Hi there,

Please check out barf aka http://www.bayarearidersforum.com

Under the group ride section look for mgr aka "mellow group rides"

Also ninjette meets which are fellow ninja 250/300 riders.

Both of these group rides focus on safety and many are new riders. You'll learn routes and just enjoy the ride. These group rides strongly discourage show offs and speed demons.

I'll ride with you as soon as my foot heals.

I've had my bike for about a month now, and live in San Mateo. Problem is, with a permit I can't (not supposed to) go on freeways, so that would be a long trip :). I rode a bike years ago, but have to start over. Learning going slow takes more practice than fast.. Do you try parking lots and hills? I've noticed it gets pretty damn windy at 50+ and is not as fun.

I am from san mateo too! Vallejo is 45 mins. from here.... Next time you're around san mateo area, take sr 35 then take sr 9 or sr 35 then sr 84 towards la honda then you will hit highway 1 and you can cruise near the beach...

Hey - just saw your sig.

Which ebay levers did you get and from which vendor? Do you recommend them? I really dont like the stock friction area being so "high" and want to get some adjustable shortys, yet I don't feel like spending $150-250.

Thanks!

Throwing up a quick post to mention that I'm currently in Mountain View but commute to San Mateo daily. Only been riding for about a month / 1000 miles so I fall cleanly into the new rider category.

Hey hey! I'm new to the forums but been riding for awhile. I live in Vallejo too! We should meet up and hang. PM me! I ride with 4 guys here in Vallejo and 2 out in Fairfield. Have you rode along Silverado trail? If not its a great place to just ride.

You guys in the Bay Area might want to visit one of Doc Wongs' Clinics. They are free and he has been putting out some great info for over a dozen years that I know of..Just Google Doc Wong.
