    I found this address:

    Jack In the Box

    <TABLE jstcache="0"><TBODY jstcache="0"><TR jstcache="0"><TD class=basicinfo jstcache="0">Placement on map is approximate
    3910 Sierra Avenue
    Fontana, CA 92336-1102

    Can we meet here at 9:am? Everyone should be ready to roll at 9:AM, get thier early get your shit together Gas up and be ready to roll!
    Don't forget to bring tubes and tools need to fix flats, you are riding with a group so if your bike goes down we all get affected. Fixing a flat is no big deal if your prepared 30 mins. It's going to be cold and wet so plan for it!

    I think my bike has the Tubliss system (I know, I know--I'll confirm today...), so I'll run out and buy plugs/CO2...

    Erwin. I would still carry a 21in tube. You never know your system could fail. I need re waterproof my jacket. Does anyone know where I can find a spray or dip solution? Ben

    So are we still on? Looks like rain for sure. If we are, I guess the Jack in the Box off of Sierra is the place to meet by 9? Anywhere to leave our trucks nearby?

    I'm good to go, but maybe we should wait for "Rider914" to confirm, since he seems to know the area. I hate to go and get lost in the desert during a rain storm.

    I'm 50/50 at this point. I'll let you guys know tomorrow night.

    I'm planning to ride to Long Beach tomorrow for the motorcycle show. If the weather ends up sucking and I don't go, then I may join you guys on Sunday. If I DO go, I likely won't.

    I'm still in--the only caveat is if the forecast gets changed to full on rain (from showers), I may decide to sit it out as I have zero experience in the dirt and that coupled with with a torrential downpour might be disasterous for a noob like me. Is there any danger of snow where we'll be?

    Hey guys... I'm out for tomorrow. I just got back from the motorcycle show and I'm beat! I have a lot of work to do tomorrow, and with the rain, my tires would suck if it was at all muddy. Maybe I can catch you on the next one!

    Steady light rain all night and still going. Gonna be a soggy day, but not often SoCal'ers get to ride in stuff like this.
    Don't really think ther'll be snow, but we'll probly be up in the clouds.
    I'm still in if anybody else is. I'll check back again before heading out ~8:30.

    Just heard from thunderdoggie. He is at JitB, but says raining very hard. He heard from Erwin who also canceled. I think thats everyone accounted for, so we decided to call off the ride. He will wait there until 9 in case anyone else shows.

    Maybe next week :deal

    I might be up for next weekend. I was supposed to go to Reno for Christmas (I have family up there), but things are very "up in the air" and I may not be going. If not, I'll be doing whatever I can to pass the time and forget that it's Christmas. :)
