Joel, have you considered starting a La Weekend ride thread in the RR section? I'm sure there are people that would enjoy your RRs, but don't venture into the West>LA Weekend thread. You could do it like you all did for DV: talk about ride in the thread in the regional forum, and have pix/RRs in the RR forum.
Just a thought.
I'll slack you off, you fuzzy little foreigner. I'll fill your bagpipes with Wheatena!
