ORANGE COAST CHAPTER #0322
APRIL 2010
Ojai Ride by Doreen Allmand
Ojai in March
(Where the heck is Ojai?)
Getting up early to get ready for an
Overnighter is not my favorite part of
riding, but I did it. We packed light,
one pair of pants, three shirts, jammies, boots and flip flops. It was a
cool morning, so we put on our
heated gear and assorted warm necessities in order to be comfortable. I
made us a quick breakfast, gulped a
little coffee, left food for the cat, and
we were off. Greeting everyone at
Tia Juana’s parking lot is like going to
a family reunion. Going around saying hi and hugging everybody and
feeling how good it feels to be part of
this family. Now I am glad I got up.
I think we might have had around 50
or 60 bikes riding out this morning. It
is pretty exhilarating to all take off
together and get on the freeway. I
wonder what is going through some
of the drivers minds in the cars on
the freeway. Mostly, I think they
seem to respect us and try to stay
out of our way. I turned the dial on
my heated jacket up a little bit and I
feel warm and safe and Life is Good!
We stopped a few times for gas and
bathroom breaks. When we descend
upon a poor little gas station/food
mart, it reminds me of a swarm of
bees (except much bigger and
louder) that just found a place to
land. But then our helmets come off
and we are all happily chattering and
laughing and talking as much as we
can before we get silenced again by
our helmets. And the poor people
who are there can relax when they
realize that we are just nice folks and
grandmas and grandpas having a
great time.
Finally, we pulled into a gas station
and we were told that we had 1 hour
to eat and to meet back to continue
our journey. We saw a great hamburger place that smelled awesome.
It had a lot of smoke coming out of it
that smelled like onions. I think a lot
of people went there. There was
also a Subway and a Taco Bell.
Steve and I decided that we would try
looking around the shopping center
behind the gas station. We found a
place called Giovanni’s Pizza. We
went in and were the only people in
the place. We ordered hot pastrami
sandwiches and were moaning over
how good they were. They were nice
and hot and the roll was toasty on the
outside and soft on the inside.
Yummm!
Everyone got back together and we
roared off again. Finally, we exited
the freeway and started enjoying the
beautiful scenery. I learned that
Spring is an excellent time to visit
central California, especially after all
of the rain we have had. It was so
green and gorgeous and so sparsely
populated and so country! Lots of
farms and farm houses. It seems so
(Continued on page 2)
April 2010, Page 1
Ojai Ride (continued)
(Continued from page 1)
different from the suburban sprawl where we come from, it is
hard to believe that this place is so close. You feel like you are
somewhere far, far away.
New Members Ride
There must have been some big race going on. We passed
lots and lots of people on ten speeds. I don’t know how they
do it. (Get a Harley Dude!)
Finally. we get to the twisties that Carlos was talking about.
The mountains and the scenery were sooo beautiful! Spring in
central California is awesome! Especially after all the rains.
Everything was so green and lots of flowers were starting to
bloom and it smelled great too! We kept going up and up and
around the mountains. First I saw that we were at 1000 feet,
then 2000, then 3000 and it was steadily getting colder. At 4 or
5000 feet, my feet and legs were getting pretty cold. Steve told
me it got down to around 38 degrees. Thank God for my
heated gear. I kept turning the thermostat higher and higher. I
think if we hadn’t been moving so fast, steam would have
probably been coming off my body. I felt really sorry for the
guys that didn’t have it. I know, I would really be suffering without it! Finally, as we descended from the mountains, it got
warmer and warmer the further down we rode. We all pulled
into what looked like a small city park for a bathroom break.
Everyone was talking and chattering about what a great ride it
was. Some were talking about how cold it got. We had 1 more
hour to go until we reached our hotel. We all pulled out into the
street and saw someone’s sunglasses tumble past us.
Whoops! We finally pulled into Ojai and what a site we must
have been. We all parked and jumped off our bikes and
headed to the office to check in. Some went for the traditional
hot tub party. All I wanted was a shower and to lay my head
down and go to sleep, and that is what I did. Of course, I woke
up in time for dinner. Some of us walked over for sushi. It
was yummy. On the way back, we saw a bunch of people at
the restaurant by the hotel. We walked up to the window to
smile and wave. I think we scared some patrons. Sorry!
We walked back to our hotel and said good night. In the morning, we got up early so we could go out for a good breakfast.
We went to Carrows. Our hotel also had a poolside continental
breakfast and some people did that. Finally, we all lined up for
our ride back home. We headed back up the mountains and
the twisty roads before we hit the freeway. It was nice and cold
again! When we got somewhere around Pasadena, we pulled
into a gas station and said goodbye and hugged everyone up.
Until we meet our fine biker friends again. This was the longest
ride I had ever done, over 550 miles. I am really proud of myself. And by the way, I highly recommend rides to Ojai. It was
awesome!

A Little Bit of Common Sense
If you understand a little bit of business, like a basic business plan,
then you understand why the Harley Owners Group was created: to
market the Harley-Davidson Motor Company! So, it shouldn’t be a
surprise to anyone that a H.O.G. Chapter is also a marketing arm for
a Harley-Davidson dealer. Aside from the fact that a dealer sponsors
a chapter as a marketing arm outside of their showroom, a chapter is
sponsored by a dealer to allow “their clients” enjoy their motorcycles
in a fun and safe family oriented environment. You, as a chapter
member are the dealer’s clients; and the rides, the fun, and the good
times are all designed with you in mind. We, the chapter officers and
the dealer, have a positive working relationship that makes it all work
for you.
On another note, remember that the dealer’s best interest is to provide you with service that keeps your bike in good shape, and gives
you incentives to buy products there as well. While no situation is
perfect, if you ever feel that your needs are not being met, don’t walk
away! Let somebody know if there is a problem. That is the only way
they can fix what doesn’t work. Their goal is to have you as a satisfied customer, a customer that will return time and again. If you are a
chapter member that comes from a different geography, consider
supporting our sponsoring dealer when you can; after all, they are
making it possible for you to have some fun.
This by no means is a sales pitch but a business reality. We need
one another. What a better way to have a win-win situation!

Riding as a Group
When riding with a group of
bikers, it’s important to remember we should ride differently than when we ride alone. When you’re riding
by yourself, the ride is much simpler. You only have to
make decisions for yourself. You can change your
route instantly from the one you planned, you can stop
when you want to stop and you can go when you want
to go. The only person you have to consider is you.
Riding alone may make traveling easier, but what if
something goes wrong with your bike? What if you’re
stopped at some incredible vista point and you want to
share the experience?
Some of the advantages to group riding are you have
others with you if your bike breaks down and you have
people along to share the experience. One important
thing we need to remember when riding in a group is
the group is not composed of riders with equal skill and
experience therefore a suitable safe pace is set for the
group. If the route takes the group onto narrow, twisty
roads, each rider should ride at his or her own pace.
More aggressive riders should be in the front of the
group, average riders or those wanting to motor along
enjoying the scenery in the middle, and slower riders
toward the back, riding at a comfortable speed. Regardless of where you choose to ride, never feel pressured
to ride faster than your skill level just to avoid getting
lost. Maps and road captains are provided to make the
ride enjoyable without creating frustrating situations.
There’s something about motorcycling that can bring
out the competitive spirit in people. It’s easy to get
stampeded into riding above your skill level. You think,
“I don’t want anyone to think I’m a wuss by not keeping
up with the others”. That anxiety is not what anyone
needs on a ride because it takes the fun out of it and
can create a dangerous situation. If you aren’t sure
where you should ride in the group, talk to any Road
Captain prior to the start of the ride.
The motto of the Harley Owners Group® is to Ride and
Have Fun. I hope that each of you will come on as
many chapter rides and participate in as many chapter
events as you can fit into your schedule so we continue
creating lasting memories that only happen because we
ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

Milton’s Deli Ride by Andi Quinlan
Sunday morning brought “fog on the five” (brrr) prior to our arrival at Capo Playhouse and sunshine. Heated gear remained
necessary on and off. A few “other halves” were absent
(sleeping in were we?). Forty bikes strong and new faces.
New Members Ride
The big news of the day was Del receiving his gold braid with
Vickie proudly buttoning it in place after 1st placing it on his
head. Halo for Del?
The big guy gave the standard pre-ride spiel with Ron chirping
in, please don’t run the road captains down. “Someone” from
the group chirped back, don’t get in our way and we won’t. But
… , he did and we did (almost), with much arm flapping by
Ron. Members apparently not used to our protocol of “lining” up
and exiting in the order you arrive came up to the front very
quickly and chaos began, with the bungee-boys and others cut
off. Lots of words spoken over the roar of the bikes. Ron was
in the middle with bikes everywhere, vying for their rightful
spots in line. I sense change in the air, aside from it now being
Springtime.
Off we went to Del Mar via the Ortega Hwy with nary a break
light from this writer’s vantage point, except for twice down hill
by yours truly. Great leading big guy. I’ll follow you anywhere.
A few crotch rockets startled and interrupted our procession,
opting to pass at not the most opportune times but fortunately
made it. Crazy males!
Just one scheduled gas stop at Temecula which not many took
advantage of for topping off as it was anticipated to be only a
152 mile ride. We all visited instead and some gear came off,
though not much. Lining up was again interesting. Not for the
hesitant, one must hold ones own.
Wonderful 92 mile route and countryside to Milton’s Deli, with
only one “missed turn off” by one of our illustrious Steves. A
skillful u-turn got him back with the group. I’ll never figure how
some get off their bikes and inside the restaurants so quickly.
Someone should videotape the maneuverings sometime. Had
good company with Tom and Bob and Lee (missed you Linda)
et al for lunch (breakfast for some). Finished early and we left
early, leaving no time for my one on one interviews, particularly
with the new members. Again, musical bikes in lining up to
leave. This, however, enabled this writer to meet Harris, a new
member with a spanking new H-D trike and riding only since
January. So now we are 2 trikes strong.
Ride home was uneventful, straight up the 5 with decently moving traffic, still somewhat cool. Home around 2:00. Good Ride.
Good Food. Good People. Happy Trails. dlxlady
