Hey OcMoto,

I'm here to ride. I've been riding over a year and half , I'd like to join some group rides and get around some experienced riders. I hope that's good with you. I suck at the internet forum thing so I won't be posting unless it is ride related.

Welcome Aboard Chad! Rides are sometimes hard to come by because of established groups and friends that ride together a lot but once in a while you'll see a few rides posted. That being said, don't feel you have to join someone else's ride, feel free to create one of your own and send out an invite.

What type of rides interest you the most?

I test rode a Duke 690 fun bike but vibrated like nobody's business. Hope your handle doesn't mean your living on the street  :32:

I've rode GMR,Azua,Ortega, and I live close to Live oak. I'm interested in rides I can learn from . I'd like to take Streetmasters , or Kieth Codes level 1 class. I'm a survivalist kind of rider. Just looking to improve by getting around good people, who believe in riding your own ride.

I got use to the vibration as much as one can, to see out my mirrors I have to grab them. That sucks. And on the freeway the duke puts up a windy fight the whole time. I will forsure look into bolt on shield of some kind soon. It has great midrange and for commuting to work on the streets , it's like a deer (light on its feet).

Cool. Myself, Rogue, thepretender and couple of others do rides in the fore mentioned places as well as Malibu, ACH, Palomar and other places less travelled. We are in the same vein of ride your own ride. Hopefully if the timing is right we'll have another ride soon and we'll post it up.

Cheers

Welcome!

I've owned a few thumpers and loved them.


Ride on,

Thanks everyone. If you see me on an rsvp  and I show up to a ride, I can at least say I introduced myself.
