We're really sorry for your unfortunate relocation. Regrettably sometimes we have to do things that are deplorable. Make the best of your situation and we mourn your plight.

Yeah I got this bike because I was putting more miles getting TO the canyons on my canyon machine than I was banking back and forth, so FZ9 is the name of my new best buddy. Burbank is doable. So far I've been switching off between Azusa Canyon and Mulholland / Santa Monica / Malibu. When I get these hand guards I'm cool with anywhere though
Dantheman you would have been grinning ear to ear to see people reaction at the rock store last Sunday. Ten people swooped on me while parking:
Is that the Yamaha triple? Is it as light as they're saying? How's the torque?
Barely had time to breath between puffs plus I'm cracked up on adrenaline getting off this jet aircraft.

I'm in the same boat as you, hoping to do my service (or have it done, gotta check the warranty) before this weekend. You choose where we go, early Sunday morning is best for my traffic-induced stress disorder :p

Dan I'm cruising up to the Santa Monica mountains again early tomorrow morning. If you wanna cruise shoot me your number. I'd be down for a nice leisurely sesh on PCH around sunset, but we might need to stop by Main in Huntington to get a new pair of shades

Sounds fun! My canyon experience is limited but that would be awesome. When are you planning the ride? I will join if I am free.

When is still up in the air for me.

I'm thinking about early Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. What does your schedule look like this coming week?
