Great ride put on by LAVersys. Thanks Sonny!
We ended up with about 18 riders, some sport bikes too. Not too fast, and not too slow, I think a great time was had by all.
Put about 200 miles on, all told. Bike ran like a champ. I'm now up to 600 miles - whoohoo!!
When we got to the top of the Angeles Crest Hiway there was a rescue chopper that had dropped a paramedic for a rider than went off the road on his Hyabusa. Heard the guy only broke his collarbone. From the looks of the wrecked bike in the back of a pickup, I'd say he was lucky to be alive.
We also had a stop by officer friendly. We had pulled off the hiway for a breather and to split up at the end of the ride. A motorcycle hiway patrol made a u-turn and stopped and got off. Comes up and says "I need to give you all a parking ticket - there's no stopping on this road for the next 25 miles.". What a dick. Why do these guys need to come off like that? He could have just as easily said, "hey guys, you can't stop here, it's too dangerous, you need to keep going." Oh well, at least he finally did just send us on our way.
Pics to come. I have to get a microSD chip for my phone so I can transfer off the pics. Hope to see some posted up by the other members.
Was really neat to put faces to names and forum handles. Nice bunch of riders, for sure.
