A local 6 Member and Officer was riding the Angeles Crest (2) Highway this past weekend, and passed the word along that you will find a beautiful road and beautifuly scenery, and an abundance of gravel and rocks on the road.   Another hazard that I noticed there and on Palomar Mountain is that if you ride there on weekends,  be prepared to deal with the Crazies passing you on the outside, inside, wrong side, and under you.  The CHP will be doing extra enforcement this coming Saturday on Angeles Crest,  as noted in this press release. 
 
> > The campaign is in response to a series of fatal collisions on the mountainous pass involving motorcyclists. Between 2007-2009, there were 10 motorcycle-involved fatalities and 195 injuries on the corridor, according to the Highway Patrol. 
> > And state transportation officials launched an investigation earlier this summer into the deaths of three motorists who were killed in separate collisions within weeks of the reopening of the lower portion of the Angeles Crest Highway in June. 
> > Much of the investigation would involve evaluating speed, location, vehicle type, weather and road conditions.
