Idyllewild/Banning 74 and 243, Sat May 31
« on: 05/28/14 02:22PM »
I'll try this again. Highway 74 starting in San Juan Capistrano at Starbucks over the hill to Elsinore then onto Hemet continue
up to Idyllwild then down to Banning, reverse for the return. From Starbucks to Banning is 107 miles.

Time 8 am KSU at 8:15 a little earlier for you coffee drinkers  :) Starbuck on Ortega HWY

IMHO this is a very fun ride. I consider Ortega a commuter road and have no great expectations but with out traffic it can be fun at any rate its better than a freeway :) Between Elsinore and Hemet pretty strait forward and goes by quick. Once we are past Hemet picks up quickly up the mountain lots of tight turns some banked all new road. Easy to pass any cars but there hasn't been many on previous runs fun all the way to Idyllwild. Between Idyllwild and the drop down to Banning mix of fast sweepers and some tight turns. The drop down to Banning is very twisty and down the whole way knee dragin' time for those with the skill. Reverse on the way back. Because of the steep clime going back up the mountain the road you just went down has a completely different feel.

I'll make the same deal as with Todd if went we stop for lunch and can honestly say this sucks your $5 footlong or 6'' sandwich is on me  :)

Fast guys in the front ect. While I've made improvements in my ridding I don't expect be the leader when the road turns fun so pass me any time you like :29:

I know this route very well.  For those of you on the fence, do it.  Hwy 74 and 243 are epic and Idyllwild is a nice place to hang and have lunch in.  It's a popular motorcyclist hang out too especially this time of year.  Lots of bikes, babes, and cool cars too.

Unfortunately, I promised the wife I'm hers all weekend.  Otherwise I'd be all in.

its worth dealing with Ortega and that boring stretch to the 243 once you're on the 243.  You guys have fun.  I want to spend a whole weekday on the 243 one of these days.

Going to do a quick rear shock adjustment, check tire pressure, gas up, and head out!
