OMG beautiful sky. Great trip. Watching the relive, after vacaville I had no idea where you were. Makes me want an adventure bike, but I'm clumsy enough on pavement ..

Hi 89fj,
yes, running into Brian and getting to see his time-lapse images of the comet and Milky Way was pure serendipity.

Hi Lonester, we were sorry to hear about your crazy incident and that you'd hurt your hand ... hope you are healing up and that the bike is OK.

Hi chickenfried,
yes, the Relive is fun, but not a lot of info about the roads. Maybe if I buy a membership instead of using the free version I could add a layer that shows road names ... I'm pretty clumsy on a dual-sport, myself, so I just make up for it by being slow ...

couple more pics: m0t0_ryder turned us on to this fun, cool-temp-wise spot on the Trinity River where Rush Creek Road meets Trinity Dam Blvd very close Lewiston. Cary and I made a nice loop out of Hwy 3, Rush Creek, Trinity Dam back to Hwy 3 on Friday afternoon:



Schnitzel ready to go in his groovy "Pet Palace" on the 2017 Yamaha FJ-09. the blue truck with the kayak is m0t0_ryder's rig.



a boy and his dog ... see you all in the Mendocino National Forest ...

Thanks John for another great ride report. I'm living vicariously through you, WoodsChick and others! Wanna go MySelf.

Wonderful pics from Brian the photographer. Nothing like a big open sky to complement scenic mtn vistas

Always an inspiration John. I never would have known about Weaver Bolly without your reports - made it up at the end of the rally last year.

I now have have a couple more destinations to add to my list.

told everyone that you taught me how to get pics of my bike under the watch tower at the very top ... finally made it this year after learning from you!

Also....
should’ve kidnapped you with the WR250 ... Weaver Bolly would’ve been more fun maybe?

Brian was awesome ... he sent me links to a couple of stills:





we could see the two tails from the top of Anthony Peak on Monday night during the new moon, clearly visible in Brian's still pic ...



hope to see everyone at a StonyBARF, soon!

Dammit, missed my chance to ride with Schnitty!! Well there's always next year.

Funny how life works that the week immediately after Weaverville my Ducati was fixed (the mechanic messed up the first time), and the saddle bags I ordered months ago finally arrived.

Brian's pictures are just amazing, also very educational
