Trailered to Reno, Riding the Pacific Coast Highway

Thought a ride report on using a trailer might help those wondering about it.

Save the trailers are for boats, and if mines on a trailer call the cops cause its been stolen comments I have heard them all.

If you have medical issues, or live out west where the first 1200 miles will be the same as you have rode for a decade, a trailer can help you explore more territory and give you more days exploring it.

The numbered responses are for me to fill in the days as they happen

Loaded up the bike and leaving early for Reno. We have rode the Utah dessert a lot over the years but it steals 2 days in both directions







Interestingly the Ol' Lady wants to stop at the flats







She now would like to come to speed week. I have not been to it since i helped Bonner set the turbo charged gasoline record. This could be good

Unloaded the bike and began the pretrip inspection






Front tire was low. Pretty normal since i replaced the front tire to get rid of the wobble. No one ever puts the FOBO TPMS back on correctly. Pulled it and did it right.





The inverter in the trailer is 2500 watts continuous so it handles the compressor easy






Off we went. Rode 395 up to susanville. Then took 139 over to Klamath OR great road.

Klamath to medford OR we took 140 to OR 66 ... this is a road where you have a boner the entire ride! Great road!

Medford OR Best Western turned out to be great

Pool and hot tub. Enough other riders showed up it was a decent Apries ride unwind.



The jail hot tub








Riding the red woods today

Foggy on the coast from Crescent City down.

Big trees were a hit with the Ol' Lady

Today we ride down the 101 to Fort Bragg, CA.

Pretripping the machine



Wish it would let me change the crotch rocket pic on the display

Everything is good as soon as the tires warm up he will be at 41 PSI.

Riding avenue of the giants and a bunch of short stop and looks.
