2013.12.31 new years eve ride

every year, the socal norton club do their new year's eve ride and meet on lake ave in pasadena

good thing i don't have to work that day and in town (most of my fellow riders went to baja). we'll i love motorcycles, especially the classics. where else to see them but in pasadena.

i got there before 9 am and the streets are already filled with them.

there could be about 300 bikes both old and new. admired lots of them and can't stop myself from taking some pics of the cool older bikes.

you don't see this moto morini anymore



the official club bike



more norts



one of my favorites



the modern version and still old tech...me like



lots of work done on that lil honda






seeing this and how he fired up that bike was worth getting up in the morning






future classic......

around 10 am, most bikes headed up to newcomb's ranch via angeles crest highway (2). fun twisty road!

the crest was in almost perfect shape except for the sand collecting at the center divider. no traffic except for a white porsche which is faster than most of us.....


just in time for late breakfast






sweet trans alp and the old air head too



nice



i fell in love again



let's get a close up



breakfast made simple 2-2-2






another beautiful socal day, yours truly and the hp2 are just happy to be out



have a great 2014 everyone....

6th annual carrizo/pozo ride

2013.01.18/19 - pozo frozo ride

well boys and girls great job, we did it, 6 years in a row! based on my last count, there were 27 of us! not a bad turnout, besides we don't want it get too big and having to break up group 2 into A and B...hahaha.

for many years, my trusty 2002 KTM 640E has never disappointed me, always taken me there and got me home. last time i rode it was in may of last year (grand canyon north rim rid). it sat in the garage patiently waiting for another big ride. wasn't really in any rush, but the pozo frozo motivated me to get on it. lots of major maintenance i have to do - overhauled the front forks, checked and repacked the wheel bearings, steering heads and swing arms, put fresh oil, bled the brake lines with magura blood; put new chain and sprockets, new batteries, adjusted the valves, put loctite 243 on many fasteners, re torqued critical bolts and nuts, checked the electriacl wirings and took the carb apart and cleaned.

yeah, countless of hours in the garage. it was fun and at the end....my 640 is ready to rock again!



here we are at santa paula meet up



on the 150 on our way to ojai



more bikes at ojai emporium



in the restaurant waiting for our food....and we had a complete cast of characteres...hahaha











with a breakfast like this...who would not come and join us


breakfast in ojai is part of the yearly tradition and help a little bit in the town's economy.

we have a big turnout and have to break into 5 groups. six of us got together to form the leisure intermediate group. we stop, bs a little, soak in the view and take pictures, then repeat.

after breakfast, we got on hw33 - fun highway with lots of twisties






took a short break at the ranger station before lockwood valley and switched to warm weather gear



finally we hit the first dirt road at quatal canyon. don't get fooled by this easy looking road, you will crash!



i'm liking the high viz helmet that i can see it from behind



ben



isaac and bill



couple of guys eroding the hill side






after running out of dirt, took one of the back roads



we caught up with the faster groups at maricopa



from another perspective










i can sense the 2B boys haven't forgiven me



ron and dain having rockstars



more later...
