If you’ve got a little time to spare, this is a 20 minute “movie” I made from all the photos and videos that we shot during our 7 day vacation/trip/adventure this past June. We started in Harbor City (near Los Angeles California) and documented our ride as we rode our new Ural motorcycle/sidecar thru Oxnard, Lompoc, Cambria, Big Sur, Monterey, and Turlock on our way bringing our new rig home to Folsom.
Turn up the volume and grab some popcorn…..
The “movie” is a 7 day summary of the ride in 20 minutes. For more details about each day of our ride along the coast, check out our notes below in the various posts about each day.
Thanks for taking the time to check out our site – hope you enjoyed it.
Any and all feedback is appreciated.
Have fun and ride safe!
Day 7 – Heading back home
Today was our last day on this adventure; we were going for the final haul across the central California valley to head back to our home in Folsom near Sacramento.
We got up early, packed up the Ural and hit the road. Left Monterey and headed to Hollister where I gassed up the motorcycle and then headed for the hills to ride over to California’s central valley – which was very warm – 100+ degrees –yoinks! It was a lot warmer here then it had been for the entire ride up the coast where temps averaged 65-70 degrees.
Ronda and the Ural
After riding over the hills, we headed to Turlock for a lunch stop at Dustbowl brewery in their downtown area. I’ve driven past this town over a hundred times and this is the very first time I ever stopped to see what was here. Turlock actually has a decent downtown area and the brewery was fantastic! Great service, great beers and great food, we enjoyed our stop here.
After lunch we rode up the back roads along the farms and ranches. In one area there was a very large wetland bird sanctuary. Didn’t see very many birds but it was a wide-open stretch that ran for miles with no stops, no buildings, no nothing.
Near Pardee Resevoir
From the central valley we rode towards the eastern hills along Highway 49 and several other back roads until we finally arrived in Folsom. We rolled up into our driveway, parked the Ural in the garage and spent the rest of the evening unpacking and checking out all the photos and videos from our adventure.
This was a great first road trip on our new Ural – we’re already looking forward to the next one, which is going to be to our local wine country.
