I scout for good motorcycle roads all the time while I'm flying. It's pretty easy to do at helicopter altitudes. I have a non-riding friend that carries a camera with him and scouts golf courses instead.

Im gone for a week at a pet product trade show in Orlando and I missed all this drama.
Hey Peach, is that a Piper Cub?

Guys, for the absolute best rib eye. Go to the Funky Monkey Wine Bar in Orlando. Loved that piece of beef!

Reminds me of sunday morning blasts up 1, beers at the Zeitgeist, AFM at Sears Point, Scuderia West, Munroe Motors, and reading City Bike. Oh ya, and a nice surf session at OB. Thanks for all the sweet shots and keep them coming. About time to dust off the 950sm and put some new rubber on

Let's see, where were we?
Heading to Catalina Island…..
Leaving the mountains and now the 26 mile flight over water…






The bulk of the conversation before we leave the land was this:
'Now remember, if we lose engine power, we'll open the windows and we have about 5 minutes of gliding down before we 'land' on the water.
At that point, the plane will flip upside down and float because of the tires.
but obviously we need to try to get out asap.
You ok with that?'

My reply: 'affirmative'.



Hey, I'm a solid swimmer and I have all the confidence in the world in my pilot to actually pull off an emergency down into the water.






















The Pacific below...
















Tiny layer over the water, but now have Catalina in our sights….
and spots on the lens….




































Spotting the runway….

































































And the landing…..

TDP, Catalina Island looks like a great place for a couple of days of Day Trippin’ with Le Tigre. Ever had the opportunity to go visit the island?

Quite the flight.
All the way down from the Bay Area to Catalina? Cool.
The landing video seemed to show a good cross wind. It looked like you were about to land sideways.

Great stuff!
