Would love to go but my new clip-ons won't be in until next week some time. Kinda hard to hit the twisties with a bent left clip-on ya know. Maybe some other time.

Loose is fast and on the edge you're out of control.

it's all good...i've posted this thread in two other clubs beside this one, so HOPEFULLY there'll be a good showing. Though, it was kind of a last minute thing.

I took this ride out last weekend...logged in about 200miles. Awesome ride! Road conditions were fairly good...had one mishap on Palomar , but otherwise was a great day.

Yeah, I went down once up that way on Mesa Grande. Had a 40mph lowside in an up hill right hander. What sort of mishap did you have?

actually, the mishap wasn't me...it was one of the riders in the group.

He lowsided on Palomar going up the fast side. It was one of the last sweeping lefthand turns before Mother's. A car was between lanes trying to make a turn, and the rider already set his line...but the sight of the car forced him to go wide where there was loose gravel. You can imagine the rest.
