Do any of your campus's' have a motorcycle club? I've been thinking about starting one to get some students into group rides / track days.

if you have the ambition and time then you should definately go for it! I've made a ton of good friends from the club and we have had some great times. There is a decent amount of paper work involved in getting the club started anr ecognized by the university but it is def. worth it!

Looks like a Club recognition form and a constitution. We'd be able to receive club funding, but I'm sure it's meager. I think I'll start a FB group and if it takes off we'll go club status.

if you want, i can probably send you our constitution and you could use that as a basis. FB groups don't really work that well, your best bet is to set up a recruiting table. Talk to your events management, at our campus they let us bring our bikes up on to the campus next to the buildings so we can have our recruiting table and be more noticed.

My school had one (i graduated last year)

it was kinda cool...every wednesday was stunt night and they also had group rides. They also put together a track day every year as well. Had their own dyno, shop guys, etc

Went to Iowa State University

Yep, we do. Last spring while I could still ride I organized a group ride that was pretty fun.

Just a bunch of us, ~10 guys.

I go to UNI and usually all the local riders will meet up at this gas station near campus. Most of the guys that do that are squids to the extreme, but it still is fun I'm not gonna lie.

I go to ISU, like owen, and I have a problem with the ISU club. I dont know if they show up outta the darkness or something, but all the pics they put on their facebook group are all pics of kids in motocross gear and 98 CBRs... I have been too sketched out to attend a stunt night or a group ride. Maybe Ill try it this year... but probably not.

oohhh... I've actually been thinking about creating a motorcycle club on campus. However, I'm already the president of my fraternity and have a lot on my plate. If I can't graduate within 4 years due to the CA state's budget constraints, I think I'll pursue it after my term is done. Here at SDSU you pretty much need to draft up a proposal and by-laws at the very least. One would also need a faculty member to sponsor the club. It is kind of a long process but if you're goal-oriented and somewhat business-minded it shouldn't be a problem. I say, (in honor of our pot-smoking governor Arnold Schwarzenegger) DO IT NOWWW!!!
