We are jealous when you are riding in the summer and we are 115+
Complete opposite out here in the desert, ride in the winter park in the summer.
Get your service done and ready for the good times ahead!

Oh..... OK. I feel better now! Yeah, riding when it's over 85 kinda sucks, too. But at least it's a dry 85 and above out there. Best summer riding - the northern western states. Spent a summer in the Tetons in '16. Doing again for July and August this year. The Idaho side.
Ride safe.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. - quote attributed to Helen Keller.

When we left Badwater Basin and headed for Shoshone some of the Spyders were close on gas. One ran out about 10 miles from Shoshone but another guy had some extra gas so all was well.

You want an Idea for a ride to So Cal? Julian for pie at the Julian Pie Company. Roads are amazing. Palomar Mountain has great roads.

Or Mother's up at the top leading to Palomar. Julian can really fill up on weekends with all those pesky tourists.
There used to be a German food place at Lake Cuyamaca that was good. Now it called Cuyamaca restaurant/store. Can't vouch for that.
The restaurant down at Lake Henshaw used to be pretty good too.
Mind that Palomar roads become race tracks for the squids on weekends. Don't know if they have as many dorks crashing as Hwy 2 has but I've been passed by packs of track wanna bees on the windy South side.
For actual Taco's 'Jilbertos' back down 76 at the Pauma Casino has been tasty.
Then you could ride the dirt road , Nate Harrison Grade, up to Palomar.
