Yosemite Dual Sport Ride

My neighbor Dale and I, both having a deep love for motorcycling but sometimes lacking in incentive, agreed to try and turn around our off-roading hiatus by signing up for a beginner-level dual sport ride through one of the most beautiful places on earth, Yosemite Valley. We chose Family Off-Road Adventures Yosemite Adventure Tour 2017.

So we loaded up our noble steeds and set out for our wonderful adventure together. We stayed in Buck Meadows with 150 other riders, one of which was riding a fully loaded Harley Davidsen towing a trailer! As you can see, this was a fun ride, not a race. The next morning, we all gathered for the Event Staff kickoff speech, checked our GPS units for accuracy, and headed on down the road

We were encouraged to explore on our way to the lunch spot in Coulterville, so we surely did. Within 30 minutes, Dale and I found a friend named Stuart who was riding a KTM 1190. He had lost his posse, and so we let him join with us. He was quite a skilled rider as he kept up with us no problem. We took him onto some quite challenging terrain that tested our ability to lift the KTM beast over a downed tree amidst a landslide blocking our progress.
