6/18/07, one-day trip to Lassen National Park, CA

So, my buddy Mark came up with the awesome idea to go to Lassen national park. He posted a picture of the route, it looked good, so we went.



<edit>

Some details:

From Davis to Lassen NP and back: 431 miles

Gas stops: at Newville, Shingletown, and again in Chico. Newville-Shingletown =110 miles, Shingletown-Chico=120 miles.

Here's one of the many dirt roads we traversed today



zee BMW performed admirably



Crap road



Potholed, then patched. Cracked, then patched.

Here's Mark, giving you half a barf salute



Shoulda done it the right way, karma's a bitch

(kickstand folded by itself somehow)

At Corning, we met up with Kent, Bill, and Doyle. Our humble group of an FZR6, CBR600RR, and an R1100S quickly turned into a motley crew involving SV650s and Hayabusas

That above pic was at a restaurant in Shingletown, and we continued up the road toward Lassen (which was only 18 miles or so up from there). The entrance fee was $5 per motorcycle ($10 for cars) but once inside, we were treated to nice roads, amazing scenery, and even some roadside wildlift.

Here's the road leading up to the park






Here's the group

Here's one for you guys

Perhaps I should've put it on the center stand

Whatever, it's still hot!



On this trip, I had three fill-ups, after 110 miles, 111 miles, then 120 miles. I used 2.8, 2.75 and 2.6 gallons, respectively. So, I averaged 42mpg, which isn't bad for a fully-loaded liter+ boxer with the frontal area of a barn door, moving at 50-80mph No soreness, no aches, no numbness (though we did do only 430 miles in 12 hours); riding the R1100S was a pleasure!

My bike was hating the altitude.

as far as some of the roads go...

Leesville Lodega & Lodega Stonyford are nice and goaty with some gravel sections, perfect for a dual sport/motard or an adventur tourer, or idiots haha.
Manton is great for high speed runs.
89 was sweet in and out of the park.
I liked 32 kinda dirty and rough but not any worse than the Berryessa area.

pic time

Leesville Lodega Rd.





Miran is so friendly



I need a better camera



Dani got it from all sides
