Some photos of the Harley Ultra Classic. Always working on getting some sweet shots of the bike.



Photo Rule: Always shoot two. See any difference? Subtle, but difference is the background. Position of the bike is virtually the same. Background sets the scene, tells the story. The 2nd one, the camera is slightly higher in turn getting a better view of the background.



Over the dash shot. Then it was through the dreamy 22 mile section up and over the Coast Range to Legget, and on to Fortuna for the night. Good roads, good day to out be riding.

Day 2 of our ride of NorCal and Ready to ride!!



Out Hwy 36, and north on Forest Rd 1. We had a hankerin' we wouldn't get far on Forest Rd 1 (South Fork Mtn Rd), our first clues were on Lamb Creek Grade as you climb up the mountain side. Note the grade. Gettin' up there to the top of the ridgeline to around 6000 ft.

Trees everywhere. Sometimes just enough room to ride off the road and around the tree. Possibly we should call this the Pashnit Adventure Ride!!



And around we go. Could have shot a lot of pics like this, but the Ultra Classic is not the best stop-n-go camera platform like the Busa is.



Our local rider, Hugh, mentioned all these trees were most likely felled by high winds in just the last week. The locals come up and pillage all the good wood, much of it was cut with chainsaws right there in the road. After May 1st, you can get a free permit to cut 10 cords of wood from the National Forest, and the locals will come up and clean up and cart off all this wood off the road.

Beats trompin' through the woods!

What happens when you reach 5800 feet in April.



But oh the view!!

Pics like this are why I have heaped so much praise on this goat trail of a road all these years of working on this site. Under that marine layer in the distance is the Pacific Ocean.

I was mentioning riding off-road.

Shaun on the Harley - this is heading back down now from 5800 ft. Steve is moving a log in the background.




Dick on the Screamin' Eagle- note we are pretty much level with the adjacent mountain tops.



Joe is a police officer and rode up from San Diego for this ride. Joe mentioned he'd never ridden through Northern California before, only SoCal, and was just blown away by the roads and mountainous scenery.

While he's on his new Hayabusa, he sold his Goldwing to get this.



Mike on the matching Harley Ultra Classic to the one I had

Incredible view. Just incredible. This is Lamb Creek Grade (no sign denotes this), Forest Rd 1 nearing Hwy 36 in the valley below. Hwy 36 is as famous as it is b/c it winds through that valley below up and over several low mountain ranges.

'Hills Curves 140 Miles' says the sign.




Pashnit Harleys



Joe's Busa & Steve's Seca. Steve had ridden down from Oregon for this tour, has ridden his Seca 900 all over the place, and ridden on several Pashnit Tours.
