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.
2009 january ride:
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.
some truck their small bikes (skipped breakfast) and meet us in carrizo
somewhere on pozo rd
water at the beginning of hi-mountain road
the easy section of hi-mountain road

In for Breakfast in Ojai...
Sorry I will mis this one, :cry but I'm goin to Mexico.:evil :freaky
In for breakfast. Hopefully Spabrkr will be coming along too.
Big bike. Xr650l with a taller gearing and mt90 tires check. A tall shield for the road check. Warm riding gear check. Time off from work? No check. I have to work Saturdays. Have fun you lucky bastards. Joel. I see your creeping back onto the saddle. Welcome back brother. Ben
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
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!
perfect ride for the Tiger....:freaky
:nod you're right dh, thanks...:thumb ! this is right in your alley and i'll buy the first pitcher if you show up!...:beer
on the way to ojai, we meet at the gas station at the northwest corner of harvard and hw150 at 8am....opposite corner where the pin is shown.
with the strom?
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
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
