SoCal, Long Beach, LA area Roll Call!

Hey, just wanted to know how many people we have around the SoCal, LA area. Maybe we can get a small group together sometime. I'm in Long Beach. So, feel free to PM me! Where you at SoCal EX500 members?

Take it easy and ride safely..

Hey guys, Snake asked where I'm at so I thought that this would be the perfect thread to post in. I'm located in Buena Park very close to Knott's Berry Farm. My wife's family lives in NLB by the 710 and 91 freeways.

If you guys are interested, in the Beartooth Kawasaki forum there are a couple of guys that try to put together rides at least once-a-month. The rides tend to be about 98% Cruiser/Tourers of all makes and models but occasionally a SuperSport or Streetbike appear. I went on one ride with the group through the Malibu Canyons last October a week before all of those fires flared up; there were almost 40 bikes on that ride. I took the munched-up 500R and really enjoyed the ride. It was way more mellower than I'm used when doing the twisties but that just meant that I had a different kind of enjoyment. On the last part of the ride the cruiser in front of me must've been on his first ride so I decided to see if I could ride down the whole hill in 3rd gear without using the brakes--only used the brakes twice and got some good exprience.

Typically there is a staging area in the Buena Park Mall near the Wal-mart and if there's a big group up north, we'll meet up in a second area near where the "actual" ride starts through the twisties. Last month they did a couple-hundred mile ride from the mall all the way to Julianne. They wanted me to go but my wife gave birth the weekend before so that ride was out. I'm not sure if I'll make this month's ride but I'm planning to make the June one; I was trying to convince one of the organizers to take us through two or three runs through Angeles Crest. His fear is that Angeles Crest will be too short for some of the riders that will be arriving from farther away.

Anyway, if you guys are interested in taking part of some group rides with all kinds of bikes and great people, check out the Beartooth Kawasaki forum.

I'm in Placentia. My bf dropped my bike (I thought he said he knew how to ride) so she's out of commission right now while I get some parts, but would be interested in meeting up this summer

Ninja Gurl - You get your bike fixed yet? Do you have a good mechanic? I know a guy in Garden Grove. Better than the dealers and certainly less expensive. If you'd like I can give you his number. let me know...

Hey OCDelGuy - I'd love a good mechanic's number. My carb is clogged AGAIN so I am pretty sure I am not doing a good job of cleaning it. Unfortunately, I've also had some issues with my drivers license, so I can only go to work and back until December, so I am missing all the fun rides this summer and fall... What a bummer! But I do want to get my bike up and running so I can ride her to work instead of driving my gas guzzling truck. [/color]

Sounds like we might just have a small group of "Halfers" here in OC. I'm also in GG. Let's get together for a ride or maybe a bike night...

Re: SoCal, Long Beach, LA area Roll Call!

Still have to decide where to ride or which bike night to attend...

There's Ortega Hwy, Pac Coast Hwy, Azusa Canyon, GMR or maybe a bike night.

Frisco's in Downey on Tuesdays or Frisco's in Industry on Wednesdays. Industry is bigger (more bikes).

Or any other ideas? Locations?

Carlsbad, CA--about 45-minutes from Palomar Mountain.
I feel sorry for you poor b@$t@rd$ who think Ortego Highway is something special.
If you guys ever want to see some real roads, let me know in here. Palomar Mountain is to Ortega, as Everclear is to Coors-lite.
