Knew a guy that worked at Boeing in Huntington Beach that had a green 09 but he sold his.

No Joe, mine was sitting in my garage yesterday in Cincinnati. I will be in Huntington Beach from Th afternoon - Sunday morning this weekend. I'll keep an eye out for you. Maybe we can meet at one of your great breakfast or lunch joints. My son is living in Dana Point, and we will be visiting him, but staying with our friends in HB. I'll send you a PM with my cell number.

Last group ride I went on had 4 guys go down in 3 separate incidents (thankfully all had gear and only got scraped up a little), not sure if it has gotten any better, that was over 10 years ago before I took an extended break from riding (not by choice, just couldn't afford a bike for awhile)

If I group ride, itís only with 3-5 at the most, itís people I know, and we stagger. Last April, I participated in a huge group ride for charity. There were about 500 riders. It started at the Hollywood Bowl and ended at a police academy in East Los Angeles. The speeds were generally 10-15 mph except for a short stretch on the freeway. They had motor cops blocking every intersection making it a little safer.

Not a big fan of group rides either. It does make a huge difference who is leading. Most of the time, it's either too fast or too slow, too long between breaks or too short, where to eat, on and on.

I actually prefer riding solo, but my wife complains about me needing a buddy "especially at my age".

..She's probably right.

I refuse to "group-ride"!

It's like flying formation - it's REALLY important that everyone has the same experience/ training, or else you're at the risk of someone doing something stupid, which can cause ALL the following riders to go down.

I ONLY group-ride w/ one other, usually, and we ride in "line-astern" w/ probably AT LEAST 50' between bikes which gives you somewhere to go if things go "off-the-rails"....
