We just kid him 'cause we love him
Our whole group stood on the side of the 5 not more than 15 minutes after he told us about his flat front tire on the freeway on a previous ride. Deja vu.

Saturday ride..

first off, Joel, congrats on your 1 year DS anniversary. I have only ridden with you twice, but your passion for motorcycling and the ADV community is very apparent. It has been a pleasure riding with you, and the others I've met on this site

This Sat, I'm thinking of doing a more GS like ride; Heading out to Carrizo for some dirt (probably Elkhorn Grade, then back on the 33 through the los padres forest and ojai. Or, heading up to SCD and Newcombs. Not sure yet, but I'm definately getting out this weekend! Anyone is welcome to join me...

Toby

Thanks for the heads up and the welcomes! Finally some company!!!! I won't have to be "only the lonely" on some forgotten mining road at 7pm wondering if the last two turns were a left and a right....or was that a right and a left?

and I Love the Hef on tap at Newcombs! woohoo!

I am riding an 08 Husky TE610, by the way! A true beast but i haven't had it above 5500 rpms!!! can't wait!

on another note...
Do you guys ever head to Hungry Valley? I made it out there once, on a Thursday, by myself, all alone and scared....that place is so fun and insane! I'd love to go back with someone who knows the trails - especially farther up that gold creek road...

Cheers!

bb, i love to do jawbone, randsburg, and cal city. i'm saving all the desert rides for the winter months....jan, feb, and march

we have to include lake el mirage, sand diego area, baja ca, johnson valley, and riceless backyard

the tt trails should be done before the rain, but let's make it outside the adv rides and limited only to a number of riders.....
