I'll be on my way to 10 miles south of Mariposa to live. Here is 1 of the arguments that could be made for the move :)

The Little Dragon

"Beautiful scenery of the Sierras. Mountain overlooks, and the almost never ending sight of twisted asphalt ahead. Any notice of the scenery is secondary to keeping rubber to pavement, as the twisties keep you more than busy throughout the ride. Recommend pulling off at the numerous overlook sites to take in the views. Starts you off full bore in quaint Coulterville, where you ride Highway 49's twisties high into the Sierras and end in the historic town of Mariposa, California. Although the trip is only 26 miles long, it is not for the faint of heart...it includes beautiful views, fueling stations, and 1st gear twisties the entire ride. And of course use caution as the road is nestled in the Sierras, and reaches elevations of 6,000 feet."

Oh man, that's beautiful country! Congratulations. My wife and I were all over that area in April, spending a week at my friend's house in West Point.

As we did sightseeing trips slogging around that region in our Honda wagon, my wife was looking at me saying "Bet you had your motorcycle up here, huh?"

That was obvious.

Ill be sad to lose a riding buddy but glad to see you go to a better environment. Hopefully I can cut out some time again this year and go riding up there with you. Definitely some wonderful roads and great scenery. Congratulations!
