SO, YEAH. I tend not to antagonize coppers because there is just no way to tell if the one you are about to interact with is a power-tripping dickhead. (I know, only .005% of cops are PTDs, but they're SO memorable when you run across one) They should come up with a labeling system "Warning: this law officer contains 6000% of your recommended daily allowance of ASSHOLE".

I laughed so loud at this I scared the girl sitting next to me! And yes, they are memorable when you run into one.

Hi M N B,

Cool! Now we're talking ...
I'll hopefully be riding down tomorrow ...
So, that's Hollister Hills this weekend, camping at Madrone Friday, 4/26 and Sat. 4/27 ...
And Stonyford on Friday, May 17 ...




Daniel and Rex Nemo (Nemo Brinker on BARF), of SFMoto, getting my ol' KLR into shape for the Sheetiron ... doing some welding on the ol' gal ...

SFMoto will have a crew at the Sheetiron ... Daniel will be riding his KLX ...



My frame was cracked ... on both sides in the same area that you can see in this photo ...

Never argue with a man carrying a gun ... they teach that in law school ... ha.

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Hi LeDakaR!,

Maybe I'll try to pack up today ... can meet you at the Mercury Cafe tomorrow morning (Paige and Octavia) ... I'll be happy to get out of the City anytime before rush hour ... 2 pm ... so, I'm pretty flexible ...

There will be a ride leaving from the clubhouse Saturday morning ... rider's meeting at 9 am at 18th St. and Folsom ...

We also have a meeting tonight at the San Francisco Motorcycle Club ... Ace Cafe Rob is often there around 7 pm showing roadracing (MotoGP, WSB, etc.) on our big projection screen ...

BAARCers always welcome ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Meet and greet?

I don't get to post or interact much, but I was hoping to find out if there is any meets coming up. I finally got my bike back together and would love to do some local riding or maybe not so local! PM me if you would like to try and set up some dirt/highway rides.

Hi M N B ... the plan is Madrone Campground ... should be plenty of room ... the more the merrier!

see you all there,

I know its late notice, but my plans just changed. Got any room in that circle of wagons for an East Bay Noob on a KLR?

Ha. All in good fun ... apologies to Cormac McCarthy ...

So. Let's Ride! Who's going to Hollister on April 26, 27 or 28th? Who's going to be in Stonyford for the Sheetiron on Friday, May 17th?

BAARC forever!

see you around the campfire,
