Engineer ...so fun.
last time only 6 came out of that part of the ride hopefully more don't stop for pie instead ....Riding down that road was like being in the movie Nightmare before Christmas. Mesa Grande is the real fun road.... except for that one little patch of dirt that i always seem to hit and i don't know why...just have to watch my line...haha

Brad....per mapquest, it's about 30 minutes from Laguna Niguel to the hotel. Is this about right or should I expect it to take longer? Not sure I can swing the $400 hotel bill, so I may just come down and stay at my son's in LN.

Excuse me sport, but there is a line, and you're at the other end ...

Sorry you won't be on the LZ with us John. I'm sure Patrick will be relentlessly wiping the bugs off his new fairing, so you'll be there in spirit

WAIT!!! You're gonna be here? Yay! Disregard my 'I'll miss you' post. :hug:

And, thanks for the vote of confidence, but I don't recall ever schooling Patrick in anything! I do recall vividly following him (with tinted face shield) through the fog and dirt roads, praying he'd slow down so I could keep his taillight in sight!

It will be good to see you too Roger. I think you might have to organize a ride in your area. Its only fair since this group gets to enjoy your company at your expense and great distance to us. I'm sure we can return the favor of your company.

BTW gang; thinking about inviting another one of me on this ride. Rides a Vstrom like our friend that likes to embaress us on his. Gonna take some rides with him, starting tomorrow. Gave him a copy of the 'pace'. Smart guy, but did something really nasty to a car (you who know...know) that he didn't own a few weeks ago so I'm going to see if he always likes to be that fast. If I'm not comfortable, I will not even bring it up to him. Let me know if there are any objections.

Shelly...email on the way.

Is that like "How can you miss me, if I won't go away."?

Hehe....but, you DID go away....for like, 2 months! That's long enough. I shall be prepared for impromptu serious-talk. Wait, if I'm prepared, can it still be impromptu?

Add one to the DNS (Did Not Start)list.

I am sad to say Miss Shannon, who very much will miss all of you, has to pass on this ride in SD. She will definitely be on the SLO and Yosemite Rides!

I hope this does not revoke Kerry's "PASS".

Kerry sounds like a fun guy, so his pass is not at issue.

However, have you considered that it's really your better half that tips the scales in YOUR favor?

little side note here:

if anybody is interested in staying at an alternative (and less expensive) hotel, this is our second good option:

http://www.bwmartys.com/

it's HALF the cost of the other place.

marty's valley inn .....a best western hotel.
it's close to both my place and the other hotel. the price is better. the "law enforcement keep-an-eye-on-you-guy's-bikes" support will be available at both locations throughout the weekend.

looks like scott started a trend.
i'd suggest you all gobble up whatever rooms "marty" still has available.
looks like they're starting to go fast.
(i have a call in to "martys" to see if i can squeeze them for a group rate. i'll know by this time tomorrow. any reservations already made will be moved under the group rate, if we get one).


(screw those other guys....they're not very friendly anyway).
