Okay, now for my favorite part of the ride, where to meet for breakfast. My suggestions would be in not any particular order;

Cafe 126 in Ventura off Wells Drive and the 126

Rabalais Bistro in Santa Paula

Open to suggestions...

I know, I think you will be ok. The permits and gate code will be left in the after hours box at the ranger station in Ojai for us to pick up Sunday. We normally would have until tomorrow at 4:30 to have done this but they are closed tomorrow for the holiday. I think there main concern is to limit the amount of people / vehicles back there at one time. You should be fine.

Dang, wish I had time available on Sunday for this one. I haven't been on the big bike in the dirt for a couple of weeks.

99% sure the BMW. The ranger says the road is in good shape, hard packed no ruts to speak of.

So 9am for breakfast at Cafe 126 just off Wells road and Hwy 126.

https://www.yelp.com/biz/cafe-126-ventu ... 8direct%29

I will be heading out the 126 from Castaic around 8:15 if anyone wants to ride out to the cafe.
I hope to be done with breakfast around 9:45 or so and head up to the Ojai Valley and pick up the permits from the Ojai ranger station by 10:30.
From there we will head up to the Rose Valley campground entrance to Nordhoff Ridge Road.

Great ride guys. We need to do that again soon. I say we pack in some chairs and do lunch on the flat area at the end of the road west of the lookout tower.
