I was recently assigned a new work project that required a visit to San Francisco to work with a client for a few days in October, and so of course I got to thinking if I could incorporate some motorbike time whilst out there. Prior visits to the Bay area, where I had the chance to rent a Harley Davidson Dyna 103, a Road King 107 and Triumph Bonneville T100 were all very memorable. However, I have always wanted to visit Yosemite National Park, being renowned for its natural beauty. At ~200 miles inland, I’ve just never had long enough to get there with time to appreciate it within a weekend bike rental.
Motorcycle Trip to Yosemite
For this upcoming trip, I’ve arranged my outgoing flight 3 days earlier (and actually saving the company money to boot!) to fit in a rough itinerary of:
- Day 1 – collect bike in San Fran and ride 200 miles to Yosemite
- Day 2 – explore Yosemite, Tioga Pass and ride up to Lake Tahoe
- Day 3 – back to San Fran via Sacramento to drop bike off
