NEW FEATURE: GETAWAYS - 3 SIMPLE STEPS TO YOUR GROUP RIDE

Published by RISER at December 11, 2017 in Articles

Getawaysblogoverview

Every time we make appointments with friends to go for a ride, countless messages are sent back and forth, or groups of people are set up on social media or messenger services to facilitate communication. Many of you have written to us describing that they know exactly the same situation. So that’s why we thought:

what if all this was possible on the same platform, where we also track our trips, network with our friends and discover new routes?

With the new GETAWAY feature, it is now possible to organise trips directly within the RISER app and in just a few steps: you can create a getaway and choose different categories depending on what you want to do – whether it's a short ride for a coffee after work, a longer trip on the weekend or even a multi-day tour, you can show your friends what to expect straightaway within the getaway, when they come along.

The same goes for the riding style: has it ever happened to you that you have agreed to go on a trip with friends, but then you have noticed that the style of riding doesn't quite correspond to what you expected – or what you just wanted to do? You can specify the riding style when you create a getaway and have the choice between cruising, dynamic touring and a sporty riding style.

Set a meeting point and start time on your getaways so that everyone who joins the trip knows right away. You can also give a title to your trips and choose a suitable picture for the getaway. And the most important thing comes at the end:

all friends you want to have with you on the trip can be added by invitation! If a friend is not yet using RISER, he or she will need to create an account so that they can be added (in the future, it will also be possible to send invitations directly to friends who have not yet installed RISER – we are working on it).

The current version of the getaways is a first version of this brand-new feature – we're still working on improvements and optimizing the function; some things will be released soon and make the getaway function even more practical for you. If you can think of anything we should consider, please send us feedback by email to info@riserapp.com! Please don't forget: we do our best, but we are still a small team, so be patient if sometimes something doesn't work as well as it should – as you already know, we always try to fix bugs as soon as possible and include your wishes in the app’s development!

Rate and review RISER on the App Store and on social media and let us know if there is anything we can do for you!

Have fun trying out the new feature!
Your RISER team

CRUISIN’ AROUND AUSTRALIA: FROM WOLLONGONG TO MELBOURNE

Published by MOGI at July 20, 2018 in Articles
Heading from Wollongong, down the Princess Highway, all the way to Eden. Sounds like a long way but, there are heaps of stops on the way. It could take 8 to 12 hours to do it, if you really wanted to. But for me, I’ll cruise, I didn’t need to stop until Batemans Bay for fuel, already been there so I pushed on, through to Bega and a stop at the Yellow Peach Dam Rest Area, was awesome...

THE COUNTRY-, BLUES & WHISKEY MOTORCYCLE TOUR. GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.2

Published by GINA DREWES at July 13, 2018 in Articles
I don't listen to country, rarely blues - and whiskey is not necessarily the drink of my choice. But how could I have said no to a route that has the same title and leads through the country where my Harley was born! Although I had not yet had the urge to explore America, this motorcycle route through the southern states aroused my curiosity.

A 3-DAY TRIP ON THE NORTH COAST 500 IN THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS

Published by JOHN ADAM at July 05, 2018 in Articles
For anyone who doesn’t know, the North Coast 500 is a circular route circumnavigating mostly coastal roads around the northern tip of the Scottish Highlands. It is generally accepted that the start point is Inverness, and from there what awaits you is just over 800 kilometers of sweeping bends, single track back whacks and what is arguably the most incredible scenery in the UK...

In the past, I've had the opportunity to be part of the guide team on a trip several times. But this time it happened rather by accident: Damien, the ride host had broken his wrist the week before on the track, and asked me if I could cover for him.

A sunny day. The last few kilometers accompanied by our guides through Myanmar. The first limestone cliffs appear. From Kawkareik, a well-paved road meanders over the Tenasserim ridge. For the first time since leaving Western Turkey, the tires are clinging to undamaged and grippy asphalt. After 170km Mae Sot is reached, the border town to Thailand: from poverty to wealth.

THE WEISSBORN STORY EPISODE 7 – THE CROSSING OF MYANMAR

Published by RISER at February 26, 2018 in Articles
In southern Nepal, there is only one single highway heading east. We approach the Indian border and dive into the crowd again. We drive along the road; the sunset in the back, left and right the tea fields. The density of people is diminishing and we are passing through a village where a white person has never been seen before, at least according to the owner of the restaurant where we take our lunch...
