I headed west from Escondido to to Pacific Ocean.
This stop was in Carlsbad, CA along Pacific Coast Hwy 101.

Still along the beach in Carlsbad, CA.
A beautiful day for a motorcycle ride.

Heading South this stop was in Encinitas, CA.
A Lot of bicycle riders out today.

Same location in Encinitas alone Pacific Coast Hwy 101.

Solana beach at Fletcher Cove.
This looked like a nice place for a photo shot.
After all, this is a Motorcycle Blog.

Del Mar beach.  Another nice photo opportunity.

This stop was along the beach in Torey Pines.

It’s getting windy again climbing over the mountains.

Climbing over the mountains and windy.
Good place to put some wind turbines.

Riding East over the mountains towards Arizona.

Still in Arizona.  Time to stretch and drink some water.  Only about 200 miles to go!

I stopped in Yuma along I-8 at Bobby’s Territorial Harley-Davidson.  I’ve been here before but never got the t-shirt.  This time I had to get one.  My t-shirt collection needed just 1 more!  You can never have enough different H-D t-shirts.

Still at Bobby’s Territorial Harley-Davidson looking South.  I tried to get the train engine passing buy but wasn’t quick enough.

Imperial San Dunes between Yuma, AZ and El Centro, CA.

More sand dunes at the Imperial San Dunes Recreation Area.

Climbing over the mountains East of San Diego along I-8.  Elevation sign showed 4181 feet above sea level.  It started to get cold and as you can see by the flags on the motorcycle, very windy.
