I've got four days off starting Thursday!!! Of course traffic will be a bitch and cops will be out in force, but the weather is supposed to be awesome. Who is riding and where? I don't think I can make is as far south as San Diego, but anywhere in Orange/LA/Ventura and I'm in!

I'm in the gay area for the week...I mean the bay area. Might be around for a Sunday ride...not too sure yet.

I'll probably do some malibu canyons and crest rides during the long holiday weekend... either of those appeal to you? Who else is up?

I think the local mountains might be nice. I'd like to try the Crest on Friday in a hopes that the man might give us a break since it isn't the weekend yet. I'll probably go up the back side (15/138/2), to try and avoid them completely. In order to drag a few friends along, I'll probably meet them at the 76 station at 138/15 at 9:00 although I'd rather it were 8:00.

Should be really nice.

From what I've heard there was a head-on collision between a Duc and a Harley last weekend on Ortega, both riders died, CHP will be all over that place this weekend.

Major bummer. I was just on Ortega yesterday. Do you know which bike went wide?

My buddy and I are going up to Idyllwild tomorrow. ACH is just too far for me.

Apparently it was one of the guys from a local Duc dealership (not sure which one), I got the story second hand so, I'm not sure who went wide in this case.

I'm off to Idyllwild tomorrow with another buddy. 8:30am at the Chevron on Antonio and Oso. I'll be on my silver Factory. If you've never been, you're in for a treat.

Well, its 120 miles from Oxnard to the 138/15... I wonder how traffic will be tomorrow morning. I would guess most people have the day off, but then again, it is the busiest shopping day of the year and most stores here open about 0500. You can have that crap, bunch of wild-eyed masochists out shopping tomorrow!
I think I'm asking for trouble riding that far to start a ride... I guess I did say anywhere in the OC or LA, maybe that was the excitement talking.
I hit Mulholland today and it was empty. The local Monster club was in force at the Rock Store along with about a dozen other bikes, even though it was closed.
Unless somebody says they're going up the "frontside" of ACH (Starbucks at the 2/210 or other meeting place). I'll be at the "Store" again tomorrow around 0900-0930 to ride the twisties down to Malibu. I'll be on the silver Falco with Galfer wave rotors.
I'm totally up for plans on Sat and Sunday also.

Looks like I missed that last post. I was at the Rock Store but y'all weren't. Oh well. Great ride anyways all the way down to Malibu. I didn't see a cop all day and the roads up there were empty... like it should be.

I hope the ACH treated y'all good today. I'm still up for tomorrow or Sunday. Somebody say the word.

RZRob

I ended up riding my mountain bike in the backwoods just off Angeles Crest (Arroyo Seco (Ken Burton Trail)). It was intense. About 16 miles, half was a pretty good uphill and the other was killer single track. Crossed streams and beautiful scenery. Not a sole would go way back there.

Almost the whole time though, I was hearing sportbikes heading up the crest. Heard a few sirens too.

I hope to go to ACH or RS on Sunday early if possible.

You want to drag race, just go to any abandoned Industrial complex by City of Industry or El Monte. You get the entire street free and clear. We did that one time and filmed ourselves doing wheelies back in my squidly days. It was pretty fun.

Beau1K
11-29-2005, 02:15 AM

How's your buddy enjoying the Triumph? You know anyone who wants a yellow Mille R?

Beau1K
11-29-2005, 03:05 AM
He loves it! Fucking sweet bike. A little hiccup when we got it back home. After he killed the bike he couldn't get it started again for like 2 minutes...pretty strange. But it did start and he was able to get it into it's parking spot. Any idea why that might be? I was thinking he had it in gear and the kickstanad was down or something like that. We tried a few different things and it wouldn't turn over. After 2+ minutes of letting it marinate it started.

lawman800
11-29-2005, 03:09 AM
Check the battery connections. The connectors might have some buildup which can cause the current to not flow through. Clean it with something and see if you can get a solid connection. Wai charged the bike to full 100% last week just for you guys.

You got anyone who wants a MilleR?

Beau1K
11-29-2005, 03:14 AM
Maybe...it was cranking no problem...just not turning over for a while.

I'll see what I can do...you never know...why don't you post it up on the bikes for sale that way I can show it to whomever might be interested.

Post a bunch of pics and detail the extras you got on there.

PM me when it's up there.

Maybe for a bit. Can't keep both my MilleR and the Gix1k because I am also going to buy a SV650 to race in the LTWS series. I want to keep the MilleR but look at how gorgeous this bike is. My baby girl racer even likes sitting on it better. She never sat still on the MilleR!

I am addicted for sure now. Did you watch that MotoGP clip that everyone's posting on this forum under cool vid? Gadzooks! I can only imagine since what I did was only a fraction of what they do and it was amazing!
