Took a ride today down through the canyons to the coast, and took this picture at the top of Encinal Canyon Road with the Pacific Ocean in the background.
I'm fortunate in having so many good riding roads within a 100 mike radius. There are still a couple I haven't tried yet. The only drawback I've noticed is that they get a lot of motorcycle and sports car traffic on the weekends, but on weekdays they are great.When I was over there Ken I was really surprised how good some of those canyon roads are. It put a whole new perspective on the term ‘canyon carver’ !
Could have been my bike. I've ridden it at the last couple of Hanson Dam rides. Daniel Schoenwald here in Camarillo has one, which shows up at some of the So Cal rides. He had it at the Hanson Dam ride this year. He's the guy who has the large private bike collection and hosts a party at his place for the So Cal Norton club every year. There may be others, but he's the only one I know of.I think I have seen your bike on one of the So Cal Norton rides. Hanson Dam probably? Is there any other Modern Nortons in our area?
