I'm out of the shadows!
« on: 02/17/16 04:06PM »
Hello everyone.  I'm a long-time lurker that has finally come out of the shadows.

I live in south OC and I commute to Irvine every day on a BMW F800GSA.

On weekends I may be found on Ortega Highway on a Husky TE449 that I use for both dirt and supermoto.  I'm usually a solo rider but I think it would be good to occasionally ride with other folks, especially if its a new area.  I'm thinking about trucking my sumo occasionally to other spots other than Ortega.  Not really down to ride that thing to GMR or Malibu from my house.

I'll contribute when I can and ask my share of questions as well.

Welcome, and glad to see you joined!   :30:

I bet the Husky would be fun at Malibu, I rode my XR400 all the way there and had a blast!  Staging for GMR is pretty easy, and one of our other board members hauls his RD 400 up that way as well...
Every day is ride to work day!

GMR from south OC is only 47 miles.  But yeah, those freeways move fast and you don't want to be chugging along at 70 alongside trucks and SUV's.

Welcome John.  :30:

Step into the light my son! Welcome aboard I'm sure you'll find us to be a pretty decent bunch.

He said he's a long time lurker, so he knows you're lying :32:
(Joking, John. Everyone I've met on here has been good people.)

Welcome OP!

Pass through HB?  I don't.  I have to get around the Back Bay, either PCH to Jamboree, or Irvine Ave to Bristol, then take University/Jeffery to Baranca.   

That's a decent commute...freeway?

It's an old thread, so we can derail it... My new office location is Culver and Portola. We'll have to do lunch
