There were a few washed out spots.

I just used the cameras flash to navigate (like I did in the Burro Schmidt tunnel).

Great report. Lancaster and Palmdale are places that can and should be forgotten about...

I've got Yosemite, Sequoia, Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Bristlecone Pine, Devil's Postpile and Mojave National Preserve all within a single day's ride and I can get to them without any of the big city traffic. What do you have?

Brilliant.

I went to visit the in-laws in Redding for the first time. I thought to myself, "Why would you choose to live here?" Then I realized that Mt. Shasta, Lassen, coastal Redwoods, the Oregon Border, and the Sierra Nevada mountains can all be reached within an hour or two. Made me rethink it a little.

13 years of bad memories. However, I don't have a constant wind that makes the trees (what little there are) grow sideways.

Hijack off.

I spent May and June there one year and during the commute from Sausalito, where I was staying on a houseboat, to the theater district I would ride through two or three separate weather patterns, from "brisk" at the boat, cold-windy-foggy on the bridge, pleasant through GG Park, to 90˚ heat after the Haight.

Keep the reports coming. Great old bike. Back in the day, thats how people toured. BMW boxer or a Honda 750Four or a Sportster. Sleeping bag and tent strapped to it and go. No cell phones. No GPS, maybe paper maps, maybe not. When I was a kid camping with my family in the Sierras, guys would roll into the campgrounds on said bikes. I thought it was way cool then. Still do.
