Alice’s Restaurant, Cold, Rain and Snow

The ride started nice enough, a few dark clouds, big deal

What timing, here comes Sheriff Sarah

A few Adv Rider inmates at Alice’s



R-Dubb’s sweet new to him ride

Back on the bikes, a few miles from the restaurant we encounter SNOW







We made it to the Summit in one piece, caught our breaths and headed back down into the valley

We're told to expect rain tomorrow. Why don't you NoCal folks keep your brutal winter weather to yourselves?

Hey gummee, say hi to nanook when you see him.

I was late and there was settled snow on the road by the time I hit Skyline. Took me 45 minutes from San Mateo...so by the time I had pulled off my soggy wet glove and shook a few hands it was time to head back to the orofice

Rain, snow and bald knobbies rawks...woulda been more fun on the KR

Don't let Dick pick the date for the next get together

it was a nice riden day.
Waited for the train(Rad,pierce, gummeee!!!) in front of joe's bar in BC, caught w/ them and rode to ALice's...
Here it comes...

a few pics fro skyline outlook




Dick says, the left tity to Bubba, I mean right...


Tina(mrskbasa) got there well before the others...


Chase and Rob felt like they were back at home w/ the snow....



The snow scared the MOA pres pissless...



On the way home Bubba doing his job...


dick says FYYFF to the snow. This was where we saw the train wave us to turn around, we decided to continue...

For some reason the plows kept going the other way.

We had one incident when Sarah biffed in the snow, She couldn't have fallen better on her butt and wished her bike to stop sliding while me and Dick were watching the action. No damage other than the slice off the cylinder guard. no more pics other than the Sheriff checking out the damage...



Fun day, good to see you guys...

All three in our group went down

That ride back made me really miss my GS. The VFR did not like that slip'n and slide'n thing

The VFR is fine just a bent clutch lever, I think it costs about a nickle for a new one. Mmmmmmm.......As a matter a fact; Cupcake's VFR is still set'n in my garage, do ya think he would notice if there was a bent one on his bike when he comes to pick it up

Hey cRAsH, we missed ya and told cRAsH stories

Yes you should have.

The weather was fair when I left the office but I ran into sleet and heavy rain between Sand Hill and Woodside roads. The ride up 84 was uneventful and parked to find a healthy crowd of hearty ADVRiders. Moistly rain During lunch in Sky Londa but just up the road it was snowing and not just flurries.

Sorry to hear that 3 riders went down in one group and was glad to see the Sheriff get up with no more that a little plastic damage. It was a crazy day and I needed a drink when we got back to the bottom.


Snow is lovely from a chairlift but from the saddle of a bike it is dicey at best. The battery in the camera was acting up so I only got a few shots which I am loading now.

Rad told the one about the NightTrain wine, milking stool and the one-eyed midget.

I had no idea - you should have been there to fill in the details.
