May has perhaps the best riding weather of the entire year in Southern California. So guess what? It's big ride month! In deference to this theme, we've planned a great big, beautiful ride to the historic Rock Inn.
What's the Rock Inn? Only the coolest motorcycle hangout nestled in between some of the tastiest roads in the city. It's an old Post Office up on Lake Elizabeth Rd. turned restaurant with some of the finest roadside cafe cuisine. This ride is as worthy as any the "big boys" ride, and you'll see a lot of big boys out there; this really is a true motorcycle hangout. If you're interested in getting out of town amongst the flora and fauna, pine trees and many of the lakes this beautiful city has to offer, this is the ride is for you.
RSVPs for this ride open Friday, May 3 at noon.
Ranch Side Cafe (meetup spot): http://ranchsidecafe.com/

Kickstands Up (KSU) at 10:00am
Arrive early if you want breakfast at the Ranch Side!
Don't worry about that little bit that looks like it's going down the 5 Fwy. It's actually called "The Old Road." It's the precursor to the 5 and very passable for scooters.
This is a medium – advanced ride. You really need to know your bike and skills of canyon riding to do this one. Please no beginners or people inexperienced on their bike. As there are a lot of hills on this ride, 125cc and above bikes only. Two-up riding only if you have the bike and the skills to do it. We're not saying it's dangerous, but yours truly came around a turn up in this area and encountered a deer in the middle of the road once. These are some of the risks one must accept when signing up for a ride like this. No joke.
This will be a really fun ride!
Please show up with a full tank of gas.
Be sure your scooter is in good running order. Find info on checking your tires, oil and more here:http://www.meetup.com/LAScooterGroup/messages/boards/forum/9051472
