Took my little scooter up over 9000' today

I usually hang out in the battle scooter section but none the less...

Went for a ride today with a buddy up into the Sierra's. Shaver/Huntington Lake if you know the area.

This is me, there just isn't a manly way to sit on a scooter.


We met at 7:00 and hit the road. He rides a Suzuki GS500F


We stopped in Shaver for breakfast, then on to Huntington.



The Lake is in the background, we actually started on our way up to Florence and Edison Lake, but I was concerned about fuel and honestly didn't quite like crawling along at 15 mph on a single lane non-maintained road so we turned back.

The road is narrow and really bumpy but the view is great.




We didn't stop for pictures but we crossed Kaiser Pass, my GPS said something over 9000'!

All in all it was a great ride. I just need to do something about my "image" on this thing though...

Looks like a nice ride. Always wanted to ride and eat up there after seeing a show by Huell Howser.

That looks like my kind of road. Maybe I'll take my Sport City out west next year and see how it does at 10,000+ feet.

Yep, I think it's called "Big Sandy Project" or something like that. I saw that episode just a couple of months ago.

Klaviator, I though of some of your ride reports on the SC. To be honest, the main road was beautifully paved and a joy to ride.

Hello

Ya look like an inmate to me.

Man I would love to take my Burgman 400 out to that area. It handles pretty well on two tracks and such. Thanks for sharing.

Nice report thanks! I ride a Silver Wing scooter and love it. I have had it up over 10000 feet and with the fuel-injection I never noticed it!

Keep on scooting!
