    So how hot was it?


    The shade was thanks to it being 7:30 am on the first of May, and having a mile-high mountain right behind where I am stood.


    We had pleasant temperatures during our visit to Death Valley; highs (according to my VFR) were ~34℃ / 93℉, and 19/66° around 7:30 am.


    Atop 1660m/5500' Dante's View the morning before it was barely 7/45°.


    ps. I wrote about my trip here: https://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/78012-california-tour-2014/

  2. The pavement was in great shape on my last run through in 2015.


    Well, not a lot nearby but if you are in the neighbourhood there is plenty to see:
       * Yellowstone and Grand Teton NPs are to the north

       * Colorado NM and Arches NP are to the south

       * Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Zion NPs are a little further afield, to the southwest

       * Tons of great scenic secondary highways in the area - check your maps and travel guides


  3. Hey, Brian, how come you can always come up with a photo I wish I'd taken?


    The colour combo isn't one I'd have considered but it is really growing on me. Is that the satin black or gloss? Nice set of Staintune complimenting that Öhlins quite nicely. Kinda neat that it is a Japanese bike with Aussie and Euro parts being enjoyed by an American.


    Btw, that sure looks like the west end of Nacimiento-Fergusson. Always seems to be thick overcast when I'm in that neighbourhood :mellow:
