California Highway 245 Run Thru the Curves

Author: Mark Page Posted: 2021-09-08

This is my run down highway 245 in central California. This is a super fun road with lots of twists and turns. My small BME G310 GS handled the ride just fine and was a pleasure to ride.

Abbott Creek Hill Climb

Author: Mark Page Posted: 2021-08-25

After a difficult previous day unsuccessfully attempting to ride the Forest Route 13S58 in the Kings Canyon National Park, I made a second attempt. Although not a perfect ride, I did drop my bike two times, I was able to make it up a very steep and challenging section near Abbott Creek along the route. My BMW G310 GS in the stock configuration made it with a lot of coaxing. My bike and myself were a little bruised, but relieved and filled with a sense of accomplishment on our hard work and our achievement.

Sampson Flat Road to Mill Flat Campground on Kings River California

I noticed on Google Maps that there were a few campgrounds nearby in the valley below. My goal was to try and reach the closet Mill Flat Campground. The host of the campground also stated that there was a river appropriately titled Kings River in Kings Canyon that was worth visiting. I decided to try my luck at riding down into the valley to better my off road skills and to kill some time. The BMW G310 GS is a solid bike for this type of terrain.

My intent for the day was to visit Grant's Cove in the Sequoia National Forest. However the entry fee was a bit too expensive for me so I went to explore the nearby Sequoia Lake. Although I was unsuccessful it was a pleasant ride.
