Re:

Ah okay. We have a good few members in cali but I can't think of any girls there, plus cali is huge. Maybe you can find folks to ride with! Have you checked for some local motorcycle groups?

That has never been a thing. That sounds like a scam. Keep looking!

Re: Any female riders??

member fees are definitely a thing. I just paid mine. I could ride with the club without being a member. Actually I did all of last season. Then, towards the end, I was asked to be a member. So I accepted. Now I get access to rides that were private before I was a member as well as other benefits, such as more say in what happens in the club.

Money can't buy happiness. But it can buy a motorcycle. And you can't be sad on a motorcycle.<br /><br />"That's kinda like bragging you got 30K miles out of your original oil filter before the rod bearings failed."

I'm still confused on what the purpose of the "club" is...

Is the purpose kind of to get you to come out more often... do they buy lunch on long trip days...?

Re: Any female riders??

The club is just like a local bike forum where rides are posted, people talk about bikes, people ask for help with their bikes, people talk about whatever. We have members and non-members. Non-members can only see part of the forum. They can't see the member section. You start out as a non-member. If you see a ride posted that you want to do, you're free to show up to it. If you saw it, it was in the non-member section, so it's basically an open invite. If you show up to lots of rides, you ride your own ride, and aren't a complete d-bag, then you may end up being asked to become a member of the club. First I started being invited to member rides as a non-member. The reason they wait is to make sure you're not an idiot who doesn't maintain their bike, rides over their head, rides 5 under the speed limit, etc. It's also for you to see whether the club is for you. Being a member gets you access to the member part of the forum as well, so you will see more rides posted. Rides that you wouldn't have seen before. They don't show those to the public because they're fast, and they don't want to worry about a newb riding over his/her head, they go far, and/or they don't want to wait at every stop sign for someone doing 5 under the speed limit the whole way. It also gives you a little more say about how you want things to happen in the club. The fee for being a member goes towards upkeep of the website, a shirt, and into a "pot". Say my bike breaks down. Another member will go get their truck/trailer, tow my bike home, then take the gas money out of the pot.

I can't say if that is how all clubs work, but I can definitely understand if there is a member fee. With that said, I would assume they would allow to you to go on a few rides to see if it was for you.

Re: Any female riders??

You should try "BARF" ( http://www.bayarearidersforum.com/ ) since you're in Pleasanton.

A lot of members go on group rides all over the bay area.

Good luck!
