...."Palomar Tuesdays" is actually designed to fit in with my days off. I used to make a full day of riding when I was still involved with Zorba's Bike Night. Palomar early in the morning, get home around 5pm, shower, over to Zorba's by 7pm, then up to Arrowhead for an evening ride with a few friends (sometimes all the way over Big Bear down into Redlands), and then to Starbucks for a White Cap Mocha . Wednesdays are usually for the family .

On another note big dawg, I can't wait to get the forks and other few mods done to the Baby Blade for racing. I'll need to bug you for setting the suspension up again ....wanna be my pit beotch too ...

I'm with you on the ride to Arrowhead (and on through Big Bear as well). One of my favorites long ago and far away . . .

Since my mom passed away last year, I have quite a few old photo albums that I just haven't "gotten around" to looking through. When I was out there before she died, I did see a few shots taken on the Crest, Wrightood and Arrowhead. Once I can get it together to go through some of that stuff, I will post a few pics.

Sorry to hear about "MOM."

Can't wait to see 'em.

Don't know what the traffic was like up there then, but now it's pretty crazy to ride in the daytime. Hwy 18 is blocked again for major repair.

The traffic back then (67 through 71) consisted of a few pickup trucks with campers, an occasional Harley or Indian and a couple of Norton 750's during the week. I used to run my Superhawk until I began riding for Kawasaki, then I ran a somewhat "breathed on" H1.

You have any of the Kawasaki Team pics around?

Like I said, my mom had all of that stuff and hopefully I can dig some of it up out of 85 years of snapshots.
