Can't tell you how many times I've seen and heard this: rider new to group wants to keep up, and goes way over his/her abilities. He's lucky he walked away from that.

Oh, and did you get the joke in my post above, mainerdr? Thought you'd get a kick out of Coq Roq.

Hey guys.

I'm up for a ride tonight if anyone else is. I could be ready to go from Portland any time after 6 and possibly earlier. Mainerdr, I'll definitely give you a call tonight to see what you're up to. You interested, wheelie?

While I'm new at this, I do not plan on being the guy that bites it. I've got plenty of time ahead of me to do that so I'm not in a hurry to start now.

Then don't ride with mainerdr. . .he's crazy, and you'll bite it for sure. LOL. . .mainerdr is a good rider and y'all will have fun. Wish I could join y'all tonight, but I've got plans with the girl. Thursday night's out, too, b/c I've got tennis in Auburn. We should try and plan something for over the weekend before everyone has plans and can't do a/th.

Anyone. . .Bueller? . . . .Bueller?. . . . this weekend?

Rider experience and wisdom come over time... I am a jack ass at times but not too crazy....

The most important lesson to lear is that you need to ride within your limits. Even then things can still go wrong.


This weekend works for me! Tonight is not great I gotta get that beater from Lewiston and get it back to westbrook. I want to hang with chris for a bit and maybe tear the bike apart and see what we need to replace.

Sorry raptor... lets plan for the weekend with wheelie what do you think?

You've got my number. Call me and I'm ready to go, simple as that.

Is Saturday or Sunday better for you guys?

I completely understand that. Getting experience, knowledge, and more miles as safely as possible is my primary concern right now. I figure I can learn a lot from riding with you guys (especially what not to do ). Like I said, I have plenty of time to be stupid and bite it... I'll stay within my limits for now, thanks.

That said, the group ride won't be quite as enjoyable when you've completely smoked me and left me wondering where the hell you've gone to so quickly.

if people are wanting to ride fast someone will stay back with you and if you do lose site if anyone we always stop at all crossroads to wait... and make sure everyone it okay.

I am fine with Sat or Sun. Doesn't matter..... I like sat better but what ever....

why don't we just go out with a few people first. It can be intimidating if your new and your riding in a large pack of people in close quarters.
