DECIDED TO MAKE THIS RIDE OFFICIAL AND MAKE A NEW POST

Meet at the Shell station on Foothill at the base of ACH at 8:00AM and depart at 8:30 sharp. We'll be riding the newly opened Angeles Crest Highway to Wrightwood, having HAM STEAKS and then heading back down. If you ride a Ducati or a KTM:D you are invited & encouraged to come along on this EPIC ride. If you've never ridden this road you are in for a treat like no other.

Heres a article from the LA Times to get y'all fired up.

See y'all Sunday morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can anybody tell me if the ACH to the 138 to the 15 is open?? I want to be able to go over to the 15 frwy and the map shows I can but I'm not sure that is open all the way this route...
Angeles Crest Highway will be open ALL THE WAY on Wednesday (May 20th) at noon. An historic moment unrepeated ever since 1956 when it was originally opened! - After the great winter of 2005 it was closed until now.

The experience of it opening is about to happen once again - it's loop time baby.

Have fun guys - as usual the crest is always better at the end of the day - less crowded, less cops, and a more sleep on the weekend.

Whoa!! Jake's going to ride? I might have to make this one...

I'll be on The Rack unless, by some miracle, my NCR parts arrive and get installed by Sunday. :rolleyes:

The Road condition is amazing
Especially from the Wrightwood side gate and into wrightwood the road is newly paved. AHHHH the fresh smell of NEW Asphalt!!!

HERE is a little preview

Da New Bridge



Sorry about the image quality. Camera phone y'know.
Nevertheless it gives you a taste of what you'll see

BTW
Only Two CHP vehicles were present.
I would think it will be considerably more this weekend.

I had much more fun relocating our ENTIRE design studio than you did riding ACH on opening day:( Nothing like moving three industrial sewing machines, 30 bankers boxes, 2 pattern tables, 8 cabinets and still not being finished to brighten one's day.
