This one sounds like real trouble. You're going to need plenty of legal advice before this thing is over. As your attorney I advise you to rent a very fast car with no top. And you'll need the cocaine. Tape recorder for special music, Acapulco shirts... Get the hell out of LA for at least 48 hrs.
This blows my weekend...'cause naturally I'll have to go with you.
And we'll have to arm ourselves... to the teeth!

Great Red Shark? Check.

We have to do this thing, and soon, no matter how pointless or self-destructive.

You can turn your back on a person, but never turn your back on a D/S ride, especially when its waving a razor sharp hunting knife in your eye.

Re: Soft Road Ascent to Tehachapi- Comanche Point Road

Well Groucho, your report inspired me to investigate further. Ended up riding the entire Comanche Point Road on my FJR! It was a beautiful day with perfect temperatures. The FJR handled things pretty well going uphill. I suspect that the downhill run could be a real challenge!








Saw two bulls with their horns locked. Later saw a small herd of elk up on the ridge.

Dood. You're hardcore.

Get a little sketchy for you between Gate 1 and Gate 2?

Re: Soft Road Ascent to Tehachapi- Comanche Point Road

Very nice report Bob, I really liked the way you blended the maps, narrative and pics. Your GSA is looking awesome, great loop, the CA green Spring window is now.

Here is a fun loop around Parkfield. The road to the north of Parkfield has amazing views at the top and the wild flowers should be out in force. The cafe in Parkfield has the best burgers.
