  1. Yes. Angeles Crest Highway, AKA Hwy 2. We live near Wrightwood, ride it most weekends when weather permits. Newcombs Ranch is about halfway, (40miles) typically stop for a leg stretch and water break. Unfortunately they have not reopened after COVID... If you continue the whole length of ACH you come out in La Canada (Los Angeles). about 80 miles of canyons, 160 miles round trip. Great little stretch of road for day rides, and a quick way to cool down during the summer heat.
  2. Quick edit of some clips from ACH last weekend. New drone, still getting used to using... will get more footage using it this weekend.
  3. Sorry for asking this... but how do I use the rebates listed above? I have never purchased tires online are these for a specific website? I have always purchased from local shops.

  5. Welcome! Congrats on the new bike @FJDaddy
  6. Couldn't help myself from creating the visual when you said, " one knee replacement away from a hi-viz aerostich"...
  7. There was a little congestion. I have definitely seen worse. Mostly high school kids in their "Fast and Furious" cars. I think leisurely weekend drives may still be out of budget for a lot people right now. I am sure that as temps raise in the valley more people will start to seek the cool mountain temps.
  8. We wanted to continue on through the Mountain range but ran out of light. Plans had been to continue up the backside of Idyllwild and come out in Anza. @betoneyLet me know if you make a trip down here, could plan a ride for sure.
  9. Took advantage of the recent loosing up on the stay home orders or as I prefer to reference it: "House Arrest". Wife and I took a nice ride yesterday on Highway 18 from Lake Silverwood, along the Rim of the World to Big Bear Lake, and then dropped down Highway 38 to Redlands. One hundred miles of twisty mountain road that climbs to about 8500 feet at its summit. Perfect temperature. We took a few pictures along the way. Finally had some businesses open, however, it is still weird out. It is surreal seeing everyone in masks, people jump if you accidentally get to close and plexiglass barriers at every store register. It is like the biggest and longest game of cooties ever played!
  10. I actually kind of the like the burnt orange too. It is different. Would definitely need to put dingos on the front forks to cover the gold.
  11. Thank you. It is a small section probably not a huge need to go with an 80/20. I guess I like the look of the more aggressive tires, even though it would likely be over-kill. Either way thank you for the reply @betony
  12. I am In need of new tires. I live about 3 miles out on rough washboard, with soft sand and gravel patched roads. If I had to break down my riding into percentages I would say, 10% dirt, 50% canyon carving & 40% Freeway/ Urban. Does anyone have any advice on tires. I am looking into the above mentions. I need a tire that grips in dirt and can hold a corner yet still be confortable for long distance riding. Sort of an All-terrain tire.
  13. I agree a great stretch on the CA Coast. We first went to the Wedge on Balboa Peninsula. Beach was closed, so we headed north. Huntington and Sunset were both open. I bet that was a great area to go to Highschool. I was closer to Oceanside, so my childhood was spent at South Jetty and Carlsbad. Would never know there was a pandemic, in Huntington. looked like spring break (except all the parking lots were roped off - no parking). I saw only a few people wearing masks and nobody was practicing social distancing. Brought me back to the "good ol' days" way back in 2019". I think they just closed all the OC beaches this week. However, SD is still open.
  14. Unfortunately, after researching my helmet and new visors, I discovered my current helmet is not pinlock compatible. I do have a chin skirt, I will remove it and see if it helps any. Also will look into the Invision insert option. Thank you for the advise!
  15. I am also curios about the clarity. I where glasses too, so This would be 3 layers of plexi. If they are easy enough to install, I might keep the pinlock in my visor bag and only use it when the conditions require.
