Well I'm just a little late to answer, but I'm ridin' again, man! I need some open road thrown my way!
So glad to hear you are all back and ready to ride! I'll keep you informed of the ride's I'm going to here in the next month or so.
Funny, but I was looking at this yesterday...
The Angeles crest hwy would be a good ride, but for me, I'd like to stretch it out a little and extend the loop up 138 & 18. Go by silverwood & arrowhead up to big bear.
I wouldn't hear too much complaining from the wife if we took a long weekend in the bear. Its a little bit of a haul for me to get down there, but it sounds like fun.
We may have to plan a nice route that would be worth you coming all this way for. Throw up some Google Maps of route ideas, and I'll do the same. Maybe we can get a few people committed to it (I know some people from another local forum as well that I can ask to come).
