MOs Ultimate Sport-Touring Adventure Update Day 4

It’s day 4 of MO’s Ultimate Sport-Touring Adventure, and now the gang is making their way back south on their journey home. From the Prairie Creek Redwood Park, the route went slightly inland through the redwoods, with a mandatory ride through the famous drive-through tree park, then largely backtracking south the way they came. Originally, the plan was to head further northeast towards Happy Camp, but due to fires en route the plan had to be revised. Along the way, our testers explored local fireroads and took the bikes off the beaten path (spoiler alert: at least one of the bikes ended up horizontal at one point).

Here’s where the gang is now: http://www.findmespot.com/mylocation/?id=QO2r4/39.94724N/123.94632W
