    May have to Ride back up and look for my Psychedelic Cuppy. Was great meeting everyone. Hope I can make it again next year. Bike scared me when it would not start but ran like a champ all the way down to 5 until I stopped at
    Mickey-D's. :dirtdog:muutt High Winds and cold temps on the pass only added to the experience. :vardy Bike is in the shop and I am depressed. I should have bought my Airhead out. Just love riding that GS. :raabia

    Cheers to all. Great group of Wackos. It felt like home. :pope:hide:snore:loco

    Lockwood Valley Road has been closed due to the fires. The whole place might be toast if the fires continue to move that way. Fingers crossed!

    Edit: Hwy 33 closed at Lockwood Valley Road. Lockwood is open. The 33 closure is being called a Hard Closure which typically means nobody get through, period.

    I was out there today. No closures on Lockwood Valley Rd.. We rode 166–>Cerro Norroeste—>Pine Mtn Club—>Mil Potrero—>Lockwood Valley—>33–>166 and back to Santa Maria. 33 is closed from the Ranger Station just South of LVR. I looked at CalTrans’ site this morning, and it DID say 33 was closed at 166, but it’s not.

    Well, my attempt at fending off the crud was a complete fail. I don't succumb very often and hopefully it will be MANY years before it happens again.

    I'm looking forward to next year. :freaky
