looking down at a small community below........it was a very clear day


and the sky was blue and cloudless


we got to about 5k feet and a couple of thousand more to go



even on the trail, there's traffic


not long after we started moving....i saw mike pinned between his bike and the bush ....good thing he was ok and no carnage..



actually the trail turned sandy and if you're slow, it will eat you

and here's tom....


in no time he's moving again



until at this point...... and after picking up a shady spot...





we took a lot of breaks on this ride




gary trying to plug the hole where side mirror used to be with his finger..




gary, don't forget to get a turn signal too when you're at bert's

I am sorry I had to be elsewhere.

BTW...it may be closed or at least look a bit different. I woke up to the news saying there was a fire up there.

I believe hes referring to Rich Olivers Mystery Camp. Two days of pure fun (and pain)!!!

A similar school is American Supercamp coming to So Cal this November!

Highly recommend either or both. Some of the most fun I've had on two wheels!!!!!

PS. hey NW, Do you know the tree right after the big turn (near the house) when going in reverse? There were 3 of us side by side into that turn, all sliding, problem was I was on the outside and got 'pushed' into the tree! Thank goodness for hay bales!! Good times....good times!!! Glad you had fun! you interested in American Supercamp?

Good times

Had a blast riding with you FF's.
It was nice to meet all of you.
Great ride report and pics.
Thanks for not mentioning my accidental trip to SnowCrest as you guys were enjoying burgers at NR. I had a 50/50 chance that left was the correct way to turn from Angeles Crest, LOL I was wrong .
Daaaamn it got cold up there.

I look forward to the next time.

I have a couple of "napping bike" shots- H8chains, I need you to post em for me.

It looks like the area we were riding is is currently on fire.
Hopefully none of you live near where the fire is burning.

Woody
