Welcome to BM.    Nowt stopping you from posting ride outs and meet ups yourself.   Pick a day n time, put a post up on the events thread and see what happens.  It's how I did it when I joined BM.  

Also get over to squires n meet some other bmers.   I believe there is a meet up next Sunday.  Again check the events threads.

Absolutely.  I've done a few rides out to Wales and a camping trip to angelsey, as well as a few nights out.   You want to ride and have company then post and see who responds.   You get out of this site what ya put in.   
Meeting at squires is a good way of meeting your local bmers.  So you drink some coffee and sit for a bit, but you have a chat....at least you make contact and make friends,. There are quite a few that like a good ride out over your way.

Dont let being new stop you from putting up rides.

Some of us (me) ain't fit enough to ride for miles after we've  ridden to the meeting place, and sitting drinking and chatting is good for me cos I am at home alone 24/7 and it sucks!

We ride out regularly, I've already extended the hand of friendship  to you Denny, but you seem to think our style of riding won't be your style (?)

My other half rides all year round, motorcycles are his only form of transport, so if you would like to join us for a couple of rideouts feel free. If not then organise something yourself and post it up. Btw, we go to the East Coast, Moors, Derbyshire, Lakes, Scotland, down South to Hampshire, Wales we've been down to The Ace, Loonies. We don't just trundle up to Squires for the afternoon,it's a meeting point for riders coming from a relatively large area. As you already know we use Holmfirth as a meeting point too. Give it a go, you never know, you never know you may like it.

There is always stuff going on, but I have noticed people tend to organise stuff in smaller groups, usually by pm or fb. It seems to be if you know people you get to find out about the runs.

The key is to meet folk, let them know you are interested in getting out n about, suggest some places and watch the ball roll. 

All you have to do with regards to forums and ride out is think of somewhere you would like to go, choose a date (try to pick one that hasn't got a rally on, as more people will be available).
Start a thread, and ask if anyone is interested in joining you.  You can always add it as an event to the calendar so peeps can add themselves to it and can see who is going.   Good luck Thumbs Up

RB is an expert at organising stuff, so she will have her own tips on how to make it a success.
btw previous post should be Loomies grrr! Spell check!

Like Linz says......pick a day and a route and put up a "whose interested" thread    

Put the description and date in the title so it's clear, ie, ride out to Morecambe on .../..../....

Describe the type of ride you are aiming for.

"Fast riders only, route ...." or "open to all, learner friendly route"

The more detail the better.   

Once you have an idea as to who is interested you can submit as an event   you can submit anyway, but I tend to wait and see if anyone is interested.

I've not organised anything for about a year, but if you go back through the threads you will find one, usually called Wales trip.

If you want to do a social, pick a date, place (pub, club, etc) and again see whose intersted.  Have a look at a few Catkins' done....York n chester.  

A lot of the general rides will be mixed.   As long as the fast ones stick together and the meeting points are known, they go off to play, whilst the rest of us do a more leisurely speed.

Hope that helps
