4th Annual Topanga Canyon Ride

Los Angeles, California - January 4-5 2003

We had about 30 Vmaxes and 40 bikes in all show up for the 2 day event just northwest of Los Angeles in the Santa Monica mountains. Weather was absolutely beautiful and the riding was second to none. 

Greg Spindel did a great  job of arranging the food and rides for this event - thanks Greg for another outstanding event!
