Can you see the buildings in the far off distance? It is downtown Los Angeles.






I think that the distance is 48 miles to downtown Los Angeles from The Crest Highway.

Thanks for sharing Mr & Mrs Tucker, you have entertained so many people for months now, & if I didn't know you better I'd say it's time you both took a rest!!!!But we all know that's not gonna happen.........

I may hold you to that visit to Newcomb's Colleen & James!!!!

Ride on over! And yes, you can bring a friend. Maureen is overdue (as we are in that direction) to visit Claremont. I'm thinking it would not be o.k. with Stephen.

As you can see from the pictures we did not come across one car the whole day!

Absolute clear riding the complete distance.

There was no ice and just a tad of left over gravel. Early on it was hovering around freezing so we took it easy on the bends.

Later as the sun shone we were able to give the sides of our tires a work out.

Then half way through breakfast it started to SNOW.

Just a five minute flurry.....but it had a few dozen motorcyclists running for cover.

We did a combination of Angeles Forest Highway and Angeles Crest Highway, with a dose of Upper Big Tujunga (Nine mile) thrown in.

All in all a very pleasant ride albeit a bit cold on the fingertips.

Thank you Paul for a hearty breakfast and about six cups of hot steaming coffee!

Colleen,
Are you supervising his clothing choices! I had a shirt like that once and donated it to the Salvation Army. They returned it! The striped sweater does kinda pull it all together though!

whatcha' talkin' 'bout? That's a beautiful sweater! Your sweater may have come from K-Mart/Wal Mart? Not this one!

James, Colleen and Hans,
We DP'ers usually ride on Sunday. Saturday we are all working so we can pay TAXES!! This morning it was 21 degrees when we got there at 7:00 and I too was without electrics. Still the ride and the staff at Newcomb's make it all worth it.
It was an epic sunrise, but Fernando and Andre don't give you any spare time to document it. If you tried, it might be the last picture you take . . .
Darren is soo cool to help me at least give you a coming home present and you know that we will meet up soon.
Glad to have you both back safely with a great story.
Paul

Hey guys, welcome home. What an adventure, I bet the Beemers felt different after all those miles on the DRs. Hope you're still enjoying the home coming - we felt at a bit of a loss for a while at the end of our trip, but always lovely to catch up with family again. How time goes by though, one minute planning the next doing and then its finished!!Hey ho...thats life...and no complaining from me....till the next time x
