    Hello!

    I see a guy on Broadway a lot who I think then parks at 5th and F in the parking lot, on a new KTM Adventure. Anyone know him?

    Well heck, we have our own riding group here. :-)
    PM me if any of you would like to go for a ride. Whether it be street, dual-sport or dirt, I'm always up for one.

    Had some time to kill before having to pick up the kids from school, along with some dry weather, so I braved the cold this morning and rode up to Patrick's Point. I'll tell you riding on the freeway when it's 40 degrees outside is cold.

    I may have been camping there before I was born,for sure when I was 3/4 /5 years old and so on. Back in the day a few families would head over,eventually involving dragging boats over and fishing out of Trinidad.
    It was Nice out today,cool but nice.

    You just made madeoutaglass and I giggle!

    Hey Kenny, my wife does know Tracy. I guess Tracy told her a few days ago that we had met. I'm gradually broadening my circle. Soon Scotty_707 won't be my only earthly friend, LOL

    Hey me too. Family trips to the north coast started a life long fondness for Humboldt, Del Norte, and Mendocino. Even got a piece of parchment from HSU. Got a spot all picked out in Prairie Creek Redwoods where I want my kids to leave me.

    Sure enough,I grew up camping on the coast,my 1st big 3 day trips on streetbikes just out of high school were over to the coast camping in farmer's fields and anywhere that was free. Can ride over through Covelo from Chico and miss a lot of traffic and pavement when the pass isnt snowed in.

    A little off topic, but here's some pics from the Ferndale Lighted Tractor Parade in case anyone missed it.
