Had the pleasure of riding into Julian from Palm Springs and then onto L.A. A magnificent town and Rick's right, the best apple pie! Might have to do a CEO Ride there...
Around 1984 I Knew a gal that lived in San Diego on Sunset Cliffs Blvd.and stayed with her for a week. Anyway, She gave my friend and I directions to Julian. We did not have a MC at the time but the upper desert I believe it's called was beautiful. The town of Julian brought us back in time. Later we drove up to Ramona and I believe that little town was/is German heritage. Going forward in time to 1986 when I met my wife Ramona and married her in 1991. Julian and Ramona are special to me and one day I would love to bring my wife Ramona to Julien and Ramona on our Goldwing. Still have my Harley but that Gold Wing is "SMOOTH".
I used to love going up there 15+ years ago but since then it has got much more commercial and more tourist trappy I certainly miss the days before it became such a popular destination and the original shops were forced out.
