A buddy of mine and I rode 1400 miles from San Francisco through Yellowstone, Death Valley, Lone Point, Las Vegas, San Bernardino, Santa Margarita, Monterey, and Highway 1. The idea for the trip started with plans to reconnect with friends in Vegas to celebrate a big moment in another close friends life, and the road trip added a path to that. We rode through snow capped mountains, rolling hills, 110 degree blazing desert heat, gusting winds, and ocean side highways. The dangerous moments in the ride ( barley making it through a sand storm! ) just added to the trip and reminded me of how dynamic life can be, and how you get to those moments in life are as important as the destination.
