Solo and Gang Riding



The Difference Between Solo & Gang Riding


There are some major differences between riding solo and gang riding, and it is important that you familiarize yourself with these key differences so that you can make the appropriate changes in your riding style to ensure that you have a fun, safe, and exiting ride. There are advantages for bothsolo and gang riding, but it is often advantageous to ride together in a group.


Groups Provide Visibility


One of the biggest advantages of group riding over riding solo is the fact that groups provide better overall visibility on the road. Sometimes, it can be difficult for driversto see and locate solo riders on the road. Anyone that has been riding for any amount of time has likely been placed in some precarious situations because other drivers were not able to easily see you when changing lanes or making turns. Groups do not have to deal with these issues as often and can be more easily avoided by other drivers on the road. The visibility that is provided to riders by groups makes it easy for them navigate busy roads and highways without the safety issues that many run into. Additionally, having more riders will always ensure that you have the proper motorcycle tools and know-how to ensure that you ride as safely as possible.

Predicting Bike Movements


Riding in a group also makes it a bit easier for other drivers on the road to predict movements of bike riders. In groups, riders typically maintain even distances between each other and vehicles, giving a lot more of a heads up to riders behind motorcycles and bikes when changing lanes or getting off at exits. Maintaining fixed positions and signaling together can make the intended actions of riders much clearer to other vehicles on the road. 


More Fun


While it is plenty of fun to ride on your own, it is always best to enjoy the open road with other individuals in your area. Being with a group can always be a fun time and can make pit stops that much more interesting. Traveling in a group makes stopping for a meal or event more enjoyable and gives you a group to spend your time with, particularly on the longer trips that you will be traversing. 


In Case of Disaster


It is always good to be with a group of people should disaster strike. If you were to ever be in an accident, it’s best to be with other people that will look out for you. Having a group of individuals there that are able to call the paramedics should the worst happen is always an excellent idea. They will have the proper motorcycle gear and first aid equipment to deal with any potential problems – more people mean more storage space . You want to make sure that you are prepared for anything and have people there to help you in these situations. You are not always in control of what happens on the road, and it is best that you are able to get ahold of authorities as quickly as possible and have knowledgeable people watching out for you. 


Traveling solo can be a fun time – but it is always best to share your favorite activities with others that also love it! There are also many safety benefits associated with riding in a gang or group. Always ride safe and don’t forget to use proper motorcycle luggage to keep your belongings with you on long trips safely.
