Ride Meets and Bike Types

Discussion in 'Cruisers' started by Rodney Newell, Dec 9, 2008.

  1. Hi Guys
    I'm pretty new to the Netrider thing and was curious to know if there are separate ride hook ups for those on cruisers and sportsbikes. Looking at the calender of events it would seem that all types of bikes ride together. Surely Sportsbikes and Cruisers prefer different routes and riding pace.

    Any feedback would be appreciated

  2. there's slow sportsbike riders, and quick Cruiser riders.



    without being facetious, roads are roads and bikes are bikes. If you want to ride with only one group then find a site that caters for them, and go along to their meets....
  3. Occasionally there's a cruiser-only ride posted, and the cruiser blokes don't usually turn up to rides that are listed as hardass warp-speed runs. If you want to get something together just for one or the other, post it up and see if it flies. You never know who might be interested.
  4. Cheers Guys for your replies.
    May have to do a few calender rides and see how it goes. Hopefully its when the slow sportsbike riders are present. :)
  5. You will always be encouraged to ride at your own pace if its an open ride. :wink:
    If pace is expected from participants it will be/should be made clear. :)
    You will never be expected to keep up with some NR riders. :LOL:
  6. say if you posted up a ride and I saw your bike is a cruiser (small/med/huge ccs), then id usually have an idea about the ride; cruisy.
    Therefore fill in the details of your ride.

    Just indicate your ride grade when posting it into the calendar: Lev.1 Sightseeing to Lev.5 Challenging Ride.

    On a large group ride like the Honda Riders Club, people usually sort themselves out. Some cruisers like to keep up with faster bikes on the f/way then back on their pace on the tight twisty sections.
