About the New England Riders

NER is a group of motorcyclists that self organize in the forum to ride and have fun with other riders.  We are not a club - no dues, membership, rules or officers.  We are an inclusive group and all motorcycle brands are welcome.  We believe in safe riding and being respectful towards others.  Everyone is welcome to participate in the forum, the Facebook Group, at social gatherings or on rides. New England Riders is about motorcycles and riding.

Feel free to browse here and our web site.  Before posting please read our forum guidelines.  Thank you.

Also, for extensive information on riding in New England - best roads, places of interest, good food and much more, visit the New England Riders web site at  Although most of the "action" is on this forum we also have a Facebook page where we cross post the most important rides, etc.


2015 NER RTE's & Events


RTE's (Ride To Eat) are events where we ride to a location, eat and socialize - on our bikes weather permitting - sometimes weekly - less during the winter.  Anyone can sponsor a RTE. See the RTE folder to see how it's done.  Other NER events are also listed here. Everyone is welcome.

2015 NER Ride Calendar


This is an overview of rides posted in the Rides & Runs folder.  Anyone can post and lead a ride.  All are welcome.  There are other "off forum" rides that also occur between folks who have become friends through NER.  It's all about riding, enjoying each others company and making friends along the way.

Note: Although NER is not a club and it does not have rules, everyone is encouraged to read "Suggestions for Group Rides" (click here) as it provides ideas for safe group riding.

We take safe group riding seriously.  If you are not experienced at riding in a group please let the ride leader know when you sign up.  If you are ever uncomfortable on any ride for any reason, talk to the ride leader or drop out of the ride.  Your safety is your responsibility.

Please Note: NER is not an organization. Ride leaders are not trained experts at planning or leading group rides but rather just fellow riders who want to share their love of the road with fellow motorcyclist.  As always, each rider is responsible for themselves and the operation of their motorcycle.  "Ride your own ride" and "ride within your capabilities" are more than sayings.  You are responsible for your safety.

For the peace of mind of your fellow riders, we'd appreciate only non-alcoholic beverages be consumed during NER rides. Thank you.
