We will be back. From what we saw of Usal, it would have been a nice day.


oldtrucks-
Glad to have inspired a new direction. It is always hard to find new stuff in the same old roads I travel over and over.
I have taken the back way to Oroville several times. From Nevada City- 49/Moonshine/Marysville/Oregon Hill/LaPorte/Forbestown. It is a nice alternative. If you haven't taken 162 East of Oroville after it turns into the Oroville/Quincy highway, put that on your list too.

We missed it by a day, heading over to the coast the weather was great, by the time we got into Fort Bragg it was foggy and we had rain and fog along the Lost Coast.

Spectacular Views from Mendocino Pass



Herding Cattle Along Sherwood Rd



Felt Like Lewis and Clark When We Made It To The Ocean




Even the Rain along the Lost Coast Wasn't Too Bad

He parked and put down his kickstand, but it didn't quite deploy. 600 pounds of motorcycle and gear ungracefully laid gently to the tarmac. I of course started laughing. Laughing so hard in fact, that I failed to notice that with the angle of the gutter, my bike was precariously upright on its kickstand. As I dismounted, I pushed off my bike and it toppled over in the other direction. There we were two fluorescent morons on the side of the I-80. A car honked at us. Truckers were laughing as they rumbled by. Truly humiliating and funny as hell. I wish I would have gotten a photo.
Kinda like "Long Way Around" with the daily tipping of the bikes onto Terra Firma. Somehow Ive done 28000 miles on my DR650 with out it taking a dirt nap,you guys are doing great though.
Fern Canyon is in my sights for a camping trip soon.

on the topic of unexpected tip overs...

Camping in Chicken Alaska two years ago and needed to make a trip to the facilities late at night -- so I took the bike as it was several hundred yards away. Put the bike on the side stand when I returned and woke up to fine her napping

Yikes! Did you replace your divot?
I routinely endo/crash/thrash my dirt bikes into all sorts of rocks/holes/slimepits,I really try to keep the bigger bikes upright.
But you never know when your number is up.
