  • Ride Report: Sierras feather river loop

    Through much sleuthing I found a fellow Kawasaki H2 Rider locally here in the Reno Tahoe area and we decided to take a 300 mile Loop yesterday from North Tahoe Truckee area down to Oroville via Highway 70 and the Feather River. Back up hwy 160 by Bullards Bar dam. Stunning views great riding with over 500hp combined I can report there is nothing like riding an H2. We did almost get performance Awards but I think the twisty nature of the road and the highway patrol SUV that passed us the opposite direction didn't feel capable of turning around and trying to catch us :). https://maps.app.goo.gl/TrhAMSxrE5h9QmSL7

          Sounds like a great time James! It was on that very loop in 1980 that I discovered the joy of sport-riding on a twisty road, on my first Kawasaki- a KZ650. Jeez that was a long time ago...

              Looks like a good ride
              I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

                Looks fantastic!

                That bit from Quincy up to Chester, then up to Lassen is one of my favorite places

                    Good thing you got this loop in. The Dixie fire has forever changed some of that landscape.
