************* Skill Levels Defined:
Noobie -You have been riding your motorcycle for at least 3 months (hopefully more) and have confidence that you can ride around streets without any issues eg. stopping at stop lights, not stalling the bike, not falling over etc, making u-turns, etc.
Intermediate - You have been riding for at least 6 months (hopefully more) and feel comfortable enough to handle twisty roads as found in local canyons. You are mature enough to understand going slow is okay and not to try and keep up with riders that are faster than you as it will result in a crash.
Expert - You have been riding for years and hopefully been riding with the members going on the ride long enough to know how they ride.

Gee, it took me 1.5 hour to enter all the waypoint in my GPS so we will follow the route as described.
Funny how the GPS wants to avoid the twisties.

Suggest 5 - 22 - 405 - 101 instead of taking the 5 all the way up to the 101.

Have fun!   :17:

That route seems about as good as "Just the 5". But I will let the GPS decide what's the fastest, since the fun really starts once we get in the Malibu area.

Have a good breakfast, because it will be a late lunch, probably around 2pm.

Not-yet-OCMoto-member John will also join, so we are 4 so far.
