Great Mulholland Ride Today!

Recommended Posts

Nothing special about the ride, but felt great! I guess the one thing that might be special is I saw Jay Leno's Kawi H2. That thing is so awesome. Oh and he's pretty cool too.
 
The ride consisted of the beginning of the east end of Mulholland highway, quick stop at Kings gillete ranch, then all the way to the restaurant right before the "snake". That's where I saw the H2/Jay. Then turned around to las virgenes rd, south to pch. Subway sandwich break. Then back up las virgenes rd, back to Mulholland going east, then went home. Weather was perfect, just perfect  :D
 
This was also the first time I tried out wearing ear plugs. At first it was a little odd, but as soon as I got on the freeway they made a huge difference. I thought they'd hinder my riding somehow, with hearing less and all. And it's true you don't hear as much, but it actually increased my focus because I realized all the wind noise is way more distracting. And when I had them at quick picture stops at Mulholland and it kinda made the experience better. Everything was quiet with the beautiful views ahead. Today was awesome!!!
 
Here some pics:

Glad to see you enjoyed the ride out there! The good part is that the road is challenging enough in some parts to want to ride again and again. The scenery will bring you back as well.

@pgeldz if you do come, let me know and head on over there with you
 
@minner I try to avoid the twisty parts lol. When I went I stopped at the rock store, right before the snake. I've been down that road before on my previous bikes, but I'm just not interested anymore this time around. The main reason I'm going to these places is for the scenery :)
 
@rowdy yeah it was very relaxing and fun!

If you guys like the snake, check out RNickeyMouse. This guy captures some great moments from out there.

Haha, by great, you mean... great good and bad moments.  
I met him up at the snake. Dude is pretty cool. 
 
 

Yeah ha... He get's some gnarly wrecks too, mostly low sides.  He has a vid on a FZ-07 nearly losing it; just shows how not sporty the stock suspension really is.

damn my bad I just saw this! Did you make there already? BTW the way I'm confused, are you going to ACH or Mulholland? The rock store is at Mulholland... Which is not close to ACH lol. Different mountain ranges

@roadrunner my trip was bitter sweet.  When I was at the base of the mountain I actually PM'd you my phone number so we could meet up but I was having issues with my cell service up there and I don't think it went through, as I don't even see it in my sent PM's box.
 
However my trip didn't go so well. Didn't mean to hi-jack your thread so I posted it here
