The first few days have been great. The ride up was good and motocompy performed rather swimmingly. The temperature between San Diego and San Bernardino was probably low to mid nineties and the system didn’t die, so it’s passed its first test. I suppose I passed my first test as well. Two and a half hours on the bike and my system didn’t die either. Today was good, too. We rented a pontoon boat and spent about four sunburnt hours out on Big Bear Lake…swimming, talking, enjoying family. Ok, so here’s part of my trip up the mountain…some good twisting roads. Here till Thursday and then off to northern lands.
