Griffin Run, 2.0 - April 11, 2015, 06:03 PM

We are going to do another Noob run at the end of the month. As usual, we will have a pre-riding class on group ride etiquette and pre-ride motorcycle inspections.

Here's the deets:

April 26th, 0915
Class starts at 0930.
Stands up at 1000

The route is a Modified Griffin run. Should take about 1.5 hours to get there and a little less to get back. Very technical, but very doable for the new rider, at a newb pace.

I will need at least one experienced rider to volunteer for a sweeper. R1, I'm looking your way, buddy.

GRIFFIN RUN, BIOTCH!

IN - but I'd rather walk through a gonad-kicking machine than sweep a n00b ride.

IN, thanks for arranging and doing it.

Cool. Looks like we're getting a decent crowd. Anybody want to volunteer their bike for the maintenance class? Free oil change.

So what's this "noob" ride about? I assume it starts at your shop in VA? Is it all back roads? If not, how much highway? Thanks.

Yes, it's all back roads. It's a noob ride, which means we will be going at a slow pace. Mallory, we can do your bike if you want. Gotta be here a little early. Say around 9:00

It's supposed to rain all day Sunday. I will post Saturday evening whether or not this is still happening. I don't want a noob ride in the rain.

Noob ride in the rain! What could possibly go wrong? But seriously I avoid riding in the rain for extended periods of time. It just isn't fun.

Noob rides in the rain work out pretty good because not too many folks get to feeling the dangerous kind of "froggy" in the rain.



There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.
