Wee!!!

fun ride, on a small bike, i brought my SE in '11 & '12 (really only because i rode up there and back and didn't want to buzz the 525 down the freeway that far), not real big bike friendly....i'm a glutton for punishment. that's me on the hillclimb at the 9:30 mark.

I'm considering doing this. Would this be considered an expert ride? Hill climbs don't look that bad on the video.

Are you guys going early or spending the night in SLO?

I would say the "easy" routes are noob friendly (if you are on a sub-350lb bike) and the "hard" routes are intermediate friendly with a few optional hero sections. Bump each of those difficulty ratings up a notch (or two) if you're on a "big" bike. I personally wouldn't have much trouble riding a street bike through the easy routes, but this is my local stompin' grounds. If anybody is really struggling when sweep (me) comes through, I can either ride your scoot through (assuming it's just one obstacle/ short section) or redirect you to an easier route. There are two sweep riders for each route and both routes regularly cross, so if you decide the hard route is a bit much it shouldn't be too difficult to get back on the easy route. Watcha ridin?

Thanks for the input. I'm kind of sold on the ride now.

I'm riding a husaberg fe570.

The nice thing about organized events is that you're never really "solo." Pismo is about 15 minutes away.

One of the best riding and food. Not too often people can ride in private ranches.

As I am trying to talk my buddy with a tw200 into coming, how fast is this ride? He dosnt like how the tw rides over 50mph or at 50 for more than 10 minutes at a time. It gets very vib-ey
and dosnt like to ride that fast for too long.

yeah, pretty much lost hope to see them get opened again. it was our backyard. met a lot of nice people on the l.a. weekend rides.
Hey Joel, it's Russell (tall guy). Haven't seen any of the AdvRiders in awhile. Gave my clapped out KLR to my cousin in Utah. His driveway is on the Burr Trail. Sold my XRR to Rod Struiksma, who runs a children's orphanage in San Vicente, Baja. Got a great deal on a 97 XRL with low miles from a guy in Flagstaff.

A few months ago (same day Paul Walker got killed) I was riding down Los Feliz Blvd after a hike in Griffith Park going to Glendale (Walker and myself hometown weird irony). Was doing about 35 mph between parking lane and traffic (jammed). A girl threw open the door of her Hyundai without looking. The right foot peg caught the leading edge of the door. Levered me into a RTD bus stuck in traffic. My helmet caught the mirror of the bus and really slowed me and the bike down. Ended up landing on top of it with hardly a scratch. I call it a miracle.

Anyway, bike all bent up. Insurance company said it was my fault (figure that one out). Since I didn't get hurt none of the ambulance chasing lawyers were interested in working with me to see if I could get some cash for the damages. Getting ready to fix it when the car went out. So bought a car instead of fixing bike. Now moving out to Woodland Hills because I got a job in Westlake. Looks like sometime this summer I will have time and money to put the XRL back together (Needs some valve sleeves, tank, bars, and triple clamp). Then I'll try to meet up with you guys again and do some dual-sporting. Ride safe and watch out for those car doors.
