I’m in Huntington Beach I just rode Palomar about three weeks ago. First time I had been on it in like two years nice tight technical road. I ride down in Temecula quite a lot some very nice roads down there down into Borrego. About 4-5 times a year my friend and I will ride ACH. In the summer we will go to Big Bear. No matter where we go it’s almost 100 miles to get there.
Like the others have pointed out don’t worry about the strips they will go away with time
