I ride semi-regularly on tuesday or wednesday with a buddy who tattoos in santa rosa. No adv stuff. he has like an '89 virago that he ratted out and drove across the country. I either ride my '08 Concours 14 or my '79 R100rt. we have been known to do the dry creek rd - skaggs spring - hwy1 ride and other north bay afternoon rides. nothing too serious. Just nice views and the occasional beach stop. We have been waiting for it to warm up a little to explore further north. Im in oakland and have been riding the peninsula mostly the last couple weeks. Ill pm like sunday or monday if we put something together for wednesday.

I am always looking for weekend rides. I have a '12 Vstrom Adventure. Shoot me an email if anyones is putting together a mellow ride. I'm not looking to burn up the twisties. More into the scenery and a good lunch. Jeff Dravnx@novato.net.

Ride update

We had a great ride, we left Willits Saturday morning around 10 am and headed north on 101. Weather was a bit cold but not to bad, well until we got close to Fortuna but we expected that, I don't think I've ever seen good weather up that way. We got to Eureka fueled up and headed to Hwy 299, it was a pleasant ride until we started climbing in altitude then things got a little sketchy. The first sign, we where going around a right turn and a gust of wind hit us so hard on the right I thought the bike was going to come out from under us, it was crazy so we slowed way down and just putted along. We started up this one hill with a passing lane going maybe 30 ok 20 :}, we would start the turn on the inside lane and end up in the outer lane, even the SUV in front of us was getting blown around, total adrenalin rush and not the good kind. We got over the top and things settled down a little until we got to Whiskey town lk, going over the bridge we got another wake up call, shewww, we had enough of that but it was smooth "sailing" after that. Got a room in Redding, had a nice visit and dinner with my son and his girl friend and just relaxed.

We where thinking of just taking 5 to 20 home on Sunday but after a good night sleep we decided to go ahead and ride 36 back to 101 and I'm glad we did because it was a great ride with no major wind problems. Going over the higher elevations the road was clear and dry but still snow drifts, it was beautiful. We managed to stop and take a few pic's along the way, I'll post them after we get them off the camera. As we got close to Fortuna of course it got cold, a bit windy but nothing like Saturday. Stopped in Garberville for some hot coco, mmmm that was good. By this time it was getting late and our butt's where telling us "GET HOME" so we put the mighty Strom in high gear and blasted back to Willits. Over all, great weekend, great ride, did close to 600 miles. Would have been nice to have company along but it is what it is.

Looking foward to the next adventure.

Its called faith tattoo. i want to say it is on mendocino ave. been up there a quite a few times and most of the guys there seemed pretty nice. I know my friend that works there is a pretty good tattoo artist and they are always busy there. it seems it has only been raining in the bay area on tuesday and wednesday when he has off so i havent been up there in probably a month.

Did a 10 hour ride yesterday from Santa Rosa, through some back-roads of Napa, up to Indian Valley Reservoir, Bartlet springs, then almost to Bear Creek before most everyone had enough. 2 DR650's, 12GS, Yamaha FZ1

Needless to say, I'm ready to go back....good times.

OK. No bikes for me.

I broke my foot so I have to go in for surgery next week for a screw/plate upgrade.

FECK!
