    Didn't know Bedford motorway was open from 15 side up to Main Divide. I live in Corona and my office is in Tustin... been thinking of doing a ride up Maple Springs out to Ortega after work this week from the office to home.

    Where do you guys go once you reach Main Divide road?

    You could ride Bedford to Maple Springs to get to work.

    What time you think you'll get up to Main Divide? sounds fun to connect with you guys at the top and then ride back down with you all.

    That never even occurred to me. Will definitely do that... better than playing frogger on the 91 express lanes

    It normally takes us about 30 mins by the time we all get there. 6:15 to 6:30ish.

    That was a fun break, hope everyone made it home OK.
    I thought that by "doppler" you guys meant the antennae on Santiago Peak and after the picture stop I got separated from everyone... The guys in front of me, I dawdled around long enough for the dust to settle and lost them, then after about 5 miles solo I stopped for a break, expecting some of the 4 guys behind me to catch up.
    After waiting 10 minutes or so I thought "You dummy, you missed something!" and turned around. Come to find out there was a crash and a flat tire that halted the 4 and I was, in fact, going the right way.
    :doh

    This is where I turned around:

    It was a fun ride, and I can't believe I have missed 98 of these Humpday rides!?

    Home at 8pm, just in time for dinner (tole the missus to expect me at 8). Thanks for letting me tag along.

    And @GeoMoto , DV was January 2010, I found my pics. Really wet winter that year. Let's make the next one closer than 9 1/2 years! :D

    Wasn't 2010 your first year at DV Jesse?

    And Stu, what year did you have that KTM, you know, when we rode up to Wildrose and you tried to impress those 2 women by jumping of your bike.
    With the kick stand still up! Ha ha ha, that was funny.

    I think this was taken the year before ... f5cker

    GeoMoto organizes weekly night rides and supplies food for the milestone of 100 rides?
    I nominate him as the best ride organizer ever! Simply amazing feat and great group of committed riders.
