After extensive injuries/illness last year and technical difficulties with the bike due to having it sit all year, it's very nice to be back out in running in this wonderful weather...


Would be nice to meet up with some locals again :)

Sunday Ride

Went out from Oakland to Pt. Reyes today. Talk about micro-climates. Sunny and warm in Marin, rainy and 51 at Pt. Reyes lighthouse. Hey - fun stuff and better than a day at work.

From sun to gloom in 10 miles. Pt. Reyes. Didn't take many photos - it was too wet, windy, and cold...



Water fogging everything.



It was so foggy that the deer couldn't even see us 100 yards away..





Afterwards going up Fairfax Bolinas Rd.

Yep! They make some awesome sandwiches, I couldn't pass it up :). And lemme know, I have a weird schedule but usually I can find some form of compromise :).

I'm not sure if we've met, but I think we'll get along just fine. :)

At this point, I'm don't know if I'll be riding this weekend, or if so, where. I think a New Idria/Clear Creek run might be on the hot side, though (haven't checked wunderground.com for the forecast, though)

Not an adventure ride, but this seems to be the best place to show this:

A garage sale/swap meet in Emeryville on Sunday, July 15, 2012

Hey Nicky,

Hope to see you there on Saturday ...

Is there a fee to sell stuff there? Or how does the garage sale work if you have stuff to sell ...?

See you in the garage,

John!

If you want to sell your stuff on SUNDAY, July 15, show up with a pile and put it on the floor - sell all you can!

Or if want Addiction Motors to sell your stuff for you, they're taking a very small cut (I think 10%, but don't quote me - call Galen!) to sell your stuff for you.

The number to call is: 510.473.7247

It's basically a swap meet - but no fee for bringing your stuff.

Great shot and miss having the Summit Store on my sales route, had that about two decades ago. Good to hear the health is getting good enough to take that KTM out for a spin around Nor Cal. Perfect timing as we have had the mellowest summer I can remember for this area, average temps are perfect for hitting the open road on a motorcycle. Sadly, I am out for this summer and forced to watch on the sidelines with a broken leg and crappy daytime t.v. to kill some brain cells.
