another ride

countersteer! countersteer! countersteer! sheesh, cross winds in and around the cahuilla reservaton. i was gonna hit the desert but no go, so i headed the other direction to idylwild (funny oxymoron, huh?).

somewhere near anza


hmm, tribute to the gal who sang about chevies back in the 50s?


biker-friendly cafe


got my morning buzz here in idylwild 5400'


mountain center, slightly downhhill and a few twisties from idylwild


afterward i got pushed around again in the gently rolling dry lakebed area northeast of lake henshaw...hot dangit, more countersteer...

nevertheless, good 225 mile day had by me.

Nice ride report and it brings back memories.

We moved to SW Missouri from Hemet, in 1999 and all of the places you mentioned I am familiar with and have been to. We moved to Hemet from Bellflower in1986. I was born in Lynwood and lived in Paramount most of the time.

I used to ride my Dualsport bikes up jeep roads to Idylwild for breakfast a couple of times a week.

Ortega hwy and the Rock store and Cooks Corner, Palomar, Mount Laguna, Anza Borrego, Salton Sea and many other areas hold lots of memories for sure.

I also miss RV camping on the beach in Camp Pendleton.

There is a Jiberto's in Anza now that has great Mexican food. I make sure to visit the one in Borrego Springs when i camp there.
There is another on Hwy 76 just East of Pala.

My offices were right in the financial District of Los Angeles for many years!

When you said "Mexican Food," it made me think of all of the wonderful REAL MEXICAN restaurants in and around Los Angeles!

My wife and I really miss the authentic Mexican food.

In Carthage, MO, where I live, there are lots of fine and good 'Hispanic' families, mostly from Guatemala but very few from Mexico so we have absolutely no good Mexican Restaurants.

I have ridden Angeles Crest Highway, from end to end lots of times and when the SMOG is out, it gives beautiful views.

All those names bring back memories of riding in SoCal for 45 years, then I moved to Portland 12 years ago where I really enjoy all the roads and forests to ride through.
Just did a 3 week trip in the car back to visit friends and family last month.

" we have absolutely no good Mexican Restaurants."

I noticed the same with Chinese food in the Midwest. It ain't the same. Even with Orientals at the kitchen it's been tamed down to BLAH.
i betcha even Rick Bayless in Chicago it's not the same as he found in Mexico.
