Join us for a scenic ride to Borrego. We will start through Descanso, then Japataul and stop at Lake Cuyamaca. We will then go through Banner Grade (technical road with negative camber curves), Yaqui Pass then head into Borrego and have lunch at Jilberto's, right by Christmas Circle. Bring CASH! Jilberto's only accepts cash.

The mileage for this stretch is 80. We will gas up in Borrego before our return trip back through Montezuma, 79 and stop/break at Dudley's where everyone usually splits off to go home.

Please have FULL TANKS at start. There is a Shell station right across the street. KSU at 9:30am.

    This is one of the best ways to enjoy motorcycling, on a long run, with lots of hot bikes, stopping periodically to regroup and meet your follow riders. Thanks Alex I loved it.

      If you're in a cage, you'll be relegated to being the caboose and carry some of our stuff. Especially when we peel off clothing as it gets warmer. A Sag wagon is always welcome!

    WOW!! Thank you Alex for the great route and ride leadership once again. Thank you Dr. Dan and Dan-O for being mid and sweep. Thank you also road guards and photographers. Welcome new folks! Great to see everybody. You all contributed to yet another fun and memorable event! Hope to see you all again. FYI - Alex has also started his own meetup - Cruzin San Diego.

    What an amazing ride....thanks alex for organizing this one! Even tho we almost got lost following riders not in our group. Haha

      I think they were in our group, but decided to break off. I'm glad we got it back together.

      1 · January 20, 2013

    • Alex

      I was glad it all worked out but I want to apologize to any one that I startled when I was playing catch up. It reminded me too much of my Ducati days and I don't want to repeat that any time soon. ;)

      1 · January 20, 2013

  • Alex

    Thanks so much to all that attended - new and vets! You all have contributed to making this the biggest group ever - 47 bikes and 50+ people!! Wow!! A special thanks to Dan (sweep), all the co-captains and guardsmen to make this all possible and for us to have a fun and safe ride, which is always our goal. Weather was absolutely perfect in Borrego.

    I had so much fun once again! Beautiful weather, great scenery. It was so good to see all of you and fun running into Karenina after lunch. I can't wait for our next adventure, I love my biker family!

    Nice day for Borrego! I didnt ride with you today, but beeped and threw kisses! Good stuff out there, all, thanks for the chat and hugs, Jodi, Richard, Dan and Andrew.

  • Dan

    This was a well set up ride,AGAIN, by Alex. Other than leaving the parking lot, we never got separated thanks to some well placed blockers. I can't tell you how incredible it looks from the Sweep position to see all of the group in procession. It was great to see so many new faces and folks that I haven't seen in a while as well as the regulars. Thank You all for being a part of my weekend.

    That was a great ride. Thanks Alex for setting that up and leading it at a safe pace. Sorry I had to cut out early. Enjoyed talking to everybody as usual.

    Since this is a rather large group, you can eat wherever you want, not that it was mandatory to eat at Jilbertos

    Alex you picked a great weekend for this run, weather up her is nice!

    1 · January 18, 2013

      Rex, you're getting me in trouble with Kate. She's asking who I got lucky with. haha

      2 · January 18, 2013

    • Chuck C.

      It sure feels good over her today. :-). Should be a great ride.

      January 19, 2013

  • karenina

    Any chance we'll break in to smaller (Fewer than 10 bikes ) groups? Faster group? Slower group? Expect to be separated by traffic group? ;)

    January 17, 2013

    • Alex

      Only if people know the route and there are hardly any lights and stop signs. Otherwise it's not necessary because everybody should be able to keep up with the pace. Hope nobody's in too much of a hurry to get to our destination.

      January 17, 2013

  • Alex

    Dr. Dan, sounds good. I haven't used mine in a while so I'm hoping it still works. With this big group, I'll be using my cell phone with Dan and bluetooth with you. I'll explain that on Sunday. See you then!

    January 14, 2013

    • karenina

      Ill have the FRS and GRMS standard stations available on my chatterbox. Correlates with (midland) radios, and you, I hope.

      It's unfortunate that your system will not work with ours. We are using the SENA system which is proprietary.

    Alex, Kate?, Kat, Jairo, Armida, Steve. How can I stay away? I dont even know what Im doing that day but Ive got to at least come down for coffee. I was in BS last weekend and it was outstanding.

    January 10, 2013

    • Dan

      Chopped liver???? LOL

      January 12, 2013

    • karenina

      Oh, dear. Dan you're right, that (EARLY) comment does appear snooty and exclusionary doesn't it? However, that was the entire RSVP "yes" list at the time... ;o) Alex, tricky Banner cambers remain.

      January 12, 2013

  • Alex

    @Dan, I'll be bringing my headset. It's been a while. I'm looking forward to this ride.
    @Steve, I hope the weather cooperates too.
