birthday ride 2011 cont'd

Let's see, Where were we....
Laving Bodie heading back to the 395.














Crazy thing about the Iphone 4..
It has a reversible camera.
Sometimes I forget that and shock myself.
The helmet hiding my face keeps the shock to a livable zap...


















This is what I really had in mind.....
I think it's about 7,000 ft here..






















What's worse than traffic?

Stopped traffic.

Probably not the angle you want to see a CHP cruiser from.

Contrary to popular belief you have to be pretty farkinig fast to actually need Pilot Powers or Pures, even on bigger power bikes, and even then the profile is more the advatage vice raw traction.

I've tracked Road 2cts (the ones in the photo) on my Speed Triple a couple times without issue, I usually ride in the middle or better of the intermediate group at trackdays.

There, we can now turn this thread into a tire, chain lube and oil thread
Let's not.
Take the equipment debates elsewhere.
Thanks.

Thanks!
Looks hot, but was down to the mid 30's at night.

I lurked around in the AM's over the coffee waiting for it to warm up to at least 50f before heading out.
Getting fussy(er) in my old age you know

The end of the birthday ride 2011

Decided to roll home through South Lake Tahoe which put me over the Monitor Pass.
Another wonderful scenic ride.
Not too many pics from here to home as I startred to get pretty tired and decided best to focus on the riding V the picture taking..
However...




























Just outside of Tahoe I could see the area was going to be in for a colorful sunset...
































I thought I'd stop in Placerville for a quick cup of coffee to aid the remaining few hours on the bike.....
Sadly, the speed at which I recieved my drink made me miss most of the sunset,
but, I did get three unusual shots of my caffeine captor....

The Iphone..















The Lumix...














The Canon....



















And that's it folks.
A pretty nice few days away from life.

Happy Thanksgiving TDP. Atleast they boxed you in with a couple Harleys, last time I can remember getting boxed in like that it was a couple rather upset local officers with 3 state troopers for backup.

Love the thread, excellent pictures. Ride safe.

Those aren't Harleys.
