I thought it was getting confusing with all the SouthBay stuff

Since you asked ...

Although I did want to take our waitress home with me, I did not care for the pizza or cider at lanesplitters last time.

Is there good BBQ near that area? There is a Kinders in Walnut Creek now. Anyone tried it yet?

If you want good BBQ, hit Bo's in Lafayette or Smokin' Okie in Pleasant Hill.

I believe you have already announced a time & place, and received several INs. Have FUN!

I'm familiar with, and have occasionally gotten good bbq at, both. Only a little better than Back-40 typically, but similarly over-priced. BBQ is cheap meat, except in Yuppieland(tm).

Hi:
I just got a BMW Adventure last week. I live in Orinda, CA.
I like to join you guys for rides.

Is there a special person in charge?
Thank you

Hi, looks like you're finding your way around this place

Nope, no one's in charge, it's really kind of a loose association based on who's wants to make the effort.

This thread is set up as a way to organize a group dinner/gab session for East Bay riders. You're closer to the East Bay than me, and they let me join once, so you should be good too .

What kind of riding experience do you have? Do you like off-road stuff? I checked your profile but couldn't really tell...

I tend toward solo riding & off-road myself, but there are often people posting in the West regional threads looking for people to join them on rides.

Group rides are often less enjoyable for my tastes, mostly because I prefer to set my own pace and find myself focusing more on staying with the group than enjoying the ride, or improving my riding skills, as I can when I'm by myself. But that's just me. There's probably a hint in there as well as to why I've only made one of these meet & eats...

There seems to be a pretty active BMW NorCal owner's group that schedules monthly rides--have you checked there? Also, Adventure Designs in Hayward has monthly rides on Saturdays leaving from their shop.

Anyway, welcome, and enjoy the ride!
