Made a run over Palomar Mountain today. It's probably the best road in the area, but takes a bit to get to.
It was about 144 miles. And I spent some time stopping and adjusting the rear suspension.

You can see some of the curves hidden in this picture.

The "Highway to the Stars", so the sign says. There is a major observatory at the peak.

Sometimes I remember to take a selfie.

Another great ride... but aren't they all!
Really enjoying the little Svart.
Even the highway bits are fine up to about 70mph. Above that and the bike is still fine, but I miss having a windscreen... the wind blast at 80mph can be a bit tiring.
And the rear suspension needs some work. That will be a fun project.
