    How about today? :D

    It was nice to get the RT out for a spin today. I've been riding the GS pretty solid for the past few weeks. But dayam, it was cold today. Thermals and a few Gerbing jackets at Alices today.


    Hi kids! 5 advrider points for the first person who can name everybody around the table.

    Velcro is up to no good. If the Canon was just two seconds faster, this would have been a much more interesting shot :evil

    Is George about to blow chunks? :puke2

    Yeah, well same to you, buddy. :flip
    Imagine...800 mile round trip just to eat lunch with us at Alices. What a loon. :loco

    Obligatory GS shot.

    Hmmm...GS's look good with black valve covers too. Nizice.

    Velcro gets around.

    Lot's of fun stuff to read on George's bike.

    Clean GS. Very very clean. Disgustingly clean. Wish it were mine.

    The HB bars are very nice and look like they would provide great protection in a crash. Except for that achilles heel on the 1100...and the fact that you have to complete remove the final drive and tranny to do a valve adjustment. :heh:

    One of the few folks who have more bigger lights on his GS than fish :lol2

    Nah, with the Union Suit I was just right. Had to pull it out of the closet 'cause I taking a week off soon high in the Rockies.

    Nice to meet all and see RLJ for the second time.

    Returned to work (grr) via the Divine Skyline-Page Mill combo. The chill and the wind scrubbed the air crispy clean. On the right miles of rolling brown California hills roll down to the shore, the marine layer beaten back to China, vast Pacific extending to the horizon. On the left the ridge road looks out over Silicon Valley with Mt. Diablo 40 miles away, but as clear as if I could touch it. In another month the hills will start to turn their lush Winter green from the onset of the rains. Today, though, was the first crisp day of fall. The views were spectacular, and I had to will my eyes down to the road.

    Sorry, no pics.

    Here's the intersection of 35 and 84. Alice's Restaurant is the building by the red car in the center of the image.

    I did notice the bike had a little extra pep (the good kind) this morning.

    Coffee and a scone added to the mix

    The ride was cut short because I had to get back to go wine tasting with these two beauties[​IMG]

    Sometimes all the things in life just feel right. Too bad work crashes into it once in a while

    Sunday night and I am just getting home. Stayed the weekend in SF. Hit the slab for a 5 hour drone home today. Lunch was great. Always fun meeting the Bay area crowd. Looking forward to the next one, just let me know when.
