    Sat ride to PT Town who's in?
    <HR style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #575757; COLOR: #575757" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->I wanted to post this here just incase you guys don't look at the LA thread.

    My plan is still the same:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    Start at from the bottom of Hwy38 work my way up to (1N12) Moon ridge trail into Big Bear.<o:p></o:p>
    This is a fun route not a boring flat fire road. It’s a long hill climb all the way into BB. From BB<o:p></o:p>
    I take the normal route into Pioneer Town. Depending on what time we start and get to PT Town <o:p></o:p>
    Will determine what route we take back. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    I will be leaving Casa Sito’ at 8:am (Glendora) If anyone wants to meet me there PM me and I will send you my address. <o:p></o:p>
    I will be stopping at Starbucks Coffee 27615 Baseline St, Highland, CA 92346 to gas up and wait for anyone that wants to join me. (9:00 -9:30)<o:p></o:p>
    If anyone is riding small bike there are a few places to park a truck before we get to the trail head. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    This ride is open to anyone, it will be a long day and a Noob may find this ride challenging. I’m in no hurry and have all day to play. It’s been a long time for me off the bike so I’m going to be rusty. <o:p></o:p>

    :baldy Of course, the week that I don't check for rides, I miss this one. Been taking the 990S out and getting comfortable with it. Been wanting to learn the PT town with someone who knows too. And riding with Matt has always been epic riding for me. But I don't want to ride too far without learning/practicing how to remove-fix flat-replace my own wheel. Oh well, next time <label for="rb_iconid_19">:cry</label>

    I'm hoping to find time for a short 1/2 day ride this weekend :deal

    RFK is sunday > http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=876124
    A great cause and worth it for the breakfast and lunch :dg

    ... but I don't really care for riding in so much dust, so I usually just find my own way to lunch and then wander home from there.

    Let me know if interested.

    that's why we stay out front. :deal and a few miles in, ppl get separated so the dust level is low.

    :scratch

    :dunno

    I am planning to ride saturday, not sunday. We will both be on 525s. Any small to mid-size d/s bike with appropriate tires is welcome to join in, but a GS or Strom with 90/10 street tires will probly not have fun.
