I rode from Santa Cruz to Paso robles on hwy 25 past Hollister hills. Stayed there a few days. Then from Paso out to Bakersfield and Lake Isabella. My goal that day was motel 6 in Mammoth. Fun ride up 395. Next day I rode north on 395 to goose lake oregon. I met family there and camped 3 nights. In the modoc forest area I rode around 250 miles of nice smooth dirt roads. Great scenery, nobody around up there. Goose lake campground was nice. Hot showers included for 17$.
Then I headed back on some nice scenic roads out by pyramid lake. Looped around Reno on the east side. Doing 80 mph for at least 3 hrs i made it to bishop. Camped at Big pine. Next day went south to Sherman pass road and over the mountains all the way to Ducor. That was the best 100 miles of my trip. Planning Death valley in january.
