.

True, sweepers sweep the slow riders in the back to keep them in the group.

I'm up for that if I can make the date. Here's my road experience:
2001-2002: 10,000 miles (sold bike in Jan '03)
2003-2006: 0 miles (no motosicle)
2007: 600 miles (back in the saddle again)

Don't be fooled though...I can smoke all you guys...





...on MotoGP 2 :icon_bigg

Yep and I volunteer for this spot. I usually hang out in the back and make sure everyone makes it ok.

I can vouch for that! After I wrecked this woman is one of the main reasons I was able to get back up and ride again without being too scared. She's probably one of the most patient and helpful riders out there that I've met. Defiantly someone you want helping you out on the group rides when you're a newbie.
