SD County Day ride

Went up and rode Palomar Divide to the fire lookout tower today.

The group I went with is a 4x4 group but with gas being 4.40ish a gallon here I decided to ride the bike instead. Jeep is averaging 13.6MPG right now. Bike is averaging 47.8 MPG. Easy call there.





If you look close you can see 2 4x4s in the background


An active fire lookout tower.






After we got done there I rode back into San Diego for the San Diego BMW Grand Re-Re-opening.

Some decent older German bikes there


Scooter with a sidecar




They actually did a really nice job opening the place up. I'm impressed.

Yo, Downs.
I was at the reopening about noonish. Good food and so many BMW's I can't afford and really don't want.
I'll stick with my Wee and G650GS. If you saw an old guy pushing his wife in a wheelchair, that was us!
I did a fit try with the new 1200RS. Too long of a reach for the Billy Barty arms. My wallet is safe!

I like the desert tan paint job on your bike. I keep think it's rattle can time!

Just rattle can it already

I dont' remember seeing a wheelchair there but I didn't get to the shop until I think 1430 or 1500. I rode in from Palomar Divide and my wife drove up from Lakeside and met me there.
