    I am open for the middle two weekends of May and last 3 weekends of June.

    Anything similar to the 33 ride I am down for!

    Sounded like we had a few OC friends that couldn't join? Any good roads from the LA area to Socal or is it mostly highways? Or otherwise maybe something up to Lake Hughes or Angeles Crest?

    I'm open most weekends, Saturday or Sundays.

    Well, there was as many from further south that made it.
    To keep it fair... If half that show are from south of L.A., we should go south every other meet, unless the OC guys and gals would rather ride North. I sure do miss my monthly Borrego Springs visits when I lived in Del Mar.
    Once we hit June though, riding south gets into triple digits fast, so North might be the better option. I say we pick two dates a year. End of the month is best for me.

    To all reading this (not directed at you Poppe)...
    Only those who can really commit (this time) can comment, because we will flog you relentlessly if you steer the choice, and don't show. ;)

    Hahah! That's totally my fault this last time. I only had one day booked all of April, and it happened to be that same ride.

    As long as it's a Sunday I should be able to do it. And please not too far north, I'll be riding from San Diego.

    I really enjoyed the last V7/V9 ride we organized, and I would love to do it again.
    Really nice meeting fellow owners!

    Do we have any straw-man dates for a ride?

    So of those who will actually go, sounds like a Ortega/DeLuz/Palomar (and further to Borrego?) ride is next. Post on thoughts if you can/will ride if we have a solid date, end of June or July(?).

    Never done those roads, but I've heard good things!!

    I would say sooner (June ~ even May) rather than later (July).

    As a displaced San Diego native who has ridden every single twisty and wonderfully elevated road in Southern California so much that I could do them blindfolded, but who has been exiled to living in Northwest Ohio for 14 years, a place so flat you can watch your dog run away for two weeks, I have only one thing to say...

    For a guy who has lost touch with this group, I am happy to see these rides being organized! I would love to come down for a ride and looking forward to hear a date so I can try to organize my schedule.

    I definitely won't try to steer the choice North because my spring is jam packed with stuff so I'm not sure I can even make it, but I'm going to start following this page again and do my best to get out for a V7 ride at some point. I live North of Fresno, but would come down for a ride if I can get the dates to line up.

    Seems like a good option as well.

    There are some great loops around Angeles Crest, of course I live right at the base, about 2,000 ft from the Shell Station meetup.

    Tough getting folks to commit as those here can see.
    Once we hit July on, it'll get silly hot to ride South and inland. So again, of those who will actually commit... dates and next location?
    I'm not a fan of the Crest on the weekends, and more so over the last few years here in the Santa Monicas because of the mindless crowds that gather for the RockStorePhoto dudes.

    I hope the weather cools a bit so this can happen soon - I just purchased a Roamer and look forward to meeting some fellow Guzzi riders!

    Me too, but we're months away from that. Let's keep chatting here to pull people out. How far do you want to ride?
