    Fellow noobs, we need to do more riding than the vets to catch up and enjoy it without someone waiting at the fork. :ricky

    Anyone interested this weekend Oct 6 or 7? Thinking of Santa Clara Divide. Meet at 7-11 off Osborne (just off the 210N FW) around 8:00 AM. Go up on Little Tujunga and take one of the trails (still not sure which one) that will bring us to North Fork and Santa Clara Divide.

    We'll ride as far as we can and turn around whenever we decide too. It would be great if we can get to Newcombs for lunch, but have no idea if we can.

    See attached map I got from previous post.

    I may have to tag along. As far as going to Newcombs it should be no problem. Santa Clara dumps off at AFH. then take 9 mile to ACH then up to newcombs. Its a nice ride!

    I'm trying out AV KTM in Lancaster. It's due for the 4,500 mile service and there are a couple outstanding recall items I want to get checked out at a dealership (fuel vent line and oil check valve, iirc)...
    otherwise I'd probably just take it to George at E.S.P.:norton

    Think I'll be in, too. I can be the entertainment! (It's healed from the last time I was "entertaining". Is the official name for that section "Sito's Shortcut?":D
