Talking the Croissant is back! June 17 ACH-2 // June 18 Canyons?

Cleared to "really" ride as of that weekend!

I'm planning on ACH-2 on Saturday cuz I've only done it once, and it's my new man's fav road, and he'll be in town visiting woot woot!

Then, 18th, Sunday I thought it might be a good idea to go ride my crash site on Mulholland (although my stomach sinks even TYPING that I'm gonna do that... and I don't even particularly LIKE the road... gulp).

Who's coming?????!!!!!!!!!!!!! I miss you fockers!!!!!!!!

I'll probably roll ACH.

I'll ride up from Vegas to see what all the fuss is about

Did en EPIC ride last year during this time from Vegas, to ACH, to Mulholland to Malibu, back through ACH to Vegas...in ONE DAY.

Looking forward to doing it again with you guys over a more relaxed time period...

Think I need to get a new set of Pirelli SuperCorsa SP's though...my old tires are a little shot, ya think? LoL

On your new set make sure you keep an eye on your tire pressures and your rebound in the front. you have some pretty bad tearing.

Well, not a true sportbike per se...it's a Yamaha FZ-07, albeit set up like a track bike though

You can see that epic ride here:
