Once you are settled in, expect a PM for a dinner invite.

Welcome home Tucker's and thanks for all of your hard work in taking me along for your adventure.
Paul
Thank you Paul so much to picking up the tab!!! Our Hans from Norway, who is here at the compound, was surprised and thanks you too!!!

Our gang wasn't up at Newcomb's. Too cold! There was a minute or two of snow flurries Crazy!!!

We decided to descend down through La Canada and hit the 210 through Pasadena. We almost NEVER do that! It is the shortest distance down the mountain. Ahhhh, back to sunshine and warm temps.......

We were all bundled up on our ride today. I had my heated vest on and was toasty warm. Hans could have used warmer clothes. James cord for his heated vest is in Argentina.

It was a wonderful ride. There was no one on the Crest Highway. We had the roads all to ourselves.

Hope to see you us there soon, Paul! Thanks for breakfast!!!!

Colleen

p.s.
pictures are uploading to Smug Mug.

Highway 2 (Angeles Crest Hwy) coming in to Wrightwood from the east











































These are pictures coming into Wrightwood. Wrightwood is a pine covered valley in the San Gabriel Mountain Range. It is at nearly 6,000 ft. and has 4,500 some residents.

The last picture shows one of the ski hills. There isn't a hint of snow on it.

Jackson Lake in Wrightwood could use a heavy dose of water!
I just read a news report which stated that the West is in the worst drought in 500 years.

Nine mile (we call it that because it is nine miles long) is actually Upper Big Tujunga

On a BMW 1200GS you can pin it in 4th most of the way, medium sweepers, nothing too tight, you only need the one gear......sight lines are decent......surface is great....................





100mph straights......usually I slow down here and speed up for the next bend.............It's a 55 mph limit














The forest is coming back from the fire of 2009. It burned 250 sq. miles of forest.

The fire made for great sight lines though, you can see around upcoming bends..................

A real variety of motorbikes. Not too many loud pipe cruisers until the afternoon. Morning is generally hardcore sportbike riders in full leathers and regular Dawn Patrol patrons on a mix of bikes.....most of which are ridden expertly and rather fast.

people come and go...............many stay for hours.....................it's a groovy scene.....................

















You often don't catch everyone's name, but most of the bikes are recognizable, you see them time and again.
















Many Hollywood/TV/stage/film celebs show up. They are unmolested and enjoy being just a 'motorcyclist'

we have seen:
Jay Leno
Matt Leblanc (a regular)
Lyle Lovett (very fast on a Ducati)























it's not unusual to see a few fast cars

Ferrari
Porsche
Corvette and such














































He wants one!



It wasn't too bad of a turn out of motorcycles in the time frame that we were up there today. It is nothing like 'normal' however. Normal would be hundreds of motorcycles all day long. It's great fun! The best ride ever and look what is at the end of the ride; hundreds of motorcycles, food, drink, and great people!
