I don't have an issue having a car sweeping for us. It would be nice just in case somebody has a motorcycle break down on them or a flat. However, I really do mean sweeping... i.e. the last in the line. And, never closer than 100 yards to a bike in front of you unless we are all stopped.

OK. Back on track.

This ride will be on Saturday, January 3rd. The route will be starting at the Shell Station at 45 and 242, better known as PP69. From there we'll take the usual route to the Forest, then 3090, and then lunch at Yankees. We'll keep things organized for the ride home as well.

Plan to arrive at 9 am or so with kick stands up at 9:30 am. Please wear all your gear and ensure your friends are geared up too. Helmets, jackets, gloves, and boots will be required. Knee protection is highly recommended as well and is worth the $25 bucks at Motorcycles Unlimited. Folks, please don't show up without gear, Hooligan "The Gangsta" gets tired of having to enforce the rules.

To clarify, this will not be some crazy bonzai run through the forest. We're going to have a large group that will be split up. At a minimum it will be split into three groups. The first for riders with little to no experience in the forest/3090 or those new to their bikes; the second for those that have been on 3090 a few times; and the third for experienced riders who might want to kick things up a notch. We'll figure out who will be leading which group as the ride evolves further. I will be leading either the first or second group.

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. Donít 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.

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.

Ok, so here is an update on the ride. It's a lot more comfortable when we keep the groups down to a manageable size, say about ten riders per group. So the plan will be to split the noobs into at least two groups, each with a leader and sweeper, the intermediates into at least two groups also with leaders and sweepers. We might stagger them them a bit as well, say 10 minutes between groups.

The spirited group can run with a single leader and sweeper, unless they decide otherwise. Plus they'll sprint off from the start...

As such, would y'all please indicate which group you'll be riding in?
