Jerome, I'm going to try to meet directly at the Mobil in Azusa...  I'll be on 10R (silver).  I'm trying to get in touch with Grom111 to drag him along...

See you then!

This is a last-minute decision fun short ride. Only takes about 30 minutes to get to Azusa from OC.

I will be riding "slower than normal" because my radar detector is being repaired.

Below is a picture taken in April on GRR (Glendora Ridge Road) on the way to Mt Baldy.
I like to see drop-offs on both side of the road.

I might come out since that's practically my back yard. We'll see if I remember tomorrow morning. =p If you see a red monster that only says Ducati on the right then that's me.

Total of 9 riders at the beginning in Azusa. Was on the warm side but not too bad.

I will let the guys tell their own crash stories since I did not see them happen (was in front).

Picture below was taken on GRR (Glendora Ridge Road). From left to right (if I remember the names OK): Mario, David, Nikolai, "I-like-my-slippers" Nick.

On the plus side today: No police, and cyclists did not interfere.
But I did get squeezed by a black Mercedes who wanted to be where I was in the carpool lane.

That's all for now.

mt baldy seems like it would be a LOT of fun if it were cleaner.. the no center divider thing didn't bug me as much as i thought it would..
