I really wanted to go on this tour but the fates conspired against me. I'm really hoping I can go on the sept grand or sierra tours.

Great pics. Unreal scratching the ram mount! Big ol lean angles!

Beautiful pictorial trip report. :2thumbsup

Considering 108 Sonora Pass a great quality road, how do you grade the surface quality of CA4 Ebbetts Pass and Monitor Pass?

Sonora Pass - Hwy 108 is more high speed with better pavement I think, but nice and tight headed up the backside. Once you get down to Strawberry, it's a boring ride down to Sonora and we like to skip Sonora altogether and ride Middle Camp Rd to Big Hill Rd. Great shortcut into Columbia.

Ebbetts Pass - Hwy 4 is very smooth up to the ski hill, but the 20 miles of 1-lane road across the top is unique in all the state. With no traffic, it's great fun! View is amazing. Being up there with all the snow this season was definitely a treat!

Do what Tim M does for all the tours, leave home at 4:30am, arrive Livermore 8:00am for tour meeting. On the last day of the ride, you are somewhere in Nor Cal, and its a 6 hour ride to Central Cal.

You will not regret. The Sierra Roads are a special ride.

Were these pictures taken on the spring or fall 2010 Sierra tour?
