Thanks to all for joining. As Capt.Bob mentioned to me this morning, going early sure does leave a lot of room on the road for us! It was also nice that the few cars we did encounter pulled over and let us pass. Although later in the afternoon when thepretender and I broke off from the group, we encountered a van that seemed to not want to let us by and when he did it was a few corners away from a road closure.

There was a motorcycle accident about half way through Latigo Canyon and they made us turn around. Not sure the condition of the rider or what actually happened but there were quite a few emergency vehicles attending to the scene. Hopefully the people involved are OK.

Yeah that was a great ride across Malibu.  Really suits my DR650!

Terrible I missed a good ride.  I'll be sure to make the next ride with you all, and I'll bring the SV instead of the right-turn-always-on-BMW I brought last time.

Yeah it was a very good ride awesome time had by all. OOTV kept asking in the his comm when we came to turn "everybody here" the answer every time was yep all here and off we went. :17:

What about Malibu suits it?

My rear camera didn't seem to work too well but the front one did capture stuff. I still need to edit it down to view-able lengths. @Breakdirt, the roads in Malibu are twisty and bumpy, the DR has the suspension to soak up the bumps and plenty of ground clearance to handle the curves.

Me too I want to see video!!

BD, the Bridgestone Trailwings are awesome for the way I use it:  90% paved/10% Dirt.  But I shall refrain from commenting on how it performs in deep sand or rocky terrain as I have NOT tested it there other than hard packed dirt/gravel.  On pavement these tires stick.  Taken it to Palomar, ACH, and Ortega up to 70 mph on those smooth sweepers with no worries or issues with traction. 

I was telling the guys how the DR functioned wonderfully on Malibu's roads, which most of them are tight, technical roads with a lot of bumps--not necessarily potholes, just bumps and moguls associated with the ground underneath the pavement moving around normal usage/weather patterns/and terrain.  On a firmer suspension sport bike it can get tiring on the rider with a hunched over riding position due to so many elevation changes, and some of the bigger bumps WILL move you around on these bikes unless you set the suspension on soft, then you have to deal with suspension wallow.  But when you have 10.5" wheel travel, it just soaks it all up and I can focus on my lines and apex points.  The upright riding position also helps A LOT especially coming down Tuna Canyon road, which is one narrow, snaky, and steep SOB of a road!  But the views to the Pacific were fantastic!  It also ends in a section with potholes and more dirt on the edges of the pavement so the DR or any DS bike just shrugs these off.  Your DL650 will do really well in Malibu's roads.

That 650 did really well. I got my nuts smashed on a down hill section. Went over a sink hole type depression while braking. Supermotos on the tight roads of Malibu have always been a great option.
 I always enjoy photos and video.
Here is one of Mickey Rourke at Neptune's Net. Ran into him as we were getting ready to leave. He was looking a little ruff so I didn't ask for an autograph.
