Going to California to get the 15 best, here are some experiences that I left off the 4 part15 best posts. The 15 roads took two trips to bag them all.
This is the first trip;
At Olancha, Ca....I don't know the story behind this sentiment.
Near Roy's on Rt 66
Riding Ca 1 I see a dust-up at Elephant Seal Rock.
Same road...the Ca 1 is spectacular!
"Oops"...I rode the wrong road. I turned right at the General's highway and Ca 180/198 intersection (I should have gone straight) and spent 2 hours navigating rain, hail, snow and thick fog on the beautiful and mega curvy General's hwy. I didn't realize I had made this mistake until I got home.....
Ohhhh Darn! I'll have to go back and do the right road!
I was able to pick up 10 of 15 during the first trip. On the second trip I was able to get the last 5And on the way home from the first trip I pass through Fallon, Nevada and get this pic.
Then the second trip...
On the way there, and on the way home I stayed both times in Eureka, Nevada at the Sundown LodgeOn my first visit my timing was perfect as the Lodge just happened to be hosting a BBQ that night so I got in on free food and the good times.
Chris and Gina run the place and are Good People! I stayed up till late chatting with Chris and very much enjoyed the meal and conversation.
A bit later I was offered a tour of the Eureka tunnels that the emigrants used many many years ago to make their way around the town. Apparently they were not welcome to be in public in the town proper.
This is underneath one of the buildings on Main Street.
And that's that.
This last trip was a bit under 3000 miles.
On the last three trips I've made the bike has averaged for the trip 55 mpg twice and 57 once. I'm VERY happy with the Tenere....I been lucky enough to have ridden 95,000 miles on her since May of 18
Life is sooooooooooo good!
