Glad to see you on the West Coast finally, and enjoy the sun after what you've been thru lately.
See you next week for some new treads! Garage is waiting.

Glad you made it to the coast. Sorry about the sliding part but glad you aren't hurt. Also glad the bike is rideable!! If I would have seen sooner I have a friend in CO and I'm sure I could have gotten you a warm place to sleep. He also has a truck so he could have picked the bike up if you needed.

Ate shit @ about 45mph. That was an extreme experience sliding on ice, then, personally sliding on ice. I would have gotten the photo, but I knew an 18wheeler was not to far behind. Left blinker completely gone :p but otherwise no damage.

I know where that is. Monticello UT Hwy 191 only 2 hours from me. No snow 100 miles south west from there.

Once you get North of San Francisco Hwy 1 will get more curves. Enjoy.

Take the first left going north after the golden gate bridge.
The meridian headlands. Was there with my wife in 1997.
We spend an afternoon up there. Beautiful place.

Yes the Marin Headlands gives you a wonderful view of San Francisco to the south and a beautiful ride through the Coastal hills. I'm just an hour north of there.

Got it! On the list! Wanted to drive the bridge anyway.

I'll be up that way saturday. I'm helping a friend atm. I fly to NC tomorrow early, and Audstanley and I are going cross country in a Uhaul. Only planing it to be a 3 day ordeal with 2 big pushes. This should be interesting.
