Thanks for leading this ride Eric. I just rode the first day, but it was a lot of fun to ride the turns on Highway 49.
Fun fact: Highway 49 is known as the “Golden Chain Highway” because it passes through several historic mining towns.
I also took a couple of pics from our first break at the Big Canyon overlook before Yuba Pass.
Here are Rick and Dave Keller busy not checking out the view:
Here’s Dean ready to saddle up after talking to the Bay Area guys with their rental BMWs:
The weather was perfect going over Yuba Pass, but as we descended to Nevada City it started to get really hot. We stopped for lunch in Grass Valley at a place called Margarita’s. One star less than Los Dos Hermanos in Sierraville, I would say, but it was worth it for the A/C. Nevada City was totally jammed with tourist traffic and we didn’t even stop there.
Rides: KLR650, KX250
