Scroll down for Destinations:  During 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018; this group has done some ridin! While upgrading this web site recently numerous rides were deleted in order to update this page and streamline the web site.

NOTICE:

As of 9-22-18 no more "ROAR" Rides will be emailed. It's been 10 years of great ridin and meetin everyone; but, it's time to end the group ROAR ride emails. Thanks to all who have been ridin for so many years. Take care and ride safe!  John


"ROAR Rides"  began in 2007 and,

Have ended as of 9-22-2018

=================================================================== =============================


If you do not agree with the waiver do not ride with this group ROAR! 


Needed to set a rider number to ensure a "group"; so, from the past 8 years of rides; I gotta have at least 10 riders email reply of "I'm in" within a couple of days of the sent ride email for it to be a ROARnGo...if less, most likely the destination emailed will not be a ride on the date posted & a canceled email will follow.

 

When you do receive a destination email send a reply if you plan to make it.


Most all emails include a destination; it's just a good/nice thang to be able to let em know bout how many to expect at the ride destination;


Return route is always on your own or, with a group of your choosing...usually will be some riding the suggested return route...if you are slow in gettin ready for the return ride let someone know in the group!


All rides/routes are subject to change on very short notice even enroute


Normally need a forecast of 65 or higher with rain chance of no more than 20%...high winds alone can also cancel a ride...Temps. of over 90, high winds, or just lack of interest can also be cause a  ride to be canceled/rescheduled.


U do not have to ride in a group...just meet up at the meet location & ride to the destination away from the group if, you choose.


Any ROAR destination can be canceled on very short notice...


so, keep an eye on your ROAR email close to ride date...



Much effort is put forth to keep it easy safe ridin to stay with the group. If you do not feel this is the case email roargroupjohn@aol.com and your concerns will be forwarded to the group for response/suggestion.


Ridin fast reminder/rollin stops... 


If you choose to exceed the speed limit or do rollin stops just to catch up with the group...be advised,


it's your choice to do so but, know here you are doin so at your own risk...


Remember also...it is always your choice to

 Ride with the group or, ride a different route.


 Group riding information is available on other pages above, down to hand signals.  You are responsible to read and understand all the information BEFORE you agree to ride in any group or ROAR.

Please no use of drugs or alcohol before or,  while riding for sure!

HAVE FUN!!!

Return ridin is on your...

When a "ROAR Destination" email is sent you keep in mind can ride your own route with a group of your choosin and just "meet up" with other ROAR at the destination without the dealings of concerns about riding in a large group.

Thank you for your understanding as always and, your cooperation. The past 10 years have been a blessing to me and, I know from feedback, for many of you... ROAR.

Remember: You will still receive emails to group ride or "meet up" for  breakfast, lunch, and an occasional dinner as before...some without being asked if you are interested or without being emailed about the weather predictions; the destination will be up to you under whatever conditions you like to ride.

Remember: Please do not to block intersections on group rides unless you believe imminent danger is present.

Blocking of intersections/traffic...
It's against the law folks unless U R a law enforcement officer on duty otherwise "they" tell me your personal liability can be huge in case of a crash you are found to have caused it and as a result unjury!
Rides are slow enough you can join back after a traffic signal stops you...or traffic.
Please obey all traffic laws!  Please ride legal and have the proper insurance.

*This year's Kickoff Ride is dedicated in loving memory of R. Rider Mike Ethington  who passed 12-19-16... aka "Jesus Mike"
Mike writes to ROAR 2-12-16:
John,  just wanted to share with you I have now ridden in all 50 states, the District of Colombia, several Canadian Territories and Mexico. Wednesday of this week I rented a Sportster and with my daughter as passenger rode part of the beautifully scenic coastal highway in Hawaii. It took a couple of years of waiting from the 49th, Alaska, to the 50th, Hawaii, but the views, the roar of the bike and the wind in my face made it worth the wait. Blessings...........mike

As always, ride with the group or ride your own route and see you there round 1 PM
Enjoy the ride folks and Sterett Creek... if you stay over... boats for rent, camp out, nice motel too if you like.

Invite your local Law Enforcement Agency to take part.

Do you have a contact at your local PD?  Give them a call and invite them to attend. All motor officers for sure.

Feel free to and please do forward this to all the law enforcement agencies you can, no matter their size...local county, city, state, federal and, your ridin buddies.
