Sorry about that short time in advance.

Thanks Guys

Hi Hund,

I imagine you've made some plans for Wednesday by now, but otherwise we may be able to hook you up for Thursday night here in San Francisco ... if Thursday works for you at all, instead of Wednesday ...

We'll be at our clubhouse at 18th Street and Folsom this Thursday night (7/25) from 5 pm or so until late ... we have a regular meeting starting at 8:30 pm, and we often have people like yourself stand up and share about their motorcycle rides (if you are into making a speech, ha! ) ... anyway, one of our members is just getting back from an eight month tour of Ushuaia and back, so it'd be fun to hear about your experience ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn

Congrats Paul and Jill! It was awesome being there. Great party. Have a great cruise! I'm sure in true Paul fashion, they will find motos, scooters or what not to ride there. :) Congrats you two and I look forward to more rides with you guys. :)

Hey Hund,

Hopefully you've got Wednesday covered ... we can't help on Wednesday, but can probably help Thursday ... not sure what your travel plans are ...

We intend to show the Laguna Seca Round of MotoGP at the clubhouse starting at 7 pm on Thursday night ... having been there, you may be interested in seeing it on TV ...

Anyway, hope to be able to say hey ... otherwise, I'll look forward to reading your ride report!

BAARCers and ADVers welcome to watch the roadracing, too!

Lake Alpine Camp & DS Ride, 7/27 - 7/30 ...

Here's a rough route map ... Alpine California is
about 180 miles from Lower Haight and 3 1/2 hours, according to Google ...

Hi BAARC,

This is looking like a go for me ... riding up on Saturday, 7/27, at some point ... from Lower Haight ...

Lake Alpine Camp & DS Ride, July 28-30, 2013

Seems like a nice handful of folks interested ... Catfish says he'll be
there Sunday through Wednesday ...
We'll have three or four riders camping out on the
east end of Alpine Lake on Saturday night ...

Okie-dokie ... see you around the campfire,

Hund in Santa Cruz part two

Hello.. My name is Alex and I live in Santa Cruz. I contacted Matthias last week when I read his post here:
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=895933

He has been staying with me and my family since last Friday. He rode into town with a few issues on the GS .. cracked frame and a broken rear shock mount. A few phone calls on Saturday we had the frame repaired and later found a M10 bolt at ACE hardware to replace the bolt. Oh and his rear shock is toast too! On Sunday we spent the day at the Motto gp ( a first for both of us). Anyway ....he is still looking for a place to stay in SF. If you know someone who can put him up a night or two send an email or post up here. SFMC John has been in contact and it's looking good for Thursday but he has not had much luck for tonight. He does not have a phone (been on the road 17 months). He has been excited by the help and support found on this site!We have enjoyed his company and look forward to hearing more from the road! We will be having breakfast in Davenport and then riding up hwy one. I will see him off in Half Moon Bay....Thanks...
Alex
ps...don't fear the beard!
A real sweetheart!

Ride Reno

Is anyone planning to do the Ride Reno 200 in September? I'm thinking about signing up but would be hitting it solo, which I would rather not do. Just trying to see if there are any other solo guys wanting someone to ride it with or anyone who is cool with me tagging along.

All my riding buddies ride sport touring bikes, so I'm trying to make some friends in the Adventure department.

Find anyone yet? I'll do it with you.. I've been looking forward to this for years. I made it through the LAB2V last year without getting lost.. 200 miles sounds like it'd be a fun day of kicking around.

I don't have a regular riding buddies, their all chasing girls and nesting or they don't race off road or ride dual sport..

Thank you guys for your input on roads to take. Browneye and I invaded, took some pictures, ate some good food. Missed Alice's, bad timing. We met some nice people and yes we did have to deal with some cagers.

The maps are book marked for future adventures!

Hi all! I am staying in San Francisco for a few weeks and looking for ride suggestions... mostly interested in day trip stuff. Any suggestions on fun twisty and scenic roads would be appreciated!
