4 K1600G T's in NorCal

These are from another forum but are some GREAT videos of 4 K1600GT's playing in NorCal


Here are a series of short videos showing all the traffic, lousy road conditions and uncomfortable weather.

Re: 4 K1600G T's in NoCal

Ok I watched a couple of the videos and they were really great. I must ask though, is the road thru Ebbetts Pass a two lane (two way) road or just one lane (one way)? Thanks....Rick H.

Re: 4 K1600G T's in NoCal

That would be a two way road. Lots like it in N CAL. Usually no traffic on those roads. Have to stay alert for the occasional vehicle. I will be doing hwy 36 this weekend, Can't wait.

I am coming up from L.A. and arriving into Shasta Saturday early evening (leaving Friday at 1:00 puts me into Bishop for the evening, then on Saturday at o dark 30 on the road up around Lake Tahoe and into Shasta). Then on Sunday, I am taking 36 to the coast and then looping back around on 299. I will be on my RT. Monday a.m. I have a ride in at Russell Day Long to tweak the seat on the bike, then I have to slab it back home on the 5.

I will be on a silver RT.

Here's a few more. The fly-bys are kind of fun. The last one was one of my favorite roads on the trip.

Re: 4 K1600G T's in NoCal

Fabulous videos! Do you use a Contour Camera? and where/how do you mount it to keep it so steady?


Not only are the rides you documented terrific, but the video work is terrific as well

If you have time, head south on 1 to Stewarts Point. Then take Stewarts Point road inland... You'll love it. Takes you about 30-40 miles into Geyserville.

From the Geyserville side, take Skaggs Springs Road (it turns to Stewart Points Road out in the middle, about where you can hear the deliverance banjo music).

Stewart's Point/Skaggs Springs is one of our best kept secrets. Don't tell anyone lol
