Sierra/Yosemite ride 8-19.20-2003

The ride was wonderful, no tickets, accidents or problems of any kind. infrandom, F4ichic, Kevo and I started off Monday with the Sonora pass (108), a fun road and stayed in Bishop. Tuesday was up 395, over 120, lunch in the Yosemite valley, and 120 home (I went to the bux meet first of course).
I really love that section of 120 from Priest to 49, the one where you're on the side of the cliff/valley, nice tight clean turns, friggen awesome road (got some great video of it too).
In all the ride was only 670 miles, with 350 the first day. I thought it was gonna be a much longer ride, guess I'll have to go more often since its not that far.

well, frandom will right up a huge ride report soon, and he took millions of pics too, so i'll post up the good ones I have and y'all can check back later for his.

at least we found a "bux" in the Voughns (safeway) in Bishop. bad things may have happened without it.

NCB- it was nice on 108, a lil warm on the other side, then nice coming back over on 120, pretty warm in Yosemite, and not too bad coming home. I did see a bank sign saying 97 on the way the first day going through the valley before the sierras.

nice = warm, like 80's, maybe 90.

Um, probably no ride report from me. Mostly cause it was just a standard ride... nothing out of the ordinary. Everyone rode at their pace and as a result we all just had a fun time with no bad stuff.

For me personally I was trying to get some pics of the road, I'm no Andy though. I need a lot more practice, I also need to setup the remote better as this position was not working the best for me. However, not the PTT switch for the chatterbox. I can't believe I didn't hook this thing up sooner. The chatterbox is also stowed in the trunk of the bike, no more box on my helmet.
