Talking wazzuFreddo does Hawthorne (¿otra vez?)

Day 1:

Starting out early at 7:08 AM, rolling out of Hayward.




Stopped by the bux on the way to the ride meeting point to have a cup of coffee and get my pose on



My bike sitting all primed for the trip



After I get my morning java fix, I head over to the 7-11 to gas up the bike and meet up with the group. This doesn't look right.



This it better, who knew there were two 7-11s on Las Positas Rd



Rolled up thru Yosemite, didn't stop much since I seemed to have a clear shot through all the campers and touristos. Stopped of for lunch at Tioga Gas Mart where I had a great steak caesar salad.

I met up with flying_hun and unckledunkle and we decided to continue on 120 and take the combination of 6-360-95 into Hawthorne. It added an extra hour but the stretch of 120 from 395 to 6 made it all worth it. Here is a picture from the summit



Then we stopped in Benton quick, I downed a Gatorade quick and we talked to a guy on an FJR and his friend on a new Concourse, they were on their way back to Florida after touring to the west coast. View from Benton



That was about it for the day.

It was great riding with you too. I forgot to ask what your plate means though. I spent almost all of the way through Yosemite trying to figure it out

Day 2:

The second day we woke up late and skipped breakfast. I decided to ride with Dub713, Bzworthy, and Greener, heading east out of town.

Ruins of a mining town on Nevada-360



We stopped for a while at the Junction of NV-360 and US-6 for a while. That is where we saw these wild horses.



Crappy Digital Zoom Version



Bzworthy and Dub713



The bikes, 62 Miles outside of BFE



Further down highway 6, somebody decided the desert was a good place to park their submarine



From there we rode Benton Crossing Road and went up 395 to Mammoth. Here is a shot of the vista above Mammoth.



After that we zipped down the hill to Devil's Post Pile and then over to Lee Vining for a late lunch. Dub and Greener went back across 120 twards Benton while Bzworthy and I took the quick way back to Hawthorne on 167.

The next day I didn't take many pictures since I wanted to get home fast. Went and ate breakfast at Jacks

Breakfast of Champions



I packed up and headed out of Hawthorne at 11:30; by 1:00 I was at the top of Sonora Pass Almost ran out of gas because of that.

When I made my one and only stop at Cold Springs after 150 miles, the SV took on 3.9 gallons in the 4.2 gallon tank

From there I headed back to Hayward direct though the valley heat, getting home 5 hours after I left Hawthorne.

Here is what I looked like after all the bugs and heat. All in all, a very fun weekend, thanks goes out to No Gall for setting it all up.

Thanks for posting the additional pics. We saw the horses out there too. Very neat. Though I must say that I'm a bit disappointed in BARF that no one has made any phallic references to that roadside attraction on the trailer.
