Even though the event was officially over the night before, most of us waited for Sunday morning to head home.

All in all, everyone had fun. Those who wanted to drink all day and night got to do that, while those who wanted to ride around the area got to do that as well. I think the Weenie Bite and the Victor McLaglen Motor Corps were the two events that caught the most attention.

Some of the folks in our group left early in the morning, while the rest of us opted to sleep in.

The day was actually was quite colder than Saturday and Friday, and quite windy. Heading west on I-8, we were fighting against the wind all the way to the San Diego County line. When we jumped on the I-8, I was going to lead the group at a conservative 75mph, with slightly less than half-a-tank. I figured I could fill up in El Centro. But the head wind dropped my gas mileage down so bad that I had to slow it down to 70mph, and finally down to 65mph, because I honestly thought I was going to run out of gas before I got there.

In El Centro, I managed to put 5.2 gallons of gas into what I thought was a 5.0 gallon gas tank on the Harley Ultra.

The skies were clear over Imperial County, but you could see storm clouds over the mountains by the San Diego county line.

Our group took I-8 west to County Road S2, and headed up to Highway 78. We followed the 78 into Julian for lunch, where it was a lot colder. We took the 78 down to Santa Ysabel, and then to Highway 79 into Temecula, and the I-15 back home to Menifee.
