Thanks! Credit for the photography goes to Ghostryder on that one!
We did a little series..........everytime I saw an empty road, I got the urge to get a shot like that...
It will continue on................

The last one I tried, leaving Mammoth, I got escourted off the 395 by 3 CHP cars. OOPS!
Of course, there were no cars AT ALL and then as I get the self portrait shot almost set, up roll 3 sets of headlights... I did try to wave them by......

Here's where the shot would have been..........

Thanks!
You know what? I really had a great, fun time!
Even though it wasn't too far from home, and only about 5.5 days total, it was the fact that I just slowed down and took the time to really enjoy my surroundings.
Something we all need to do more often.
Good for the soul.

Holy Mackerel!

DP - What a great trip report; thanks! Your pictures really are ace; you have a good eye. (Actually, they both seem quite nice. )

I can't decide if I like your various "texture" shots the best (most artistic) or your "ride along shots (most motivating). But all your shots are really enjoyable - except, maybe, the bug collection .

The goofy ones made me laugh. "How to land and not break your helmet" seemed particularly instructive.

Two questions: 1) Where did you REALLY take those road shots? ... Not California - no cars in sight.
2) Where did you come up with the moniker "Darth Peach"? I crack up every time I see it. Actually the names people come up with, and the quotes are almost as much fun as all the ride reports. I'm VERY jealous of the creativity of so many of you ADV riders. I've been racking my brain for a year and still no clever handle comes to mind. Wait! maybe that's the problem: no brain, no mind, no name!!

Anyhow, DP, I'm now waiting anxiously for your next ride report. Merky Buccups!
