Home safe. Sito and I took the 2 home all the way from Wrightwood. Thanks for the great ride, Matt! Let's get some small bikes together and explore all that singletrack stuff!

Nice vids marty. As always, that little hill was steeper than it looks.

Anyone interested in a ride on Sunday?

McD's, Cleghorn, Silverwood, whatever the XXX trail is out of the parking lot, to Pinnacles, return same way?

I'm about 90% in, just looking to see if there is any interest. This would be a small bike ride, taking all the hard stuff, would like to be done about 1p or so.

I'll be out that way Sunday, but won't be doing the hardest, most technical stuff. I'm a noob on an 800GS after all. But stop and say hello.

What time are you thinking? I want to do a quick shake out test ride before DV. I don't want to do a long ride just a few hours and back home.

No one responded about the ride so I dropped more $$$$ at REI (gots me a rubber plate, a lightweight spork, new filter for MSR filter, etc) and have the bike all loaded up for DV .

If you'd like to drive out there and want someone to ride with you, let me know. Text me 626-203-3278. I'd like to leave Monrovia not before 8a so I can get a run in first. We can either do some of that stuff in my post, or Baldy Mesa, etc. I can be back late or early, whatever.
