Hi, looking for riding partners from so cal area. I'm an older experienced AT owner. Finished a solo 9200 mile ride to Alaska in June 18. have made several trips to Utah and am in the planning stages of a Continental Divide Trail ride in July 19. like to do 3-4 day trips- like camping.


I'm also experienced in motorcycle maintance and custom accessory fabrication. Looking for others to "hang" with. I'm retired so have plenty of time.






Thanks Tom

Hi Tom, I live in Reseda and I completed a ride to Canada last year....
I use my AT to commute to work, and I do some weekend ride with some friends.
Keep in touch.

Hernan.

sounds good. let me know if you want to get together for a shorter day ride - if it ever stops raining.


I commuted by motorcycle every day for 37 years- i HATE the traffic.


Ride safe Thanks Tom

Hey Tom my name is Wes and I am in Phoenix. I would love to meet up for rides either in and around So Cal or if you make it out to AZ or further east.

I am however, unfortunately, not retired. So I will probably not be making many 9,200 mile trips to Alaska... As much as I would like to.

Hi Wes, Don't get to the Phoenix area often but would like to ride that area- let me know if you would like to put something together. Will be in Prescott on Feb 2, for some "family" stuff- not much time to "ride" on that trip - I also have property at Lake Powell/Page area and get there a couple times a year.


Would be great to show you around my area if you get a chance.


Thanks Tom

Hi Tom , I bought my A T because I like doing backcountry discovery routes. I’m also from the SoCal area. A lot of those routes are technical Jeep trails. If you’re interested in some challenging off road rides let me know ✌????

I'm in Long beach myself. You feel like changing my tires for me? :)

I find it much easier just to have them done. The Mitas E-07 that i put on have really stiff sidewalls. At one time i had a No-Mar changer- still way too much work......


Thanks Tom

Thanks Tom

Hi Tom, I am just down the 241 in Rancho Santa Margarita. I am interested in some day rides as work is what I am stuck doing. Working on getting used to this bike and have done a rally or two. The rain and fires have cramped my desire to hop over saddleback and back for weekend lunch trips. Came off a 450x to enjoy longer rides and loving it so far. PM if interested.

just last week did Ortega Hwy to south divide rd- up the mountains for a great view of the Elsinore "super bloom"


down into Elsinore for some tacos then tried to get to the 15- What a nightmare.


let me know when you have time to go somewhere.


Thanks Tom

I'm in Socal (LA/OC borderline).

I'm not retired and I'm an ADV noob.

Once I finish my installation project, I plan on doing a run to Moab Utah...seems very noob friendly.
