Amazing how small this self propelled gun is.

The original mini gun?







I don't know the story of this can, whether it was for water or fuel. Plus it seems to have a compartment for ?

We catch the ferry to Ryde Island.



Underway.



Not much time to take better photos, it's a pretty quick cruise.

A quick ride to the other side and we catch the second ferry.



The line up waiting.



As you must have figured out, it was pretty hot that day. Even still, I was ATGATT.

Finally on the move, the Mighty Tempter is not too happy with the hot starts.





Thank you for travelling with Caltrans, enjoy your trip.





It's time to head for home and once again on the Antioch Bridge.



I split off from the rest of the club members and since the ride home is pretty boring, I'll spare you.

Yesterday we had our Westside Ramble. Another crappy picture of the S & M bridge.




Really have to figure out a better mounting system for the camera or just a better camera. Paying toll at the Martinez bridge.





Got off 80 and onto 113 towards Woodland where it's a much calmer pace.





Meeting place is Yuba City's Waffle Barn. This is a good old fashioned diner with big breakfasts and warm greetings. Alas, since I left half hour later than I planned and missed breakfast.

We stop off at a point of interest.





Dude gives us a quick history lesson of the area and the significance of the monument.

Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day and roads to travel on.





This is the highest point in the small range of mountains.

This is the town of Colusa. Last time we were here, there were alot of bicyclists riding along for no apparent reason. No such exodus today.





I've just realized why my pictures are so out of focus, as the speed picks up, the camera cannot handle the roar of the Mighty Tempter's unleashed horsepower!




This is the town of Maxwell.

Here come the twisties.






Listen to the unbridled fury!

Ok, think the photos I posted were bad? You should see the ones I rejected posting! I'll spare you.

Here's the overlook before Stonyford.

Bees certainly are uncooperative.





Time to head down the hill, forgive the poor riding skills of your truly, I couldn't keep up with Larry.




All right lunch time in Elk Creek!





After lunch pretty much called it a day.

Wonder what the story is about these rail cars out here.




Went back through to Maxwell and took one last photo before I hit I5 back to home.



Put over 500 miles today. Whew, need a good nights sleep after today.

Sunday was a beautiful day for a ride in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We met in Los Gatos....
