We headed out today for a desert run. Real windy but fun nevertheless.

I ran out of Alpine, through Ramona, Santa Ysabel, towards Warner Springs down S2, then 78, 86 to Westmorland, 86 down to El Centro and then home!

275 miles...

The track:



Black Beauty ready to roll:



Jim's KLR and my bike - John was getting gas (TW200) so I missed him:



Self portrait running down 79... Cold!



Looking North off S2:

And now a string of shots from Slot Canyon:





One with Jim:























Back on the road heading to the Mud Pots:



The Mud Pots!










That's it folks! Thanks for looking!

Nice pics. I put 10,000 miles on a TW200 before finally moving up to a DR350. I know that that top end of the TW is right at 65 mph with the engine screaming, so either you waited a lot for your buddy or rode at a "scenic" pace.

Thanks for posting up.

Scenic pace... 55-60 mph all day... 64mpg on the Wee... ;)

I love the TW... Once did over 600 miles in one day on her...

RE:Socal

Nice ride Warren. When the weather is nicer I prefer the route through Warner Springs up into idylwild and back down through Temecula 15 home?

64mpg...........:hurray:

Yup - That's a nice ride!

I usually do that ride a few times a year but also swing up to Big Bear for lunch... :)

This is a great ride. From 7000 ft (more or less - I think) and big pine trees around Alpine to next to 0 ft at the Salton Sea and hard core desert. Not many places in this country you can do that on a day trip. Also good food and a place to stay in Julian or Warner Springs if you want to make it a leasurely two days.
