We are going for a group ride in early March with a friend from Boonville. Did you stop in town to hear their unique "Boont" language? I have a Boont Code Book I've been studying. lol. I hope part of his plan is to take us out to the ocean and see what you got to see on this ride. We'll be going at a much slower pace as your bikes don't have as many cc's as your new or old bike. I have another friend who lives in Verdi (Reno). He said when the interstate was closed, some people's GPS's were directing them to take the Old Lincoln Highway (Henness Pass Road) which is the old road through Donner's Pass. Even with signs telling people not to drive the Henness Pass Rd., many people still tried. They needed to get towed out. I'm glad you were able to make it through without too much issue. Thanks for sharing. P.S. I'm still trying to figure out what your license plate says.
