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 - Viva Las Vegas

Day 17
Truckee, CA to Henderson, NV - 502 miles

SPOILER ALERT: There are no pics of Mount Shasta in this post.

Routing for the day (Waypoints 11-15)...

We got a late start out of Truckee and opted to view Lake Tahoe along the western shore. MISTAKE! Sett’s Rule #1 took immediate effect and we waded through weekend traffic along the shore line. That said, we did get some great views, especially around Emerald Bay.

We continued on CA-89 until we connected with US-50. Though it got a lot dryer (and hotter) on the west side of the Sierras.

From there, we worked our way to CA-120 and US-395. CA-120 and CA-267 were quite interesting in that they had a lot of dips in the road, creating a roller coaster effect.

We stopped in Bridgeport for food and fuel...setting a new high for the latter. 

Also a stern warning in the bathroom of the restaurant. I violated the policy with enthusiasm and no known consequences.

The rest of the road to Henderson was rather flat and uninspiring. Long day on the road.

It was 103 degrees when we arrived in 9pm. But it’s a dry heat and Happy Hour ensued.

Tomorrow, Hoover Dam and Alpine, AZ.
