Just one question... Why the tarps are wrapped around the arse end of those vehicles in the car park? Never seen that before...

Supposedly the marmots get into the wiring of the cars. So for the people that are staying a few days, they wrap they cars. I worried about it because of all the exposed wires on a GS but never saw any

eatpasta: Great photos and nice RR! Your pictures remind me of why California is such a great place to ride.

And since when is your sweet wife going to have a baby??!! Why, it was just yesterday that you guys got married!

(Congrats on the impending parenthood!)

I really appreciated those pictures. I grew up in Tehachapi and spent a lot of time riding motos in the Lancaster/Mojave area, as well as four-wheeling between Tehachapi and Kernville.

Eat Pasta? Sure!

Yokohl Valley Road is one of my favorite twisty country roads. Just as I reach the beginning I see a GS rider stopped at the intersection.
I waved and continued on my way. He had so many stickers on his boxes I was unable to spot the ADV one.
I was starting to have a little fun when I noticed the big GS catching up.





I made a quick stop to shoot the big GS in its natural environment.




The guy was railing the corners.










I had a hard time catching up and probably only did because he stopped to shoot me.




Now that I was in front again, there was no way I was losing that position. He did a great job keeping up.
Every time I looked over my shoulder he was still there.



That was a ton of fun!

By time we reach Three Rivers I was starving. I stopped in front of The Pizza Factory. The GS rider pulled alongside and stuck out his hand. "Eat Pasta?" he says. I look towards the pizza place. "Uh, sure. Let's do it." I think it took him a couple more tries before he made me understand eatpasta was his ADV moniker.
