    On Monday I rode up PCH to see the dead grey whale on the beach at County Line. It was sad to see the young whale lying in the sand. Lots of wounds to its body, as well as the missing samples taken by whatever research teams checked it.

    After, I just wanted to cheer up with a ride in a canyon so rode up PCH more and then, at Deer Creek Rd., decided to take it and see where it goes.

    It's a narrow road, with no shoulder for most of the way, even along the edge of the canyon. Once over the coastal range, it seemed like I could have been in Montana. The landscape was so different from most other parts of Malibu.
    Even though there were few cars out I still took it very slow. Not only did I not know the roads but there was dirt, debris and rocks all over the corners from the recent rains. With the DCT I was in S1 going uphill then just left it in D for the rest of the time.

    I found a few spots to pull over and take these photos. Lots of properties with horses back there and some areas had almost nothing over a foot high growing on them, after the fires from the past few years. Some burned properties and lots of trailers next to homes that were being rebuilt.

    I eventually found my way to Mulholland, but it was closed to the coast, but taking it the other way led me to Decker Canyon, which I knew was open back to PCH.
    On a sport bike this ride would have been not nearly as fun but on the NC700 DCT I could really take advantage of the automatic doing the shifting and sit up, relaxed, and do more sightseeing than I ever used to do in the canyons on my Ninja's.

    Rode to work today---yea!!! a brisk 33'F at my house when I left (no matter how much gear you wear, 33'F at 70mph on interstate gets chilly)...Going to be close to 70'f when I get off work; can we say, take the long way home this afternoon...
    Also, ordered a new rear tire at my local mom/pop shop-they own a country camp down the hill from my house...give them my tire business. The pop had a major health scare in Feb-beat the widow maker 3 times in 3 days; ruptured brain aneurysm, which lead to a stroke; then 3 days later, emergency surgery for a ruptured bowel..he is doing good now...not working yet but getting better every day...only side affect he can notice is his hearing is worse (he wore hearing aids but now those dont help much).

    He stated that was his first symptom something was wrong, he lost all hearing, as if in a vacuum, couple of minutes later, lost all movement of his legs..

    30+ miles north of the river, in my own little micro-climate...but I also left the house at 530am (ET).

    FINALLY topped 50(F) degrees with sunshine yesterday.

    Pulled my wife's '16 NC700x out of the garage and ran it around about 40 miles just to make sure it was all good. Had so much fun I backed my NC750x out of the garage after getting home and ran that around for another 30 miles.

    My wife and I have taken a long weekend trip to Oxford, with a stop half way up for tasty food in a country pub near Romsey. Weather should be excellent over the next few days! I think she was unhappy with how long I took getting ready for her to get on...

    We are planning to get to the Bloomington area. Not sure how much farther south we will go. But we have an apartment in Bloomington so we will go there a few times.
