Took a very nice 116 mile tour from Laguna Hills to the main divide off Ortega south through Cleveland National Forest to Tejena ranger station and through the new homes built In the area since I was last there.  Road is all paved now but poorly maintained. Returned through Elsinore.  Stopped at the local watering hole "Hells Kitchen" and had some fun with the other riders.  They kept asking what was that square black box hanging down the fork leg. ( California charcoal filter required here ) I had some fun with them and very seriously told them that it was the Nitrous Oxide box and it give me enough horsepower to pass almost anything on the road.  Great day and love the C5........

One of my favorite riding spots, but usually go a bit farther south to DeLuz, but get there by riding usually Clinton Keith and Grand.
I haven't done Killen, is it paved all the way? Dirt and my cafe racers aren't the greatest of buddies!

The road is paved but very poorly maintained with lots of pot holes and dirt over the pavement.  I was riding between ten and twenty miles per hour most of the way.  Not recommended for cafe racers if you enjoy comfort.  I have no idea why I posted this on a non-enfield site-- Brain fade I guess.

Well we were in Bangor in early late Aug or, maybe, early Sept and visited the Harbor Freight as well as grocery store I'm sure.   It was a very friendly town and we were impressed by the miles and miles of American flags that lined the highway in route to the Canadian crossing.   We saw two REs in Maine: one in Arcadia National Park and another near Southwest Harbor.  I didn't get a chance to talk to either rider but the guy near Bar Harbor had a lot of bugs in his teeth.  I think he'd just ridden to the top of Caddy Mountain.   Best, MAM

Well, I did tackle the Nate Harrison Grade up to Palomar on the Guzzi.

Tool the Guzzi across the Crest yesterday. I haven't been up there in a couple of months because it's been too damn hot. It was a great ride and even a bit chilly above 7000'. Stopped at Newcomb's for awhile. Lots of people there. Even coming down into Pasadena wasn't too bad and the ride home was only about 85o. Great ride on a great day!

Found a buyer for my GL1100. So took it to Justin's Cycle for carb rebuild and new fork seals. The son-in-law is modifying and using my Sporty. Says he's going to buy it.

Now in the market for a first generation KLR650 as my alternate ride.
