it was cooler up there but not cold enough for a heavy jacket; i have to put on an outer shell to stay warm...you can see here artboy took off his fireman's jacket. you'll be fine with a medium or light jacket.

blue bikes dominated this ride



the pastaman didn't suck this time according to him....the truth... ....for bailing out early (especially for a bachelor)




there's only 1 big orange bike to kick us around......


following the Big Power Lines for our emf theraphy


waiting for everyone at the junction....


once finished with the headcount..we're on the move again

Compared to the other guy, you're dressed to bounce when you fall.

Glad your gear took care of you.

And yeah, I don't like OHV areas either. Bent front fender on the Jeep at Azusa Canyon.
