Last weekend, I met up for the first time with the SoCal Sport Bikers Meetup group and we did a long run through Angeles Crest National Forest, on the Angeles Crest Highway and Big Tujunga. I was really impressed at the quality of the riders and the way the group was run will feature in an upcoming blog post on group rides as it really set a great standard. Even though I don’t ride a sports bike and am only on a Versys 650, I’m experienced enough to hold my own alongside the faster, bigger bikes thanks to years of experience and techniques I teach as part of my rider courses.
Towards the end of the ride, some of the quick guys went ahead on their own. I joined them :-) It was the best part of the day running with a couple of unleashed Ducati Panigale’s, a Ninja and a couple of Aprilia’s :-) I didn’t realize at the time but the guy directly behind me, Paul Kaopuiki, had his GoPro running and uploaded the video (thanks Paul!) so, sit back and enjoy a high speed run through Angeles Crest National Forest with the quickest guys of the SoCal Sports Bikers meetup!
