I would really love to be able to join you, but am up in Cupertino on a contract job. Runs through mid September. The SV is parked at a friends in Long Beach.

Have a great birthday, and ride safe!

Count me in!  Why would you move?  At least youíre 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... ;)

Really wanted to do this ride but a recent sprained wrist has me doing rehab and this is just too much for me at the moment. Sorry i didn't make this. Hope you have a safe and awesome ride/bday and the move goes well for you.

Happy Birthday Doug! Looking forward to the ride report, and pictures! Jealous, as my bike has been parked for 3 weeks in LB with me up here in San Jose, and it's another 3 weeks before I come home. Need pics! :)

Good times had by all. Nice seeing everyone again! Felt good hitting the twisties after so long, and for some reason, I didn't dislike GMR this time around like usual. Maybe it's growing on me.

For some reason I always forget to take my phone out and take pictures! It felt weird riding on public roads for fun again but with this group it at least felt comfortable!

Good to see the Tanners, Capt Bob and Lyle again too. Hopefully I can get my personal schedule a little more in line with riding one day a weekend like I use to. Family obligations, both for happy and sad reasons have me a little tied up but I think after September things should come back to ďnormalĒ.

I had a great time. Old friends, new friends, great weather and roads, and a new to me bike I might still fall in love with...

Think I am going to do an early morning Palomar run on Sunday. I want to get out before all the traffic and cyclists, as well as not deal with a ton of traffic to and from.

Happy to join if you guys want. Thinking Pala Gas @ 7
Title: Re: Goodbye So. Cal / birthday ride
Post by: 1fastrider on 09/01/18 03:23PM
I'm thinking gmr or maybe malibu. Maps says it takes about hour and a half from my place to pala gas so dang that's a long one.

I got tired of the long trek to Palomar so I moved closer. I feel the struggle.

Doug, just wanted to thank you again for this ride. It got me reinvigorated to get back on the saddle. I've since slapped on new tires and have hit Palomar at least 4 times since.  :27:

Where's the 'Like' button!

This was the first street ride I have done on quite a while, can't recall the last time I was at GMR or Palomar. Hopefully, I'll be able to get back on a weekend ride schedule soon. It's looking like October before I can get a "me" weekend. Friends and Family obligations at the moment, at least until the end of September.

Glad I had a part to play in getting your groove back. We all had a great ride that day everybody was so chill :)  I hope Ocmoto peeps realize what we have here and take advantage of it more.  :17: :8: :7:

Glad everyone had fun, and wish I could have been there!

Just got back in town last Friday, and heading out to finish Route 66 from AV to the coast this Friday for 10 days.

Will be trying to go up to Crystal Lake Cafe the morning of Oct. 7 if anyone is available and interested.
