So Cal Riders,

Mjsdouble, SharknoseScott and I will be meeting at the 76 station on Foothill/Angeles Crest Highway (Just off the 210 Freeway)in La Canada at 9:00AM to ride up Angeles Crest Highway to have breakfast at Newcomb's Ranch. It will be a great ride up the canyon to a great place to eat.

The last time I was there about 2 months ago, Jay Leno was in the middle of our group driving a McLaren F1. He stopped in and ate and visited with people.

Weather should be great. Please reply so that we know how many people to expect.

Looking forward to a nice Saturday ride. Interestingly, the last time I was up there (at Newcomb's), Leno was there as well (it was about a year ago). He was on a BMW K 1600 GT. Real down to earth guy. Happy to stop for pics and chats. My wife was smitten and had to go in and pester him while he was eating with the two riding buddies that he was with (one was on a classic BMW boxer).

Weather should be good, but warming up. Hope some more SoCal folks can join us.:D

If I don't have to work Saturday I'll join you. Time will tell. When i do the crest I ride up to Wrightwood to eat. Newcombs food is not so good in my opinion plus the extra miles is nice. But this is not my ride. I also prefer to go up Angeles Forest from Tujunga as opposed to the front of the crest as there is less traffic and cops over there. Not sure if you guys know this route so I thought I'd throw it out there. To get to Wrightwood I take Angeles Forest to Mt Emma to Fort Tejon to I forget the name of the street and I find it to be a much nicer ride. Check it out on a map. Low traffic, less cops, more enjoyable. Either way, enjoy.

I hope you can make it Drew. I still owe you a meal. Thanks again for dropping off the hub for the wife's bike. It would be good to roll with you if you can manage it.

I should be free but I need to get some business done tonight to ensure that I can make it. Fingers crossed. You owe me nothing, if anything lunch is on me.

Trouble is that Saturday, September 14 is Star Trek Day at the LA County Fair.
There are many that expect the Klingon Presence at the Fair.

Another time.

Hogpro,

I thought about the route you suggest as I have done that as well. I'm planning on coming back the back way down through Acton, Soledad Canyon, maybe even a stop at Old Road Harley.

All depends on how long people want to ride.

This sounds like a great ride. I do this one a lot going the other way around. I wish I could go but I have a dog that needs to see a specialist on that day, it sure sucks when they start getting old.
Is anybody going on the Love Ride? Oct. 20 in Castaic Lake.

Sorry to hear about your dog Mark. I just put down my 16 year old Lab a few months ago. Hope it's not too serious. Look forward to seeing you again soon. The wife and I are planning in doing the Love Ride.

I will be there. Took care of my business that could have bled into the weekend last night.
Glad you can make it Drew. I thought you might be heading to Corona. That bike would be tempting if I were in the market.

I'm in for the Love Ride. Will probably head down to Glendale at 6 to listen to the bands and Jay down there then head up to the Lake.

It is with a heavy heart that I have to inform you I cannot make the ride tomorrow. I just sold my 05 RG and am not getting my 13 until Tuesday so I will have to wait until next time someone puts a ride together.

I just responded to your thread about the amp bracket. Glad you're able to
upgrade on the ride. Catch you next time.
