Don't think I'll be available tomorrow, I have an interview in the afternoon and I don't think dusty / muddy clothes would make a good 1st impression. :-)

Thanks for the offer,
depending on the outcome of the Interview, maybe Thursday or Friday morning, or Saturday (if it's still open?).

I'm a n00b and am slow, would hate to slow anyone down.

Hey Sergio - i just started riding with this group a month or so ago and can tell you that everyone i've met so far has been great! No one is in a hurry - even the super fast guys aren't rushing anyone - each rider goes at his/her own pace.

Everyone has been ready and willing to help out and make sure the whole pack sticks together, has a plan, and that no one is left behind! It really makes the ride more fun and relaxing!

Cheers!

I dunno where it is either.......
Joel put this list together about 50 pages ago

the only thing I'm pretty sure of right now is they are doing Baja,
& I will do Gorman on at least some of that weekend, whether any LAweekend riders join me or not

Angeles National Forest area east of Castaic Lake. South and southwest of Lake Hughes. Fun ride.

Who is up for what?

TwoWheels - are you going to Cajon regardless?
Sounds like it might make sense to hit this before it closes. I should be able to make it on Thurs, Fri, or Sat. Weather looks like its going to be pretty hot.
Looks like this could be fun.

I'm thinking about Gorman, but a long ride up there and back in one day and a ride on the trail. That would be a hell of a long ride up. That would test me and the bike on the freeway.

I can't stay overnight because of the dog. No one to take care of him.


Anyone else ride a 250cc bike up the Grapevine?

qwiksy, we could figure out a way to trailer you up....
Gorman has lots of different types of riding, might be a good place for some practice
