Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep track of the fires. I did a road from johnsondale to alta sierra hwy 155, one of the best scenic rides ive done up there. Fires had done lots of damage when I went last year.

" Downhill sand looks scary on a 500lb bike."

Look a lot scarier going up hill!
I came down the power line road just North of Hwy 40 ending up in Ludlow with soft sand in my jeep in 4wd low range wheels churning the whole time. No way could have I gone up slope.

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.
chicago and notacop like this.
