I will be sharing my first experience doing a motorcycle rally in writing in the next entry, as for now I wanted to share some of the photos I took during the rides (some taken literally during riding!).
In the first day, we met with all the rally participants in Cordelia, CA, then departed for the ride to Quincy in our own little group. A planned route saw us mostly riding the levee of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, before hopping onto Highway 70 that would take us straight into Quincy, CA.

A ferry ride on our motorcycles.
Another ferry ride! This is turning into a ferry rally!
My kind of “guard-rails”!

The home-stretch to Quincy…
…but not before having some fun!
In the second day, we simply chose to do a loop of roads from Quincy and back, making a lunch stop in the tiny but quaint town of Downieville, CA. It was during this loop that I rode one of the best stretches of tarmac I have ever ridden in my life to date. But of course, I didn’t bother to take any photos of it, as I couldn’t be bothered to stop enjoying the road!
Starting off the day right; watching Superpole of World Superbike during the Sepang round.
Picking up the pace.
The high altitude made for some limiting power output, but the little-hawk-that-can never faltered.
It was hard to keep my eyes on the road with the scenery!
I did not have any photos from the third day, as I chose to simply slab it home on the freeways, to make it back to my family as soon as possible, having missed them for the weekend.
Select more photos to come with my actual write-up of the rally, coming up next!
