Day 10: Jan 6, 2003
Minden to San Francisco (237mi)

Today I rode over the Sierra Nevada mountains on Route 88 and then continued west to my home in San Francisco. Going over the mountains was freezing! The elevation was over 8500ft in places, and my motorcycle was definately feeling it. I was so cold and anxious to get home that I didn't take any pictures of the trip. Here are some pictures of my bike, after 2742 miles, including over 100 miles of unpaved roads:

Home - by garage

Home - dirty chain, wheel, and tire

Home - dirty engine

Home - missing blinker (shaken off on unpaved road)

Home - license plate
