    Re: Best Day Ever. A Pashnit Motorcycle Tour.

    Next day, we ride up Santa Rosa Creek Rd, down Rossi's Driveway and across the Central Valley to the Sierra Nevada Mountains

    Goofy. Just plain goofy.

    The goal is one of the Southern Sierra's best hidden gems. Rd 23S16.

    The view at 7500 ft.

    If you look closely, you can see a thin line at center.

    That's Sherman Pass as it climbs out of the Kern River Valley and heads towards Nevada. And you thought you've ridden every road.

    Re: Best Day Ever. A Pashnit Motorcycle Tour.

    The Western Divide Hwy.

    Here it drops out the Sierra Nevada practically straight down.

    Imagine riding tight switchback corners for some 10 miles.

    Here's a screenshot from some hi-def video shot in slow-motion. A handy feature of the GoPro HD video camera...

    Day 3 begins with an early start to beat the traffic into Sequoia National Park.

    It works great and we encounter few other traffic for the entire hour of twisty road-riding it takes to get to the top of the mountain.

    What's interesting about this photo as we are standing on top of that shadow.

    Plus a view of the road we just came up.

    More rigging to get the shot.

    This angle is fun as you see the underside of the bike as the video plays.

    We've all come to see this.

    If you look very closely, you can see people on the left and right .

    How's that for scale.
