Yes, I'm a pretty regular weekend rider (usually can't do anything on a weeknight). There's a group of friendly folks at ocmoto.com that do regular rides, all makes and models. They're doing a "noobie ride" on 2/20 if you want to come out and meet folks. I use the same handle on that board.
I typically ride Santiago Canyon/Live Oak, or Carbon Canyon Road since both are easily accessible from Orange.
Where are you in OC? It's a pretty big place.
