Next meet:

Tuesday 28, 8:00PM @ LIK Nitrogen Ice Cream located at 320 Robson.

We can either meet and ride there or meet there depending on where everyone lives.

Discounts will be the same. Parking hopefully right infront of the store but watch the signs as 2 of the meters are no parking after 8PM

Dependant on weather also

The average squamish run has more people than anything that's organized here... always fresh faces and new rider grouping for people unfamiliar with the route. More fun than sitting around or getting stuck in stop and go traffic. Both are pretty social, but I've been getting a bit of an elitist vibe from RS(again?)

Yup I've been out on a few Monday night Gelato rides. A bit too big sometimes and seems like there's always people crashing. Nice crowd tho for the most part.

Elitist vibe from rs motorcycle people? That's not good...

Guess that would have been confusing from a poor choice of words... But my opinion is based on the fact that I haven't really seen, or heard from anyone in this particular group in months tbh. The event in itself is either too infrequent, or only broadcasted to a select few after the point. Most of the people from the moto section here have been chill enough, but still pretty mum on any other prospective gatherings, etc.
The again* comment was more from my experience in the Import/Car section, as some of you may have heard me refer to it as the spoiled brat club.

I honestly didn't want to write a reply to this, but it's bothering me so much so I might as well just get it out there.

The reason the meets are infrequent is the weather. I can't control this. If it sucks, the meets don't happen. If it's nice, why not. Ivanna and I take the time to set up something for the community. It does not benefit us at all but it's nice to meet new people that share common interests.

If you want to meet bike people, talk about bikes and how fast you can ride up Squamish, don't bother coming here. Personally, I could care less about anything to do with motorcycles. I'd rather debate about our housing market, business, and people driving over the curb at the exit to superstore.

It honestly feels like there is no appreciation at all from you. If you don't want to come because it's boring, then don't come. The meets will go on. Life will go on. There is no need to tell people that haven't been to the meet that it's boring or there is an elitist vibe. It's actually the totally opposite. I don't even know what an elitist vibe is to be very honest.

Since I started the meets, this feels like a personally attack on me. I own and operate 3 businesses. My life is work. I live and breathe work. So when I take some time out of my busy schedule to do something for the community, it's not good enough ?? Trust me, I have better things to do with my time (making money)

Instead of bitching about how shitty my meet is, how about you plan these weekly meets at your shop, where you offer free / discounted things to people you don't know?

Ok I'm done, good night

Lol yeah. I work Tuesday's and don't have time to ride up squam and baker and shit. But I do have time to ride up the road (and drive even) to hang with friends.

The appreciation comment is only from this post. The guys thank me all the time for hosting (which you guys don't need to). Just showing up, hanging out in your bike or car is enough appreciation for me.

I wasn't attacking anyone in particular here... I'm just expressing my disappointment how there is nothing else that gets posted up, and the times I ask if anyone else wants to join in on something else, it's met with silence. If anything I commend kr4l for trying and getting people together. I honestly don't have a problem coming out to just hang out and shoot the shit either, but (and don't flame me for this) it would be nice if there was a gathering with an emphasis on riding?

@geist

I know you don't mean any harm but your poor choice of wording makes you look like a total ass. I apologize for getting so worked up over it. I slept on it and what's done is done.

I'm all for coming together and meeting up on a weekly basis but to plan a group ride, route, getting stuck at the lights is a pain in the ass that I don't want to deal with. Honestly, I don't feel all that comfortable in a group setting. Possibly cause I'm still a newb or that the wife is riding along and her confident level, or just watching too many YouTube videos of people doing stupid shit. The last meet we rode out downtown. It was great. Everyone was super chill and tame but there's also that insecurity I have of those aggressive cagers that feel the need to do stupid shit. Something about the mentality of drivers when they see a group of riders scares the fuck outta me.

To be fair, people in cars are there whether your in a group or not. Also, the RS crew is painfully respectful lol. I ride with ppl on here and it's no faster or aggressive than in a car. No wheels, burn outs, lane splitting etc. Extremely noob friendly

I totally agree with you. Everyone is very respectful and doesn't do anything stupid at all. Then there's that's one guy that saw us riding in a group by the Arthur Laing bridge and does a wheelie. All it takes is one bad apple
