If you’ve decided that searching through online biker dating service is well, simply too impersonal, there are other options available. There are also a few advantages to starting your search in the real world instead of the virtual one. For starters, it’s a lot harder for someone to hide behind a screen name when you’re facing them. Also, since most biker meetings are arranged in a very public place, there is the added benefit of safety. If you feel uncomfortable, or your warning bells go off, there is usually a way to make a quick, but polite exit. Also, you get the added benefit of being outside, and have the potential to ride your motorcycle, which is always a good thing.
That being said, there are some disadvantages to meeting biker people through real world motorcycle groups. First, the selection and quantity might not be what you’re expecting. Let’s face it, your local watering hole or meeting venue doesn’t get as many people coming there as you would meet on the internet. Second, there is the cost of travel to the place of meeting, as well as the time off work, or away from your home. Depending on your schedule, making the time to meet a group of motorcycle riders you may or may not like face to face can be problematic. Another factor to consider is the weather. If it’s an outside event, such as a barbeque, things such as rain or other inclement weather can be a real damper on the festivities. However, with all the advantages and disadvantages to trying to find a companion in person, there are still quite a few possibilities worth mentioning. Here are just a few suggestions.
