Nice picture file. I joined the cluster a day or two later in Fortuna and rode with Wheatie and the gang for a couple days. Was great fun watching Mark practice plugging a tire until he got it right but then he got even when it was his fault that I tipped my bike over. :stickpoke: Good thing Karl was there to help me pick it up or I would probably still be there :D

Unfortunately due to the huge Rat Creek slide south of Big Sur, you won't have the opportunity to ride that section of 1 between Carmel and Cambria this year... it's going to take quite some time to repair that.

Yeah, I've been watching that :(

But as I am on an "Adventure Bike" what about CA 1 North to the Nacimiento-Ferguson Road up to Hunter-Liggett/Jolon, then King City and then up to Sycamore Flat and then Carmel?

It is as of now because of slides, mud, etc. in the road but I imagine by September, if not sooner, that should be remedied. ;)

Amazing archive of images. Some I never saw and others bring back fond memories. I had no idea they still existed in original form with the story-line. I still have all the images taken on the great Wheaton tour, and will see if I can make something out of it. for this thread. I enjoyed that trip immensely and still fall back on that as one of the great tours with the FJR group. It was also my hall of shame when I went out for dinner in Bodega Bay and stood up my forever friend Tyler for dinner at the hotel. I'll never regret a decision more. Amazing days in CA before I became TominPA.

It's been a long time since I heard from Karl. I hope there is not a reason for that, but I'll ask anyway, what became of Karl?

Tom, thank you for your post. Your giving Karl and me a tour on our last day in Kali was a great gift. I really don't know where Karl is these days, I haven't seen him in forever. Maybe someone in AZ knows where he is...

I'm hoping/planning to be in Tucson in late March to ride/start my Baja? trip.
Is there any way to find out how to get in touch with the Airboss?
I owe him a beer!
