This California loop is approximately 2400 miles, starting in the central coast region of California and heading east through Cuyama Valley and the Carrizo Plains, east across the Central Valley, up Rancheria Road to the Sierra’s, North generally following the Pacific Quest Crest (PCQ) tracks, around Mount Shasta, though the Trinity Alps, down the Lost Coast including Usal Road and then down the coast home. I rode 80% of this ride last year, however the 20% I didn’t ride is what made me want to ride it again. It felt like unfinished business. Here is last years ride report . Last year I rode a KTM 990 Adventure, the size and weight of the bike along with some electrical gremlins caused me to regrettably bypass some of the more remote and rugged areas. I sold the KTM and bought a used Yamaha WR250R for this trip. I am doing the ride solo again. Here are the tracks California Loop 2013 Note - I had accidentally linked to last years tracks, now fixed.
