Title: Ride Around Malibu - Sunday, 10/15
Post by: Rogue on 10/10/17 08:17PM
We plan to ride to Malibu this Sunday and enjoy the nice, warm "fall weather" while it lasts. 

We meet up in Westminster, junction of Willow Lane & Westminster Blvd (Westminster Blvd Exit from the 405):  https://goo.gl/maps/gKQeDMQMXg92 (https://goo.gl/maps/gKQeDMQMXg92)
KSU 7:30 AM

We then head to Malibu and ride around the hills and valleys.  Then we find a cool place for an early lunch.  Finally, we break for home. Hopefully, since summer is over there won't be much lane splitting on the lovely 405.

We ride briskly, but safe and responsible.  All bike types and abilities welcome.  Ride your own pace.

What? Too early to ride people?! Best time to experience Malibu is before all the craziness starts...

Well the goal is the next time I leave a job... it's forever LOL

Working/investing now to be financially independent on passive income before I'm 40!

Then just ride and surf and travel and topless maids cooking my food daily  :8:

That's funny.  I thought most people who leave are forever.  LOL!

I think the weather could be playing a role.  Suppose to be colder this weekend (75 degrees).  LOL!

Oh he had a gaggle of aspiring actresses all lined up. Iím laughing how these Hollywood types are acting all shocked. Seriously they knew and were just in self-denial. Weinstein is history and we shall ride and give him the middle finger!

Strong maybe.  BMW needs a tuneup, but the SV is ready to rock.  Ill post back on Saturday if I'm available.

The SV is probably a better bike for Malibu anyway.  :17:

I'm going to be a no guys.  Realtor called and has a list of homes to view. 

The SV most certainly would have been the better bike.  Would also have been the first time I busted out the full suit in over a year.  DAM.  I have every other Sunday off, I'll make the next one.

Excellent ride led by OOTV and Rogue. Enjoyed some newish roads i have never made part of my Malibu route. Very nice uncrowded roads. Covered a lot of ground and more turns than you can shake a knee puck at. Nice to see the ol gang again and meet Bob 1Fastrider too.
Everybody behaved themselves and road well. Neptune's Net was a nice detour too.

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.
