Hello, I'm an amateur rider and I'm hoping to either join a group or someone on the weekends to go out riding. I really want to get into snowmobiling this winter and also better my riding skills. Hit me up with a PM if you're in Bozeman or the surrounding areas. Thanks!!

Well, I'm an experienced amateur, meaning I generally know what's stupid and don't do it – the rest I improvise. I'd like to head that way at least a couple times this season. Cooke City and Top of the World are a little closer, but so far I've just been heading down with another friend riding an Indy SKS, which is fairly limiting. I hear Buck Creek has some good riding; if you're interested, let me know what your schedule is like and maybe we can work something out.

Aside from this coming weekend, I'm usually free every Saturday and Sunday. I can aslo get time off during the week I just need to plan it in advance. I think Buck Creek would be a lot of fun. I'm also down for going to Cooke city but a little later, perhaps around February if you're up to it around that time. You're the first person one to message me back, thanks for the reply!!

Yeah, I put out a similar thread last season and didn't get much. I think most people with a regular riding group are leery of inviting random people, ya never know whatcha gonna get. I used to just go up by myself – I didn't wander very far, but even so, it just seemed more risky than it was worth and not as much fun.

Anyway, I work out of state a week or two per month. Other than that, my schedule is pretty open. Saturdays are usually the best day for me, but I'm pretty flexible if I'm in town.

I roll through the Bozone several times a season. I'd like to tag along with whoever wants to ride. I have a pretty open schedule, especially after the first of the year. I try to stay a few nights in Cooke to make it worth while. Ride will be different this year for me as I switched from Doo to Poo. PM me if anyone is interested.

Might be able to work that in. I'm supposed to go to a Xmas party, but trying to convince my wife that I "HAVE" to get my new whip broke in so I can ride with the boyz. I'll know more early next week. I think KTM131rob may want to ride as well. Believe he is in the same boat as far as additional duties.

Unfortunately, I can't do the 15th. The 22nd might be good, or maybe earlier that week. I've got to figure out when family is going to be in town, but otherwise I'm pretty open through New Years (and probably a week or two beyond). I don't mind riding with snowbikes. I haven't rode one, or rode with one, so not sure how much difference it makes, but as long as no one's too picky! I'll keep checking back here – I'm sure something will come together.

I’m in Livingston and am always looking for new people to ride with. We ride Cooke City, Tobacco Roots, West, all over. Primarily Saturday and/or Sunday. Hit me up.

Anything doing this weekend? Saturday might be a good day for me. I'm a little split on how much of an effort I want to make because I haven't had my sled out yet and I'm making some clutching/gearing changes, so I'm going to need to spend some time under the hood. I might just take it up above Red Lodge to get a feel of where I'm at, but thought I'd see if/where anyone else is riding. Looking forward, I'm hoping to have everything sorted in the next week or so and ready for a full-up ride the following weekend.

How’d your riding partner search go? I’m headed to BZN soon.

I rode with @Go890 last year; good guy, and it was a fun ride, but I haven't heard from him recently. I have a friend I thought I'd be riding with this season, but his wife is due and he's talking like he won't be riding at all. So I'm digging for people to ride with again!
