Our meeting at the Starbucks/Best Buy parking lot on Chapman goes well and things move right along for a quick start as this will be a long ride. It is expected to be at least 340 miles and temperatures could be from a bit cool to fairly hot. The weather while on a motorcycle is much more of a concern than in a car due to the nature of riding on an open motorcycle-windows are so over rated. There will be two groups of 10 or 11 motorcycles in each group. Some riders have passengers so the number of people total is closer to 30.
Our second gas stop and I do fill up.
Lunch was interesting as they had limited staff, but service seemed better than initial reports from Johney about the poor service the week before, plus Johney bought my lunch. Everybody had a good time and weather was cool enough not to make me delirious. I mean how much can you write about while holding onto a motorcycle.
Arrive back at El Torito for final session and then home.
