Cheers guys. My only problem at the moment is the heat. Way too hot for me! I am English so i do like to complain about the weather

That coast along Big Sur is well worth visiting. Back in 1997 I rented a Honda 600 out of the Los Angeles area, rode up along the coast to Monterrey, and then east to Yosemite, returning to LA by the same route. Very nice ride...

Where are you going to be on Friday July 8 or Saturday July 9.
We were thinking of taking a lunch ride from Reno to Yosemite by way of Tioga Pass Hwy 120.
Will you be around there ?

We can ride down for lunch in Lee Vining, CA on Friday or Saturday.
If you are still in Tonopah you may want to go North to Gabbs, NV and the

I should be in Yosemite today. Havnt got good access to internet so not good at communicating at the moment. Hope i bump into you somewhere

January is a nice time to tour death valley. In the summer the majority of visitors are from other countries who don't realize the name "Death Valley" has a historical backstory. Head for the hills or coast and cool off. Up here in Montana the snow is still blocking some of the mountain roads.
