San Diego Strom troopers

Check in here. Saw a nice 1K getting serviced at Vey's in El Cajon today and got me wondering how many other V-stroms are in the area since I have not seen any.

Here.

I know there is at least one other that I may be meeting up with for a part swap.

I'll be riding in this weekend if I don't freeze to death going through Gallup, New Mexico. It is supposed to be below 0F on Thursday as I ride through. Possible lows of -6F. That is pretty dang cold. SoCal will look pretty warm by the time I get there. It could be interesting to meet up with some other V-stroms.

-6 on a bike, then add the windchill. No friggin thanks. Depending on the route, I'd be down for a little ride. I could probably get a non-strom or two out as well.

Based on my schedule I'll be in SoCal most likely Saturday afternoon. I need to get a front tire and based on the miles I think I can get out if, I won't make it past Vegas. So I plan to get it replace Friday, relax for the night and then continue on to SoCal.

I have a hotel booked in LA starting Sunday night. So at this point I am somewhat flexible about meeting up for a ride. I just need to find a hotel in the SD area for Sat night. Any suggestions? This all assumes I don't totally freeze my butt off tomorrow. At least the forecast has improved from -6F to -5F. I really thought about leaving continuing on tonight but I really didn't want to ride through mountain passes at night with possible snow.

Lots of options here for hotels and very, very different areas all around the city. What are you wanting to be around? Beach? Bars? Quiet, cheap, opulent?

Hotel Del Coronado is famous way back if you want something like that. But probably a little pricey. Right on the beach.

Old Town has quite a few Mexican restaurants and bars and a really interesting feel, also very historic.

Pacific Beach and Mission Beach are the typical young beach crowd.

Ocean Beach is hippy-ville.

Santee/Lakeside/Alpine are sort of in the mountains.

Julian would be a really cool place to do a bed and breakfast and it is up in the mountains. After Thanksgiving the crowds will be much less. Really cool up there.

And more, and more, and more.

I am pretty flexible. I want to spend a night, not a fortune. I've already planned to spend the fortune in Vegas. :-)

just grab a place at hotel circle, they have every price range and it is centrally located to the 8 / 5 & 15 freeways, so getting on the interstate is easy.
