Memorial Day Road Trip

Want to avoid crowds ... Places you want to go on a bike ... Eastern Oregon has some real gems. And even better, very few people. I like that.  Although, we had a freeloading passenger :-)  

Lots and lots of dirt. All you can eat. 

Came across several original homesteads that were in decay in the middle of nowhere.

Lori did well. Lots of off-road. We also did section 1 of the Washington Back Country Discovery Route on the way home. Sadly, no snow. Not even mud!! 

The custom plate looks so bad-ass with the snake trying to consume it.  Unfortunately, I'm beginning to look like a used up Harley rider with my white beard and less like a Grizz :-(

Camping at Crooked River

Entering John Day Painted Hills Unit

A happy lady and good looking bike

Strange mounds abound everywhere...

Sew these next few images together and get a fantastic panorama

Everyone wanted to ride

Seattle-To-Los Angeles Escape Route by Motorcycle

Finally put the finishing touches on the new video.

A business trip mixed with vacation.

Please enjoy with a fine beer, good wine, etc... Hi-definition and stereo (headphones). Zone out and relax.

The best stuff, IMHO, is in the middle of the video... so stick with it. I think you will really enjoy it.

Featured locations include:
  • Mammoth, Ca,
  • Convict Lake,
  • Inyo Mountains (11,000 feet!!!),
  • Ancient Bristlecone Forest,
  • June Lakes, Ca
  • Mono Lake,
  • Bridgport, Ca,
  • Lake Abert,
  • Bodie, Ca (an abandoned ghost town from the 1800's)
  • Goose Lake,
  • John Day Fossil Beds,
  • Sierra Mountains
and ALL the goodies in between, mostly along the I-395 corridor. IMHO, one of the best highways in the western United States. The only way to travel to SoCal from Seattle.

Until next time...
