I notice that on the rides a skill level is listed. 

I am new to COG and am looking at doing my first ride maybe this summer.  Is there a table that describes the skill levels and what to expect when I show up?  I have only been riding street bikes for about 2 years on a Ninja 250 and the C10 was just acquired 2 weeks ago.  By the time I try my first ride with a group I will have taken a followup MSF riding course and should have logged about 500 miles.
Just Riding to Enjoy the Open Air.  Started riding late (66), so will always be the novice in the crowd.

Welcome Rebel Longhorn;
I don't know that "skill level listings" are appropriate.
All rides are done on normal roads.
Only difference is that we try to find roads that are as twisty as possible...

COG always says, Ride your own Ride.
The most important thing is; DO NOT ride over your head!!

As your new to the C-10, do not try to keep up with someone that is riding above your comfort level.
Instead; (before the ride), communicate with the group
    Tell whomever your riding with;
    Your new to the C-10 and will be following.
      (Try to determine the Pace they intent to ride. Some ride leisurely, some push)
    Ask them to have someone wait when they turn or stop.

If you feel you aren't comfortable with the pace, do not just quit (as they will go back to look for you).
                                                                       at the next stop, tell them you are going on your own, and let them go.

Ride safe, Ted

When I enter an event, I do take the skill level category seriously.  I try to pick the appropriate expected skill level for the area where the event will be held.  There are no set guidelines for this, for me the more curves and hills the more skill level.

This category is only a guidance so do not let that throw you off from attending an event.  There are always some smell the roses type of folks, me being one of them, where you will not have to worry about keeping up with the more spirited riders.  In addition you may be able to pick up a few riding tips.

Like Ted stated, "ride your own ride", when you get that funny feeling in your stomach, and you know it is not from lunch, then it would be best to slow it down.

I have found that COG members are very accommodating, and if they know there is a new (entry level) rider in the bunch they will go out of their way to assist in any way they can.  They will wait at turns and give advice (thought it may not always be good advice  :rotflmao:), but it is always with good intentions.

Just don't be afraid or embarrassed to tell someone you are a new or re-entry rider, we were all there at some point.

Hello again Rebel, I hope I was clear in my previous note.
Was trying to be instructive, but it may have sounded harsh.
If so, my apologies...

Fred said it better than I. COGgers are very accommodating. Particularly for a new rider....
"DO", Come ride with us!!

Ride safe, Ted

Rebel, you won't be alone out there. I have been riding for about 6 months. I'm planning on being at the Arkansas ride and I'm sure there will be lots of people passing me up, but I will have fun regardless. I drive in Houston traffic, but I get very little exposure to twisties. I think it'll be fun just to be out there with other folks and riding some new roads. :great:

That's great!!!! I want to see your new trike and hear about your big trip.

We have a fire pit at the Maverick and it's about a 5 minute ride from the RV park to the Maverick Inn.  :campfire:

Need a fire master? If nobody normally does it. My fires at Helen alerted NORAD to a missile launch.

If you have one, I'll just bring the Fireball.

Because I can't make Big Bend nor the Arkansas Rally, I (and Jim) are planning to go to Arkansas for a ride in October.
Not a South Central event, but wanted to post it in case anyone is interested in riding with us?
Tentative plans are Oct 9-13.
Anyone interested?

Well, because of a new job I may not make Arkansas in September like I had planned and Big Bend is not certain. If I can I would love to join you guys going to Arkansas in October. I have to see how this new job is going to go first. I hate not being able to make plans, but I hate not being able to make money even worse! >:(

Thanks guys. I'm a pipefitter with some skill so jobs aren't too hard to find, but once I start my hours may be crazy for a while. I'll get my riding in going to work and back :). If I don't make it I hope you guys have a safe and awesome time.

Just a quick update. I start a new job Monday. Unfortunately it's 6 days a week so I won't be doing much of anything for a while.  :'( Worse than that, my bike was running a little off so I pulled the sparkplugs and oil is leaking down into the wells. I guess I'm going to have to pull the valve covers and if I have to do that I might as well adjust the valves. If I'm doing that it's time for me to send my carbs to SISF for the spa treatment. As long as I'm doing that I'll change all the fluids and it could use a rear tire. I'm figuring I'll be without the bike for a couple of months. :truce: Fortunately I live in Houston and I can ride through the winter. I guess I won't be getting together with you folks until next year though. I guess that's a good reason to reup on my dues.
