  • Hi, from Virginia Beach

    Like the title says. Live in Virginia Beach when not on deployment. Looking to start a drill team locally if I can find enough riders.

        Thanks Cruiseman, looking forward to this site and hoping the drama from other forums doesn't make its way here.

          Hello from Portsmouth, VA.

          USNRider, please tell me more about your drill team idea. I usually ride every Sat morning with the Honda Riders of Tidewater from Honda of Norfolk. I upgraded from a '98 Valkyrie to a '12 Wing earlier this year.

            Good morning Rick,

            A friend and I are working together practicing basic drill team maneuvers right every few weeks when we have free time. We've had a few others tell us they are interested, but they haven't shown up to practice yet. I figure, if we get 6-10 people together we can have a solid group so if a person doesn't show we still have enough to practice or even put on a show if there is a venue. The idea is to use the drill team to promote motorist awareness so we can hopefully reduce the number of car/motorcycle crashes.

            I went to Wing Ding in Madison this year and even had the opportunity to practice with experienced drill team riders and put on a show during the event. It was easier than I thought it would be to get a group of people to learn a routine and put on the show. Now, two of the people leading the practice were experienced people but the other six had never done it before and none of the 8 had met before our first practice. The routine was basic, but still enjoyed by the crowd at Wing Ding. New teams can still put on a nice show while also learning to ride together and keeping safe distances from each other to reduce the risk of a mishap or damage.

            If you are interested please let me know so we can set up a time and place to meet and discuss or even get the bikes moving. I figure once we get 3-4 bikes anyone on the fence will see what we are doing and at least come to support us and maybe even give it a shot. Here is a shortened video that my wife took of the show in Madison to give you an idea of what types of routines a newer team would be doing.

              Thanks for the video. I'm not sure if the drill team interests me, but I'd certainly be interested in learning to ride like your avatar.
