A Guide to Group Motorcycle Riding in Texas

By King Law Firm on March 12, 2013

Most people think of motorcycle riding as a solo activity. Although all bikers enjoy the independence and sense of freedom biking offers, many enjoy riding in a group. Some consider group riding, whether with a group of friends on a quiet Sunday morning or along with an organized rally to raise funds for a good cause, to be the ultimate motorcycle riding experience.

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and motorcycle lawyer Ray King have the following motorcycle safety tips to pass along that will help you and your fellow riders stay safe while enjoying the ride.

  • Have size limits—keep the number of riders down to five to seven. In rallies, break the group up into smaller sub-groups, each with its own lead rider and tail rider.
  • Hold a brief riders’ meeting in order to assess all riders’ skill levels and assign a lead and tail or sweep rider.
  • Ride in staggered formation, never side-by-side. Staggered riding allows enough of a cushion space between bikes so that all have sufficient time to react to road hazards — the lead bike stays in left third of the lane and the next rider is one second behind riding in the right third of the lane.
  • Be prepared — make sure to have your cell phone with you. One member of each group should also pack a tool kit, and another a first aid kit.
  • Take a look through your mirrors to see those behind you and maintain a steady speed and avoid putting pressure on trailing riders to keep up.
  • If you become separated from the group, never break traffic laws or ride beyond your skill level just to catch up to your fellow riders.

Ray King enjoys riding motorcycles as much as you do. He welcomes comments about this blog that might help other riders stay safe while riding in groups.
