Thanks!!
I do have the ability to sell off of smugmug, but that would entail me to organize the galleries better
I suppose if anyone wanted to they could just let me know what picture/pictures they wanted and I could make it work….

Back to the riding stuff…...

Allow me to catch up here….

out and about for a quick spin in Pt Reyes and bumped in to this cool cat, notbetty, at the gas station….










.
She definitely rocks her Ninja!













.
It was pretty fun to ride with another girl!
It was getting late in the day so we decided to go grab some coffee and have a chat before we had to be on our separate ways…..


Blazing down the 101 for caf……..
















.
All of a sudden we see this guy ride up, try to park between us and I immediately recognize the bike.
It's Kbasa…..

Let the parking lot no rules race begin……….

















.
And off I go……

Wait??!!
Where is everyone??















.

So of course I stop and try to make a new friend…..


















.
He's a Clydesdale ...













.
….with a mad itch…….

Thanks so much for sharing your photos and bike stories!


Thanks.
I have fun doing it.


I'm pretty much a hack, but I have been blessed with the ability to see the picture in my mind sometimes before I take it.

I also have a photographic memory.
Ask me what day of the week something happened was, and I might be stuck for an answer,
but ask me what color the stripe on the tiny jar sitting in the corner at that shop in Martinique 20 years ago was and I could tell you.

And for all the smart asses out there, it was blue

Oh sure - like any of us can prove you wrong!

I have a photographic memory too, but it ran out of film years ago....

Is funny that you mention that!

When I was younger, I worked on a farm that had a 1947 dodge powerwagon... starter on the floor, pre-synchromesh transmission...would quite literally climb a tree! When we got it out on the road, up in high gear it was doing about 35 max, but the speedometer read 85!

neat old truck

Temping fate at Tomales bay……..

More than one way to do that….







Climbing around on rocks at the waters edge with zero traction boots…..























Or,

Take a brand new KLR out for a spin………..













Not too shabby of a ride for a DS 650.
Nothing terribly flashy about it,
but I was pleasantly surprised, esp after hearing the bike get slammed over and over..
I give it a thumbs up for a good 'get on and go' bike.
Wouldn't mind plinking around in Alaska on one of these

Getting there is a different story of course

Yep, the stock seat is a torture rack. After 10,000 miles my butt was to done with the ride.
