Ever wonder how many motorcycle communities are out there? You
know, internet sites with forums, motorcycle organizational info, etc…?
Well, I took a look around and started with a Google of "motorcycle
communities". The search result brought back 200,000!! Now granted,
some of the sites that come up have either the word "motorcycle"
and/or "communities" in their description and are usually
news articles that are motorcycle related.
There are all kinds of sites out there. Biker
Nation provides over 150 links to motorcycle forums and organizations.
allows members to create a profile and network with other bikers (similar
to myspace). Other sites include: Motorcycleviews,
Get Your Ride On, Delphi
and many more.
Other sites cover "biker dating". These sites include
and the Biker
On occasion, I have visited the forum sites such as Delphi,
just to see what everyone is talking about. Well, there is no shortage
of forums to peruse! There are forums for very specific areas of interest.
For example, if you ride a Harley, a Gold Wing, a Kawaski, there is
a site for you. Then it is more specific, like V Star Riders, Women
who Ride, Women who Ride Harley's, technical forums, motorcycle transport
etc… If you have an interest, there's a forum for you (and if
not, create your own!).
These internet sites are great for many reasons, however, I
find that nothing beats interacting with other bikers in the "real
world". By this I mean at motorcycle events, rally's, bike weeks
and of course at motorcycle club functions. These are great places to
meet new riders, experienced riders, young riders and "old timers".
There is also the opportunity to look at all the different motorcycle
makes and models. You never know what your going to see!
So, get riding! The days are long and the weather fine. And
remember, Be Safe!!!!
