Some random guy who had the same idea..........
He offered to move, but I think it kind of made a nice shot.........

Still on the bike........








I've got to get in and get a better shot.........







Looking both ways.........























They've put these cool little pieces of art all over the 'benches/walls' down by the water...

I've never noticed them before........











I saw them when I was looking for a place to put the camera for this shot....
Keep in mind there were tons of tourists and locals walking around and not to mention my questionable parking, I didn't have lots of time to toy with settings
Still keeping the day job and/or waiting to hear back from Triumph........







OK, time to get moving........
I'm starting to get cold and stuffy.......

It was great to get out even if things didn't go quite as planned!

There's Coit tower on the left.....

Way to quote every picture Dan






Red's.... I don't know how many times I've stopped there when traffic is bad, and doing the 280 bypass around to get to the bridge

Nice pics again, glad you're feeling back up to riding :jealous

Yeah, low battery charge + low outside temps = dead battery

$$ and/or surgery at this point are the 2 things that will keep me from going.

Getting ready to ride today though!!!!!! It's a beauty out!!
Wait what, no Utah on that list?!?!?!?!?

We chatted about the Guzzis and the triumphs for a few and just as I was saying 'no real complaints with the Tiger, see you guys later and I think I'm going to head out to the light house'...........

Ignition..........
Nothing............

X5............


I had already given them the thumbs up sign and they were gone........
Well, crap! Sorry that we abandoned you. Our bad. We should have waited until it actually lit. Apologies. It appears that things eventually worked out well for you, even though the trip out to the lighthouse didn't happen.

That said, we were having a major good time on those two Guzzis. I'll post up about it later. Those are some great photos you got of it.

Glad I found this thread!

Today.....

Another clear day...I thought I'd try to make it to pancakes and the light house again.........

Rode out to Tomales first and started south on 1.
As I came in to the first change of natural light turn and for that reason, a place I always slow up a bit,
I saw this guy who had just slid out.......

The gray haired man in the photo helped get his bike up and was more shocked than the rider (Shown looking at his broken turn signal).

We called 911 and just sat with him until the FD came.
He landed on his hip, but everything else seemed OK.
It was a sharp reminder that anything can happen anytime.






I'm off again........
Decided pancakes could wait..
Daylight and warmth is ticking away........

On my way out Sir Francis Drake Blvd toward the light house, I decided last minute to turn on to Pierce Pt rd.
I don't think I've been out there since I was about 8.







Look at this view!!
The Pacific at the end there.....












Happy cows......









Great minds think alike.........






Another peek at the water.......
