Hey Doxiedog, I'm in Valley Springs, about an hours ride from you, but I frequently ride down to Modesto for business or to the Triumph shop. Maybe we can hook up for a ride some time. If you're interested in riding up here on great two lane mountain roads give me a shout. I'm retired, so I ride during the week as well as on weekends.I'm too far away.
Yeah, as long as it's not storming (the next 4 DAYS) ... I'm riding. It's not really any colder on the Peninsula or in SF in August most of the time then it is in November so why not.Monday rode to work to Pittsburg from Berkeley and thought I had enough layers on and boy was I wrong! I got a new respect for the year round riders up here in the bay. Being from so cal it's not even a thought but I'm all ready looking into insulated riding gear.
That's one of our main stomping grounds. Mostly in the winter as it gets wicked hot in the summer and the po-po presence is much higher. So we head to the coast!!Perhaps we could do a Berreyssa ride and meet up???
