Spring is coming. Those single bikers who haven’t ridden for the whole winter are eager to ride out to enjoy the warm sunshine and the ultimate freedom on their motorcycles. However, there are some special hazards during springtime riding that require all riders to be well prepared. Next, let’s take a look at those three main hazards on the road.

The messy road
Single motorcycle riders usually love to ride to the countryside to get close to the nature. But the road surface of the countryside is usually covered with mud and gravel that are washed and dragged onto the road by the melting snow. It will take a lot of time and workers to clean up all these. At intersections or steep slopes, there are sand, gravel and cinders. In farming country, the roads are unpaved and the driveways are likely to be tracked by the mud and gravel. Besides, when you are riding behind a car, you should pay attention to see the road that the car drive through. There might be sharp-edged pothole straddled by the car’s wheels.

Drives in the car don’t see you
Many drivers in the car selectively ignore the motorcycle and the single Harley rider on it. They may see you, but they do not pay attention to you. Because you are not the cars or trucks that can be a danger to them. So, after a crash, they would say five words at many cases – I didn’t see the motorcycle. Of course, the drivers are telling the truth. It is impossible to register all the things along the road in the brains of car drivers, which will cause sensory overload. Their brains will choose to exclude the non-essentials and to focus only on those objects that are a threat or survival to them.

Yourself are also the hazards
After a long break in the winter, motorcycle riders’ skills in the spring are never going to be as sharp as they are in the autumn. So, you should try several rides to get yourself back in the groove. However, rusty skills are not the only trouble to your spring ride. Motorcycle also need to be checked carefully. Pay attention to tires and brakes. Or search for some tips and articles on Google or the forums of online biker dating sites about how to prepare your motorcycle for the spring ride. And remember to be patient on the road.

Bikers should know what to expect after the first date

You had a great time at your first date with a single biker girl or a single Harley man that you met on an online dating site. And you think you both hit it off – but what now? One situation is that you and your biker date arranged a second date at the end of your first one, then there is nothing to worry about. You just need to prepare yourself for the second one. But if there is no second date, it is up to one of you to make the next move.

If you are the biker man, then you should keep in mind that you are the one who should make the follow-up email or call to the female rider. She might be eager to wait for your response first. So, you’d better send her an email or get on the phone to tell her that you had a good time with her. It is the great chance to show your interest and love for her. If she seems nice and friendly, then you should grasp the opportunity to ask her out for a second date to enhance the romantic relationship with her. However, if the biker babe call or email you first, you should know that she may be interested in you. So, try to think about your attitude toward her and be prepared with an answer. If you feel good and would like to see her again, then just ask her out when she calls or at the email. If you don’t want to continue, then you can just tell her directly with tactful words.

If you are the biker woman, you may be the one who waits for the biker man to call or email. In that case, you should be aware of that he wants to know more about you. So, you’d better prepare an answer based on whether or not you are interested in him. For example, when he asks you out for the second date, you can reply positively if you want to see him again or you can reply negatively if you don’t feel anything with him. However, there is another situation that you may prefer to call him first if you can’t stand waiting for the call. You can call him and tell him that you are happy with him for the first date and wish he will ask you out for a second one. Or you can just call and ask him out directly. Then you both may have a happy ending.

Ways Bikers Need to Know For Motorcycle Group Riding

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.

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.
