Riding group

I've been thinking about joining a riding group and wanted to get any input from you all.

Any members of Star Touring or CMA willing to talk about their experiences.

If i qualified i would join the combat vets but was never in a combat zone. So any other groups for Military that would take a retiree would interest me.

I have riden with the group up here with nothing but good results. A few things I have noticed is they don't talk about what you do or church stuff which is weird because most of the time people are curious about someone new to the group. All this group does is ride for the ride and stop only at food/gas stops. We will join the group for more riding next year. Jim

I checked out the local star group near me but wasn't feeling them. I started riding with a local meet up group and I really enjoy that. They are definitely a ride to eat, eat to ride group which is lovely...sometimes. The group has gotten really large and I ended up getting a local group of Women On Wheels going...just in its infancy but so far so good. Very enjoyable to meet other people, get other ride ideas. Women On Wheels is family friendly so men and children are welcome, they just don't vote, keeping it a female centric but not exclusive organization. Definitely check out Meetup for some other groups. My best advice is to see how they organize their rides and see if there is a match for you in terms of safety. I don't like to ride with groups that block or allow people to switch sides...too much potential for accidents.

I've been riding with the STAR touring group for 3 years. Nice folks, enjoyable rides. Some ride Harleys or Goldwings or Spyders. We don't care - we just enjoy the rides and lunches together.
