Back in early July, my Dad rode out to LA from Michigan and we took a 9 day, 9 state, 3600 mile road trip together. While not really ADV riding, I figured I'd share some photos of the nice roads and scenery.

The ride


Avenue of the Giants, Nor Cal


CA-3, north of Trinity Lake, Nor Cal. I am convinced that CA-36 and CA-3 are some of the best in the country, due to the flow of the road, the quality of the road, very low traffic (any traffic are usually locals, and they drive FAST), and the varied terrain.


Crater Lake


The very hilly and rugged NE Oregon. The hills feel MUCH bigger then they look.


US-12, Lolo Pass, Idaho. Ride it first thing in the morning, and no one is out there. Not a very technical road, but it is over 100 miles of high speed sweepers. Keep it in 6th, and just let it flow.


US-212, Bear Tooth Scenic Highway, Montana and Wyoming.


US-212, Bear Tooth Scenic Highway, Montana and Wyoming.


Roadside sign denoting the intersection of The Mormon, The California, The Pony Express, and The Oregon Trail. This is a paved road side sign, but it is probably 30 miles from the spot I tried to find 2 years ago when I passed through the area on the dirt roads of the Continental Divide Trail. Out there is a wooden post that notes a more accurate intersection of the 4 dirt trails....never found that wooden post though.

Looks like a great ride, especially to be able to do it with your father. As usual, fantastic pics! Any thoughts of expanding the RR?

Thanks all! Being able to ride with my old man definitely an honor. Even though my Mom doesn't ride, and my sister only seldom rides, it has been a common glue and interest that our whole family supports. Gotta give my Mom props, most women would flip out over my Dad's stable of bikes. As another wise old man once told me, a wife can have their husband chasing motorcycles or chasing women, so pick one.

Yep, that is one of over thirteen or fourteen machines in his garage now...I lost count a few years ago.

I may, just behind on a lot of things right now. I'm still buried in thousands of photos I have yet to post anywhere from Asia a few months ago, and have a few busy months coming up. Hopefully I can hash out some sort of ride report in the near future.

I agree. Isaac, I'm glad to see you and your father are making these rides a regular part of your routine. Your photos are always excellent and I'm sure an expanded RR would be much enjoyed by all.
