I was going to go do the route again last week, but my buddy's schedule dictated that we stay in the far north and do a little loop. Ah, maybe in the fall, its heating up in the low desert pretty good right now and I dont fancy doing that route in 100*+ heat.
A riding buddy did this last year and said it was one of the most beautiful rides he has done. We are going to ride it N-S the end of Feb 2010. Probably camp somewhere on the beach . He said it was a bit of work on his XR650l loaded w/gear.

He also has a line on a route from Catavina west to the coast. Anyone know of this?

thats one of Bill Nichols routes. It has some rough spots. I thought a 450 was way too much bike on that route, well for me anyway. The 22 days and Freds Tractor Trail are even more burly I think..........

Crashmaster,
I can't open your .GPX file in Garmin RoadTrip. I think it is because your track is in a document. Can anyone provide me with guidance? Error is: The document “20080221.gpx” could not be opened. RoadTrip cannot open files in the “Garmin RoadTrip Document” format.

2012 update

We rode this Jan of 2012 following a route from gpsxchange.com: http://www.gpsxchange.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1505

Mostly good two track. Heading into the mountains after La Trinidad the track runs in a very sandy, rocky wash for a ways and would be a stone bitch on a big bike. The area is VERY remote. It took us about 18 hours from Bay of LA, but we had a bunch of mechanicals (leaking tank, broken sub frame, malfunctioning lights, broken chain, ruptured FI hose) and spent at least 4 hours stopped wrenching.
