Of you have time and desire take the road across from the PCH through fort hunter liggett. I highly recommend it and stop and takes pics and look behind you on that first climb. It's pretty spectacular.

Just a heads up to any San Diego guys. I just sold my FJ1100, and I'm looking for an ADV bike. Interested in something bigger, like a Strom1000. I'm on a limited budget so I don't mind beat up bikes that need some work. $2500 ready to spend. I'd appreciate any tips !

That's a tight budget for a large displacement ADV bike, but not impossible.

Have you considered an XR650 (L or R)? Lots of them for sale in your price range and they are fantastic bikes.

I saw that the other day when you linked it to JJ. Looks to be cool trip! I'm likely going to be tied up at work between March & April so it's doubtful I'll make any trips this Spring.

I've never been. Is Sunday more preferential for some reason? I'm off both days but just picked Sat on a whim.

We have lots more at the house in VA. Stacy is moving back in a few weeks & will pass along some more stuff. Hope we catch up on a ride before I sail west.

Hola San Diego! My roommate and I were looking to plan a weekend ride away from it all and I thought I'd ask here for suggestions. We are looking to ride out on a Friday evening, ride some dirt and campout somewhere secluded (preferably forest instead of desert) and then return Sunday. We both have DRZs and are fairly capable riders but will be loaded down with camping supplies so don't want to get into anything too crazy. Any suggestions?
