2021 California visit trip with motorcycle riding


Kathi and Chris drove their Tacoma with two motorcycles in the back down to California to visit family and friends. On the way, we unloaded the bikes to ride around some of the places Matt and Chris rode a few months earlier. This was a great way to introduce Kathi to some beautiful riding, without the Grizwoldian trek of driving 600 miles down I-5 on motorcycles.
