Great report and photos!
Medusa's is our favorite here in Cambria!
The Ridge Road is a great local ride - Search youtube for "xr650l california coast hills" for a fun video of the trail.

I rode up Saturday morning to meet the guys at Crab Flats by way of SR-330:


Joel making sure everyone is ready to go:


We ended up on a narrow trail off of 2N08 where we were stopped by a closed gate and had to turn around:


I nailed a mud hole at speed :lol::


NSFW and FYYFF (Joel and Erisin):


Sopascat (Cathy), Tom (?), and Aheadofu! (Jim) at Aztecas. Jim is savoring that Bud :lol: :


Fudgypup ready to roll:


NSFW and Slugdad (Bill) not quite ready ready to roll:


Ersin taking pix:


Bill going through the water crossing at Crab Creek. That shit was deep:


Eric doing the same. I've got a video:


Sunday, Slugdad and I left ahead of the others. Since we were heading to OC, we slabbed it down SR-18:


I remember going down a trail with Jim and found the trail head off of SR-18. Soon we were treated to a view of San Bernardino:


Turns out the trail is 2N40. It was loose and rocky in places and felt narrow. I was going way too slow up a hill and I lost the front tire in a rutt and dumped the KLR :( Bill has pix.

andy on his monster gsa


my kuya pat



soon, the night ride is officially on



ersin and i waiting for andy and dave






dave, andy and ersin



i was the only one riding a thumper



after cleghorn, we crossed hw138 to pilot truck trail. no more pictures since we need to get to camp before midnight.

we were starving, we made a quick stop at neo's (?); the pizza was awesome


we finally able to join the rest of the gang around 11:30, i think.









we were all tired, and went to bed, but one more shot before i put the camera to sleep

Joel honestly, you are the last person I would have thought would actually do secret rides. And rich, bailing on your own planned trip to Kennedy meadows because razr was going? Nice pics glad it was fun.

You are incorrect, Sean. Razr and I get along just fine. Read my post about school, the internet, and cell service needed for a conference call for that saturday, and every saturday thru sept. 8th.

I was trying to maintain tradition and not skip a year. My son was still expecting to go camping so I slapped together a local big bear ride where cell service is just about everywhere. BTW, I had 4G internet several miles east of camp and was able to complete my conference call.

Anyways, the KM ride looks like it was fun, as always. Wish I was there, but priorities come first.

No hard feelings. Just something I feel should be adressed. It's just lame that big rides need to be hidden because of what a few post on these boards. I was under the impression that most of the bullshit ends when people gather for a ride and meet in person, shake hands and shoot the shit and actually ride.Regardless of what gets typed up sometimes. FYI, ride Sunday, meet 15 and 138. 2 dr650s so far.
