Ride levels,

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by deadman, Apr 21, 2013.

  1. Where do I find the ride levels now,
    I have looked all over the forum and cant find it any more,
    I want to post up a ride, and need to put a minimum ride level on it,
    And I want every one to see the ride level required,
    So I dont have people who cant keep up coming on the ride,

  3. Thanks for the quick replys, I will see if I can dig it up,
  4. Two things I can see to help...
    1. Add an entry for the Group Ride skill levels to the FAQ (pointer to the Wiki article), and
    2. Add FAQ to the Help (quick links) menu to make it more noticeable.

  5. There is a lot of new riders on NR, They want to go on a group ride,
    First thing that pops up, Whats a ride level,
    As different rides have different levels, and are quoted for group rides,

    You dont want learners on a level 4 or 5 ride, It upsets them when you say level 1, 2 or 3 cant go, and will have to leave the ride,

    Its also dangerous for the Newies that try to ride with faster riders,
    They get tired with long distances, and challenging roads, which leads to mistakes by the Newies, leading to offs,
    Its not their fault, As they just dont know what a ride level is,

    I dont like people riding above their capability, And I always explain to people to Ride at their own pace,

    I will wait for them, have two smokes if they are slow, after the third smoke, I go back looking for them,

    With Newies, My stops aren't all that far apart, so finding them is not a big issue,

  6. Here's a better idea. Put them back as a closed sticky in Ride Announcements where people will see them.
