It looks like you found some of the good roads. Bummer about not having any tools to fix the battery problem.
Hi Bill, Yes, I thought so too. Although also found some roads that were that were not.
Found Pala Temecula Rd to be marked 'Private, No Entry" (and an other big sign with some language I could not even recognize).
FOund Liley Rd to be a dirt road off of CA-76, and I dont mean gravel, I mean dirt.
And that is when I found Cole Grade Rd, and I figured any road with "grade" in the name is worth a try, thinking of Palomar SOuth Grade and East Grade.
Later thought of Crouser Canyon Rd. I see is marked with a 1 & 4 on the map.
SonInLaw suggested the De Luz and other roads north of Fallbrook, as he said someone suggested it to him. I was a bit concerend that it may not be far enough away from suburbia.... but I was wrong.
I expect to be back in the area in May and again in August.
Should chat with you sometime about some other roads up there in northern SD county, with now being in Oceanside (I-5 & CA-76 area).
Yah, no tools between the two of us. Me not having any tools being away from home like that, and, really isnt much of anything that I could do on the 1150RT bike anyway.
And he didnt have any tools, just because he doesnt..
I told my son in law that on my bike at home (82 Suzuki GS1100GK) I carry a tool kit I asseembled, and actaully carry some spare parts if going out of town -- and that really surprised him.
Hee Hee, on my next trip out there, I should get a little took kit to carry on my bike, and tell my SonInLaw it is for his bike har har har
Funny, we used to ride to Julian for pie on weekends. Haven't seen anything about that lately.
Julian is higher elevation, so was snowing there a couple days.
That Julian Pie Company building in my picture is in Santa Ysabel.
THe H-Ds parked there (not the group leaving) was interesting in that was a group of German (?) tourist on rental(?) H-Ds. One guy strolled over to take a quick look at the RT, just a quick look in passing.
Last couple times I was to Julian, Feb last year and the year before, the place was jammed with tourist.... and that was in Febuary. Mid 80s in San Diego and mid-low 60s up there in Julian.
