The joy comes in riding when possible. Currently I don't get a lot of free time so little riding. Being retired I used to get out a lot and make a couple neat loops around the San Gabriel mountains during the week when the working stiffs were stuck in their cubicles. Lot of the time weekend rides suck because the rest of the world is out and about.
There is a facebook forum for V Strom riders. V-Strom DL1000 & DL650 & DL250
It's not just Orange Co or even the US. good pictures though

An OC riding group could be fun. My wife hates it when I take solo trips anywhere very far.

How about the entire south bay area of socal? San Fernando valley to south oc would open a lot more options I'd think

The group I had camped with was from all over general LA/Orange area. Some guys don't mind riding a bit to a starting point.
Freeways can really be a bother though.

Had a chance to experience the Aquarium in Monterey during an exclusive event. Wine and dessert tasting after hours.
A small group had the whole place to ourselves for a couple hours. That allowed for a pleasurable visit.
I spent a few weeks at Fort Ord back in the 60's so it's not my favorite area of the state.
Is there a race this weekend to attend?

I would join and follow even though Im not in Cali.
Dont get down there as much as I would like with my kid living in San Gabriel, but I have been known to jump on the bike and ride down for lunch hitting La Crest both ways.
Back issues are my only limiter since retiring, but the occasional lunch run is worth a week of pain afterwards ;-)

You need a prescription for medical marryjuwanna like a lot of my friends.
Oh, wait, it's all legal in Cali now isn't it?
or maybe like the good feet store you can get an orthotic for your ass to relieve the pain?
Give us a mention when you make the taco run.

Legal here in Nevada for medical and pleasure but its an unclear line of if it will effect my concealed carry so I will not partake.
Also under a pain med contract with pain management and get drug tested every 3 months and Mary Jane is one thing tested for to make sure Im not using and either not using pain meds or not selling them.
SO no MJ for me, sure would like some good cookies or brownies
Then I'll need tacos!
Will be watching this post and may be an occasional meet up.
Maybe you guys ride up and meet us Vegas folks at Furnace Creek around New Years time.
