I wanted to take a ride out of town today so I hopped on the Fly and headed north. I had originally intended to just go to Santa Clarita and back, but I ended up in Palmdale. I went up via Sierra Hwy and back via Bouquet Canyon. No pics, mostly because I forgot the camera.

The ride up was a little taxing since the speed limit was mostly 55 with a lot of uphill riding. Fastest I could get it was around 58 on a relatively flat stretch of road. I found myself pulling over a few times to let faster vehicles pass.

Once in Palmdale, I stopped at McDs for lunch and returned over Bouquet Canyon. Much quieter road with a nice blend of curves and not that hilly.

Google maps says about 109 miles r/t. Not too bad for my first "out of LA" trip. (I've ridden out to Santa Monica and down as far as Carson but that doesn't count.)
