Welcome Nick. I'm in SoCal (Laguna Beach) too. There is a big race at Glamis on 3/11-3/12 you should come out, there will be a lot of sick high HP bikes out.
If you make it out stop by and say whats up. We will be in wash #4, Ill be the only guy on a honda in the middle of a ton of raptors hno:I'm actually going to be in San Diego that week and headed back north on the 11th, I might have to swing east and check it out. Thanks!
