Other wise known as the Monkey Butt Express....

Yesterday the Mrs. and I rode to the Salton Sea. We used most of the route that the OC-Temecula ride will use next month.

Just a word of caution to some of the more novice riders. The winds on the roads between Warner Springs and the road going down into Borrego are strong and tricky.

Other than that, It was a great ride. Many great views to be seen.

The view down into Borrego Springs....

Very nice! It's a great ride down there...was there any snow on the hills in Ranchita?

(Judging from that lunch picture...that mexican place in Borrego is worth stopping at!)

ride to borrego
It was a fun ride and nice to get out on a beautiful day and spend time with my hubby! Just don't look down if you don't like heights! (and really I wish that were a more flattering pic with me eating my chilaquiles!)

Looks like you had a great ride and some great food!

Matt and Len, our fearless Cafe Moto leaders took us on a great ride out to the Salton Sea a while back, with some help from a Palm Desert local, Ken. I must say, it was a cool place to check out, but wish I could have also seen it when all of the hotels and resorts were open way back in the day.

Borrego is awsome too. Matt, Len, and I went out there for coffee last January, and the weather was perfect out there! Although on the ride out it was anywhere from the high 70's to low 50's, so we had to pull over a couple times to add or remove gear.

I'm looking forward to the ride on the 7th with the OC riders and my local friends.

There is another group in SD doing a weekend trip out there next week: http://www.meetup.com/sd-scooters/boards/thread/8285712/10/

Through Borrego Springs
Nice photos of my favorite two places. (except in the summer). Lots of history in these two places. Looks like you got into the Visitor Center as well. Looking forward to seeing you all on the 7th.
