Spur of the moment...

Well,
I've just received (gladly) news that I do not have to return from CA TO OKC until 1/11/15. That means I can take approximately 4 weeks to ride and still be back home in time for Christmas. Wife is on board to let me go. I'm at the DMV waiting to register my newly acquired FJR1300ES.
Looking at routes on or south of I-10 to stay fairly warm, to Florida and back. Anybody have any input for the ride? ( street only, the KLR stays home on this one). Tag along for all or part? Meet for a beer?
I'm headed to the IMS at Long Beach tomorrow, probably depart by Monday....approximately.

Didn't say if you wanted sightseeing or burnin' miles, but if you want to variety.....

Notice both loops run you through Santa Ysabel - where the Julian Pie Company bakes starting early in the AM. I get a warm slab of Strawberry/Rhubarb & cinnamon ice cream.

Wish I wasn't in NM next week, I'd put some miles in with ya.

Side loop 1 - See sand dunes & Salton Sea

Sorry - couldn't get short (inset) version to work.

Loop 2 - more mountainous and trees then down to the border.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will do both burning miles and sight seeing. That the beauty of the FJR:
Put up the windshield and hit the cruise, listen to tunes...........
Then put down the windshield, switch to sport modes and flick the wrist.

You can run along the Mexican border, it's pretty nice. On and off the 8 in places....all the way to Texas.

Yes,
I will Definately hook onto th I-8. Looking at being in Yuma about Tuesday. Probably some shrimp tacos in algadones along with a cold Tecate. I've ridden a lot of So Cal. Looking for maybe some ideas out of the state.
I have to be back in CA Dec 8th, so I have a little time to stretch my legs. I'll be off Monday afternoon, or Tuesday AM. Gonna try to follow the 72 degree line awhile.
