    so i got in from the ride around 10:30 and the girl was happy and my friend just arrived from outta town so all is good!:freaky

    let me just say the moon was so effing bright, but when you'd be in the shadow of the hills, it was PITCH BLACK. oh yeah, and crazy windy. had to be up to 50-60 mph gusts.:zilla

    here's some teaser pics then off to bed.:viking

    gotta work tomorrow.


    BTW any of you L.A. weekend riders watch out for rocks and debris on the Angeles Crest and Angeles Forest Hwys. with all the wind, it was scattered all over the road.:uhoh

    here's Sito looking like a Battlestar Gallactica(70's version).

    This last FULL moon ride was thrown together a bit last minute, but with the weather warming, i figured what the hell, why not. nice cool evening ride with my bros, cold drinks, good food.

    i left work a bit early thinking i would make it on time, but for whatever reason, the traffic in Hollywood was CRAP! i split lanes for 5 miles straight down Beverly Blvd to the freeway.:huh

    i took this pic from Angeles Forest Hwy before Hidden Springs Cafe.
    it doesn't give it justice. the moon was HUGE!

    i made it to Lynx around 6:45 and as i was coming up to the trailhead i could see Sito on the side of the Upper Big T. i apologized for being late, and the first thing he says is "its fuckin spooky out here!":uhoh

    we made the decision to start on Lynx from the campground on Angeles Forest Hwy.
    Sito pulled out a couple of Jack bottles and a coke.:freaky HELL YES!

    we bombed up Lynx and met up with Trid at Mill Creek/Pacifico.
    the one thing i can say about this ride is we felt gusts up to 60 mph at least.:eek1
    at the top of Pacifico near Newcombs i seriously was almost blown over while trying to take these next pics.

    Trid(sorry i clicked the pic too soon cuz of the crazy wind that almost took me out)
    [​IMG]

    we get up to Newcombs Ranch and see a cop and van in the middle of the road a 1/4 mile down. we stop behind the van not knowing wtf is going on.
    he waves on and as we come up to NR there are stadium lighting and hundreds of people.......
    a security guard tells us to park up past the tree because we are in their shot......... for KNIGHT RIDER ! ! ! HAHAHAHAH
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    the mustang and main douchey actor was right near the front door of NR.

    we go inside for our eats and other than the crew we were the only ones there.:dg :dutch

    so service was top notch, fast, cold drinks and hot fresh grub.

    after the food, we almost walked right into a shot. :rofl

    the guys and i decided to call it a night but not without one more dirt trail.

    on the way down the Crest , it was a fast, blustery ride.
    we said our farewells and i made it home around 10:30.

    Razr, I designate you the ride leader on this one. This Long Beach boy doesn't know the area well enough especially since some stuff is closed. You make the plans, but I'm up for Lynx backwards at 6'ish.
