Nice! I officially have piston-envy.
There are some great rides along the coast to the north of SF but they're all paved. Sadly, the nearest dualsport rides are pretty far away. My riding buddies and I usually leave Friday afternoon to knock out the highway miles, spend Saturday exploring, and then find a meandering route back on Sunday. If we have sportbikes with us they'll take a different route and meet up with us at a prearranged hotel in the evening.
We'd love to have you along. Several friends of mine just started riding (including a couple hotties
) so there's a mix of all skill levels.
