    @rider914 and whoever else is interested:
    Given the weather forecast how about we do it the next weekend? If you could do a three day weekend then maybe take a day to do some hard trails one day, camp in BB then form a posse in BB for the pitown leg (which is perfect for all noobs interested).

    Also if anyone can't camp overnite you can hotel it or easily ride back the same day if you have the tracks which i can email to you.

    Tw200 is serious fun. As is the newer more retro vanvan200.

    I think bob would love it. A ton of fun can be had with 9hp. I put close to 4K miles on my former one in 3 months.

    Matt, just buy one for yourself. He’ll ride it and if he doesnt, I’ll buy it from you for my daily scoot.

    690 'cuz I am still playing with suspension, but dad (if he wants to go) would be on his 525.

    I've been keeping an eye on CL for a good/cheap one nearby, but I don't really have the $ or garage space at this time.

    Not gonna mention that to dad :nono

    :lol3

    Anyone doing or up for something this weekend? I'm on a 1090 and looking for something day-ride-able from the Thousand Oaks area. Carrizo is pretty close for me, but I've been going there a lot and looking for something new...

    Let's say 9am at Lytle Creek Chevron.
    Dad wants to go, but will back out if it looks too cold.

    Hopefully someone will chime in.
    My next two weekends are pretty full.
