Need some wind therapy?

With 45+ years of riding experience, the team has developed a library of our favorite rides in Texas and points beyond. We call them our Twisted Rides. We thought it might be a good idea to share that experience and encourage you to do the same!

We partnered with MyRoute-app, a leading provider of route planning tools, to create and share the routes. Using the map below, Users are able to view and download the routes without registering with MyRoute-app. If you would like the ability to open/edit/save the routes, the User will be prompted to register with MyRoute-app and offered two subscription levels - Basic (free) and Gold (fee dependent on subscription term and payment method). Being an avid ride planner, I prefer the Gold level for the additional features and I also believe in supporting independent software developers who invest their time and talents to create useful applications for the motorcycle industry. As a Twisted Rides referral, you receive an extended evaluation period and special pricing if you choose the Gold level - so give it a shot!

Go West! Tour - Headed to the Sierra Nevada Mountains

Day 15
Chiloquin, OR to Truckee, CA - 330 miles

Here is the routing for the day (Waypoints 7-11)

We took the backroads into the Lake Tahoe area, Truckee, specifically. With a few exceptions early on, the roads were in great shape.

We took CA-36 west out of Susanville, then CA-147 south which hugs the east coast of Lake Almanore. Absolutely beautiful. If you look carefully at the middle picture of the lake, you can see the south face of Mount Shasta...+100 miles away.

We then connected to CA-89 which snakes through the Tahoe National Forest, finally connecting to CA-70 into Truckee. What a great warm-up to Lake Tahoe!

Tomorrow, the old Gold Rush towns along CA-49.
