I might be able to do the 9th... Which part of CA are we talkin about??? (I see SoCal in the title... but SoCal is still mighty big...)

Check with some of the the regulars, Mikey, Phobman, maybe Sugs will have a new ride by then, others?

Pass it on.

I have duty on the 9th, but it is no problem. I can do a duty swap or just request a day of leave. Anybody else, sugs, bigdaa (if you wanna come down to San Diego), SoCal919, Mikey, Phobman...

So we got plenty of options: make it short and just do a meet and greet (meet up for lunch or dinner), take a nice, easy ride to telegraph canyon (bring ID's for border patrol they usually wave me through though), or we could take a serious ride to palomar mountain (never been there before heard good and bad things about it I will probably take that one slow)

Just started a new project at work so I might have to miss this one. The team is way behind on the work and they brought me in to help out. Could be working weekends. But keep me in the loop... if things go well I might be able to break away for a day.

Unfortunately I don't think Sunday will work for me. I can't find anybody to do a duty swap with and I don't have much leave left over from my transfer (need to save for the upcoming holiday season). So....who can make it on Saturday? Who's comin with me?

Permission granted, if you can go an entire day without a sexist rant.

In other words, don't wait too long for him, guys. Leave without him.

Okay. So Saturday is definitely the day. Can't find anyway of getting Sunday free. So right now it is Mikey and myself (psst...I won't say anything about any sexist rants that are said).

So being as it is right now, Mikey, you got any suggestions for a place to ride? Telegraph Canyon is down south here right by the border. Palomar Mountain is closer to LA. The main run looks like a blast. It is serious riding. The backside down looks to be a nice relaxing run with some good curves spaced out. Thinking about meeting around 8 or 8:30 catching a little something for breakfast, break for lunch, then see what the day brings. Still looking at other routes too. I am new to the area so I have no idea what is around.

Stiggy, just give the word. We can plant a decoy leave a voice recorder set to automatically respond to any of your coworkers. SoCal, we'll do the same for you too. It will just be like skippin school.

Anyone who can make it is invited.

Okay how is this: We will do the palomar mountain run down to the lake.
http://www.motorcycleroads.com/route.../CA/CA_6.shtml

The only place that sounds like it will be open before 11am is The Corner Skillet (item H).

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...4222&z=12&om=1

Meet there around 7:30 or 8 am grab a quick bite and make the run.

Sound like a great plan.
We can even take San Felipe road & go up the backside(78) up to Julian.
Then back to the Palomar loop.

Make sure you bring your Knee pucks.

Yeah, you think the Alpinestars Reflex knee and shin guards with jeans will be okay? Ever since I got back from deployment this move has sucked all the money outta me bank account. I am not really too experienced either so I am planning on not going completely insane, but gotta practice.

I have duty on Sunday. If they don't stick me with a watch I might be able to squeeze something in mid-day. Where in SoCal? Don't know where to get an extra bike though.

Waddya know. I came across a pair of knee pucks attached to some pants, and they happen to fit as well. I might just have to wear them on Saturday.

Enjoy the ride gentlemen. I'm flying into LAX on Sunday and leaving for Chicago Tuesday morning. If anyone's around and wants to grab a bite or a drink, let me know?

I am about 2 hours away from LA. Maybe something after 6 pm depending on how duty turns out.
