Time for another Palomar Sunday...

If you are not comfortable with mountain roads, decreasing radius turns, etc, then this may not be the ride for you. You are responsible for your own safety at all times.

Route / Plan
1) Meet at Pala Gas Station @ 7:30AM / KSU @ 8AM
2) Ride up Palomar S6 to Mothers Kitchen. I don't plan to eat here, though. Keep your own pace as we'll wait at Mothers for everyone.
3) Ride down Palomar S7 to Miner's Diner for brunch in Julian
4) I will return via 79 south through Temecula. From there you can hit the I15 and head home, wherever that may be. You can also split off when we intersect with 76.



Note that I do cross-post this ride at VFRDiscussion, a Honda VFR specific forum.

I am going to start doing my "traditional Palomar Sunday" rides that I used to do. I'll try to post one at least once a month.

Is anyone interested in joining? If you are not comfortable with mountain roads, decreasing radius turns, etc, then this may not be the ride for you. You are responsible for your own safety at all times.

Route / Plan
1) Meet at Pala Gas Station @ 7:30AM / KSU @ 8AM
2) Ride up Palomar S6 to Mothers Kitchen. I don't plan to eat here, though. Keep your own pace as we'll wait at the top for everyone.
3) Ride down Palomar S7 to Miner's Diner for brunch in Julian
4) I will return via 79 south through Temecula. From there you can hit the I15 and head home, wherever that may be. You can also split off when we intersect with 76.

Time / Temperature / Location
7:30-8:00AM / 77F / Pala Gas
8:45AM-9:15AM / 76F / Mother's Kitchen

Off Topic / Goodbye OC (moving to Temecula)
« on: 12/27/17 09:02AM »
Just wanted to post up that I'm moving my home base to Temecula from OC this week. This allowed for more garage space for moto-based activities.  :25:

I'll still be active on here/the FB group. It also puts me that much closer to Palomar... so if anyone ever heads that way give me a shout.  :17:

So this is somewhat of a follow-up from my locksmith post. Took it to a decently rated one here in south OC called Absolute Locksmith. Long story short, they broke the top box, refuse to acknowledge it, nor do anything about it. They clearly put too much downward pressure on it while working on it. The guy who called me, Ben, was nothing but a loud, angry man-child who was obviously just trying to cover his own behind.

Nice to know my $450+ investment is now worthless structurally, and no longer waterproof (Honda OEM stuff isn't cheap.)

I plan to peruse this further.

Avoid these crooks.

General Motorcycle Discussion / Anyone a locksmith?
« on: 07/16/17 12:00AM »
Long story short.. I bought a top box for my bike but the person I bought it from sold the bike and accidentally locked the box. It's verifiably not stolen or anything, as I see forum history of them owning the bike with it equipped.

Anyways, I do dabble in lock picking (no idea how to tension it being so wide), but this is a bit out of my skillset being a double-sided automotive key.

Tumbler breakdown is on this pdf. I have the kit to re-key it. http://powersports.honda.com/documentum/MW01/08L76-MGS-A51.pdf

So, is anyone a locksmith?   :2:

I am going to have the dealership perform the scheduled maintenance on our new bikes to keep the extended 4 year warranty hassle-free. The 600 mile service will be soon.

Can anyone vouch for any of the OC Honda dealers' service departments? I see Mission, Del Amo, HB Honda, and OC Honda. I've read bad things about where I bought the bike from as far as their service dept, so I wasn't considering Mountain.

I know prices are going to suck anywhere I go as far as dealers are concerned. I just want the quality of work to reflect the price-tag I'm paying. Hate when they half-ass on plastic clips, little detail stuff like that.

Misc / Waterless Wash and Wax Options
« on: 11/03/16 10:39PM »
Due to water restrictions, I try to find alternate methods to keeping my rides clean.

Lately I've settled on Meguiar's Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere Spray. I wipe the bikes down after each ride and they look fantastic each time.



Currently has a $2 coupon on Amazon you can apply making it under $9 if you want to give it a shot. This is not an affiliate link or anything. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006FUT0CS/

« on: 10/23/16 12:14PM »
This was posted on the Facebook group Biker Down Alerts [SoCal] - apologies if anyone close to him is hearing about this first here instead of through family/friends.

He knew Ortega well, and rode there often. His YouTube is here.

Quote from: LA Times
The body of motorcycle rider was recovered Tuesday morning off Highway 39 in the San Gabriel Mountains after he disappeared on a late-night ride with two friends, authorities said.

The 31-year-old rider, identified as a Los Angeles resident, was reported missing about 10:36 p.m. Monday. Two fellow riders told L.A. County deputies that they lost sight of him just above East Fork Road along the 27-mile highway, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

After riding to the north end of the highway above Crystal Lake and not finding him, the concerned cyclists notified authorities.

Deputies from the San Dimas station and members of the San Dimas Mountain Rescue Team searched the highway without success.

Thick fog prevented the use of a search helicopter Monday evening, but one was launched the following morning. At about 7 a.m. Tuesday, a sheriff’s helicopter spotted the crash site off the highway near Coldbrook Campground in the Angeles National Forest, where deputies on the ground found the rider’s body and his 2014 BMW S1000RR motorcycle.

The California Highway Patrol said the rider left the roadway, hit a berm and was thrown from his motorcycle.

Investigators said they found no evidence of drug or alcohol use.

We had just rode up Palomar last weekend when a guy on a cruiser stated someone hit a tree. I found footage.

Off Topic / Looking for an (auto) engine rebuild shop
« on: 07/22/15 09:16PM »
Spun a rod bearing in the Formula. Anyone know a good place to have a chevy 350 rebuilt w/ warranty?

Thanks  :8:

Was riding Palomar yesterday, apparently too slow for this guy. Don't be the douche that passes in a turn, over the double yellow. Come on now.

He rides up there regularly so we'll be having a little chat about that. I wasn't particularly pleased.



Edit: I have indeed done this once, realized my douche level, and will not be doing it again.

So the zipper on one of my Cortech Latigo RR boots finally gave up the ghost. Repairing it seems like a waste of time at this point since they were 'decent' but not great.

Has anyone seen any good deals, closeouts, etc floating around? Let me know! Sport Touring / Sport / Track style. Alpinestars, SIDI, Dainese and the other big brands are all fine. Shooting for under $150 - size 46

I basically won't ride without proper foot protection after my last incident :24: so I'm hoping to find something in the budget so I can get on two wheels again.  :34: If not I'll just wait it out another few weeks and spring for more 'spensive boots.  :26:

Any suggestions and links are appreciated.  :8:

Current 'window shopping' list
- TCX S-Sportour Boots - $164.99 [RevZilla] - May be too narrow
- AXO Primato II Sport Boots $99.99 [MotorcycleCloseouts] - Seems like they're loose unless you have full leathers on (no calf adjustment)
