Vintage Adventure Riding ...

The Feather River and Route 70 is an alternate way to get from Oakland, for example, to Salt Lake City ... It crosses the Sierras on Beckwourth Pass, which is 2000' lower than Donner Pass ... at the turn of the last century a railroad was built, and both Hwy 70 and the railroad are used today when Donner Pass is impassable due to weather or other closure ...


A highway bridge and train trestle over the Feather River ...

In any event, we had a beautiful day to ride down the Feather River Canyon ...


How to mount a license plate on your vintage Ducati ...


A covered bridge off Cherokee Road near Oroville ...


Some typical NorCalTT adventure routes ... Oregon Canyon Road ...


Scot's Moto Guzzi and Matt's Victor 441 on Oregon Canyon ...


We had a nice awards banquet when we got back to Auburn ... Barry, Anton and Jason with the ride trophies they won for participating on the 2012 NorCalTT ...


We loaded up the bikes after the awards banquet, and made it back to the city around 1:30 pm on Sunday night ...

This ride was super fun ... looking forward to next year!

see you around the campfire,
