Cool Looking for bikers to cruise around with...

Looking for other riders who go out riding at night and don't mind if I tag along last minute. I'm a new-ish rider but fairly capable. I ride a 2015 R3 and I'm in the New Baltimore/Macomb Twp. area just cruising around gratiot, Hall rd or metro parkway among other roads. I'm always out on Friday and Saturday nights, and Sunday afternoons. I'm interested in meeting other riders, preferably on sportbikes but I'm not opposed to cruisers. Basically just looking for ppl that don't mind a chick riding with them and who can be patient. Let me know if you are interested.

I avoid night ridding:
1-my 13zx6r headlight are equal to no light, poor design, lot of peeps complaining on it, but what you expect from a race bike. btw i try adjusting them no luck.
2- Deers, animals around me seem active at night when I can't see them,
3-I see drunk jackasses just driving to the store at night
4-bike seemed louder at night
5-I can't hit WSL at night, Good enough in @m,
6-Mom told me nothing good happen after midnight
Voila

Thumbs up

I am game for a Sunday afternoon. I like to ride fast, but also do relaxed pace loops, too.

In fact, I have a good friend I ride with who's on a 250cc Piaggio MP3 scooter. He's in his 70's, but still loves riding. We always have a good time!
This coming holiday wknd may be an option.

What's the best way to get ahold of anyone who wants to ride? It'll often be something where I'm heading out to f around on my bike and it might be 8 or 9 pm. I have to go more at night because I need to wait until my kids are in bed. They're only young once and I want to spend time with them when I can...or until they drive mommy to drink.

Pretty much what you already did, post up a thread asking if anyone's interested.

Totally understand your reason, but am personally unaware of any night-owl riders.

Random thoughts as to evening rides.
- Go to downtown Royal Oak Thu nights. You'll meet tons of people riding out late.
- I hear there's a Friday night bike thing at Gibraltar North?

I usually see tons of bikers, mostly on sportbikes, between 10 and midnight when I go out on Friday and Saturday nights. They're usually on Gratiot but some are on 16 or Hall rd. I'd love to go out earlier when there's more ppl out but I have to wait until 8pm or so. I'd love to hit up RO for bike night but it always seemed a little intimidating to go alone.

I used to roll with other Ninja 250R riders & some BMW folks, we used to do Night Ice cream ride/hang outs.
But that was YEARS ago and have lost touch with them since then. It was fun. Used to hit up Mt. Clemens on Wednesday Nights during the Car club Nights @ a ice cream place. But last I heard wed nights in the Clem DONT happen anymore. No bikers, no muscle car guys!

Oooh, if your into muscle cars, a few of us (and my 2 co-workers in their 69 Camaro's) used to hit up 13 mile & Woodward each Friday Night. @ the SHELL GAS station. Hang out around there and people watch. Some folks do burn outs, do some slight (up to 60mph from a redlight dead stop) Drag racing!
A few sport bikes will cruise up and down too, showing off, poppin' wheelies, getting pulled over from RO police, etc!

My co-worker told me the other day that THIS STILL HAPPENS @ 13 mile/woodward!

We could maybe check it out this Friday! LMK . . .
