A couple months late, but thought i'de post up a few pictures from my Cali trip in late June. It was AWESOME riding. Wish I had the Busa, but it was even fun on the BMW tanker...

I left Vegas and headed north to try and avoid crossing Death Valley in peak heat. I took the 95 to North of Beatty and took the 168 heading west. The 168 is AWESOME and you should all mark it down as a MUST RIDE. Curvey once you get into it and some incredible scenery. In fact, it goes to one lane for a short while between the mountains. Just amazing. I was hitting it pretty hard on the BMW, and almost lost it big time on an off-camber curve (would have been easy on a sport bike). Still it was a blast.

I took the 395 North and stayed the night at the El Rancho motel in Bishop. Great little place with some kind ederly folks running the joint.

Here'z a pic.

The pass over Yosemite was closed, and they said it would be closed until JULY due to heavy snow. So, I went North to Sonora Pass, WHAT A TREAT! Totally curvey and amazing scenery...

San Fran was great, did Alcatraz, Fisherman's Warf, Golden Gate, etc. But Yosemite with the snow melt was incredible.
