If you have been following this trip from post 808, you've gone from CA San Joaquin Valley East across the California Sierra Nevada Mountains to the Nevada broader and back again going West.. You've gone over 3 high mountain passes to almost 10K feet and traveled 347 miles of twists and turns in one day..........
Back to the flatland and traffic..............Welcome to California riding.........

I'm glad you enjoyed it.. There are 4 other passes plus many other rides here in CA.. I do that ride 4 to 5 times a year plus the other way around........

Wow, 540Km (335 Mi) without fuel, a little out-of-range for a Goldwing!

no pictures today,
yesterday was a long protracted road, what with a tire coming apart on the Suburban while trying to get back home pulling our Toy Hauler behind us.

the shaking got so bad, we quit looking at the scenery, the mirrors were so distorted we couldn't use them. down to 15 mph for the last 20 miles to get to the closest tire store around, a Walmart..

We made it to the Walmart superstore and bought 3 new tires to replace the rear tires plus the spare underneath the truck..... that spare had to be 20 years old?? did not trust it at all.

with a new All Season tread now, it is super smooth compared to the Farm Truck muddy season tread we used to have.
