Trying to find the best biking road south of LA on the new Panigale S
It finally happened, I got my grubby hands on the Ducati Panigale S!
To find out what this awesome looking machine was really capable of I went in search of the best motorcycling road south of LA and used the southern California Butler Map for reference as we headed high up into the mountains, even above the clouds, it was epic.
To cap off one brilliant day of riding Nik and I stumbled upon some brilliant vacation cottages at the summit of the Palomar Mountain which welcomed us with open arms despite dropping in unannounced in the dark. The daughter in law gave us veg, fish and a bottle of whiskey so we could make ourselves a meal to warm and fill our bellies – as we sat in front of a log fire and talked about the incredible day of riding.
The next morning the owner of Bailey’s resort shared his love for 2-wheels and reminisced his biking past before we took off for another day of fabulous roads before heading home.
Here are a few incredible photo’s that Nik took along the way:
