hello every1...been a long time i have posted sumthing here n i've got a reason now...

tomorrow i will be going for my first ever group ride with along with some of the riders from the local motorcycle riders association :D:D:D.... i have never done it before....:confused::confused: it might sound dumb to some of u, but im kinda worried as im a noob to this...:p also, i havent signed up for a membership yet, its going to be a free trial ride for 2maro and if i like it and they thing im good enough to join them, i will continue..

so i was wondering are there any things i shud be keeping in mind...apart from general common sense while riding and bit of googling abt the do and donts, i thot some insight from you people wud be helpful too... so if u guys have some experience of group rides and gatherings, please feel free to make some comments...:):)
also, is there anything i shud be carrying along with me apart from my gears n bike..!!(this sounds evn more stupid)

bdw, the ride is going to be about 300km (186 miles) in total...and on really steep down hill curvy roads while going and exactly opposite on way back..!!

A well planned and disciplined group ride has its fun moments, but, I prefer only a few like minded, similar styled riders to hang with. I'd rather solo ride than end up being held hostage on a group ride that is too large with undisciplined rogue riders. IMO:D

I wld expect you to be sore. Generally speaking, no matter what bike one rides on a long days ride and dealing with windy conditions, a rider will be sore.....unless the rider is in athetically good shape and a solid muscle mass. I wonder if the group you rode with took frequent breaks? I tend to do that on what ever bike I ride. Which is why I am of the opinion, it is NOT the km a rider racks up, it is the JOURNEY.

Some groups I have rode with ride hard, and fast. Over taking every vehicle on the road at break neck speeds. That kind of riding is exhausting. Especially mentally and if it is not the kind of riding you do, and you don't really know the ppl, it will be physically taxing.

Don't give up on the ceebee. There are several of us that have taken our bikes on long day rides and complaints. These riders however have set their own pace and rode within their limits or with ppl they know with a similar riding approach. Consequently they have had a good time.
