A: There is no better place to learn safe group riding techniques than our H.O.G. chapter. Riding motorcycles is inherintly risky so we promote rider education and safe riding practices. If you are brand new to riding motorcycles we recommend that you become comfortable with riding your bike before participating in a group ride. Once you are comfortable riding your motorcycle, H.O.G. chapter group rides are an excellent place to start learning about group riding. We ride in a staggered formation to ensure everyone has plenty of visibility and space to maneuver. Even on rides where we have a large turnout, we split up into smaller groups to make it easier to get through traffic lights and intersections. We obey all traffic laws and we never have any open road shootouts that you may have seen on "Sons of Anarchy".
