Discovered the low fuel light on my new-to-me '08 690 Enduro isn't working. It did work for a bit, so this leaves me in the fun situation of guessing when gas is low. Amusingly, this started before I...

Next time I head up that way, I'll try to check both out. Buddy of mine and I discussed doing a ride around there in mid August.

Dug around and found this thread. Guess it's time to resurrect it again in hopes there's updates and some new routes. I tend to prefer to head north in to Marin and Sonoma counties.

I think the rucksack would be a little too vulnerable. My thought was a hard pelican case, with a foam filler and cutouts for just about everything you'd have with you. Modified as a topcase. Yes,...

Beautiful shots. I've been wanting a short focal length lens for a while, and this just reinforced it.

And a mild telephoto.

What make of lens did you use?

By Sunday people pretty much knew what had to be done. Outside of a few newcomers who had no clue what was going to happen, things went smooth as silk.

Hell, even I had fun.

7am, Sunday morning. Leaves from the ARCO in Tamalpais Junction. If I could convince myself it was a good idea to do it, I'd be there.

On weekends, I'd suggest avoiding 9, 84, and 35. Well, more so on Sundays.

Outside of that, there is nothing better than the Santa Cruz mountains. Swing by http://www.bayarearidersforum.com for...

First, time your ride up on 1 fairly well.

In Marin it's pretty clear, but a few things to keep in mind.


Tourists. They're kind of dumb, the drive like idiots, and they tend to do things...

Or worse, a valve job on the Aprilia Falco.

Honestly, the worst part of dealing with the Aprilia Mille is getting parts. Or having to extract the engine. For anything.

Buh.

Probably did. You went in expecting something the bike is not. For one, it's not an I4 engine. It delivers power very differently (and better, imho).
