Coco and Greg,
I am 90% sure that I am headed to the Rockers vs Mods event in San Diego Sunday. Check out my post in the Rallies & Events section. I would be leaving from Dana Point. Riding PCH, ride through state park and hoping to be allowed to ride through Pendelton instead of the freeway. Doing the Modern ride at 10 and then heading back in time to beat sunset.

Let me know if you or anybody else is interested.

946 in the wild
I saw my first 946 in the wild.

Laguna Beach
6:15 pm
Headed south on PCH. At the intersection of PCH and Broadway.
Black


I was filtering to the front of the queue on Broadway waiting for the light to turn green and then head south myself. I headed south when the light turned green hoping to catch up to it. i drove down PCH all the way to Capo Beach and home. Never did.
