   Let me know you will be there instead of start point A, otherwise I will not stop.
   We then follow Live Oak (Picture of me & Lisa on May 16, 2010) and Antonio Parkway.
Point C: Hells Kitchen.
   Here we eat and then turn around.

   You need to survive 3rd street in Laguna Beach (serious downhill: YouTube).
   Then onto Laguna Canyon.

10 day forecast for Irvine.

************* Skill Levels Defined:
Noobie -You have been riding your motorcycle for at least 3 months (hopefully more) and have confidence that you can ride around streets without any issues eg. stopping at stop lights, not stalling the bike, not falling over etc, making u-turns, etc.
Intermediate - You have been riding for at least 6 months (hopefully more) and feel comfortable enough to handle twisty roads as found in local canyons. You are mature enough to understand going slow is okay and not to try and keep up with riders that are faster than you as it will result in a crash.
Expert - You have been riding for years and hopefully been riding with the members going on the ride long enough to know how they ride.

Sounds like fun.  I plan to meet you at Cook's corner at 11:00am.  Do you suggest I bring my cruiser or my sport bike for this ride?  Just curious about the pace. ;-)

I'm going to Fontana Sunday so I will have to sit this one out.  Need to stay fresh for the track plus my bike is already prepped from last weekend. 

Ride safe!

Looking forward to this. Recap...
Picking up "stormy" at point A with 10:30am departure, but not stopping at point B unless someone says (before 9am Saturday) they will be there before 11am.

Good rides to everyone this weekend.

I should create a topic explaining how/what I did.
Basically...
Ordered an electrified "Trip" tank bag from SW-Motech, imported by TwistedThrottle.com: Link
Added a Lexan plate on top and mounted my GPS navigation (Garmin Zumo 660) and radar detector (Escort 9500ix).
I can easily walk away with all my electronics, and they get fed with current when the ignition is turned ON.
Others (like GSXR_STEVE) are already in the process of duplicating.
