winter ST destination

I'm looking for a place to ride to at the end of the year from So. Cal. I usually go on a 3-4 day riding trip after Christmas. I did Grand Canyon last year and Eureka the year before, and while I had fun, it was TOO DAMN COLD.

Can anyone suggest a lower-elevation destination worth riding to this winter, that'll take about 3-4 days roundtrip from the LA area?

to make you more flexible

I just installed some grip heaters and they are the $hit! Wherever you go that time of year, they would offer a bit more comfort in the chillier parts of the trip. $30

Most people I know (including myself) use the Dual Star elements. Allows you to use any grips you want, or the OEM grips that came with your bike.

What about a loop through Southeastern AZ? Douglas, Bisbee, Patagonia, Nogales. Good historic wine country with rolling hills and rather nice twisties.

Infact, if you head through Tucson or Phoenix I might even join you. . .
