A few weeks ago, we decided that we need to get out again - just for a weekend completely gone from pretty much everything. Taking the bikes is always a good thing as it relaxing for the body (except for body parts you sit on) and mind (except when it gets too packed or curvy).
For us it is something we enjoy immensely as it is time we have together, we can talk all day long through our Sena bluetooth intercom or just let the countryside pass by and enjoy the ride. We do both - depending on the mood. Often enough we have the intercom on standby and just ride, but whenever we want to talk, we can.
So, what we decided to do was a longer trip than our normal short (half-) day trips. And Lake Tahoe is always a good destination. Therefore we planned on repeating the route I had done on my R1200GS in summer 2010: Bay Area - Central Valley - CA132 - CA49 - CA88 - Carson City (stay there overnight) - CA395 to Mono Lake - CA120 through Yosemite and then the straight way home.
Here are some impressions from the trip:
|Somewhere along CA49|
|Beautiful Lake along CA88|
|Having Fun Along 88|
|More Fun on 88|
|Andrea - Concentrating|
|Organized Chaos after arriving in the Hotel|
|Yosemite National Park - CA120|
|Proof we were there!|
|Must have mirror photo|
|As always - a stop at Don Pedro Reservoir|
|Tiger with Luggage for the Weekend|
We had an awesome trip and learned quite a few things for longer trips on these bikes. More to follow in a separate post!
