California Desert

Here’s a couple of pics of the California Desert, in this case Palm Desert, near Palm Springs, if anyone not from this area is curious.

Lots of great places to ride in this general area, but without a bike this trip!

It doesn't look like the kind of place where you'd need to spend too much time warming your tyres (tires ) before a blast.

Haha, yeah, especially this time of year.

Most of the year the temp is beautiful, but during the summer months, hot, Hot, HOT!

There’s not just Desert out here, but also some pretty fancy cars in the Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs area...

Like these for example, with a 10,000 plus red line...

What do you think, Red or Yellow???

And if you prefer something other than Italian (not me, but just saying), No Problem... You have Choices!

Maybe one of these will suit you...

One of my trips out here I took a Maclaren for a spin. Nice car, but you know, for kicks, Id ride a Superbike over it any day. Of course I was only out in the entry model the 570, though. Maybe Id have a different view in the papa version...
