    Anyone else going to CA Superbike school next weekend on 4/20?? Would be great to be able to car pool up there with someone!

    April 11, 2013

  • Sean F.

    Would anyone be up for an ortega ride tomorrow in the AM? I'm really getting an itch to ride but can't be missing the 12pm MotoGP race on sunday!

      Sean, Brett is planning a 200miles ride North (Ojai and the likes). I may join too if you're interested. ETD 9-9:30am

      April 5, 2013

    • Sean F.

      I would be down for that another weekend but this weekend i'm trying to get back on saturday around 1ish so just looking for a few hours in the morning but thanks for the heads up!

  • Sean F.

    Anyone want to plan another Ortega ride soon?

    One-Piece question:

    I'm looking at the Cortech Latigo RR 1pc. The reviews have all been pretty good that I've seen and the price is within my range (near the top, but still within). I'm also checking our some Fieldsheer rufus and revo 1pcs tomorrow. These prices are between 240 and 500. the Cortech is going for 539.

    If anyone has some words of advice it'd be much appreciated!

    • Sean F.

      Isn't the rectifier and the VR the same thing??

      March 31, 2013

    • Will M.

      Theres a white connector behind the triple thats caused this problem for other monster owners before. Im going to probably need it replaced. Thanks for the input though guys.

      March 31, 2013

  • Sean

    Anyone want to go for a ride this Saturday? We can meet at the Dainese store and then head off somewhere.

    March 14, 2013

    • Nabil

      I am traveling. Otherwise would be there. Have fun!

      March 15, 2013

    • Sean F.

      I'd be up for a short ride - I'm heading down to SD around 2pm so as long as I'm back by 1:30ish I'm good. (I live a few blocks from the Dainese store)

      March 15, 2013

  • Nabil

    Anyone riding this weekend?

    March 8, 2013

    • Nabil

      Made it to rock store but assume missed you guys. Lets exchange cells, easier to coordinate. Garrett you have mine, start the chain. Cheers!

      March 10, 2013

    • Garrett and P.

      Any members feel free to call me with questions about rides or suggestions. [masked]-4829. Sorry Nabil, send me your number again. I looked for it Sunday but must have forgotten to store it.

  • David J.

    Just throwing this out there: Willow Springs has the new MWGP (replaces WSMC) this weekend so if you want to see some racing, come on out.

    March 10, 2013

  • Will M.

    Also, thanks Vic for the tip about Yellow Devil in LB. I checked it out yesterday and it's a pretty cool little shop.

    They had two new suits from a company called RSpeed. the suits were the same size (42), but were slightly different styling/fit. One fit pretty well, snug up top and snug on the lower body. I'm pretty concerned about the crappy quality zippers though. Anyone ever here/know anything about RSpeed? there is VERY little I could find online.

    March 8, 2013

    • My848 (.

      Ture, I got another Rev'it suit because I crashed 3 times in the same month same suit, same with the gloves...All the stitching held up, NO rips...amazing...Same with Sidi boots...sticking with what works...

      March 8, 2013

    • Mitchell C.

      Should be snug. You should not be able to stand up straight.

      March 8, 2013

  • Sean F.

    Great ride today and really nice to meet everyone! I'm planning on doing Superbike School on April 20th (http://www.superbikeschool.com/...­) if anyone else is interested. Hope to get another ride in with you guys again soon.

    1 · March 3, 2013

    • Sean

      I went to that school. It's great.

      March 7, 2013

    • Nabil

      I did the two-day level 1/2 course. Greatly improved my technique and confidence. Can't wait to do level 3/4. Need track days to practice in between though.

      March 7, 2013

  • Nabil

    Thanks David, FC for taking photos. I'll bring my gopro next time and try what Will suggests. Phil hope you're feeling better, nice collarbone shot!

    2 · March 4, 2013

  • David J.

    Good idea Will, and I hope to have some edited video up tomorrow...

    1 · March 4, 2013

    • Will M.

      Nice. Im looking forward to seeing it

      March 4, 2013

  • Will M.

    Next ride people should set their go pros to take pics at 30/60 second intervals so we might get some action shots. Nice photos so far tho!

    March 4, 2013

    • Garrett and P.

      Good call! Does my go pro hero 2 do that?

      March 4, 2013

    • Will M.

      Probably. My brother showed me his go pro on saturday (i think he's got the 3) and he can set his to take photos at chosen intervals so id expect 2 is capable. He rides a cbr 600 so ill probably invite him on a ride sometime, despite his non-duc ride.

      March 4, 2013

  • Sean F.

    Picked up some boots and track fairings tonight, looking forward to hitting the track soon with you guys!

    Both chevrons closed, there is one if you go west of freeway then left to the next intersection

    March 3, 2013

    • Mitchell C.

      Sorry guys. Had to pull off for a few minutes and lost y'all. Hung out at Lookout for 30, but figured you had already past. Great seeing everyone!

      March 3, 2013

    • Will M.

      That's a bummer Mitchell. Hopefully next time it goes more smoothly. We'll have to do a similar ride soon!

      March 4, 2013

    • Will M.

      Sounds like a I'll be looking for a 1 piece then. Thanks for all the input guys. And Garrett, I'll be sure to let u know if in interested in Ricondi gear!

    DUDE, WTF! Did anyone at least stop or went back to see if Phil was OK?

    March 3, 2013

    • June

      1 · March 3, 2013

    • Garrett and P.

      Lol, we did stop and count. Unfortunately it was after getting to the gas station! As Phil said we just gotta make sure we keep an eye on our members around us. Everything I said at the gas station and we will all get home safely!

    So Ortega to Palomar? idyllwild?

    February 28, 2013

    • Will M.

      Let's do Idyllwild. I've never been before. Plus, I think it's more of a middle ground for everyone than Palomar would be.

      February 28, 2013

    • Andrew

      agree

      February 28, 2013

  • Andrew

    im new to the group but i have a good ride. ortega and continue on the 74 to idlewild mountain and end up in desert. ive done this ride and i loved it. just a suggestion. if we start at the beach we can see beach, canyons, farmland, mountains, and desert. all in a few hours.

  • Garrett and P.

    Looks like 4 or 5 of us coming from LA so we may be there closer to 9:30am. It takes over an hour just to get to the gas station from the westside.

    February 28, 2013

  • Sean F.

    I'll be tentative on this one..depends on how much work I can get done fri/sat
