Not being well versed in the way these things work, this may be a dumb suggestion but... would it be possible to have a standing list of info. for new riders that's easy to access but not necessarily posted to? Various selections of posts that cover a topic well and aren't overly redundant so that they would read them is what I would envision. Over time there has been a lot of really good information posted that could be very valuable to a newbie, but is buried and difficult to search out. It might also include posts for more experienced riders, but on a new bike, and group riding techniques and etiquete.
A lot of newbies ask a lot of the same questions, legitimately, and I think a lot of people get tired of answering the same thing so either don't answer or give less than complete answers which is a shame but understandable. Just a thought, not a criticism. You are to be commended for what you have done already! Thank you.
