near the top of 42n4 and if you're slow, you get to enjoy the view



our ride leader found a nice shade and decided we should take another refreshment break.... ; i hope the rest of the FFs learned what to bring along whenever dr is leading a ride.....







you got to start loving pavement especially if has a lot of twist and turns


hard to keep up with those twins


crossing afh towards mill creek


sarge



no cold one for our ride leader on this stop...


so no one even bother getting off their bikes....


off and running on pacifico


that blue sky will be gone on our return ride


chillin in chilao


finally made it to angeles crest


not a common sight...dual sport bikes on angeles crest....yeeeehaaaa......


quick stop at newcomb's before heading to wrightwood


loner wearing street clothes and tidy ....


opening the crest all the way attracted a lot of bikes

Okay, Joel. This was chasing you on Upper Big T.


Busted. The 640 was running well I believe.

the previous owner (vrago) of my 640A did an excellent job tuning the fcr39, there's even a dyno sheet of this bike....from 33 ft-lbs to 40 ft-lbs at the wheel. unfortunately, i don't know how to use all that power on the dirt.....

angeles crest, afh, and big t....tend to wear out my tires at the right places...

newcomb to wrightwood

some of the guys bailed out at newcomb's while the rest of us continued on to wrightwood and to see how our tax money were spent




hey jim....it seems you're too close to the other side...


this highway makes me think of riding my guzzi again




it was strange not seeing hot squids that afternoon




everyone slowed down as we get near wrightwood .....




though lots of rock littered the highway, it was still a pleasant and wonderful ride. be careful out there, caltran was sweeping the highway constantly.

wrightwood

another inmate, 2old2ride, was leaving when we got there


we decided to eat at the yodeller; the place attracts different bikes


it took us along time to get our food cuz we have to wait for sopascat.....biggie waited for her at the corner and johngil offered to go back and look for her; after 15 minutes or more, loner told us that SHE WAS ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND RAN OUT OF GAS.,...

Saturday Ride

Great fun with everyone Saturday...

Thanks Joel and everyone for putting up with us n00bs. I'd be lost out there without you guys. And your ride reports are the best!!!!!

Our benevolent leader, Joel leading the pack to another adventure...


Sorry for bailing out at Newcomb's, it had been a while since I had a good pig-in-dirt wrestling match, so I decided to rest a bit and tend to some business inside.

looks like you guys had a great ride-- and another fine ride report to motivate the rest of us to get to bed earlier and wake up for the 8am start time!

the problem with 8am start is to get out of bed by 630am
