Eat Pasta? Sure!

You may have noticed the fuel light on in the video. I barely made it into Springville running on fumes.
After gassing up I turned onto another favorite road I've ridden a few times before.
I see a GS rider stopped near the turnoff to Yokohl Valley Road. I wave and continue.

The road is a twisty and rustic country road that serves as a sweet short-cut over to Sequoia National Park.

I see that big GS behind me...





I sped up, but could not shake that big GS rider, so I pulled over and snapped him passing.




As he disappeared around the corner I stowed the camera and the chase was ON!






It took forever and some insane riding before I finally had him in sight again. He pulled over to snap pics and I got out in front.





I couldn't shake that GS no matter what.






We had a ton of fun...





on Yokohl Valley Road.










I had worked up an appetite. When we got to Three Rivers I pulled into the parking lot for the Pizza Factory.
The GS rider pulled up alongside, stuck out his hand and asked, "Eat pasta"? I looked at the restaurant and said, "Sure, let's do it".

It took a couple more tries until I understood he was introducing himself. He goes by eatpasta here and I had seen some of his posts before. Doh!







After chatting with eatpasta he carried on and I went inside to fill up on pizza. The pizza was pretty average.






eatpasta did a Day Trippin' report here: 2-Day 800 Mile Epic California Ride


I find it amazing that ride reporters from different places can cross paths like this.
Here are a few photos he got of me. Nice riding with you, eatpasta! That was a blast.

Finally caught up to this guy.... who was hauling balls



I followed him for awhile.... he was probably wondering why but I noticed he was an ADV











at three rivers he finally pulled off and I introduced myself. He was a super nice guy and he gave me his card. Now I need to FIND that card so I can PM him....
