1000 miles on the edge

We are working hard on wearing the sides of the tires so they match the flat spots created by interstate runs. Joshua Tree is beautiful. If we had an unloaded bike we would have ridden more side roads but the soft sand is a turn off on a 1000 lb. machine. We hit the Palms to Pine Hiway which can compete with any road for turns per mile. Some of these roads are like one lane with a yellow stripe down the middle. Lots of video... We then headed back to LaVerne for the night. We cooled off in the pool and fired up the grill for dinner with Kit.

The next morning we headed up to Sequoia Park via the Angeles forest hwy to 14 to 178 that took us into Lake Isabella. We ran north from there to Kernville and Johnsondale then up to Quaking Aspen and Springville. A stop for ice tea (about 100 degees) and directions to Junction 37 where the waiter questioned our road choice until he realized we were on a bike. We understood his hesitation after we hit the road. It was the most narrow, twisted road we have been on. Basically a bike path down a mountain. Way cool. What a work out! Gotta run but will continue later today!
