100 -130 miles is what to expect from door to door.
there are nOObs and ex-racers but everyone has a blast and we wait for the not so fast and help fix flats and busted side covers.
lunch is generally at Newcomb's or Hidden Springs Cafe( i prefer the latter ) and the rides can be over by 1PM to as late as 5PM and start at 7AM or 8AM.
check this thread for upcoming rides!
this friday night is the FULL MOON RIDE.

GREAT!
I don't think i'll get my bike back from Eric's before Sunday, but a full moon ride sounds awesome. I Better get a heavier-duty light setup...seems my TE610 came stock with a Fischer Price flashlight.

Thanks for the heads-up! You'll be seeing my ugly mug soon enough!

Full moon rides happen once a month (hence, FULL MOON). This is perfect scheduling as it gives your liver time to heal

My baby is getting her 600 mi service this weekend - I am FINALLY ready to open'er up and explore!!

What's standard procedure for the Sat Sun rides? Pack a lunch?
Any suggestions for a first time tagalong?

Ride planning usually consists of:
  1. Where are we going?
  2. Where are we eating?
Check this forum...there is generally a ride every weekend...locally and a bit farther out. Brent (Riceless950) has some great rides out his way too.

I dion't think we've had a Husky pilot in the group yet. Them TE's are nice bikes! Be prepared to be surrounded by orange

I might have to join you guys one of these mornings if I can get these 63 yr old bones moving that early. Been in Burbank since 1952 and have been all over these hills.

Just bought a 2001 DR650 (needs tires) after reading all these stories about your local rides.

`Chains, you are my hero with the camera. I usually take several dozen and I'm guilty of almost crashing trying to get that perfect shot. I see you have the tecnique down pat.

Now to get motavited and find some boots.......

Thanks Mike, our rides are mixed nOObs and advanced. There are always challenging off shoots and detours on our rides where the expert riders can have fun while the nOObs ride conservatively on the fire roads.

The best part of our rides, we get to eat and drink after or halfway on our ride.

The helicopter, is that at our disposal...

I'm making it no matter what

Coming down to the wire and virtually none of the work I was doing before KM is complete except removing the ABS and running new brake lines, and cutting off and unbolting worthless piece after worthless piece. Damn kids take too much time No matter what I will be there, even if it means putting all of my old shit back on.....well those pieces that didn't meet Mr Sawzall

Why wait for the weekend when you can ride tomorrow night?

I know, you're worried about the flashback....Mike, if you don't confront your fear, it will never leave you......
