Big Bikes to Carrizo Plain Jan 16th
 
it's time to get the big bikes out and enjoy the scenic and mild ride to CARRIZO AND POZO...:clap estimated round trip from my house is 380 miles, but really depends where you're starting from.

perfect for nOObs, new gs/lc8 owners, and pretty much for everyone who's looking for a nice friendly ride. medium bikes like 600 and up with tall gears will do just fine. small bikes, you need to trailer them to carrizo.

EDITED 01-08-09: the plan is meet in ojai for breakfast @ 9am. and based on the # of riders on the IN list, we can determine which restaurant to make the reservation. those coming from los angeles will meet at the gas station at the roxford exit off the 5. ventu, camarillo and santa clarita riders can meet us at the CORNER GAS STATION in santa paula on hw150 (OJAI RD) @ hw126.

after breakfast, we ride via hw33 (twisty pavement) to maricopa, get gas and ride into carrizo plain (easy dirt).

then head to pozo (easy dirt fire roads) for lunch. in the afternoon, we'll take hi mountain rd (some sections were rocky and water crossing) to lopez lake. those who prefer another route home, can turn around and back track or take the pavement to arroyo grande to hw101.

last year others almost froze themselves to death on the way home...:vardy

heated grips and vest are great to have!...:thumb
warm clothing and thick gloves maybe ok.

richard cabesa 01-04-2010 07:08 PM

Joel!

Sounds like fun but I'll have to play it by ear.

Also, yur gettin' people lost in you first post. Hwy 33 doesn't cross the 126 in Santa Pauls. I think you mean Hwy 150 & 126

I'll keep my eye on the thread

Windrat 01-04-2010 07:41 PM

I'm a little in... breakfast the 33 and a carriso loop sound like fun
I was just out in carriso the hills are green it was very nice
the santa barbara pistachio company has had gas it's on the 33
before the 166 no need to go to maricopa but I'm not leading so go
where ever it works best
It's been cold up on the 33 if it rains watch for ice on the back side
good to see you out on the bike Joel

The P.C. only has 87 octane though. Great pit stop and restrooms though!

The Strom is a perfect bike for this ride...there are some dirt sections that if wet can be an issue...take it slow and steady and it will be fine....plus the bike looks better with some scratches....:clap

Windrat 01-04-2010 08:53 PM

The 690 likes the high octane but maricopa is out of the way for me
coming from ventura.
Mike some day we'll ride some of what's around my back yard
the 690 is a good bike for most of it. but that's another ride
