Just recently got back from touring Northern California. While we were in Yosemite our planned exit from the park heading to Bridgeport where we had reservations for the night was closed due to the fires. So our detour added an extra 100 miles to that days ride and it was already approx 4:30 in the afternoon.Our route took us thru the Sonora Pass at over 9700 feet. By the time we reached the 26% grade it was 8:30 PM cold, pitch dark, smoke covered and no artificial light. The only illumination we had was from our bikes. The guy leading was very careful leading us thru and later said he was worried about deer and such,hell I was worried about running into Sasquatch.I am from North Carolina and always thought the Dragon was a ride,I am here to tell you Sonara at night makes the Dragon look like a worm. It is something I am glad i did and all 22 bikes made it thru. It was a hell of a ride,but at night I don't think i want to have to do that again.
