If any of you are looking for a group to ride with (not just charity rides), I would suggest you look into your local SCRC chapter. No dues, no lengthy commitments, no requirement to go to every meeting... Just a good group of riders of all makes. I was really frustrated trying to find a group to ride with until I found this group. I actually hooked up with them when I was the only one to show up for a STAR Riders chapter ride (never would happen with SCRC). May be something you want to chack out for yourself. It is a big organization with chapters all over the US but especially in the southeast. Just did an impromptu ride this weekend and 37 bikes showed up.
