Why California? This is why... :)

When folks ask why it costs so much to live in California, well a picture is worth a thousand words... dedicated to my riding friends who are frozen in their tracks for the time being until you can get back out there... :)

New Year's weekend - Dillon Beach, CA

Sunday, January 27, 2013 - dead of "winter" - Calaveras Rd.

Was a beautiful day out... about 55 degrees, road to myself, and the air smelled so fresh and clean...

Just checked my rate...and it's the same as you, 3.4%. And I'm well above poverty wages, LOL.

Damn you, damn you, damn you!
Guess you need to find a reason to come back out and visit your bike! ;)

I’ve done many of the roads around here multiple times but I’m always amazed at how there can always be one more gem to be found in them thar hills!

Snowy vistas are beautiful in their own right as well… I’m just a cold weather wimp so usually appreciate it from afar! Lol

Whereabouts in WY? A good friend of mine has a 2nd home in Powell… I love the small town atmosphere where everyone knows everyone… not something you find often in the big city… just real friendly folks.

I’m tentatively bookmarking 2014 for a 6-week US tour… so I may have to hit you up for some suggestions out your way to ride!

Good for them… that is hardcore! As stated previously, adaptation is good thing to be able to still do what you love to do!

It's 16 degrees outside today so I can really appreciate your gorgeous photos! Thanks for sharing, I hope you can get out and go ride a few miles on behalf of your snowbound fellow riders!

The Urals are definitely a challenge to ride and balance around turns… coming from 2-wheels the Spyder takes some time to get used to but it’s just a different kind of fun once you get tuned into it… railing around those big open sweepers is a blast! Dealers are usually pretty good about letting folks take test rides (at least out here) so see if there is a local dealer that might do that for her. Happy to answer any questions you or she may have. J

[QUOTE=Tgpatrsn;20642755]From my ride today. Gotta love CA!!!


Love the Marin headlands… will be riding that way in April toward Manchester for a weekend ride!

Someday, a Can Am in my future. Can't think of a better destination than your coast.
