SoCal!

From LA Area(I'm in Monrovia) to Camp Pendleton area...

honestly I was suprised to see that there wasn't already a SoCal thread on here. but I'm looking for 2 things.

1. Obviously someone to go riding with

2. I've been on an R6 before and now have an 09 R1 with some seat time but want to learn more about riding and the proper way to do it. I want to learn how to do well... everything but how to be safe as I can while doing it (with some speed of course, lol)

Well here's hoping I find someone to ride with (guys, girls, age doesn't matter just want to ride with someone cool )

Hey Sean,

I probably would have ridden out to meet you, but my bike's down. Cam chain tensioner went out...a month before the warranty expires, lol. Next time.

I love F-bodies, and the WS6 was always my favorite. I have a bone stock black 2000 M6 now, but I had a 30th Anniversary when those came out, and couple modded Z28s over the years too. You have good taste my friend.

THERE USE TO BE ONE A WHILE BACK I GUESS THEY MUST OF TAKEN IT DOWN OR SOMETHING . I NOTICED ALOT OF THREADS TAKEN DOWN FROM THE MEET THREAD SECTION

BY THE WAY

A small team of riders are shooting interviews around the globe for a documentary about our obsession with bikes. They are looking to do interviews and get some group rides setup as well in the next few weeks. Will be mostly focused on the Mulholland Drive, ORANGE COUNTY AND ALL OF SOCAL area.

Riders in New York, The Bahamas, The Virgin Islands and New Jersey have already shared their stories, now it's YOUR turn!

-How did you get into bikes?
-Tell about your fallen riders.
-What keeps you riding in spite of the risks?
-What brand do you ride and why?

Need ALL kinds of bikes/trikes. Need WOMEN too!

PM me for more info! Thanks.

P.S. This is going down NOW! Step up or miss out! The world wants to hear your stories!

Sounds like a fun group to be involved with. When do you begin your tour of the area? It would be cool to meet some like minded riders in my general area too.
Hope to ride with some of you guys soon!
