Graham from World Motorcycle Tours has another great motorbike tour by starting in Los Angeles heading out over the San Fransisco travelling around the bay and heading out through the rich California farmlands.

Our first stop at Morro Bay to spend our first night. 

Travelling up the pacific coast highway for that  stunning scenery. The sight of timid wildlife, in the throes of new birth, brings a feeling of renewal to even the most jaded of us. Leaving Yosemite we travel through the great forested parks of Sequoia and Kings Canyon, the home General Sherman Tree, the world’s biggest living thing. Winding our way out of the park we stop overnight in the Kern Valley near Lake Isabella, Furnace Creek “Death Valley”, Las Vegas.
