    Then Bottle Rock Rd (not a single car!), Hwy 175 through Cobb & Hobergs, and over on Loch Lomand Rd. Destination Big Canyon Rd. BackRoads California wasn't over yet.

    When we got there, we discovered this little warning.

    Hey, it was the BackRoads California Tour. How bad could it be?

    I see now why they didn't want any vehicles on this road. We could park inside some of the pot holes.

    Gotta love the goat.

    Special thanks to the riders who signed up for this new Pashnit Tour!

    Conducting a BackRoads Tour has been an idea floating around for awhile, and despite the sun, rain, cold, snow, wet, potholes, and bumps- we all had a great time, as always. Good people, good food, great roads!

    We'll run this tour one more time in 2008 - June 27th, last weekend in June. The rain will have long gone for the season!

    Anyone interested, see you in Sausalito!! Details are here: http://www.pashnittours.com/tour_6.html

    Outstanding pics as usual Tim. Looks like the backroads tour is a great addition to the Pashnit tours arsenal. I'm glad to see the BMWs representing .

    Beautiful!

    Tim tells us all about his mods and farkles. Note the Ducati side bags, plus the RKA Saddlebags, spare gas tank, etc, etc. Yes, they tried to put on the cup holder, but couldn't find a place to put it.

    We're waiting for him to find a place to add the Expresso machine. Tim is big on his coffee.

    Once again... Tim, still master of "How much crap can I fit on a motorcycle!"

    Great tour and great pics (as usual!). That's a tour I would like to try, it really gets you off the beaten path!

    A fairly well known article about cold on a motorcycle, Season of the Bike, sums it up quite nicely.

    Thanks Tyler, makes a good screensaver. Shots like this are really rare for me as I rarely ride at night anymore. Just one of those moments in time.

    Hey Tim that's not a screensaver it's a background -- a screensaver is what you made on that CD with all of the fantastic photos

    Just had to wipe up the stuff good thing it didn't get on the keyboard -- what a adventure this turned out to be -- great write up and photos Tim!!

    Oh one of these days
