Your motorcycle tour in California will cover a tremendous variety of riding conditions including twisty mountain roads, the possibility of gravel, sand or debris on the pavement, and even the possibility of rain, fog or snow while on your tour. Elevations may range from sea level to nearly 10,000 feet (3000 m). Riding a motorcycle exposes you to temperatures extremes that vary widely, typically related to the elevation or region we are in. This is not a holiday for novice riders or a place to learn to ride a motorcycle. It's important that you, the tour participant(s) are in reasonable physical health and accustomed to spending three days, one week or even more aboard a motorcycle.
