We invite members and non-members to ride with us, as long as they wear proper protective gear , a full-face helmet, riding jacket, pants, boots and gloves. Their bike is in good working order, they display a mature, non-competitive attitude and they abide by the rules listed below. Any rider who violates these rules may be asked to leave the group ride.
1. By showing up for a ride you assume all responsibility for yourself and your bike. You understand that motorcycling is an inherently dangerous sport and agree to hold the club, its officers, other members and guests harmless if anything should happen to you while riding with the group, before the ride, or after the ride.
2. Abide by all traffics laws. If you violate any traffic laws, you are responsible for any consequences.
3. Ride you own ride. You must be aware of the limits of your skills, abilities and experience, and ride accordingly. Do not exceed your comfort level by trying to keep up with a faster rider. If you crash, you will ruin everyone's day, especially yours.
4. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RIDER BEHIND YOU. When you get to an intersection that requires a turn, check your mirrors. DO NOT MAKE THE TURN until you are certain that the rider behind you sees you.
5. Pass at your own risk. Pass other vehicles only when it is safe to do so. DO NOT use any hand signals intended to tell the rider behind you what to do; IGNORE any signal you may see from another rider. DO NOT make an unsafe pass because of concern about being left behind -- the rider in front of you will wait for you at the next turn.
6. Do not tailgate. Maintain a safe braking distance.
7. Leave your ego at home. If you're not comfortable maintaining the pace of the rider in front of you, wave the rider(s) behind you by.
8. Do not pass others Except when waved by.
9. Ride in staggered formation on divided highways. Ride single file on secondary roads.
10. Communicate with least one other rider and the sweep rider if you need to leave the ride so we don't go in search of you thinking that you crashed or had a mechanical problem.
