SoCal Scura rally
« on: December 23, 2015, 07:02:42 PM »
Ok, Three Guzzis in the same area qualifies s a rally. Three Scuras is probably a Historic Occasion. (!)  :smiley:
Here's the (very loose so far) Plan.
Sometime between Christmas and New year, there will be three of us roaring around in the Santa Monica mountains. I know Richard Rodriquez has/had a Scura in this area (he'd leave us all).
Anybody else?
PM me.. I'm going for a reconnoiter tomorrow to get an idea of time.

Hard to say. That place that stores places and faces in my brain took a pretty good shot when I was a pup. Unless I see someone regularly, it's like I've never seen them. <shrug> Don't recognize any of the bikes, though.  :evil: They all S.D. guys?

For many years (decades) there's been a New Year's Day run in the Santa Monica mountains. Originally organized by the late Phil Hill. Leno is out every year either in a car (old Bugatti last year) or motorcycle (he was on a Vincent Dark Shadow in 2014). Always fun, and many rare vehicles.

Ok, there's a Union 76 station at the intersection of the PCH and Sunset. That's a couple of miles or so after the 10 dumps off on the PCH. I'm thinking be there at 10 on Monday. Wx forecast is for no precip and a high of 60.
Sound ok?
Tim, you mentioned Tuna canyon..

I understand it was built as a way for people that lived on top of the hill to take to get away from a forrest fire. <dunno>  We'll do it as the last road of the day. It's constant left right left right, and sometimes makes me motion sick if I go very fast.  :rolleyes: I'm getting soft in my old age.

It's one way, about a lane and a half wide. I'll meet you at the bottom..  :smiley:
I was going to show you Yerba Bueno, but the road surface has deteriorated way beyond being fun. Used to really like that road.
At any rate, we'll do about 100 miles or so of twisty goodness combined with some scenic stuff..

I don't think Richard's Scura is fully operational just yet but I know his Cali and Tiger are .. I can hit him up and see what he'll be up to. Get that old man to shake off the ole cobwebs ..  :bow: :bike-037:

That mix of sporty and scenic sounds FANTASTIC. I'll do the 100 miles of slab from San Diego in the morning. I'll be ready to roll away from PCH/Sunset at 10am. Eager to try the new-to-me roads - have only done a few in that area.

Who else is joining?  I suppose anyone who appreciates Scuras can join the Scura rally.  :grin:

I'll post it on V11LeMans.com too.

You lot are a bad influence on me. Scura, Le Mans, V11 Sport etc. is getting really tempting.

I remember that ride and the laborious taking of that image. I was about twenty feet to the left of the Le Mans lineup with the Guzzi fat girls (Bossa and Jackal)

[radguzzi], what kind of bags are on the Jackal in that image ?
Could be the timing chain or the kickstand spring - the suggestion is bunkum

I doubt I'll catch up to this next meeting, but I've been around that neighborhood before - it's a fun place.

It was fun chasing those guys - way out of my league, but their exhaust smelled really good, just like the old days.

Hey groundhog,
fI was wondering if Chuck knew any of the Southern-er Cal Guzzi Riders...  Plus I cannot recall all the names from folk I met that one awesome day of canyon riding...

Thanks for the great day and stepping up to be recognized. 



 They all S.D. guys?

For the most part, Temecula and South to San Diego...  Bill Ross and ground for sure.  What a great bunch of Guzzi Guys.

Yep, Dave Alfonso second, Bill Ross third. Embarrassingly I don't remember the names of the other guys except the guy on the end is Alfred. 
I would like to make it Monday but will not be able to.
