I finally did my first group ride....
« on: January 23, 2012, 02:35:58 pm »
and it turned out very good. Most of them I know from http://www.meetup.com/motorcycle-109/Over 25 bike in all, mostly HD's bout there were Vulcan's, Honda's in the mix too. All the rider are very laidback and not the (hey eveyone look at me  type....) What I like the most about the ride was the briefing before hand. Everyone really listened and asked questions about the route. Safety, staggered formation and so on was discussed in depth as was responsibly. We talked about hand signals and possible road hazards too. There were no hotdoggers or EGO heavy riders.  The leader that came up with the route is a riding coach and the tail back is a retired cop....and we all have a passion for riding.  I was the only Connie in the bunch and I finally got to use my helmet cam.  One on the riders owns a business that does media editing so the following weekend we did some editing. I picked out the music and he did the editing.  I might get a editing program and try it out myself.  You all can check it out , it's about 6:00 min long. I'm thinking of getting another camera and attaching it to my forks, fairing or maybe one of the bags. Here is the link for my first video...... http://forgedmedia.com/client/ChilliRide.wmv Enjoy

+1 on enjoying the video. Would love to have you come up to one of group rides I know of,  March 24th, Easter weekend, and the first Saturday of May is already scheduled (although the first Sat of May I know of a ride down you way too).

Thanks W14 for the comment.
Louie I might try and make one of those rides on your neck of the wood. I'm going to do the Moonshiners 28 Run http://www.moonshiner28.com/moonshiner28_maps.html, South Carolina,Georga and North Carolina and then into Tennesee. And then to the Cherohala Skyway.  I'll keep you up to date on the dates.

Cheers
