I added a sentence about what to do after the ride.

Good idea. After the nasty incident last year I think that procedure is definitely needed.

I have to admit i did not know all the hand signals so i'm happy i check it out.

One question, tapping the top of your helmet... Does that also mean heads up for cop or accident? That is how i always knew it.

Good info- accidents happen a lot in group rides. I've been street riding for 18 years and I know of 5 accidents from group rides- two of them very serious. They all stemmed from riders not communicating during the ride and not following any protocol.

If  there is a TRIKE in the group  ,you dont stager with it.  Also a Trike should be at the rear . Reason the brakes  are very strong and stopping distance is much less than a 2 wheeler. also add  to  #1 full tank of gas  and empty Bladder

Let's not forget the "old" arm signals for left and right turns (which I try to as much as possible), after all bulbs burn out.

Still use'm as some of the bikes don't have signals....

Great material and safety is always a priority when I ride.  Thanks.  I'll probably print it out and keep a copy in my scoot for reference before each group ride.

I somehow can't imagine a trike stopping faster than any super sport or even most any lightweight motorcycle for that matter. Maybe some riders can't stop their bike on two wheels as fast, but its not the machine making them take longer to stop.

I was thinking of putting up a whole etiquette thing so we could settle on the rules that would be ours.  First, I need to find something good as a starting point, but I know that kind of thing is out there.  Or we could go with Emily Post's rules for afternoon tea.
