    This morning, I checked out Car's N Coffee in Irvine. This event is fantastic, but go early. These dudes leave the gathering by 800am.

    Darn goose jumped in my pic, jerk!

    Pretty cool Sam! I've been to that a long time ago. It's tough to get up and going that early.

    Samthg,

    Just sold my Stelvio last month, and miss it. Seeing your photo almost made me cry.

    Got a new title on my thread.

    Thanks ADV mod!

    I'll just try to throw in some scoot rides once in a while, prolly won't be worth a crap, but oh well...

    Thanks for looking.

    My 4th ride with the scooter group took us up to Century City, CA. to visit the Annenberg Space for Photography. The center had a tribute to 125 years of Nat Geo's photos, and most amazing, it was!

    This is my first time to CC, which is basically located near Westwood, home of U.C.L.A.. Turned out to be a great experience and another fantastic 12 bike scooter ride. From my home start point, the trip was just over 80 miles.

    Unfortunately, no camera's were allowed in the center, thus no pics of the inside.

    They accomodate m/c's very well.

    Not all found the display that exciting, but most did!

    Gearing up for the ride back home. Here's 87 years young Tony, wanting to hit the road!

    The ride back was staying south on Hwy 1, under the runways of LAX, toward Long Beach. Nice ride back with a setting sun.

    Hello RRR,

    The NG images were displayed in two ways, the actual blown up hard copies, and video images. With the use of many, many flat screens the magazine cover would appear on a screen with the story about that cover, displayed on a neighboring screen.

    As we have all seen, what some photographers can do with their little 'image box' is just incredible. You know a little something about this!

    Great DV ride report!!

    Thanks for lookin' in RRR,

    Sam

    Just bumping this back up a bit trying to draw some more scoots out of the woodwork.

    I missed Feb's ride down to Mission San Juan Capistrano, they had a fine turn out of 24 riders.

    Hoping I can drag out some ADV pirates, since I seem to be the only inmate out there each month. So if you're out there lurking or passing through SoCal, join on in!

    March should be a goody, going up to Andy & Opies lake.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    Hey Tom, :wave

    It sounds like I missed a goody down to the Mission. Darn.

    At this point, I should not be missing the next one.

    See ya there?

    Nice hearing from ya Tom!
