The Tour Of Calfornia (road bicycle race) goes from Palmdale to Big Bear (!!!) by the worst possible route to ride a bicycle on Friday. I am thinking about following the route along (on my motorcycle, duh!), I could probably spectate at four or more spots. There does not seem to be much opportunity for dirt riding in the process. The motorcycles that support, photograph and relay video are catching my attention this year. There are a few GSs, including an F800GS, as well as whatever those big touring bikes are with the big plain rectangular headlight. On Stage 2, the rainy day, all I could see were the big GS bikes. I would love to get a closer look at all of it.
