Motorcycle Group Rides
One of the biggest appeals of motorcycle riding is sharing the experience of riding with other friends and riders. A group ride can be a rewarding way to share the motorcycling experience. But riding in a group can present certain specific hazards that a motorcyclist riding alone might not have to account for. These can include entangling handle bars or an impaired ability to avoid a hazard.
Injuries can occur on a motorcycle at any time, even during an enjoyable group ride. Your motorcycle injury may have been more than just rider error. You need experienced and dedicated legal counsel if you believe negligent driving or roadway defects may have contributed to your injury.

Proper Techniques for a Group Ride
Sharing the road with other motorcyclists can be invigorating and can really elevate your motorcycle riding experience if it is done properly. There are certain steps that should be taken to make sure that your group ride is safe and enjoyable.
- Be prepared for any situation by assigning a group leader and discussing the elements of your ride beforehand.
- Have a common understanding of hand signals before riding so that the group can communicate while on the road.
- Ride in a staggered formation leaving at least a 2 second gap between you and the person directly in front of you. Leave a 1 second gap between you and the person offset in front of you.
- Check to make sure all members of the group are comfortable riding at the pace and style of everyone else.
- Have planned stops so that if someone gets separated they know where to rejoin the group.
These steps can make your group ride an even more enjoyable day on the road.
