Sierras Solo Motorcycle Trip

Yes, again.. This is probably my favorite route yet, so I tend to do go back to it when I have the chance. Kernville to 100 Giants and then skirt the west side of the Sierras until Yosemite, cross over to the east side.             This was a first time route for me, Bridgeport to Sonora. This road had amazing scenery, perfect high speed curves and no cars to be seen. The only other people I saw was an MC heading up the pass the other way.        Kings Canyon - On the way back down I stopped at Kings Canyon and camped for the night. In the morning I packed up and...

Then I remembered that the kill switch was...

We ate some avocado tacos in Creede and kept our rain gear ready. We had to throw it on a few times with downpours here and there.       We camped that night in Durango where there was an amazing lightning show.  The day of riding was really amazing and fast. We had crossed the continental divide a few times and reached some really high altitudes without stopping and really taking it in. That night reflecting on it with a bottle of whiskey we were giddy with all the amazing miles we had already...

Rockies Utah Motorcycle Trip Part 1

Are you joking?As my buddies and I prepare for our cross country motorcycle trip San Diego to New York for Seaweed and Gravel Good Luck Tour, my cousin Mark says he wants to join us on the first few days of the trip. I was stoked because Mark and I have taken a few trips together before and they always were amazing and inspirational. The days off were secured, the families were scheduled to be all good for our time away. The anticipation was so exciting, I couldn't wait to get out on the road and take the next month off to go across the continental U.S. Then we got the call, the cb750 Tom Laveuf was building for the trip...
