6-20-19 Rode to meet Karla at Patricia's Restaurant in Long Beach...



Met her at several bike events, the last time I saw Karla was at a RIS event in 2012...





The food was great!



Great to see you again, maybe next time I will see you on your motorcycle!

6-22-19 Rode to All Star Donuts...




I got there at 7:30 and Norm had just left so I didn't get to see him.



I dunked my donut and Hanzo showed up!

Going to Crystal Lake! As we got gas and started to head up the road was wet and there was a light drizzle.





Then around 1,000 ft the road was dry and no drizzle.





Then we road in the clouds and around 3-4,000 ft it was clear and sunny!



We stopped to see Crystal Lake.




There were a couple of people fishing, one is in this pic can you see him?




Then we rode to the Cafe and said Hi to Adam and got chili!




Hanzo drank a Red Bull to stay awake!

Burrito was great! So was the cookie! I passed on the chips!



I wish I got a pic with their sign showing who was who oh well.

Ran into some familiar faces!

7-6-19 Rode to meet Hanzo at the donut shop by his house...




Rode to Crystal Lake!



Weather was great! There were a lot of cars, bicycles and motorcycles!




A man with his doggie!



After Crystal Lake Hanzo rode home and I rode to get the tag for the Picture Game 2.0! Then I rode to The Hat in Brea for lunch!

After chili at Crystal Lake it's time for a donut!




That strawberry donut was great!

We then rode to Bert's Motorcycle Superstore to browse!



After Bert's, Pepe had an issue with starting his bike.



Got it started and we got on the Freeway heading for home!

Good pics, Eddie.  Good to see.  It looks like the canyon was packed!

What is Pepe riding these days?

Ride on,

Hi Snapshot, the white bike pictured is/was Pepe's first bike - that is now his street bike.

His blue bike is his track bike.

And they are both Yamaha bikes.

Thanks, Eddie.  I think it's an FZ600.  I had one back in the early nineties.

Ride on,

8-18-19 Met Kim and Pepe at the 76 next to the Hat at 8:00, we are going for a ride!



Heading to Wrightwood for breakfast, then riding ACH to Newcomb's Ranch!



We pulled off in Upland, Kim needed something else to wear (just had a t-shirt and vest on). So I googled for a Walmart it was 3 miles away. Along the way there was a Target so we stopped there!



Kim got a shirt so he is happy now and we made it to the gas station off the 15 and 138.



We then take Lone Pine Canyon Road to the Grizzly Cafe for breakfast!




Lone Pine Canyon Road has been repaved so it was a sweet ride!

Kim says the last time we were in Wrightwood was 3 years ago?!



We were here last April Kim!



Hey they have a senior selection?! Oh only Mon-Fri and pretty light stuff.



Pepe and Kim's breakfast, notice they put doilles under the decafe coffee cups so not to confuse with regular coffee!



My breakfast, Pepe and I also get pancakes!

Made it to Newcomb's Ranch!



Hey another SV! Talked to the guy, new rider and his first bike!



So we decided to head west to La Canada/Flintridge instead of riding back to Wrightwood.



Well ACH was closed so we rode Big Tujunga into Sunland!



Kim made it - he always worries about running out of fuel lol!  :D
