The contrasts here in north county San Diego are simply staggering, one minute you can be burning down the highway to a bar or sweeping thru never ending curves down one of the nearby mountains, the next walking to the beach along a path next to a small lagoon teeming with wild life.. I ain't no wild life photographer but I got this shot within a minute of taking the cap off my camera lens..
Wednesdays are bike nights and this evening we had a blast down the coast highway to Swami's Beach - there was a killer sunset over the ocean to our right as we headed south; just our pack of three bikes tonight.. No photos possible sadly. Then we hammered it back up the I5 to Carlsbad and a couple PBRs in Hensleys.. Awesome night - hardcore riding!

I bought this 91 XL yesterday as a donor for my next bike - I degreased her and steam-cleaned the motor as it was stained with an unknown fluid, warmed the motor up and took her out for a test ride. I stopped after 10 or so miles and checked for oil leaks - just a minor front rocker cover dribble so that was cool. I gave the bike a bit of hammer along the Coast Highway next - and she hauls ass - seems like a real strong motor in her.. I got home and had another quick look for leaks - all good so I made the deal!
