    Just a whole lot of not much east.

    Was nice and cool up top but down in the valley it was hot
    [​IMG]
    Randy then took me up to Mt Helix which over looks San Diego. Not much to see due to fog but none the less a 360 degree view was had.

    So Wednesday, took Adrian up to Mt. Helix, then met Arnie Fry and Eddie (Shafted on ADV) at Eastbound Bar in Lakeside.

    Thursday night, we had another get together at Ed's....with Eric, me, John Penrose, Adrian and Codyboy. Arnie Fry didn't make it down from Ramona.

    Then saw Adrian off this morning....Ed gave him a map and showed him which back roads to take to get to Glendora....I think he made it thru Borrego and Idylwild, and his clutch slave cylinder gave out 65 miles from Glendora....he joined AAA when he got here, so don't think the tow cost him anything. His friend had a spare slave he put on, now he's good to go on his trip from LA.

    Great to hear Adrian say his experiences in his first few days in America have been great, as well as the people !

    Hey Hodgo, now you've done it....invited me to Australia....now I'm gonna have to take you up on the offer and come ride that Africa Twin !

    Was great meeting you.....Hodgo's a good ole Bloke, eh ?!!

    Hodgo, since I can't attach my photos here, maybe you can add them on here...I e-mailed them to you.
