Message about the new rider forum

Hi all,

Jim and I are happy to be helping out here. We want to put forth a few ground rules about this forum section:

First and foremost, this forum is intended to be a place where new riders can come get advice and guidance on where/how to start. We want all riders to enjoy a long and safe "career" riding bikes.

Second, we want the advice given to come from those who truly have experience riding on the street.

Third, we want the advice to come WITHOUT any flaming. Remember that we all started with no experience and may have thought we knew much more than we actually did. Be gentle.

I'm going to restart the rider's resume thread locking the old one and eventually un-sticking it. If you want to offer advice here, please post your riding resume so new riders have some idea how to value your input. If you're a new or wanna-be rider, please refrain from offering advice that's outside of your direct experience.

Questions? Send me a PM.

Moderator - New riders, help me fix it and riders' gear. Send me a PM with questions, suggestions, or issues.

Never out-ride your ability to react (even stop) within the distance you can see (at least on the street).

Great content for new riders at:
