Here's whatcha do:
Go up to the top menu of the forum, click on "control panel", then "edit signature" and you can put that puppy on each post automatically. Every time you edit the sig.. it will then show up however you want it, even on previous posts. That's how I keep up with my "hike miles" thingy.

Hey Darren;

Glad you guys made it back okay.

5th Dirt - Hi Mountain Rd

DDennis being followed by DarrenO, the water wasn't as deep compared a few weeks ago.



But DarrenO can still make a big splash



Don on his orange ninefiddy


We went through all the hazards without a scratch. The trail is just amazing, we all had a good ride.




Good section of the trail is in the shade, cool but hard to read the lines




There was plenty of daylight when we got done with Hi Mountain Rd, and we're out of dirt. The group decided to ride the paved canyons to Lopez Lake, and Arroyo Grande. Beautiful sceneries along the way, while Wally and Jeff were more interested in the female population.






Motel 6 of Santa Margarita is one of the best and cleanest of the chains. Not surprised it was fully booked.

Afterwards, we hit Jocko's in Nipomo for dinner and meet more FFs.




The ny steak is $28 but huge and delicious




Walt's portion, it's the small order and gave it the salute


IdeaMan opted for the bigger portion like me.



Jocko's was Wally's idea or Walt?, but the guys did good job steering us there. And this is Wally's



Jeff's and everyone's choice - Fat Tire beer



Only DDennis was able to resist the onslaught on beef


The meat wil actually turn your eyes red!


We ended our day just before midnight. Everything about Saturday was good for most of us. Sorry to see Treadless go home sooner, but we will see him again, this time on a different bike



I'll post the Sunday Ride tomorrow.................

Great ride, great guys!

Thanks you guys for putting together a great route for Sunday. It was great to meet and ride with you guys. A suggestion for next year, a little less public nudity.

John, we're just as glad that you came along and did the whole Sunday stretch!




I'm already ready to go next year! The week after Father's Day is good!

I hope the guys that went on over W Camino were able to get down the pass OK. there was an accident that closed the road. I managed to slide down the fog line for about a half a mile and turn down Old San Marcos but the traffic was stacking up fast.

Good ride, guys. A beautiful day in the back country
Thanks Dave for the Quatal heads up. Anyone reckless can really get some serious air and get hurt. Thanks also for coming along (partly).

We didn't see any traffic or closure at all. Rode along fine, and I tell you, the Camino is one of the best hidden secrets (not anymore) above SB.

Your scooter is fine on the trails but you have to add a bigger brother in your stable.

Sunday Ride Breakfast

For breakfast we hit Pappy's on Battavia Rd., right at the start of our planned route.



When we arrived just past 8am, Walt B., DarrenO, and John (XCountry Rider) bikes are already parked outside.







Immediately we joined the 3 FFs, and didn't take very long for shit to hit the fan





Later on, the waitress told us to cut out the crap and read the menu. Wally in a way jokingly made a remark, and she responded that I've used to servicing truckers and bikers don't mean shit!


Breakfast was served and those pancakes were good! Darren O is amused to hear Walt's story, which we heard over and over last night.



Dave is an easy guy, a toast, couple eggs and OJ are all he needs, that's why he's not fat like us!



Here's Wally and ordered an egg breakfast and chile verde lunch combo. You could tell he's one happy FF. There's also like half a dozen corn torilla in that round red container.





Jeff has a good appetite too





Me, I want it simple

Sunday Ride

Walt knows the area very well so he's leading the ride on his freshly fixed GS1200, at least to the parking lot !

He has to pick the GS up from Fresno so he can join us.



The rest of the guys waiting for you know who!





The CHP didn't like us hanging out near the highway.




While the rest of us start to get moving, Wally's reacted with suck my #^@! posture!


Cottonwood Rd


Just getting better



Found what we're looking for



Starting to gain elevation



This picture is not doing any justice to the actual beauty of the place


More injustice


The trail is carved along the side of the Caliente Mountain


More of the trail ahead




This time we're cutting across east to west and getting close to the ridge




My kind of trail


The trail we took on the way up






While I was busy taking pictures the FFs blasted away. Took me a while to catch up with them, but it seems they look BORED . Anyway, to you FFs take this



John's first time riding with us, that explain why he was nice to me! Or he realized he doesn't have much gas and saw my 7 gal tank and saw relief!


View from the top where the 2 canyons meet


Rare moment! Thanks Dave for taking my picture




More pics tomorrow! And I got more than 200 pictures to post.

Dan, this is the only photo that deserves to be posted. Forget the rest of the guys! Thanks.

Nice Multistrada though, just put knobs and you're good to go!

Rockin the CEDRIC beat!

Joel, thanks for all the great pics. It helps out to see all the great scenery I missed trying to keep sight of Wally and Jeff so as not to get lost.

Walt, thanks for your picks too. Walt, you are actually "Stan" whom I was thanking for your hard work to put this ride together. I can't explain my use of Stan??? in place of your name Walt, only to say I was very tired on Monday night after the long weekend ride , coupled with my delicate psychological mindset following my Monday afternoon Doctors visit to get the 45,000 mile lube, tune-up and oil change on my body (i.e. Fletch - are you usin the whole FIST Doc?... Moon River...).

Thanks John for the company back to the Central Coast late Sunday night, that made the ride home safer and more enjoyable. And to ideaman, your right - SLOCO, x5657. Anyway, great thread folks!

It was fun meeting everyone for at least breakfast this past weekend. The XRV is naked in the garage waiting for the owner to get parts from the UK, but it can't wait to roam freely as it did below:
