RideApart Community Guidelines and Standards

Mar 21, 2019 at 10:40am

Welcome to RideApart!

What is the RideApart Community?

At RideApart, we pride ourselves on creating an inclusive, welcoming, fun-loving community based on the following tenets:

Our goal is to build a place in our little corner of the internet where anyone who is passionate about riding—from the greenest greenhorn to the crustiest, bitter old vet—can roll up to learn, swap stories, ask for or give advice, and basically help enrich other riders’ lives. Think of it as an extremely cool bike shop that works on all makes and models, welcomes everybody, has some comfy furniture, some knowledgeable techs, a well-stocked fridge, and a handful of characters whose presence makes everything a little more, well, colorful. So, if you like bikes and you want to hang out with some cool bike people, you’ve come to the right place.

Sounds great! How do I become a member?

You just show up! Subscribe to our newsletter, comment on our articles, join in the conversations on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Do one or all of those things and you’re in. Doesn’t matter what you ride, who you are, or the current status of your bike. New to riding? Welcome! Want to ride but haven’t yet? Join us! Used to ride but can’t anymore? Come ogle these new bikes and talk about the old days. It’s that easy, friends. Honestly, if you’re reading this you’re already a member of the RideApart community so come in, sit down, and let’s talk about bikes.

Are there any rules?

Just like any club, RideApart has a handful of expectations of its community members. I know that we as motorcyclists like to pride ourselves on our outsider status and like to see ourselves as rule breakers and iconoclasts thumbing our noses at square culture, but there are still some basic guidelines we have here to make this a welcoming place for all riders. This isn’t ‘Nam, Smokey. This is RideApart. There are rules. So, without further ado, here they are.

That's it! Simple, eh? Have fun, be cool, don't attack anyone, and remember we're all motorcycle nerds here. Welcome to the club, and tell us about your bike!
