If y'all ever get the chance to ride in the Sacramento Mountains, take it. Some really nice roads and varying terrain in the area. Saw many Harleys riding and parked at the casinos.
So I pull into the "Inn of the Mountain Gods" to reconnoiter and decide where I want to ride today.
All of a sudden I look up and see a Moto Guzzi California Custom stopped and the guy is checking out my Carbon. It is rare to see two Moto Guzzis in one location and I didn't even get a photo! I walk over and he introduces himself and he has an accent so I ask him where he is from. Italy! He is here working at the resort and bought the bike in El Paso. We didn't get to talk long or take photos because he had family visiting and needed to get to them. Before he left me he told me that I had to ride up the road to Ski Apache. That road wasn't even on my route plan but I thought I had better check it out.
Sure glad I did!
Got in almost 90 miles of great mountain riding. The V7 is every bit as fun to ride as my FZ-07 was. I am impressed with this Moto Guzzi!
Here is the route with the addition of the road to Ski Apache.
A close up of the road to Ski Apache. Nice winding road up the mountain.
Some shots of the bike and the background along the way up the mountain.
Yes, that is some rain off in the distance.
Temps dropped 10 degrees at 10,000 feet compared to 6000 feet at the Inn.
