    I would like to thank you guys one more time for this wonderful Sunday ride. Despite the coldish weather and high winds, we had 17 riders with bikes from GS1200 to Cathy's TW200. :clap

    It was good to see some GS riders blending in with KTM fanboyz.

    [​IMG]

    But as usual, KTM was the fist choice of LA riders. :D

    [​IMG]

    I always admire Bob (father) and Matt (son) riding together.

    We took Cleghorn to Summit Inn, thinking to be there by noon. But it took us only 30 mins where it took us over 2 hours last year for the same ride in snowy and muddy conditions. :huh

    [​IMG]

    You can see about 8-9 of us riding through 138 twisties.

    [​IMG]

    For a second there, I though GS riders were taking over :lol3

    [​IMG]

    We did some hill climbing as well

    I remember this spot from our last ride here. This time we didnt have to move the boulders. :D Damn this is one fat tire...

    [​IMG]

    Matt is sliding on a corner (check out the front tire and the direction)

    [​IMG]

    Look what I have here. I know Joel doesn't have a lot of pics so I try to take as much Joel pics as possible. :lol3

    That's it folks. Thanks again and you can find all the other pics on my SmugMug.

    Glad to be part of the big ride yesterday and happy anniverssary Ersin. Just glad the wind on the 15 wasn't as bad riding home as it was riding up. Looking forward to the next ride.

    I generally find it easier to ride the bike up a hill, but if some you guys like to make it more challenging by pushing instead...
    ...well I guess thats okay with me :augie

    Fantastic pics Matt. Your shots define that hill climb much better than shooting it from above/below.

    enough room for cathy's fat tires. the GSAs may have a clearance issue.

    Those are some busy RR tracks...... Is anyone watching for an incoming choo-choo?

    Clearance looks a little tight to me :huh
