Before the ride I replaced the wretched OEM padded saddle with my trusty old Ideale tensioned saddle, which prompted my riding buddy to say, "Ah -- all the discomforts of home."

I am still royally pi$$ed that they destroyed the best hill climb of them all, Tuna Canyon, by making it one way downhill.

Other favorites of mine included the Hollywood hills, Franklin Canyon, Nichols Canyon.
Franklin Canyon is one of my favorites in that area. Some steep climbs around there! I also like Sunset Plaza, another twisty climb on quiet roads.
