Got my front tire in today which is the one I really needed, rear should be in by friday Im hoping. I might have to take you guys up on that tire change offer. I gave up trying to change my own tires after an incident on my dirtbike that involed my fist and the teeth on the rear sprocket

I think this needs to be changed as I think leaving at 8:10 from the Chevron station at PCH and Sunset and leaving at 10 from the Chevron station at PCH and Sunset will be hard to do.

Also I posted this to maybe give more options to some people near my area.

18468 Burbank Blvd, Tarzana, CA 91356

This Mobil Station is where I will be at 9:15am for another meet spot (my spot to meet with my local crew) leave at 9:30am to Chevron station at PCH and Sunset meet there at 10:00am also can take a better route to the Chevron station at PCH and Sunset if the group I meet with wants to (more twisties).

Continue on with the rest of the group for this Route

Man, I'm jealous. You guys are pretty lucky. There's a lot of awesome riding in Cali, but the Malibu Canyon area has to rank up there up pretty high. Decker Canyon is the goods and that Mulholland section is legit. I was out there for my last thrills in early March before moving to the east coast and lost 2 of 4 days of riding to the weather, but the one good day in the middle was outstanding up and down all those great roads. Enjoy fellas, ride safe! Hopefully I can make it back out there sometime. Family is good for something!

Just finished editing a video i did a few weeks ago(March 1st) of "The Snake" going uphill, to give an idea of what the road is like for those who haven't been there yet. Its at live speed, not sped up or slowed at all, and i'll say now I don't suggest passing anyone in the turns especially if you don't know the road, that said i do it two or three times :) this one run there are 25 other bikes in the video, and the way they are talking about the weather there should be even more on Sunday.

1 more week guys (and girls) can't wait.

Video coming as soon as its uploaded...

Ill-nasty!

Btw that R6 has terrible form. I don't know who taught him how to ride. But you're supposed to brake BEFORE a corner, and throttle through. This putz is doin all his crazy leans, meanwhile he doesn't know when to properly brake?! Dumb. I'm a newb and even I know that. Ok, maybe he's not braking... but he's certainly letting off the throttle mid turn.
