San Diego

Just wondering how many people we have from the San Diego(So-Cal) area on here. Thought maybe we could do a little ride down here somewhere. Maybe hit up Palomar or some other twisties in the area. Or we could have some kind of fireblade.org get together down here. Any suggestions let me know. I know this forum section is pretty dead so I'm hoping I at least get a couple replies.

Re: San Diego

I'm in here. My CBR is at home in Elsinore. I only have my KLR down here in SD during the week (for local commuting) until it gets a little warmer.

To a student: no,no,no...straighten then brake.

Re: San Diego

Ever do Highland Rd? I'm about 5 min. from there.

I'm up for a ride just about anytime. Have only managed to stretch my Blade's tires once in the last three weeks, so starting to feel some withdrawal pain!

Re: San Diego

Ahhh. It's a nice treat.

Take I-15 north to the Pomerado Rd. Exit (the exit JUST before you cross over Lake Hodges). Go right, then the very next intersection (it's got a stop light) take a left. That's Highland Rd.

Highland will tee (eventually - I don't know the mileage, I just ride the thing) at a stop sign. Go left, follow that road around, and when you hit a stoplight, you're at Hwy 67.

Go left to head to Julian (and if you haven't been on Old Julian Hwy., you need to ride that one, too); go right to head back down towards Poway..

I grew up in San Diego, and I'm always delighted to be so spoiled by the year-round riding weather we suffer from..

Re: San Diego

Oh yeah my buddies dad lives off Highland DUHHH! That road is awesome, but I suggest peopl run up and down at the speed limit a couple times before they hit it hard. There is a couple nice switch backs up that way.

Nope -- that's to the north, and yet-another very excellent ride. Check out this link for the north I-15 to Highland VALLEY Rd (fergot the VALLEY part!).

Absolutely.. I didn't go "hot" one bit 'til I'd been up and down the thing a few times. Even then, I tend to make a nice leisurely pass one direction just to check out the road conditions (the fires were major there; rain puts a lot of debris on the road).

Re: San Diego

Okay, I think I saw that one in a Friction Zone one month.. My husband brought it to my attention (he rides a wing).

I ride the freeways too much.

To a student: no,no,no...straighten then brake.

Re: San Diego

Well at the moment I have a pretty bald rear tire, but hopefully this weekend I can get some fresh rubber. A Julian trip would be cool, I'd take my wife as a pillion as she loves going up there.

Ms. GT-R you would still enjoy the ride on the KLX up highland to Julian. The scenery is absolutely awesome, much different from the crowded city.

Re: San Diego

<snicker> MSGT-R is Master Sergent - R. I'm a retired Marine.

The little KLR stays down here in Point Loma for the work commute.
My CBR is in the garage in Elsinore, I would take that.

Same-oh for me - tried many a time to get my wife to take her own ride, but she's not into the driving part. And then I see this person:

& knew what MSGT-R meant.. 'Specially with that other thread MSGT-R wrote (person asking about fuel pressure). That smacked of a Sr. NCO making the pull-the-arm/fist-away-from-other-fist gesture (a.k.a. get-your-head-out-your-a**)..

Anyway, looks like the weather will hold over the weekend, so for sure I'm taking off for a bit. Anyone care to join me, just send PM and we can set things up for a meet..
