Ride your ride fast guys in the front ect. full gear recommended ect.

Yowza... I was literally just up there Thursday at Penske MBZ. Kind of a long ride up from OC though... How about a Carbon Canyon run?

Most good riding roads are outside of OC - part of the reason I hate being in south OC - I have to travel too far to get to anywhere fun.

Not being a fan of GMR/GRR/etc I'll hit up Malibu or maybe go back to Palomar.  :8:

I'm in. GMR is the closest mountain road in the OC. 53 miles from south county.

I wouldn't ride a Grom up there. It would be too slow. Anyway this ride is a bust. I'm going to Palomar Mountain instead.

The group that went up on scooters would be to differ with you.

I agree. It would be a BLAST on Groms. Almost worth buying one used just to f-around, but I'm a tad large for one...

I wouldn't ride a Grom up there. It would be too slow. Anyway this ride is a bust. I'm going to Palomar Mountain instead.

I'll be at Mother's by 9:00. See you there hopefully  :8:

What's that saying? Better to ride a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow...
