F41000S on Ortega! Our newest member?

I had a fantastic ride this morning...As tempting as the Tamburini was just staring at me as I suited up, alas, the ZX-7R was up in the rotation today, and I couldn't have her sit another week...Time to put some fluids through her. It was an overcast morning, but cool and clear at ground level, and actually relatively perfect conditions. My beloved Ortega Highway (CA74) has been undergoing some major surgery for the past couple of months, the construction working its way towards the Elsinore side from the Orange County side, so I thought I would go and check on the progress. The benefit is, the traffic has been dramatically reduced, and by staying on the Elsinore side, I was still able to avoid the construction, which is now as close as two miles from the Candy Store, and just to the West of it.

This meant I could enjoy the steep and flowing Elsinore side, and blast the carousels above the Candy Store a few times without nary a car in my way. As I was heading down to Elsinore to say goodbye for the day after several passes, I passed the unmistakebale stacked eyes of a red F4, heading up the hill towards the Lookout Cafe. I found a wide shoulder, clamped on the binders and spun her around to give chase.

I found the bike and its rider resting on a turnout, just below the restaurant. I pulled in and met the owner, Jesse, from Corona! That makes three MVs in Corona, that I am aware of: My Tambo, A Senna seen at Cars & Coffee, and Jesse's F41000S. We chatted for a moment by the side of the road, and he promised to log in and join the .net...



I snapped a picture for his girlfriend, suited up and headed home. As I promised you Jesse, the full resolution picture is in my "Kitchen Sink" album...

As I was rolling the Ninja back into her stall, I noticed the tell-tale signs of a good day on the hill, sticky Dunlops showing some nice texture! Looks like I ate all of my Chicken Strips like a good little boy!



Another amazing day on Ortega...I hope you each got in a good ride today, as well!

Griff

Thanks for explaining, I was wondering how you pick which bike to ride... First I though you tell them to pick a number 1-10, but now I understand, you have a chart For what it's worth, your zx-7R has a good owner... My chart would look like this


Mo: Tamburini
Tu: Tamburini
We: Tamburini
Th: Tamburini
Fr: Tamburini
Sa: Tamburini
Su: Tamburini

Hey Larry,
Sorry it took so long to join. I have seen this site before and look forward to checking it out as a member. Take care and maybe I'll see you at Ortega with your Tamburini.

New to the site but respectfully asking, who was Chris McCauley and what happened?

Welcome Jesse...Make yourself at home, kick off your shoes and stay a bit...I fixed my ride report to reflect your correct name...Through the helmets, 'Jesse' sounded like 'Jeffrey', whoops.

I look forward to another day on Ortega...Soon...and yes, next time it is the Tambo's turn...
