Mountain Passes, Ride Report

We finally took a day to ride the mountains on Friday. The roads are in really good shape for riding. Most of the snow is gone and the roads are clear. Going on a Friday, there was no traffic at all. We rode 88, 89, some of 395, then back on 4.



We had to stop and admire the view every now and then. That's Barry5k with the white helmet.



All the bikes, posing for a pic...



And the group at Alpine Lake...

Re: Mountain Passes, Ride Report

Seems like a good time was had by all; you picked a great route! When I group-ride with my brother and his friends, I have to let the v-twins lead... It's the only way they can keep up in the twisties!

Mormon Immigrant trail is another great ride too (between 50 and 88).

Re: Mountain Passes, Ride Report

LOL. These Vtwins keep up pretty well.

I like Mormon too. Still haven't been across it yet this year even though it's in my backyard. Soon I hope.

Sunday, we did some forest roads (Eleven Pines, Blacksmith Flat, Mosquito Ridge) from Wentworth Springs Rd up to Foresthill. I had only ever rode this route on my Harley but it was an exceptional ride on the RT.

A couple of photos from that route below.
