Took the bike on its maiden voyage today. Very happy with it.
Our gracious hosts James and Colleen are bike nuts and have a garage anyone would be envious of and have done some brilliant trips them selves including an epic trip to Ushuaia in Sth America on DR650s.
Our destination would be the world renowned Angeles crest highway and the equally well known Newcombes ranch. Our route took us on some goat track that everyone seems to get a kick out of., so we decided to get our kicks too.
The Angels crest road was brilliant and the scenery unbelievable.
Had a great breakfast at the very popular Newcombes ranch Then more fun on the Angeles forest road which also included a quick stop at the earth moving St Andreas fault.
The local wildlife is a little smaller than what we Have at home but still scared the shit out of me.
Back to our luxurious digs and while I set to work bringing you this up date, Sam just luxuriated in the pool.
Then James and Colleen took us on a twilight tour to the famous Huntington Beach and its famous pier where we had a great burger and watched the sun set over the Pacific Ocean. Was very romantic and the only thing missing was a jet ski.
Then home to bed. Totally shattered and tomorrow we set off heading west. Who knows where will end up.
