Ural does WMRS / Bishop Eastern Sierra's

Well I have been wanting to get down to the WMRS (White Mountain Research Station) ADV ride for a few years now. This year I was able to get the time off and made it a must do this summer. The wife (Marcia) wanted to ride down with me on the Ural so we made it happen.


First off................ Thanks to Stonewall for getting this ride rounded up and Hurty, I B A Fox (I will spell check that) and all the others who made this event happen.



Ok so Marcia and I headed for Bishop on Wednesday night after work. Here are the bikes ready to roll.








We rode from Napa CA to Angels Camp CA


That was pretty much it for day one. We didnt leave like I said tell after work so it was a short ride with dinner and a Hotel stop. Tomorrow the fun begins, Bodie & Mono Lake to Bishop.


Teaser shot of the next days ride. Yes we get off road.

Day 2 Bodie State Park & Mono Lake CA

We had clutches out by 8ish and headed over Sonora pass to Bridgeport CA Hwy 395. We stopped for a early lunch at a burger joint in Bridgeport and got fuel. Then we hit the road again down to the Bodie cut off.

This is high desert/plains eastern Sierra's. It was some of the most picture perfect riding we have ever seen. Sorry there are a lot of pics.

On the way into Bodie looking to the south towards Mono Lake










Notice the elevation

Bodie was one of the high lights of this trip. I could have spent all day walking around. Marcia didnt think it was worth an all day thing so we only stayed a few hours. We took a lot of pics here are a few. Bodie is a ghost town once a booming gold mine and lumber town.
