Back in the Saddle....cue Aerosmith

It's been a long time since Moe.ron and I rode together, too long. I had been out and about doing unexplored dirt and familiar terrain while Moe.ron healed the body and healed the machine.

Today would be an easy paced street ride. From Ventura, CA 70ish miles to Angeles Crest Highway I decided to take the K7 Wee on this one, it is a great cruising road ride bike and it has been gathering dust since I picked up the F800GS. I him and haw about selling it, but I love it so and it's all paid for over and over...I am going to hold on to it for now and use it for street rides.

I was still allowed to start the ride at SBUX, even though I was not on a BMW



Fast forward an hour and here we are




Flowers are still out, weather was great and the roads...well they are world class Damn, we got it good

the roads get better and better the higher we get



Lots of bikes out, in the hundreds on this 50 mile stretch, some guys were real fast and got around politely as we spotted them in mirrors and moved over while others scared the shit out of you as they passed before you even knew they were there

Life is too short to be pissed for too long though



Fell in behind these two on older enduros, no rush and easy pace...it's my new thing I am trying on for size..



Don't get my wrong, I love speed and I love the thrill & zen of it all, but I need to slow down and take it easy...I am a Pappa now

You're cruel and I might have to unsubscribe to this thread before I have to take a ride to CA to see some of those cool roads you are riding. I like that Dirty Duc too, I'll bet there are some stories that go with that bike.

Stop it! Yer killin' me

Really Guys, end this thread right now, there's too many people here as it is!

Seriously tho, your Pics/Vids & commentary is first rate.


McGrath Beach Campground.. ( 3413'39.19"N, 11915'30.06"W) Familiar with it? Is it as tough to get a spot as the CG's down here? Looks like a cool place to camp / Surf / ride from.
