Any So Cal'ers going to be doing this run, this weekend?

I am thinking about hitting it up. I wanted to do it last year, but something came up, and I couldn't make it.

It's put on by- Bikers For Education to benefit youth education and
the children of our fallen American military heroes.

Another great cause.

It starts in Fallbrook, and runs around Northern San Diego, and South Riverside. Ends at Bates Nut Farm, with food, and LIVE music, and..... They even serve you breakfast for those that like to eat in the AM.

Post up if your thinking about hitting it up. Ill know by this afternoon.

Its looking like I will have Saturday free, so if anyone else wants to do it, I'd go.
Was going to go with The wife, and Ronnie + whoever, but turns out they all have plans, so I be a Free Bird this weekend! woohoo!

Depending on the route, I'm sure there will be gas along the way. Bates Farm is kinda up in the hills, so I am not sure if there is gas up there. I havent been there in YEARS. Im sure you will want to gas up toward the end of the ride.

It looks like I still have tomorrow free (going to do my yard work tonight when I get home!!!)

Are you still down for this? If so, maybe we can meet in the early AM (7:15ish), then cruise into Fallbrook. Maybe hook up in Temecula, get gas, then cruise?

Temecula is 2 exits past the fallbrook exit, so a little out of your way, but......I dont know of anywhere to hook up in Rainbow, that sells fuel.

Not at the Mission exit, which is the exit to go to Fallbrook. There is only the one farther south @ the 76/Pala exit, and the one right there in Temecula off the 79. There are 2 station there.

If you want to meet in Temecula @ the Mobil that would be cool. When you get off the 79/Indio exit, go back (left) under the freeway and the gas station is right there. We can jump back on the 15S 2 exits to Mission, and we are good.

Let me know if that works for you.

Yeah, he woulda had ya for lunch! I told you to go jump on his back while he wasn't looking! THAT would have been funny!

Had a good ride. It was about 90 miles for the Poker run. Road out in Valley Center Escondido area, and out toward the HideOut, then back to Valley Center again. There is some NICE riding back in there!! It was kinda spendy, but it went for a good cause. They fed you breakfast, and lunch, so that was actually pretty cool.

I didnt get much sleep last night, so I was pretty tired by the time we left the Rally, and still had about another 60 miles to ride to get home.

Basing110 Nightster ir pretty sweet deal. He has it set up nice. I think I like them there bikes. Met another older dude that had a nightster, but poor guy was tall, and the ride was kicking his butt, so he had to bail early. I hope he gets it set up for him to enjoy.

Good hanging with you Dan, and maybe hook up with the rest of the SoCal'ers on one of the next rides.

A Few pics from today-
