    rideNAMA.com is a place for organizations and individuals from every area of the US and Canada to post upcoming motorcycle-related events. rideNAMA.com strives to have the most comprehensive catalog of upcoming motorcycle events including but not limited to shows, expos, biker nights, poker runs, rides, benefits, rallies, swaps, cookouts, and festivals.

     

    Be notified of Events in your area or of personal interest by creating an Event Agent.

     

    Once a member, you may add events of your own, and RSVP to events that other users have posted. Once you have RSVP'd, the event will show up on your Calendar in order to help you keep track of the events you are planning to attend. 

     

    Events can be searched by name, category, date, and location.

     

    If you have any questions about the information contained in an event posting or about creating an event, please refer to our Help section on Events

     

    NAMA urges its users to verify any information in an event posting with the event organizer, whose information is often given within the posting. NAMA is not responsible for misinformation.

    • Think before you click. Never click suspicious links — even if they come from a friend or a company you know. This includes links sent on rideNAMA (ex: in a chat or post) and links sent in emails. If one of your friends clicks on spam by accident, that link might be sent to all of their rideNAMA friends. Remember to never re-enter your rideNAMA password or download something (ex: a .exe file) if you aren’t sure what it is. If you're asked to re-enter your password on rideNAMA (ex: you're making changes to your account settings) check to make sure the address of the page still has rideNAMA.com/ in the URL.

    • If you don’t know what it is, don’t paste it into your internet address bar. Pasting unfamiliar text into your address bar could result in events and pages being created from your account or other spammy actions.

    • Pick a unique, strong password. Use combinations of at least six letters, numbers and punctuation marks; don’t use words that can be found in the dictionary. When in doubt, change your password. You can reset your password by going to your Settings page, located in the menu at the top of every page.

    • Never give out your username or password. Never share your login credentials (ex: email address and password) for any reason. Individuals, pages or groups that ask for your login information in exchange for discounted goods shouldn’t be trusted. These types of deals are carried out by cybercriminals and are in violation of rideNAMA's payment terms.

    • Log in at www.rideNAMA.com. Make sure you check the page's URL (web address) before you enter your login information. When in doubt, you can always type "rideNAMA.com" into your browser to get back to the real site.

    • Update your browser (ex: Internet Explorer). Current versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer have built in security protection, like warning you if you navigate to a suspected phishing site. rideNAMA supports:

    A Road is a scenic, fun, or otherwise interesting route for motorcyclists. At rideNAMA.com, we encourage members to Add New Roads so that other riders can find new rides in their area. The Roads feature is also useful when planning a trip to an unfamiliar area.

     

    Use our Wishlist feature for keeping track of Roads you are interested in.

     

    You can search for a Road by Location.

     

    Within a listing for a Road, you may find a description of the Road as well as the location, price, road surface, and difficulty. The listing may also specify resources along the route such as gas stations, lodging, and restaurants.

     

    You can also find a Google Map of the exact route of the Road, given that the user who added the Road has included it.

     

    For more information about Roads, or for help adding a new road yourself (including how to create a map of the route), see our Help Section on the Roads feature.

    A Wishlist can be created in order to keep track of Roads that you would like to ride.

     

    Multiple Wishlists can be created, managed, and shared with other members.

    In order to define the exact route/location of a Road/Destination for which you are making a listing, you first need to go to Google Maps and create the map. Google Maps will generate an HTML code which can be copied into your listing on rideNAMA.com. This will create an interactive map of the Road you are adding.

     

    Here's how to make and add the map to your posting.

     

    Step-by-step Instructions for mapping a Road for your listing:

     

    1) Start by entering the start and end location of the Road/Destination in the "Get Directions" fields on Google Maps. If there is no address associated with the beginning or end, simply input a 'dummy' start and end location (Fig. 1). From here, you can drag the markers so that they are at the two ends of the route. You can also drag mid-sections of the route so that they exactly trace the route of the Road (Fig. 2).

     

    2) Once you are satisfied with the Google Map, click the icon that looks like a chain link and copy the HTML code (Fig. 3.)

     

    3) On rideNAMA.com, click the Overview Tab [Overview] tab while in the editor for the Road/Destiantion you are trying to map. Then, click the HTML icon [HTML] icon. A window will appear. Paste the HTML code from Google Maps (from step 2) into the window and click Update. (Fig. 4) *Note: If you are adding a New Road/Destination, you must first submit the form which asks for the Road's Title, description, etc... and then you will have access to the Overview Tab tab. If you have already added the Road, you can view the listing and click to access the Overview Tab tab.

     

    4) Click [Save Overview].

     

    Now when the listing for this Road/Destination is viewed, the exact route/location will appear on an interactive Google Map.

     

    If you are still having trouble, please email Roadster@rideNAMA.com with your issue.

    There are many ways to communicate with other users, including two types of live chatting. You must be logged in as a member in order to use either method of chatting.

    chattoolbar

     

    Chat:

    A listing for a Road is meant to be a comprehensive description of a given route that is of interest to motorcyclists. We encourage users of rideNAMA.com to contribute their own Roads but ask that they provide as many details as possible when they create the listing for the Road. Please see our Help Section on adding a Road for assistance.

     

    A complete Road listing will contain information about the route's difficulty, road surface, seasonal closings, cost, as well as directions to the Road and a Google Map of the exact route. Photos and videos of the Road may also be found in the Road listing.

     

    User reviews of the Road may also be helpful in planning a trip to a new area. Roads may also be compared using the Compare feature on rideNAMA.com.

    The North American Motorcycle Alliance (NAMA) Contact Us

     

     

    NAMA is an organization that is dedicated to promoting the Biker, Motorcyclist, and Motorcycle Enthusiast's experience and life style, utilizing its website RideNAMA.com as a vehicle for information on where, when and what to ride. The website is configured as a social network so that motorcycle riders can continue old relationships and foster new ones with like-minded people.

     

    Although it is likely that people will come together in romantic way as a result of this site, that is not the intent of this Alliance. RideNAMA.com is not a dating website! We will leave the drama and heartache of match making to other websites, some of which advertise here.

     

    NAMA, being an alliance of the different groups found in the motorcycling world, allows for the free exchange of information between individuals. With this site you can search for motorcycle events with one of the most powerful event search engines anywhere. We are committed to outnumbering any other site with regard to the amount of information for all types of events so that it easier for you to plan your day, weekend, week, month, or season. Our event platform is so powerful that is will continue to search even when you not logged in. With our Event Agents, you can set up multiple search criteria that will continue to monitor the events and notify you by email when a new one is posted.

     

    It does not matter what type of bike you ride, if you ride on the front seat or the back, whether your ride style is touring, cruiser, cafe, dual sport, sport or vintage. Everyone has something to contribute. RideNAMA.com lets you list those places that are Biker Friendly or Motorcycle Friendly. It is our motto to "Ride Where Your Welcome." Don't put up with attitude when you're on the road. It is all about the ride and destination and with the right information provided by others, your experience can be that much better.

     

    As we get the Alliance kicked off, we are interested in your opinions and we definitely want to hear about the areas you ride or visit: The good, the bad, and the "ugly". Comment on the places others have posted to help enrich the experience. Let us know what event(s) are important to you and the ones that you enjoy the best. Tell us and others where to ride and at what time of the year to ride. Let us know about the different equipment, supplies, or gear that you use and how it performs.

     

    And of course this being an alliance of different groups with a common interest, don't forget to socialize. Chat with others and make friends. Schedule rides through the event manager that others in your area can participant in. It does not have to be a formal event or ride, it can be small and personal or you can include as many that want to participate. Pick a time and place, post it on the event calendar, and you decide who can view it; friends only, members only, or the public.

     

    The North American Motorcycle Alliance encompasses both the United States of America and our friends to the north in Canada. Both countries have unlimited places to ride and enjoy this life style. If you have not signed up, then what's stopping you from becoming a member and growing with the Alliance?

    We have discovered a problem where your logo may disappear during the process of Creating An Event

     

    This issue will affect you only under the following conditions:

     

    When creating an Event, if you forget to fill in a required field (e.g. forgot to select a Start/End Time) or make an invalid entry into one of the fields, you will be asked to correct your submission. An Error Message error message will appear at the top of the page. If you had already selected a file to upload as the Event Logo before clicking Save Changes and then got an error message, the Event Logo will be erased. Therefore, you will need to re-select the image file you would like to use for your Event Logo, correct the error, and then click Save Changes to create the event. Every time you attempt to submit an Event with an error in one of the fields, the Event Logo will have to be re-selected. 

     

    If you create the event and forgot to re-select the Event Logo, you can always go back and edit the Event Details in order to add the Event Logo.

    addressFAQ


    Suggestions when Creating an Event:

    Choose your country/city/state from the dropdown boxes; do not type in a country/city/state which is not already present in the dropdown box. If your country/city/state is not present in the dropdown box, choose the city which is closest to yours, or include this information in the Event Details. 

     

    This is the address of the Event Location. If the address is valid, and the correct Country, State, and City is entered along with it, a Google Map of the event will automatically be available when viewing the event. Also, the zip code will automatically be filled in.

    Once again, that's the:

    -Street Address

    -Country

    -State

    -City

    -Zip Code (auto-fill)

    If these are entered so that Google Maps can recognize the address, a map will automatically be generated and available in the event posting.


    If the address is not recognized by Google, the map may not display the exact location of the event. (Be careful, this may lead to confusion). 


    If there is no exact address associated with the event, enter the information you know. Don't forget to include enough information about the location in the Event Description so that users can find your event.

    You will need to have the logo saved on your computer as either a .jpg, .png, or .gif file. When creating the Event, click Choose File and select the image file you would like to use for the Even Logo from your computer.

    "People must be invited to RSVP to this event":

    If this box is checked, people can view the event (if you make it searchable) but will not be able to Attend unless invited.


    "Invited guests may invite other people as well":

    If this is unchecked, people that you invite will not be able to extend an invitation to anyone else.

    This will determine who can view the event. Only members who you allow to view the event will be able to see the event listing in their search results. 


    Comment Privacy:

    This will determine who can comment within your event posting.
