I agree! I have a list already made up of all the parts I want to order for it. The exhaust guards are on the top of the list.

I Ride: 2012 1199 Base/ABS
I absolutely love riding Palomar Mountain. Unfortunately, I've totaled two bikes there. The first one because I was a noob and was riding way above my ability/comfort level, and the second because of sand/dirt on the road. It started as a low side turned high side, then turned into me flying about 175 down off the side of the mountain. Both me and my bike separated mid-flight and we both hit a separate tree. After a few broken bones and lots of bumps, bruises, strains and a concussion, I don't go there anymore...but I sure do miss it.

I was up there this weekend. It was a bit warm but otherwise nice and clear.
Some of those corners have nothing but oblivion on the outside of them. Can't imagine sailing over the edge mid hi-side crash.

*shudders*

Thank god for traction control. Although my desire to stay alive probably deserves more credit for keeping me alive. But the traction control helps!

Yesterday I tore the bike down to fix a few small oil leaks caused by vibrations. I spent most of the day yesterday removing the rear subframe, tank, heat shields for the rear cylinder and cleaning. I am going to leave the cylinder covers off for a while to see how I like it. I should have it all back together before the weekend no problem.

Yeah, it would have been covered under warranty no problem. I like working on it, it relaxes me. I also get a chance to clean everything while it is all torn apart.

It is back together and ready to roll. I will fill the tank back up and take it for a short ride tomorrow to make sure everything is perfect.

I Ride: Diavel, Panigale R
I was recently out there riding through Ortega Hwy and was told to also visit Palomar Mtn. It was very technical so that first slow pass was a good one to get the feel of the road. It was a Wednesday mid-afternoon and there really wasn't a car to be seen up there. The roads were relatively clean and smooth. The highly technical twists and turns with elevation changes started to mentally and physically drain me on the second pass as the weather was on the warm side whilst wearing a racing suit. Until.. I saw a sign that point to an "Observatory!" Without cars, it offered a smooth and soft winding path (with just a couple cattle crossings :-p ) with shady trees what provided a rush of cool air and replenishment of relaxation to recharge my spirits for more riding. More shaded trees to the nearby lake and I went back to my camper parked and waiting for me at the nearby casino. The attached pics are from a burial site of a firefighter and one from the lake with cows in the background. Truly a nice visit and hope anyone that reads this also finds some time to make the trip over there.

I brought down two bikes from Denver, the Diavel and 1199. Totally enjoyed lane splitting on the 405 after Mulholland and hope to be back there in December.

Could some of us get together for a nice run up Palomar Mtn. again?

Was on Palomar Mountain yesterday (12/7/14). Was a good run! It was a little cold when we first got there but warmed up quickly to a very comfortable temp. We made 4 passes up and down before heading back West on the 76 and South on the 15 to the house.

We are going to go over to Borrego today for a run. We will leave right after the traffic makes it through Ramona on the 78 freeway. We should be at the top of Montazuma Grade by around 10-11 for at least 4-6 runs up and down. Then the plan is the long way back through Banner Grade and Julian.
Thanks from Sergio1199Panigale and RRnold
