Yeah, you'll fit right in.
You live in a great spot for fun day trips. The Hwy 1 to HMB is classic Bay Area. Skyline drive at the top of Hwy 92 is a mecca for motorcycles. Hwy 9 is another good road near Santa Cruz. The Sonoma area also has some great riding, too. When the weather clears in spring, Tahoe makes a nice weekend trip, especially if you avoid Hwy 80 and 50.
