    [QUOTE=SXV 550;148197]Up there a couple weeks ago, and was it's typical dirty self up past Camp Nelson.....We turned around before Ponderosa......It is fine to ride at a normal pace but briskly the fast guys were slipping on front wheel, i only lost the rear end and slowed way down.........

    That road is definitely not my favorite........[/QUOTE]

    ......Ha!! Carl.

    190 was nice and clean almost to Camp Nelson. It was actually cleaner than 155, which had little bit of springtime schmutz here and there.

    Another thing about riding around there, is a big sweeper on Old Stage road just before the Tea Pot Dome cross road. It's not often one can find nice, big, and relatively safe 100+ mph curves out here in the real world.

    It was nice meeting up with you guys! What a day it was for me! On yokhole valley Rd, My license plate bracket went to pieces. As i was tying it back on, I burnt my hand really good on my exhaust. On the way back down 190. I had the pleasure of getting a wasp in my leathers and was stung 12 times down the right side of my chest. Thats when I decided to split off and head for home. once on the road from Springville, close to the forestry buildings. I picked up a nail in my rear that left Ray and I walking for a bit until some one stopped and gave us a ride to cell coverage. What a bad day of riding with some great people!!!! I hope to be able to do it again soon!

    Hey, man....thanks for covering up all the bad luck Mojo yesterday. As a matter of fact, on 155, just after a pit stop, a Honet / Yellow Jacket flew into my helmet and got caught between my right temple and the helmet pad. I could feel it crawling towrds my eye, which I had to close and furiously pull over......And no sting!! Ha Ha !! NO sting.

    Bummer sorry about the bad luck, guess you should have went up 245 with Jeff and I eh? Something told me your 155 ride was gonna end up being a long one. I was home by 1:30 you should have called me, I would have hooked up the trailer to pick up you and your bike.

    That was my second choice lol Luckily, my pop's answered his phone on the first ring. He brought out my truck. We loaded it up and headed home.

    Funny, I had the same feeling!

    The 245 was beau-ti-ful, and the cream cheese filled french toast was superb! And I got home in plenty o' time to water my concrete... no cracks so far, & I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!
    Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity.

    *Sorry for bumping up this very old thread*

    New to riding (sport bike only about 8 months) and I have been looking through these threads discovering some good riding roads. BTW I live in Visalia.....

    Anyway yesterday I took Yokohl DR south off the 198 towards Springville and I can confirm it is not sport bike friendly haha! I spent most of the ride in 1st and 2nd gear and although it was nice and scenic, it was a rough ride. Once I got down to the 190 it was a nice ride. I had never been down that way (driving or riding) and it was definitely a road I have to ride more often!

    The Yokohl valley road is all beat to snot now too. It seems that the county road crews all signed up for the "High Speed Rail" jobs...

    There are OLD twisty riders, and there are FAST twisty riders, but there are no OLD FAST twisty riders! However, keep on keeping on.
