Oh, you Pasa-hogan scum TOO! I was up there today. Cal trans is chip sealing the far side toward Wrightwood. I picked up a poky something and had a flat. Yay for worms and glue. Rode home OK. Now I search tire tomorrow when the stores are open.
What time you wanna be at the Shell station Friday?

It shouldn't be too bad on that side of the crest. Most folks ride up from the other side. I think they usually only work on the weekdays anyway. Won't go Friday. I posted this and then another group I ride with posted the exact same route for Saturday. Maybe I'll do both. You wake up too early notacop. Beuatyrest is good.

Would be great to head up there with you again before I trade the Strom for an ST. I wish I wasn't busy helping my brother move over the weekend. Have fun up there!

Mike,
the traffic isn't bad, there are just a few spots of the "follow me" car. Minor delays.
The temps were decidedly cooler at 7-8 thousand feet.
What is too early for youse guys?

I got a new Battle Wing at Cycle Rider, M&B for 140$. Rode to Newcombs to scrub it in yesterday.
