saturday morning

satuday morning meeting place is at the shell on lyons. it was on the waypoints and gps route that i sent.

here i am, waiting for over 40 minutes, and no one showed up other than dunerat. that shows dr knows how to use his gps.....

the pic shows chevron, though the shell station is just next door......



thanks to ersin for calling me after he received my text that they are at the wrong shell station...
my fault, i didn't realize the power of that big billboard will draw everyone's attention.






rode up on the 5 to the 126 to santa paula. from there we took the scenic 150 to ojai. though we had a little delay



kids, don't try this at home. taking pictures in the curve and over the shoulder are for professionals only







parking lot of the emporium cafe...brisk business for them that saturday morning..we made it to the restaurant on time...

ojai emporium cafe, the restaurant is off main street but very popular among locals and returning customers, that we are, 3 years in 4.

before we get seated, the 1st group was done eating. turned out to be a good move, the kitchen was freed up for the rest of us.

someone likes to moose around...













we were all done eating in no time, the pre-ordered breakfast worked out well and the restaurant staff did an excellent job getting us on the road on time.



there's duy, very rare we see him.

we divided the remaining riders into 2 groups. spafxer lead the 2nd group, while chris was in charge of the 3rd group.

riding on hw33 through the tunnels



many of us were on big bikes, and moving on a good pace. jim had to slow down a few times to give the thumpers to catch up, however they proved to be fast too....easy for them to do since we stayed within the posted speed limits....











lots of twisties, can only post the big sweepers, but plenty of the tight ones to challenge everyone



there are the real "roadies"



heading towards maricopa
