They must have realized that I don't own a KTM.

Hopefully they will eventually get back to me.
I've applied and think the same thing

You let me know when you are in the area and we will go out and ride through the "mountains." I miss the nice roads of Washington sometimes but Alpine gives me that homey feeling will the trees around so it kinda makes up for it.
I'm in Pine valley we should ride!!

San Diego County Back Country Discovery Route

My buddy and i were thinking of mapping out a San Diego County Back Country Discovery Route gps route. The idea would be a 2 day ride with an over night in the Anza Borrego desert that hits all the major back country roads like Palmar Mountain dirt and paved roads, Pine Hills/Eagle Peak road, Boulder Creek road, Mt Laguna, Julian, Banner grade, some desert dirt roads and Otay Mountain Trunk trail. All laced together in a tour of San Diego back country. Any one have suggestions?

Sounds cool, interested to see what you come up with. My wife and I have done some cool back roads two up, but hate finding the gated private road signs on some of the once through roads

Just got to SD a couple weeks ago and the bike will be arriving in a week (cross fingers). I'll have a Thruxton and a f650gsa Dakar so guess which one will get ridden more. Would love to try something gentle as I'm 'sensitive' to dirt coming from the east coast. All we have is mud, ice and some sand!

Welcome J,
What part of SD county are you in? There's some easy trails in the north county. If you're up that way, you might want to check this out:

Let us know when you're ready to ride

You might add Black Canyon road and Nate Harrison Grade. The latter takes you up to the top of Palomar on a dirt/pavement mix. Both are almost empty on a Saturday. AMHIKT.

Sort of. It's actually 60/40 broken blacktop/dirt. Yes, it goes up Palomar.

Anyone up for a SD area Sunday ride??

Was going to head toward Morena & hit some of the easy gravel & dirt Jeep trails.

Meet at 8:00 . Coffee up & head out.

I'm working on my San Diego back country discovery route and need to pick a route from Alpine/Viejas Grage to Dulzura to hook up on the Otay Mountain truck trail. Thats a long segment of pavement and need a dirt road in the segment for balance. Any ideas?
