Lands end in the West

on 2017-07-03 in United States of America
After crossing the border back into the USA we decided to take a route South West. Through the Rocky mountains and along Diablo lake towards Washington state. We skipped Seattle by taking a route over the Islands Fidalgo and Whidbey. Taking a short ferry across helped us avoid the traffic of Seattle and gave us some nice views of the pacific ocean. We decided to set up camp in the Olympic National Park. We had been told that the vegetation in this area is very unique. Apparently this is the only cold Rain forest in the world. The ground is full of ferns, some large trees tower over them and overall everything is very green and overgrown.
The climate of the pacific hit us hard in this region, as soon as the sun had set the temperatures seemed to begin a free fall. Overall we were glad that we carry low temperature sleeping bags.

The next morning we were surprised to find ourselves on a beautiful road, even though it was occasionally quite bumpy we enjoyed ourselves very much letting our throttle hands loose every once in a while. After a while we arrived at our destination for the day: Cape Flattery, the most western point of the United States. To get to the shore we had to hike for about half an hour but the view at the end was more than worth it. The view was spectacular and we were surprised that we were pretty much all by ourselves. We relaxed for a while and spent most of our time simply enjoying the view. Just before sunset we decided to walk back to our bikes so that we would not have to hike up in the dark.

Our maps only showed one road out towards Cape Flattery and supposedly we would have to take said same road to get back. But since taking the same road twice is something we usually try to avoid we decided to try another way once again. We were able to find a tiny gray road on our navigators and quickly we had settled that this would be a road worth trying out. As usual when we go on endeavors like this we have more issues at hand. Of course the sun was already starting to set so we knew there was about an hour of daylight left. But do we care? Of course not! The tarmac gave way to dirt pretty soon, shortly thereafter we turned into a single track path followed by a gate which we managed to squeeze by. After crossing a couple of mud holes and going over or by some fallen trees the darkness started creeping in. Time to turn around you ask? But of course not! So we kept on going through deep woods just to end up in front of a dozen of fallen trees. We looked further but even if we would have managed to hoist our bikes across those fallen trees we would have been faced by a rock slide just a couple of meters further. First 15 meters straight down and then shortly thereafter straight back up... Being fully aware of our past ventures through roades like this we decided to turn around this time. But before going all the way back we simply decided to set up camp right where we were.

In the morning we took the last kilometers to get back out to the main road and took the same road back we had taken the day before. We can not win every time ;)
We headed further south along the shore of the west coast with sights that we will never forget. The road lead along the shores and the cold wind crept more and more into our jackets. We still enjoyed every second of it! The beaches had no beginning and no end to them. And no matter where we looked there was no one to be found. Something beach tourists would dream about, if it were not for the temperatures. Instead of wanting to jump into the water ones wish was more likely to be for a third jacket.
Thanks to a tip from our friendly and toothless hotelier we headed towards a kite show near our location. Sadly we were in for quite the disappointment, because we had expected kite surfers and as it turned out it was just people flying some kites. It was okay.

Later that evening we found ourselves on the lookout for another campground. The first that we headed to told us that they were full for the day but showed us a way to another one called "Sandbeach Campground". We wanted to spend some time and try to see some whales along the shore so we thought this would be a good spot to do that. We turned into the campground and boy were we in for a treat...

Ride the dunes!

on 2017-07-09 in United States of America
We arrived at the Sandbeach Campground in the beginning of the evening. It was easy to hear the roaring sounds of motors from the distance. Since we were right at the beach, Denis thought immediately of motocross bikes and quads on the sand of the beach. But he believed it to be good to be true. Once we turned into the campground we knew immediately that we had found a huge man’s playground. We drove through the campground and found on each and every slot sandrails, four wheelers and UTVs. Soon we got talking to some campers that had all the toys a man could possibly dream of.

They explained to us that all we had to do to ride the sand and dunes was to get a couple of flags on our bikes and we were good to go. Luckily they had a couple of flags left over and were nice enough to give them to us. The only issue was that the entire campground was booked solid. But Denis already knew that no matter what we would be staying here. This is why he rode another round through the campground and was immediately picked up by a very friendly family that must have seen his desperate face underneath his helmet. They offered that we could simply set up our tents behind their camper and since the space was about as large as a football field we accepted gladly.

After we threw down our tents, Denis immediately took his luggage racks off and rode back to the aforementioned group. After getting his tires to the right amount of psi he quickly raced to the dunes. Denis was so excited that he really did not want to go back anymore. The only thing that kept him from spending the night on the dunes was his fuel gauge that lid up after a while. But it was a full success for the first day and he knew he would be back! We set a time with the others to make sure we all would ride the next day together. That evening we enjoyed a lovely barbecue with our hosts and their 5 kids. We had great burgers and shared many great stories for hours.

Our alarm rang at 9 o’clock in the morning and we all could not wait to get up and out to the dunes. After a quick and small breakfast we joined up with the others, begged for some gas and rode to the beach together. It was hard to believe what we saw before us when we arrived. Four wheelers, Sandrails, Motocross bikes raced across the sand with thundering noise. The clouds hung atop the nearby mountains and gave the entire image something surreal. It was once again surprising how well our bikes performed. The most important part was once again not to loose any momentum and if we were to park to always park downhill. We also got to try driving a four wheeler and riding with one of the sand rails. Both were a lot of fun but we all agreed that we preferred two wheels over four. We played around until our fuel tanks were as close to empty as we dared. We even filled up again a couple of liters just to have a little more time. Full of adrenalin we returned back to the road and headed further south. But the tarmac should only last for a short while.

Our friends gave us the tip that we could find even bigger dunes near Florence which was just 170 km south of our location. Obviously we had to check these out as well. That evening we managed to find a motel that was just a few miles away from the next dunes. Denis, Fabi and Steffi decided to give the dunes another try right away. With the sun setting and a bit of rain starting to set in they reached the sand. But thanks to very loose sand and a lot of tracks it turned out to be a lot more challenging than they had hoped for. We returned at the motel exhausted but determined to give it another shot the next day. Luckily we managed to find two awesome spots the next day and especially the last one had a steep incline right at the start. At first we were uncertain if we would be able to make it but as luck would have it all we need was enough speed. So we all cranked up our throttles and climbed up that huge sand dune. What we found beyond that first incline left us in awe. A vast untouched sand landscape without any tracks whatsoever. We knew right away this had to change! We rode on top for quite a while, everyone trying to stay out of the tracks that we had made before. After a while and with the sun setting we had to give in and return back home. But not before Fabi took Steffi on the back of his bike and showed her some of the fun!

While the sun was setting we arrived at our motel completely exhausted from the day. What an extremely fun and exciting two days! We will see what in a couple of months South America will hold in store for us.

Where's the bridge?

on 2017-07-11 in United States of America
After Florence Basti decided to split up with Denis, Steffi and Fabi because he wanted to see Crater Lake. For Basti anything with water is always worth seeing. He did enjoy his solo trip very much especially because he met 3 hikers in the evening: Miloslav, Pavel and Martin. These three walked the Pacific Crest Trail and asked Basti for the closest restaurant. They quickly decided to meet up to have dinner together. Luckily they could hitchhike with Scott to the restaurant and he bought us all a round of beers. Later he even invited us to stay at his beautiful house in the woods for the night. That's why we all ended up enjoying ourselves with a couple of beers in Scott's hot top telling our stories. We all left very early in the morning and Basti had still a lot of curvy miles ahead of him till he met up again with the others just before the Redwoods.

Right after we left the highway and turned into the forest we immediately saw the oversized trees. At first one has to look a bit closer to realize it or even better if someone rides ahead of you. That way you have a better point of reference to the size. But once you stand next to one of those trees it is stunning how small we are compared to them. The oldest trees were over 2300 years old and the average age is around 500 to 700 years. The diameter and height is hard to grasp even when standing right next to them. What is even more incredible that most of these trees have survived various of wildfires and one can see them in fallen over trees because of darker treelines in the trunks. What is even more interesting the Redwoods actually need those wildfires to get their seed out of the fir cone and because they give them enough space and nutrients to continue their growth. But that's enough knowledge on trees for now.

We continued further south and arrived in the late afternoon in San Francisco. On our way it was once again amazing how quickly the temperature changes between the coast and just 20 km into the backcountry. Occasionally the coast was covered by thick layers of fog where one could only see 50 yards ahead. Only the warm tarmac stopped the fog from staying on the street so we road in somewhat like a fog tunnel. Sadly this also did not change when we reached the Golden Gate Bridge and therefore our first impression of the infamous bridge was tainted by near to zero visibility. As you can see by the picture of the viewpoint, the bridge was completely obstructed by fog when we took our first look upon it.

Evan, a friend of Basti whom we had met in Florida, had invited us to stay with him during our time in San Francisco. We accepted gladly and we were already looking forward to see him later that night.
We stayed the next couple of nights in San Francisco with Evan and Pierre, another friend of Basti. They showed us a couple of bars and places in San Francisco. They also took us to a Baseball game! And yes it is just like everyone says rather slow and long but on the upside one can enjoy a couple of beers in the company of friends. Following the game we went out to another bar where we discovered a new game called “Cornhole” for us. Sadly we played against the local “Cornhole” champions and so we did not manage after 5 hours of playing to win a single game...


The following day we once again tried our luck at the Golden Gate Bridge. This time we managed not only to get an incredible picture with us and the bikes, but we also had the luck of seeing a couple of whales swim by. We just watched them for a while with the Bridge in the background. What a gorgeous view and a most fitting goodbye to the great time we had in San Francisco.

The valley of waterfalls

on 2017-07-18 in United States of America
Basti split up from the rest to see more of the National Parks and the West coast.
Since I had been here with a rented Mustang convertible before I had different expectations what I wanted to see in California.
First up was Big Sur. It is a town on the most beautiful coastal road, the Highway 1. And I always planned to ride it with a motorcycle even though I knew that large parts were blocked this time because of rock slides. When I reached the coast the sun was already setting and painted a beautiful picture of the scenery.
It was already quite dark when I reached the first campground and started asking for availability. The price of the first campsite was ridiculous which is why I decided to head to a State Campground.
This one was fully booked of course but after riding a round through the park I was lucky enough to find a friendly Vietnamese family that agreed to share their space. Thai was here with both his kids and his mother. At dinner I had my first "lonely" night with very interesting discussion about the religions of the world.

The next day I decided to head to the Yosemite National Park. I had breakfast in a extraordinary small French coffee shop. The owner was just as excited about our tour as I was was of his bread. I did not reach Yosemite this day though because the West entrance had been closed due to large wildfires. On my detour to the South entrance I stopped at an Campground by a nearby barrier lake. My first campground with showers!
In the evening I ate at an Mexican restaurant nearby where I would also be having breakfast the next day.
A little later than usual but well-fed I headed to the Yosemite National Park. 5 years ago I was deeply impressed by this National Park and I was hoping to find a campspot on one of the many campsites. Through sheer luck and probably thanks to the fire I got one of the few canceled sites for three nights. After setting up camp I immediately headed to Glacier Point. Once I got up I sadly realized that the entire valley was covered by thick layers of smoke. The next day I hiked up the Vernal Falls and the Nevada Falls to the Little Yosemite Valley. Fortunately the smoke cleared and gave way to the view that I remembered from years ago: breathtaking!

This time I was able to cross the Yosemite Park from West to East which I was unable to achieve the last time due to snow. Since I took my time it turned out to be already late in the evening when I started thinking about places to camp. On my navigator I found a dead-end road leading up a nearby mountain with a campground at the end. Without even knowing I headed into another National Park: Devils Postpile with the nearby Rainbow Falls. Thanks to a nice elderly couple I had a campground, because they always picked two to make sure they could choose their neighbors.

New hiking friends

on 2017-07-24 in United States of America
Two days later I headed through the Sequoia National Forest on the same road where we had been stuck 5 months before. In the summer time it turned out to be a perfect mountain pass. In the following Sequoia National Park I obviously drove to the General Sherman Tree. The largest living organism on this planet. I found these trees to be even more beautiful than those in the Redwoods. Despite them being smaller than those in the Redwoods. On the parking lot I met Milan, who has ridden his ČZ 150c on many larger tours. But who also has to have an entirely different approach to his journeys. Here is a link to his blog: http://www.prustomersky.cz. Amazing stories and I wish him best of luck on his future journeys.
Later I headed to Kings Canyon and all the the way to the end, leaving the National Park at nightfall. Fortunately I managed to find a good campsite quickly.

After the colder temperatures in the mountains I now headed towards the Mojave desert. At over 105° Fahrenheit I closed all my cloths completely to make sure the hot air does not come in direct contact with my skin.
Somewhere near the historical route 66 I decided to set up camp for the night. My mattress isolated against the heat, but because of over 88°F sleep was hard to get. Early in the morning and because I was afraid of the heat during noon I packed up my tent and crossed the desert. As it turned out it was a little colder in the Mojave Reserve than on the heated up highways before. Just before Vegas I passed 2 cyclists at around 110°F!! After reminding myself about conversations I had to different cyclists before I decided to buy some cold water at the next stop and turn around to bring them some. Both of them were very thankful and we had a pleasant conversation afterwards. Both of them have taken various bike trips during their vacations and of course they also have a Website: http://www.backonracks.com/.

In Vegas I relaxed a couple of days at Debbys just before heading once more into the Zion National Park. I did not want to miss the chance to see Angels Landing and the Narrows! Debby found for me and four others an incredibly luxurious "hut" on the border to Zion. In this unique environment and paired with two exciting and cheerful hikes we all became good friends in just two days, that I hope to meet again one day!
Just in time before departing I serviced my bike, put on a new chain and oil to be prepared for the adventures in Mexico...

The last miles

on 2017-07-25 in United States of America
After we had met up with the American distributor for Heidenau tires to arrange our next set of tires, we decided to split up with Basti who wanted to do more intensive National Park sightseeing over the next couple of days.

Denis, Steffi and Fabi decided to take a quicker approach and spend more time riding through the parks than hiking. On a beautiful stretch of road from the coast up towards Yosemite we enjoyed letting our bikes loose and cutting some corners. In our hotel some guests mentioned that some streets leading to Yosemite were closed due to wildfires. We believed that it probably won't be as bad as we were told. But when we arrived at the park entrance we experienced something we had never seen before. The smell of the smoke was not as bad as we would have thought but the view was stunning. The sun turned into a dark orange almost reddish color and it was difficult to see much further than the road. The surrounding valleys were covered in smoke so there was not much to see on our way into the park. Once into Yosemite valley we visited two of the major falls, but most of the view was still obscured by thick layers of smoke.

Next up was the Sequoia National Park. On the one hand we hoped for a nice winding road on the other we wanted to see some more of the large trees. General Sherman was worth visiting but we had even more fun on the road. Since most parts of the US were flat, except for the Appalachian Mountains, some parts in the north and along the West coast, we were extremely pleased with the roads that led through this region.
From Sequoia we headed through the Death Valley once more towards Nevada. And Death Valley really earned its name this time round. Since it had been rather cold along the West coast we were glad that the temperature rose slowly while we road further east. But when we turned into the Death Valley and headed through we reached a new temperature high for our journey. 115° Fahrenheit was the highest temperature our bord computer displayed… And we believed every digit of it. We only stopped once to take some pictures of a couple of sand dunes. Our riding gear that we had put down in the sun felt like an oven when we put them back on. Still we somewhat enjoyed the dry heat, the only thing we made sure was that we drank enough so that we would not get overheated.

We stayed once more for a couple of days in Vegas, where we celebrated Denis birthday and enjoyed some off time before going to Mexico. Steffi and Fabi visited once more Zion, the Grand Canyon and the famous Horseshoe Bend. This time with the hike up to Angels Landing and into the Narrows. Both of which are definitely worth trying out. On the way back from the Grand Canyon they did get into some rather scary thunderstorm but they managed in the end to come back save and sound.

We also prepared our bikes for the journey ahead and so we once again changed our oil and tires, cleaned our air filters. The Hondas changed their second rear chains and Fabi changed his spark plugs. On our way out we stopped once more at Sena Los Angeles and met back up with Alyssa for a short interview. You can check out the results here - Sena Interview
We had a great day! But we were also very excited for what laid ahead. Onwards towards Mexico, let the adventure begin once again!

Vielen Dank Michl,
nein gstritten wäre übertrieben. Wir haben nur feststellen müssen dass wir sehr unterschiedliche Auffassungen vom Ende der Tour hatten.
Daher konnten wir auch keinen Kompromiss mehr finden und die Trennung war letztlich die einzige Möglichkeit alle zufrieden zu stellen.
Wir freuen uns aber schon auf das baldige Wiedersehen!

Moin Männers!
Nachdem ich vor einiger Zeit alle Eure Video geschaut habe, hab ich jede freie Minute in den letzten Tagen genutzt um Euren Blog von vorne bis hinten zu lesen (inkl. der beiden Alt-Touren).
Was soll ich sagen, außer, dass mein Leben jetzt keinen Sinn mehr hat, weil ich nichts mehr zu lesen habe:

MEGA GEILE STORY!
Es hat mir so unfassbar viel Spaß gemacht Eure Geschichten zu lesen, danke dafür!

Solltet Ihr jemand in den Deutschen Norden kommen, bitte bescheid geben! Lade Euch gerne auf ein oder zwei Bier ein :D

Hi Robert,
vielen danke für deine Kritik! Haben wir bisher noch nicht gehabt. Dass wir ziemlich hinten dran sind ist absolut richtig, wir nehmen uns gerade eine kleine Auszeit um aufzuholen.
Allerdings kann ich deinen Punkt zu den Sponsoren und Spenden überhaupt nicht nachvollziehen. Wir sind überrascht und froh wie wenig wir die Sponsoren erwähnen müssen. Außer in der eher kleinen Rubrik Support kommt eigentlich nichts in der Richtung vor.
In den nächsten Wochen werden wir auf jeden Fall zügig aufschließen und du darfst viele neue Berichte und Videos erwarten :)

Hallo,
ich hab Euch in Osoyoos am Campingplatz getroffen und finde Eure Tour. Leider find ich Euren Internetauftritt nicht besonders aktuell.
Mit am meisten Raum nimmt der Verweis auf gesponsorte Produkte und der Aufruf zu Spenden ein
Schade.
Webseiten anderer Weltreisender sind da wesentlich interessanter und aktueller mit mehr persönlichen Eindrücken.
Da drückt man dann vielleicht auch mal eher auf den Spenden Button.

Trotzdem weiterhin viel Spaß und gutes Durchkommen bei Eurer Tour

Hey Phil,
das ist ja super von dir! Fabi hat bereits 2 mal seine Gabeln deswegen austauschen müssen. Zumindest das zweite mal geht jetzt schon mal sicher auf Garantie!
Das erste mal war auch eher ein Crash und somit wohl kein Garantie Fall.
Er fährt jetzt übrigens mit zusätzlichen Klemmen als Verstärkung!
Phil
2017-07-27 10:34:27
Wichtige Info für Fabi!
Rückruf von BMW für die GS, wegen Problemen mit den Standrohren
der Telelever. Im harten Einsatz können sich die oberen Stopfen lösen. Werkstätten pressen Hülsen zur Verstärkung auf. Am besten
bei einer BMW Werkstatt vorbei-
fahren und prüfen lassen.

Also Leute, dass geht ja wohl überhaupt nicht. Ich schaue jeden Tag ob es Neuigkeiten von euch gibt und ihr lasst nichts von euch hören oder sehen. Unglaublich!
Natürlich Quatsch! Ich verfolge seit geraumer Zeit euren Blog voller Ungeduld und sauge jeden eurer Beiträge auf. Ich finde eure Aktion super und drücke euch beide Daumen für eure weitere Reise.

Hey guys! Great to meet you in Death Valley! I took a couple photos, and a small video of you going through the slot canyon. If you're interested in getting those, let me know where it would be best to send it! Also, let me know if you're planning to head to San Diego, California. Happy Trails! Trixxie

Hallo Leute,
ich bin gerade zufällig auf Eure Seite gestoßen. Sehr schön und informativ gemacht. Den Tipp mit dem magnetischen 12V-Verbinder kannte ich noch nicht. Das realisiere ich vielleicht, wenn ich von meiner Reise zurück bin. Denn wir könnten uns demnächst begegnen, wenn ich ab Sonntag in Halifax bin und von dort aus Richtung Süden starte. Einen Blog habe ich mal aufgesetzt und da ist auch meine Position per Tracker sichtbar. Würd` mich freuen, wenn wir uns mal auf einem Campingplatz treffen.

Hey Basti, Hope you were able to replace the chair in Munich. Nice meeting you at SFO airport. Love your website; what a great trip you are on! You have crossed the Rubicon. No going back.
Via con Dios,

you'll love the mavic pro. got it for a bike trip myself and the active track funktions are perfect for following bikes even at higher speeds. looking forward to watch new videos from your trip.

cheers,
