While I get used to riding over here, would anyone be willing to ride out with me on my first few rides? I live in Royal Oak, but need to pick the bike up from BMW in Rochester at the weekend. Generous payment in beer can be negotiated! Matt March 6, 2018 at 6:09 pm #14051 Mike E Matt, I’d be happy to ride. I’m in Royal Oak also, so it’s pretty convenient. I’ll send you a message. -Mike March 7, 2018 at 7:28 pm #14054 Mats Ceder Hi. I live in Rochester. About 5 minutes from the BMW dealer. I will be happy to ride with you. You can reach me on my mobile (330) 860-4025. March 8, 2018 at 10:11 am #14057 Swamp Welcome Matt. March 10, 2018 at 2:27 pm #14067 Matthew Hill Thanks for the offer Mats, I’m sorry I didn’t see your reply before now. Mike was kind enough to come meet me and guide me back to Royal Oak. He also lent me a heated jacket and took me on a bonus tour around once we got back to Royal Oak because I didn’t want to stop! I’ve been reading through the ride reports from last year and I can’t wait for summer now! Looking forward to meeting more of you soon. March 25, 2018 at 12:06 pm #14136 John Dixon Hi Matt/All. I’m a Michigan native, but new to the club. I’m in Washington Twp. Just starting to get the bike out on the random nice day. I’m always game to meet up and do a ride! email@example.com March 26, 2018 at 8:07 pm #14140 Mike E John – I’m in that area a lot (I’m from Washington originally), so I’ll drop you a line when I’ll be up there sometime soon. What kind of bike are you riding – looking for pavement or dirt road rides? I have to scout new roads for the Oakland Co ADV route as well, so if that is of interest, let me know. (I also have to drop off some shirts up there soon as well… I’ll get ’em there Mats!) March 27, 2018 at 7:32 pm #14168 Mats Ceder I am always up for a ride to. If you need company scouting let me know. March 27, 2018 at 9:42 pm #14169 John Dixon Cool, I have the Oakland County ride on the calendar, so was planning to join. Glad to help you scout that. I’m on a GSA, would love to find some decent dirt roads! Hit me anytime via text at 248 219 2900 or firstname.lastname@example.org March 29, 2018 at 8:49 pm #14174 MartinR1200GS Sometimes I miss dirt roads. I never miss sand. Chasing Zach near Stockbridge two weekends ago in 33[f] and on snow covered dirt/gravel roads I missed my GS. April 7, 2018 at 5:01 pm #14200 Craig G Mike, I’m in for helping out on the Oakland County scouting ride. Let me know what days work for you.
