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

Thanks Dane, for posting to the calendar.  :)

It's a last minute ride, but I just learned myself I had a time gap to fill Saturday morning. I did this ride on Thursday night and enjoyed it enough to repeat it, by day this time.

For those attending, let me know if you want me to bring a 0.5 oz Plexus spray can (http://www.ocmoto.com/index.php?topic=28626) for you. Just $5.

Yeah, I saw your ride, but had to be back before 1pm for other plans.

My ride was fun, the only traffic was on Laguna Canyon near the pet hospital, otherwise good. I also took the time to fully explore Modjeska Canyon, very cute. Returning there tomorrow with the GF for the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary (http://www.tuckerwildlife.org/).

Good rides,
   Jerome

Surprising little road.
