Great ride everyone.
A bike that comes home undamaged is a GOOD DAY
A person that comes home in one piece is a GREAT DAY
Nice meeting everyone.
Lets keep the rides going.....
Mt. Palomar anyone???

Here are some pics

Beautiful pics, Sammy! You know, Angeles is actually a very pretty place if you stop and look at it. Too bad you guys were going too fast to see it on the move!

Nice to ride with everyone. Glitches aside, everyone made it home in the same condition as they left. TuonoJohn, you want to set up something? I don't know many roads other than Angeles and Muholland.

Man, I would really love to go... but track on Friday and 125 miles today... I am sore in places that I didn't even know you can be sore in! My hands are done for a week, at least. It went completely numb today during the last leg of the ride on that treacherous downhill route.

If anything, I am going to cage it tomorrow in the Stuttgart-mobile.

Here's my excuse from Friday (and yes, that is me):

Be careful if you go Angeles tomorrow. Sundays are full of squids, soccer moms in vans, trucks, and chippies. Beautiful as it is... maybe we can all go get Futuras and cruise on Sundays.

While you guys were speeding through the Canyon I was busy taking in the sites....Thats the reason I was so slow!!! :spankie:

A big thanks to all of you guys for the helping with the "Battery" incident. I still blame Jthomas for jinxing me in the first place. :whiner:

Great roads, fun rides, and three things for certain:
(1) I will now do the wiring mod to keep a nice steady flow of juice for my bird.
(2) Next week should be a fun ride even though I am not sure where we will be yet. Looking forward to it.
(3) I will get faster... one day.

Letting others dictate your pace is the worse way to enjoy your saturday or sunday... Glad you came out okay

ahhhh......Palomar.....up till last year i was a SD resident.....there for 30years.....was a regular on the south and east grades, going into borrego...all over the backcountry....and east county....those were the days.....hasnt been good for a long time...not since all the yahoos started coming down from OC and LA...they fucked up Angeles Crest and now Palomar.....eh well......the LA cancer was long overdue....me? im in gods country for twisties....idaho/montana....just like it used to be back in the day in socal/sd county before the grommets.....today i ride quite possibly some of the highest quality twisties in the confederacy....minus the cops, squids and socal cowboys......the more i read about SD/Socal the happier i am that i left it.....was kinda sad....but the more i read, the less i miss Kalifornia.

Wow... such venom and hatred from a fellow biker. You don't even know us and how we ride yet but you already have the speech prepared. In your collective of "WE", i.e. the "LA Cancer", spreading, was there room for some allowances that there's some of us that don't like the squidly behavior either? I know TuonoJohn and myself aim to get away from that as much as we can. We are all older (30s and up) professionals who just like the ride.

Enjoy your Confederacy roads. Rest assured that this Angeleno will never go to Idaho/Montana to bother you.

oh.....i wouldnt say venom/hatred.....more like disappointment/sadness.


You don't even know us and how we ride yet but you already have the speech prepared.


the speech is/was a work in progress, formulated from many years of seeing "my" local speed spots get harrassed, overcrowded, pimpnhoed and diminished....however they are public roads....


In your collective of "WE", i.e. the "LA Cancer", spreading, was there room for some allowances that there's some of us that don't like the squidly behavior either?

no, i left...its all yours. :)




Enjoy your Confederacy roads.

thanks, i do.


Rest assured that this Angeleno will never go to Idaho/Montana to bother you.

thanks.....heh....im the (Kalifornia) "Cancer" here.....guess we have that in common. :)

Well...as long as you don't double plank it, I suppose that's pretty cool.

I have been snowboarding for 18 years...I love boarding, but don't think I ever want to live where it snows again!!!
