Loreto > La Paz, 368km, La Paz > Carbo return

  Loreto was such a pretty little town, I really liked it. Started off with mountains on one side and the ocean with islands on the other, then twisties up over the mountain and I thought can it get any better than this ….necminute, flattt!! for quite a lot of kms.  Still a good ride […]

Guerrero Negro > Loreto, Mexico – 429km

On the road by 8:00, riding through very flat desert, then the mountains and eventually to the coast.  The latter half of the day was so scenic. We were stopped several times again today by army checkpoints, complete with slung rifles.  They weren’t too interested in us though, other than where we were from and […]

San Vincente > Guerrero Negro, Mexico – 532 km

Started off through vineyards, then prickly pear farms, on through more intensive agriculture under very long shade cloth, then we hit cactus land. Most of the time the road was in good condition again, still a lot of mountains around although travelled part of the day through very flat desert country.  So all in all, […]

We are in Mexico

San Diego, California > San Vincente, Mexico – 298km What a morning.  We rode out of USA without the slightest interest from any border authorities, then straight into Mexico, again without the slightest interest from anyone.  However, we knew we had to go through Immigration, though we didn’t see it, and also get Vehicle Permits. […]

On the road again…

We are back… Its time to leave these two little cuties, Charlie and Cory, (a couple of my favorite photos) and head back for LA.           Charlie                                                 […]

A day in San Fransisco, then back to LA

So today we put on our tourist hats – first it’s a boat trip to Alcatraz Then off to Pier 39 on Fisherman’s Wharf for some fresh fish for lunch. There are a number of older Asian people going through the rubbish bins collecting plastic bottles – they get money for them in the States. […]

Bridgeport > San Fransisco, 441km

We backtracked a few km’s to visit the deserted gold mining town of Bodie.  Once the gold ran out the people left and because they were taxed on what goods they were carrying, they only took what they needed and left the rest.  It now has decades of dust over it . Some of the […]

Fresno > Bridgeport, 370km (Yosemite)

Today we visited Yosemite.  First we took a look at the Mariposa Grove and learnt a little of the history of the area. Then off to Glacier Point, such a stunning viewpoint on a perfect day.   Looking straight down… We are being followed 🙂 Yes Emily is there too, just can’t see her. We […]

LA > Fresno, 532km

  We had a bit of a tiki tour around LA taking in some of the sights, then picked up the Harley. And then there were three.. Left LA via the freeway over the mountains then turned off toward the Sequoia National Park. Never seen so many of these in one area before. Came across […]

Hesperia > Thousand Oaks, 212km > LA

We are meeting up with our son Jordan and Emily (his wife – our other daughter!) in LA so we calculated a bit of “just in case” time in our schedule so that if we had a hiccup along the way, we could still meet on time.  Have had no hiccups so that means we […]
