Come with me on another 11,000-mile journey on my Hayabusa.
As our 2022 motorcycle tour season kicks off, and we head for Death Valley for the first tour of the season.
Every tour we've offered this year in 2022 is sold out, but we go to a waitlist once a ride is sold out, but it's not unusual for a rider to cancel due to unforeseen circumstance. Things have a tendency to always balance out.

Motorcycle tours I design generally have a shelf life of 2-3 years, and then, I have to design something new. Some tours are so good, so perfect, and so well-loved by the riders, we do them every year over and over. Other times, we drop tours from the line-up, and they return a year or two later. The Classic NorCal if a perfect example of this. We previously dropped this tour, and it's back this year, as it's the perfect motorcycle ride through the Northern California Motorcycle Paradise.
I have also started planning for my 20th Anniversary year of Pashnit Motorcycle Tours in 2023. 20 years in business. 20 years of travel on a Hayabusa.
The Hayabusa is ready to ride, yearly maintenance complete. New tires & oil seem to be about all I ever do to this bike. I did the chain & sprockets last year and threw in a new battery. All good. Tires every three to four months. Time to hit some local roads in the Sierra Foothills and blow the cobwebs out. It's become a yearly tradition to take the bike out a few days before the first ride of the season and go ride some roads a few miles from home base.
Pre-Ride complete! It's time to head for Death Valley and start our tour season.
