With the kids packed safely away with the grandparents, we took the opportunity to ride 2up on the 1150 GS all the way down to Death Valley. With the weatherman predicting rain, we packed up quickly and left about 12:30 on Sunday. We had a map printed off of the computer with hand written notes and a new GPS. A duffel bag full of camping supplies and minimal food. No concrete plans just looking for some sun and a little off-road 2up-ing. A few teaser pics--to start off. Off we go. Day 1- Sunday 4/17/11: HWY 395 from Susanville to Bishop, CA. Honey Lake Motocross Park is about 30 minutes from our house. They have been holding races for the last two days. Looks like the team race is about to start. Continuing down HWY 395 we ride into Reno, Nevada. They are doing their part. Just past Topaz Lake, the West Walker River is flowing quite nicely. Snowy foothills right before Mono Lake. Mono Lake up ahead. We stopped at the Owens Valley lookout before rolling into Bishop, CA. Found a decent hotel for $88. Ended the night with a few bottles of Pacifico. Day 2 coming up in next post.
