What happens when a bunch of BARFers get stuck on the Sonora Pass during a hailstorm?




Pure comedy!

We had a great group, great weather, no breakdowns other than flats, and nobody got hurt.
I would leave on another trip tomorrow with the same group if I could
I will remember this trip for a very long time

Those are kind words Paul.
I had a great time too and enjoyed riding with You, Jill and Jeremy.
The trip went very well with almost no hiccups.
The scenery and places we visited were awesome.
If there was one trip to go on in US this is the one!
Thanks for leading the way!

My wife & I were caught in the same hailstorm on 120. We'd taken 108 on the way to Mammoth Lakes on Friday for the weekend, and I'd wanted to go back, but RacerWife insisted on going through the park. Looks like you got it worse than we did.

RE: flat tire picture... at least it was a metric wrench.

ROFL... I hope he gave you a break. Don't they have to take you to jail at 30 over? I know that was true in Minnesota.
