Re: The Grand Tour - Noble Pursuit of the Greatest Day

Looks enticing? Like no other road I've ridden in all of California. Sandy. Ultimate Goat. All paved.

Re: The Grand Tour - Noble Pursuit of the Greatest Day

Some more pics of Rd 23S16, one of the Southern Sierra Nevada's most unknown roads. Until now.





Mike was pretty jazzed. He'd originally seen the new CA Moto Road webpage I'd written awhile back --> 23S16
and been bugging me for awhile to include this in the tour.

The Greatest Day says Mike!





In case you'd like to go check it out yourself.

Re: The Grand Tour - Noble Pursuit of the Greatest Day

Onward to the Sequoia National Forest - most of our riders had never seen a Giant Sequoia before!

John & Karen are my treehuggers. This one is actually moderate in size.



Our tour group. Mike rocks.

L to R: Bob, Steve, Tim, Jim, Tom, Billy, Tim, Bill, John & Karen, Brent & Andrea. And of course Mike. Good times!

Re: The Grand Tour - Noble Pursuit of the Greatest Day

One of my favorite shots.

Takes a moment to look into the photo and comprehend the scale.
