Last time was great (http://www.ocmoto.com/index.php?topic=28296) with 13 riders, so let's do it again.

Map of the route:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=MacArthur+Blvd&daddr=MacArthur+Blvd+to:MacArthur+Blvd+to:San+Joaquin+Hills+Rd+to:Newport+Coast+Dr+to:CA-1+S+to:33.555907,-117.760112+to:Burt+Rd&hl=en&geocode=FQcfAgIdhK75-A%3BFcN8AQIdJJj5-A%3BFfANAQIdx5T5-A%3BFSXNAAId18_5-A%3BFRBwAAIdOsT5-A%3BFfPO_gEdt8f7-A%3B%3BFfjbAQIdKSb7-A&mra=dme&mrcr=2,3&mrsp=6&sz=17&via=1,2,3&sll=33.556872,-117.757162&sspn=0.008494,0.010761&ie=UTF8&ll=33.591457,-117.760048&spn=0.27169,0.344353&z=12

Point A: Start and gas station: Chevron at the corner of Red Hill & MacArthur.
   Follow MacArthur Blvd to San Joaquin Hills rd, then Newport Coast Dr to PCH.
Point B: Start of PCH section. Just a reference point, we are not stopping here.
Point C: U-turn at the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point. Just a reference point, we are not stopping here.
Point D: "Top of the World", close to Alta Laguna Park in Laguna Beach. Short stop and hike to admire the view.
   Then follow the 133 (Laguna Canyon rd) for some gentle sweepers.
Point E: End at the Denny's on Sand canyon rd, near the 5 Fwy. Open 24 hours..

************* 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.

I dont think I'll be able to make this one.  I've got family coming in and I guess I'm "supposed to spend time with them."  Who knew?

7 riders showed and it sure was fun, although things got scary for some at "Top of the World" but best not to talk about that.

Maybe I will see you guys tonight: 7/10 (that's not a date) ride tonight (May 27) from Original Mike's (http://www.ocmoto.com/index.php?topic=29002)
