    Supermoto/Sport/Naked Riders in Rhode Island

    Hello All,
    Looking for riders in Rhode Island to carve up tight Twisty back roads with minimal traffic. There are some good routes in south county, Coventry, 102, scituate, western cranston, scenic farm roads in CT. All experience levels and all types of bikes welcome. If you enjoy clean roads in rural areas surrounded by woods, water and farm land. I'm always down for exploring new loops. I have a 2019 Husqvarna supermoto.

    I'm in Quincy. Always up for some riding on the tight stuff. Have a DRZ400SM that I'll be learning to ride this year, but I can rip pretty good on my S1000XR.

    You like they DRZ ? I have a 2018 in my basement stock except for a jet kit and 3 x 3 mod , about a thousand miles on it . I find it nice and nimble for quick rides & back roads to work

    Picked it up the end of last season and put a thousand miles on it. So far I like it but like I said I need to learn how to ride a sumo. Super nimble, great riding position for urban streets, and lack of power makes it really fun.

    Re: Supermoto/Sport/Naked Riders in Rhode Island

    Welcome, nice bike

    Counting you I think we only got about 6 RI memebers, and from what I can tell 2 of them are racers only.

    hoping to get back into more riding this year, barely cracked 1k the past few years, but some changes. Working on a replacement for my 690SM, but they Hyper works fine for the tight back roads as well.

    Looking at the long term weather looks like spring should be here sooner than later

    Eastern CT has some great farm roads (with minimal cops), that's where I do most of my FUN riding. Hopefully we can get out for a some rides in a few months.

    Yes, lots of nice secondary roads in the area, I usually take Snake Meadow rd, Sterling rd, to Church Hill to get to 14A and 49. The 49/201 loop is a good one as well

    few different loops in this area, lot of good roads in the little sliver of CT east of 395. Sounds like the new guy will want to avoid the rideable trails in Patchaug, never know when a mud puddle will show up

    That's where I'm located, should have my Sumo replacement by next week be ready for the 1st ride

Im also do for 1st valve clearance check and I'm changing out sprockets; chain adding a fuel dongle and few other things....I'm hoping to be ready for April.....

    pretty much, I don't keep track, but there are only about 5 who regularly post. I'm sure there may be a few others who don't post / don't have RI listed, but basically for RI riders there's: R7, BackinTheSaddle, jeantarrou, Philkinson, Mgiossi, me. i'm sure there may be a few more right on the CT or MA borders as well.
    Majority of members are in MA & NH.

    Re: Supermoto/Sport/Naked Riders in Rhode Island

    Some driveways in this area but I like Chester Main, Reuterman, Ryder, Wyassup, Hangman, Grindstone, off 49, North Stonington area. On the RI - around the reservoir area. Charlestown area - Kings Factory Road and some of the back roads and routes of Charlestown and Richmond (216, 112).

    i'm sure you've noticed majority of RI riders are Harleys, with a small contingent of stretched swingarm LED sportbikes that prowl the city.

    Plus all the kids are on the instatwitter, so new young riders have no use for us old forum dwellers....

    Re: Supermoto/Sport/Naked Riders in Rhode Island

    hopefully we can get 2-4 people together to hit the back roads a few times during the season. I normally do 80% of my fun riding alone, and I think I must ride at unpopular times cause I hardly see any other riders...

    Like how I don't think I've ever passed you out on the road, which is crazy considering this list of roads above, which is basically my entrance into the CT loops....


    Need to head out to Buttonwood Farm for some ice cream.

    Re: Supermoto/Sport/Naked Riders in Rhode Island

    Same here.... I normally don't have the luxury with time to plan ahead for riding days.....it's usually a spontaneous decision when I come across enough free time to ride and I just go...... Like you said hopefully we can a couple rides and share some routes.
