So here I am in San Diego California, where it was 72 and sunny when I landed this afternoon. I've already picked up a brand new 2009 Harley-Davidson Street Glide and have mapped out a nice leisurely ride East along the Mexican border to Calexico and then North to Palm Springs where I'll spend a couple of days with some dear friends and some time riding around the high California desert before heading back to San Diego to turn the bike in and fly home to Seattle.
I've not been on a long road trip since Tony pandabuff and I got back from our Corner To Corner adventure and I'm really looking forward to it. I need to get out on the road and relax, let my mind drift, and enjoy the freedom of the road and the motorcycle. The forecast is for warm, dry and sunny for the next five days. I can't remember when it's been like that back home! It's only a few more weeks until the Legislative session starts and I won't be able to get away. I need this trip.
