    I am riding from Temecula to Virgin, Utah either Friday afternoon around 3:00 PM or Saturday morning around 4:00 AM. Riding home Sunday afternoon. Quick, hot trip, up the boring I15 to work on my house. Just looking to see if anyone wants to ride out. Free camping at my ranch in the middle of nowhere. Go explore Zion and the surrounding areas while I work and ride home on Sunday.
    It's about 425 Miles, roughly 7 hours, gas in Barstow and Vegas.

    Ok so last weekend turned out a trip up to San Jose in a car via the boring rt5 and ride back down to L.A. along rt 101 with a half-hearted camping attempt near a "day use only" campground west of Gilroy. Sure enough a park ranger told us to leave even though we weren't technically in a campground, but still on county park territory over which he apparently has jurisdication. Stealth camping was not really an option given we had a car.

    But, now that I've got my other bike as well (an '09 Yamaha FZ6S Fazer) - I'm down to put it to some good use next weekend!

    Either Lake Isabella (as posted before); or TV Tower Road in Los Padres N.F.

    @Scooter_Junkie_Girl - nice trip as well! This route's a more than a bit out of the way for us on coastal SoCal tho :-( Keep your chin up and rubber down!

    Holy cow, thanks for sharing that Sherman pass route. Been searching google earth for a way to connect from Sequioas to 395. How was the trip? I was up there last weekend as well exploring around by myself. Found Portugese meadow, pretty neat spot. Alot of closures still in place.

    Oh, nevermind, I looked closer. Sherman pass is the back way fro Kern River to Kennedy meadows. Got it! I wish there was a way to connect from Bishop and go west through the sierra nevadas

    Thanks! I looked it up. I have done that route from the top, from Springville to Kern. Awesome canyons!

    Started in santa clarita, then fresno, then up to Huntington Lake, then three rivers, then Springdale up and through those canyons exploring some fire roads, and into kern, then home. Nice weekend adventure
