. . I got lucky! My wife's relatives we are staying with have three bikes and were generous enough to take me out on a ride early this morning! I rode their Suzook Vstrom1k, from Temecula almost to Idyllwild and back. The scenery here blows away most anything out east. I love Cali![/QUOTE] But oh boy it’s been hot. Was 103 on my ride home from work the other day. Great riding down where you are though.
