    Low-sided!!!!!!!!! Yikes! If I had lowsided on hiway 29 I would have been run over in an instant by cage drivers panicked by the wet road. I guess theyve never seen rain?

    Glad you were able to pick it up and continue on.

    Luckily, I had stopped to take a picture before jetting through one of the fun parts just west of tomales. Just started to get on it and turned the corner to see the cop. It was a :huh moment but rolled up slow and turns out they were shooting a mini commercial and had the road closed for a few minutes :D

    Great pics Mr DaFoole! I had the pleasure of watching and commentating along with the boys as they warmed up to their Tequila/beer meltdown,quite entertaining and glad I didnt keep up on the imbibing as Im too old and would never recover.

    But Yeah,all in all another great get together at the Roadhouse,were lucky they put up with us.

    (Cleanest effing KLR ever Mikey picked up,freakishly so)

    BTW, if anyone found an old Swiss Army Knife in the back parking lot....I think I lost it out there in a drunken stumble...:lol3

    Not worth much but a lot of sentimental value....
