WHEN: Thursday, May 27 at 8:30pm (KSU time, so arrive before)
MEET: Original Mike's
ROUTE: See map link below
SKILL LEVEL: Noobie, Intermediate, Expert*

Join in the fun at the Bike Night @ Original Mike's: 05/27/10, then after you're done eating and talkin' about how great your bike is... Let's ride. Because food and social is not enough. Look for the guy in the red jacket.

It is a 59 mile ride, and will end around 10:30pm. Map of the route:
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=100+South+Main+Street,+Santa+Ana,+CA+92701-5220+(Original+Mike's)&daddr=Tustin+Ranch+Rd+to:Irvine+Blvd+to:E+Santiago+Canyon+Rd+to:E+Santiago+Canyon+Rd+to:Santiago+Canyon+Rd+to:CA-133+S%2FLaguna+Canyon+Rd+to:CA-1+N+to:San+Joaquin+Hills+Rd+to:33.675783,-117.861671+to:S+Main+St&geocode=FQXpAgIdbXr5-CF3l1Uh1Oz3qCkJ-o5yBtncgDEKPkyDXgvBeg%3BFbDDAgIdSpX6-A%3BFUSxAgIdZ7P6-A%3BFQCWAwIdlTL7-A%3BFfknAwIdPfH7-A%3BFbf7AQIdO0D9-A%3BFUZBAQId-B37-A%3BFe7T_wEdJrn6-A%3BFRDKAAIdHOf5-A%3B%3BFQk3AgIdYHn5-A&hl=en&mra=dpe&mrcr=3&mrsp=9&sz=13&via=1,3,4,6,8,9&dirflg=t&sll=33.671354,-117.81601&sspn=0.136005,0.171833&ie=UTF8&ll=33.663496,-117.742882&spn=0.272034,0.343666&z=12

Point A: Original Mike's.
Point B: Gas station: Shell at corner of Jamboree and Irvine Blvd. We only stop here if someone had not tanked up before the start.
   Up Jamboree, then Santiago Canyon (after the dusk bug frenzy has calmed).
Point C: Cook's Corner. Just a reference point, we are not stopping here.
   You can depart from the group here if you wanted a shorter ride, with the option of doubling back. Otherwise...
   Glenn Ranch rd, Portola, Bake Pkwy.
   Then follow the 133 (Laguna Canyon rd).
Point D: Laguna Beach. Just a reference point, we are not stopping here.
   Follow PCH to Newport Coast Dr, then San Joaquin Hills rd and MacArthur Blvd.
Point E: End at gas station: Mobil at the corner of Main & MacArthur.

************* 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.

You do realize that the raffle (the part that most people show up specifically for) usually doesn't even start until 8:30 (if it starts on-time), right?  The Happy Hour Menu is extended through 9pm (with helmet), so maybe you should do KSU at 9...that way you don't have limited riders due to everyone wanting to stay for the raffle and you give everyone an extra 30 minutes to eat!  :-)  There are usually people still arriving through 8:30...plus, you don't want to take business away from Nate/OG Mikes...considering all they do for us each Thursday.  ;-)

I usually register for the raffle so the vendors are happy they can SPAM me later and then I leave before the raffle so others are happy they get the prize. But tonight, I heard there was little or no vendors.
I spend all my money early at OM (going for the "blackened seared ahi" again tonight), so no change for them. Not seeking to be a big group for 2 reasons: Easier to manage while riding and insignificant impact for OM business.

Just an invite for others who want to ride without returning to late to their honeys. But late enough so that traffic has dissipated and bugs stop their dusk frenzy.

The raffle prizes extend beyond any/all vendors who are sponsoring a particular night - there are some of us who get stuff throughout the week to "donate" to the raffle.  The vendors who do show up with stuff to bring for the raffle don't often collect info - the little blue tickets that are usually used are discarded after the raffle. 

Just trying to give a heads up that some people that may be wanting to go may want MORE to be there to win a prize (if there are any tonight) and some who want to go may not even be arriving until 8-830pm.  Even those who get there at 8 and get an order in right away (good luck with that one) will barely be getting food by 8:20ish...

All good points, and I'm happy to hear how personal info is handled.

I just want to return home not too late after the ride.
Maybe someone will want to organize a later ride for a larger group?
