We've got some OC Monster riders.
I'm in the Riverside area, next time you are considering riding out this way, post and I might be able to show you some new roads.
I'm not a big fan of Ortega Hwy., but I ride it now and then. Palomar Mtn. down SD way is very nice.
Put up a post the next time you're going on a ride, chances are good people here would join you. Feel free to post & join in on any of the rides here.
