I was finely was able to get away for an extended ride. I left San Jose at 3am this morning, to get up to Baker City. 744 miles and I arrived in Baker City  at 5pm.
Life's journey is not To arrive At the grave safely In a well preserved body But rather to skid In sideways Totally worn out Shouting Holy shit what a ride.

On a scale 1-5, they were a 3.., but also only $7.

Some Morning Thunder in Quincy.

I love me some Morning Thunder though I haven't been to Quincy in six or seven years. Is it still awesome?
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

Rode up to Fortuna on Sunday with my brother.  I met my brother on Hwy 101 in Cloverdale, then on hwy 128 to Fort Bragg and then to Leggett and on to Fortuna.  Had dinner at the Eel River Brewery.  Came back on Monday, via Ferndale and the Lost Coast and Honeydew and Briceland before getting back on 101 at Garberville before going home.    The weather on the Lost Coast was quite warm.  650 miles in 2 days.

I rode Sunday on 36, 89, and 49 to Grass Valley.  Then a shorter day yesterday taking 20 (nowhere near as good as the Ft Bragg to Willits section), 99 (meh), 113 (not much better), 16 (improving), I-505 (wasn't on it long), 128 (OH YEAH), Dry Creek Road (a mistake but I'm glad I made it.  Truly a goat trail), and 12 to Santa Rosa.  Today I'll head back home on 101 but taking the old alignments (Dutcher Creek Road, 271, 254) where available.

Ok. So I didn't ride 'today', but.. I did get out last weekend on the mothballed GTS!

Started in Sacramento, rode to Clearlake for breakfast. Then over Hopland Grade, Skaggs Spring Rd for a rest stop at Stewarts Point. Then north on 1 to 128. East to Boonville for a quick break, then back over Hopland Grade to Clearlake for an overnight stop.

Well not today, but on Saturday. Suzy Blue got a new rear tire, so a nice 100 mile scrub-in ride up 33 to the Ozena US Forest Service Fire Station.

Need to shop for a new riding suit. My Joe Rocket Trixie suit is showing its age.

Commuted and ran errands yesterday and tomorrow.  Saturday I took my roommate out for an afternoon picnic in the mountains.  The view from the picnic spot:

Friday I'm riding to Ashland for a couple days for more pillionizing.  An actual pillion audition!

Friday I'm riding to Ashland for a couple days for more pillionizing.  An actual pillion audition!

It was a most excellent pillion audition.  She's a very good pillion and off the bike she's someone I want to be around.  It all went well until we were coming back to my hotel last night and the rear tire went flat a block away.  We walked the rest of the way and napped.  When I woke up, I remembered I had the Anonymous book and I called the local number.  He came right over with tire fixing stuff, including a tube that was almost the right size.

We worked it for over an hour and got the tire remounted but I managed to fuck up the tube and it's still flat.  She hung out and held the light for us.  I told the Anonymous guy that it was our third date.  He agreed that she might be a keeper.

Went up to Marin county and rode some back roads and Highway 1.  This is Highway 1 just north of Jenner.

I spent the day chasing my boys around our little town. The oldest was riding his Puch moped, youngest was on the Chappy, and I was chasing them on my new to me Honda CT110. We were the little bike gang, racing all the way up to 25 mph, hooligans the lot of us.

Sorry no pics, too busy having fun  ;D
