9MOON is at Sherman Oaks, he may be interested as well.

One of our radiology techs ( Ducati motorcycle owner) states the old Topanga Canyon Road has a lot of hair pin turns.

i don't envision this being as "spirited" a canyon run as our hwy 39 run was. typically this road on sundays has a lot of bikes and a handful of cops. crashes and or tickets are not uncommon...

as far as a meet spot, i think there is a little shopping center at hwy 1 (pch) and kanan dume road. that might be a good spot...

I know a great route

I used to live in that area. Too bad I'm on the East Coast now.

TIP:

You can meet on PCH and Kanan. But don't take Kanan. Instead, Head North on PCH to Mulholland, just past Leo Carillo State Beach. This is by far my favorite road, and don't be surprised to find yourselves amongst Ferarris and SLR bad-boys looking to push their limits. When you get to Westlake Blvd, take a left.

Westlake Blvd gets very twisty but you can then make two choices:
1. Continue down Westlake Blvd to the 101 - the road gets wider when you pass through the hills
2. Make a left on Potrero Road and head through Hidden Valley. Hidden Valley is perfect country for an SLK.

Now, if I were on Potrero Rd, I would go stright through Potrero Cyn and end up on Lewis Rd in Camarillo. For a unique experience, head to the Camarillo airport and hit up their cafe for lunch. You're bound to have some good food and enjoy all the richer folk stopping in via their charter to grab some grub.

The Rock Store is great, but the pigs on the highway ruin the freedom of this country.

When you leave Camarillo, take Las Posas (two fwy exits west) to PCH. You can go flat-out, unrestricted on that strech... there's never a pig on the road. Take PCH all the way back home. When you pass Trancas, you're back in cop country. Always do the speed limit on PCH (with the exception of Camarillo).

Take the road less traveled. Take photos and share them with us. I wish I could join y'all.

280Lady, if you're located in SoCal, you're more than welcome to join us this Sunday. If anyone else (R170 and R171) is interested in coming, please feel free to chime in. I forgot who it was that lives in Yorba Linda.

Sorry you cant make it 280SLK.

I edited the first post with tentative times, places and routes. The more feedback the better. Thanks to in2dwww for ideas.

I figure about a 3 hour ride.
Tom, you're "da' man" when it comes to planning routes. :tu:

Thank you Etyu, but I cannot.
That's okay, there will probably be other driving events in the future.

Tom, since we're coming from the south LA area to the Rock Store in Malibu and then doing the drive north to the Camarillo area and then back home. Would a full tank of gas/petrol be enough (18.5 US gal)? I don't think we'll cover more than 300 miles round trip. What do you think?
