Rules, ride your own ride fast guys up front slow in the back, we wait for everybody with a smile and a thumbs up.
Full gear is expected but its up to you.  :)
Wil stop for some Lunch at the bottom at Legends Classic Diner after the ride.

Gifts less than $50 will be tossed at your feet and made fun of.  :36:
Just kidding your presence is all I want need or expect. LOL
Its been a blast riding with all of you, I'll still be around may even post a Sierra ride in the future.

Any Ocmoto member is invited for a ride around Mariposa/Oakhurst area or just going to Yosemite and need a place to stay just PM me.

Have a great birthday, and ride safe!

Count me in!  Why would you move?  At least you’re moving someplace more scenic minus the traffic and access to civilization.  :51:

I was tired of driving in So. Cal for a living then this year work took a dump 30% pay cut and worse hours. I'm able to move to a area that I love with 17 million less people. I think the move will help maximize my well-being and happiness. When the place isn't on fire clean mountain air. Yosemite Valley 45 min away... :3:

I 100% understand this mentality. I am so much happier in Temecula since I rarely go to the OC side now.

It took a beloved member of the forum moving to get this forum to ride together again. We should do better moving forward... ;)
