How to ride with a group

Riding with a group of biker friends or riding with an organized riding group is extremely fun for single motorcycle riders. Because they can not only become more visible on the road for motorists to see, but also make more like-minded friends one time. If lucky, it will be a great chance for them to meet a biker girl who shares the same interest with. However, not all group riding can be successful due to variable reasons, especially the lack of experience within bikers. So here are ways and guidance for the success of riding with a group.

It is important for single Harley riders to be aware of that riding in a group of two or twenty is about working together as a team. And communication is the key to accomplish the riding successfully. It will be better for all bikers to agree the use of hand signals, which will work ideally. And you should remember that no one is supposed to be responsible for your safety and security.

Meeting before riding out – Before a group ride, all motorcycle riders need to get together to set the ground rules and riding route for the ride. The meeting should be held by someone with rich group riding experience or the leader of this ride, which is to ensure the riding will be successful.

Lead rider – The ride leader is the one who rides in front of the group and can lead the ride. He or she needs to be a rider with the most experienced and trusted judge of road safety. Leader knows how to ride safely within a speed limit that all riders behind can ride comfortably. And if possible, this rider should communicate with other members of the group in advance to get a basic understanding of them.

Last rider – The last rider is often called “sweeper” or “chase rider”who are responsible to keep an eye on the front riders. He also should be a biker with a fair amount of experience. Riding in the last of the group means he or she needs to deal with different situations that may happen to the group. And one of the basic requirements for the sweeper is being knowledgeable about the ride route.

Keep staggered formation except in corners – Only this way can each rider has the space to maneuver left or right within their lane and can provide the maximum visibility for each rider ahead or behind. When cornering, riders need to select their own line through the corner.

Overtaking – Don’t ever try to follow the rider ahead of you blindly. The whole riding group will wait for you if you lose the group for a while. And overtaking requires patience and it should be done only when you are pretty sure that it is possible.

So, if you are dating a biker man, it is possible that you will get sumptuous feasts everyday.

2. They will put you to sleep with interesting motorcycling stories.

Riding in a group can be a great way to enjoy the camaraderie of traveling with like-minded motorcyclists. Besides, single biker can take the chance to meet more motorcycle riders or have a traveling date with a biker girl. It is safer and more exciting to ride in a group. While in other side, it can be much dangerous than riding alone. So, here are suggestions for bikers to mitigate the risks of riding in larger groups.

1. Carefully plan the ride and ride the plan. Riding in a group involves lots of motorcycle riders. So, it needs to be well organized, including a map of the route with designated fuel and lunch stops, and phone numbers for contacting the group leader and emergency services. Before the ride, there should be a pre-ride meeting to discuss the route conditions, riding formation, hand signals, rider skill levels, speed and other things. And inform every rider that they are expected to follow the ride plan absolutely.

2. Make sure to have an experienced ride leader. The biker who is designated as the leader is responsible for leading the group and keeping every rider as safe as possible on the open road. This requires he or she to set a proper steady pace, know very well about the riding route and stops, keep the formation and so on.

3. Ready to ride. Bikers have to meet at the beginning point with a full tank of gas, an empty bladder, a motorcycle in good condition, full set of riding gear, a first aid kit, cell phone and a positive attitude.

4. Ride your own ride. Although riding in a group needs bikers to observe the ride plan, it is also important for motorcycle riders to stay within their skill level and comfort zone. If you have to drop out of the group to keep your own pace, just tell others that you need to drop back and will rejoin the group. For less experienced riders, they should ride in the front of the group, avoiding to play catch-up with the group.

5. Use established hand signals to communicate while riding. The hand signals that are already used are easy to be remembered by motorcycle riders.

6. Be courteous when passing other motorcycle riders. If passing other vehicles aggressively, road rage will be triggered. Show signal when changing lanes to pass another vehicle and be sure to maintain your pace after passing.

7. Check the bike behind you regularly. Every biker should regularly check his or her rear view mirrors to see if they can see the next bike in the group. If there is no sign of the bikes behind you, slow down for the bikes to catch up or ride back to find out what happened.

3. Share your location with a GPS tracker. If you are not interested in writing and photography, maybe you can try a GPS tracker. The tracker can transmit your location to a password-protected website. And you can send the URL and the password to your friends and followers. Then they can track you on a map, see where you are at that exact moment on the site. It does sound cool.

4. Nothing is more real than video. Nowadays, action cameras can allow bikers to capture a slice of the ride. Bikers can use the action cameras to create many videos on the road. And when they get home, they can post it on YouTube and invite friends and families to see the exciting trip on the site.
Sharing is the most beautiful thing in the world, especially when you are doing a motorcycle trip with your biker girl.
