    Howdy,

    im looking to complete the job that I started last Sunday,

    "Sunday's Unfinished Business" Ride

    this is an amazing route, love it. an all-day event +300 miles ( without the Idlywild extra credit)

    roll out the 210 >15 > 138 bang the twisties to the Big Bear Shitshow, coffee up. drop down the 18 to the 247 > Lucerne Valley/Desert, haul ass across the desert to Joshua Tree Shitshow, coffee up then back to LA....for extra credit, if we have the balls and the time we can jam up the 243 to Idlywild, then home. healthy opportunity for +400 miles of gear banging, eye rolling, ticket collecting, tire shredding tarmac and twisties.

    meet Àbloc Cafe Highland Park, 0800 coffee, 0830 kickstands up.

    have your tires inflated and tanks full, this is a drop ride....ie, don't keep the pace you are dropped, so have your AAA card with you.

    here is the route:

    +7hrs, +334mi of epic socal twisty amazingness.

    directions from à bloc LA - coffee / food / love to à bloc LA - coffee / food / love via "Sunday's Unfinished Business Ride" in Google Maps.

    Fuuuuuuh! Dammit! Bad timing. Leaving for a week + the next Saturday.
    I would be so down for this with you (no homo).
    I think our bikes would play nice together.

    here is the route:

    +8hrs, +367mi of epic socal twisty amazingness.

    directions from à bloc LA looping back to à bloc LA via

    "Sunday's Unfinished Business Loop" Ride in Google Maps.

    I've updated the map, looks good except for when we double back from Waypoint #4 the "Deep Creek Hiking Area", we will go to the Northeast side of Lake Arrowhead on the173, through Skyforest NOT doubling back on North Grass Valley to Twin Peaks. I only have 10 Waypoint options and that would be my 11th.

    fuckit....I'm done fucking around with Google maps....its still auto rerouting. you get the idea.

    Since I would be coming from Orange County, if you're willing to stop somewhere between 210/57 and 15/138 at a specific time to let me join in, I'll try tagging along.

    good times man!!! we managed to weather classic socal storms on this adventure.....endless traffic jams, hordes of wandering, jiggling, sweating, burping, farting selfie stick swinging tourists and the traditional Sunday morning family freeway shooting.....it was a good day on the motos!!!
