Bay Area roll call ride 2018

Recommended Posts

Alright misfits, time be now for another group ride.  Out of respect for the possibility of snow or slides in the mountains, I suggest another coast ride.  Weather permitting, April 28, 2018, we meet at Starbucks,  260 Northgate Drive, San Rafael  94903.  We ride over to Pt. Reyes Station and up the Pacific Coast Hwy.  Lunch in Elk, and back down CA128 to Cloverdale.  We top off the ride at the world famous Hamburger Ranch;  those up for more fun can continue on CA128 to Calistoga and Winters.    Looking forward to good weather, good roads, and the camaraderie of good people.  Kickstands up at 8:30 AM.  Hope you can make it.

I’m down. Ktm won’t be out of the shop by then so I’ll be in the back of the pack riding my fat pig. Look forward to eating some BBQ, I mean seeing everyone again. 🤪

Bet you thought I was dead, but I'll see if I can make this happen. I fly back from Chicago the day before. 

 

Would be great to see you weirdos again!

What a response!  6 takers in the first 22 hours...I knew there was something I liked about you guys.  And George might be right about the Ducati's outnumbering the Honda's.  At least a few of us still ride VFRs.

Hahaha, the 1200...........

 

Funny I was just looking at my purchase history and I have done tires on 4 bikes this last year, plus the 1200 eats 2~3 sets per year....ouch!

 

I may bring the RC Tuono to see how it will do on an all-day ride.............

No shame here.   It's kinda cool to ride a bike where performance expectations are not stellar.  It's a gas to ride, and in the hands of a capable rider, would probably raise eyebrows.   Those Metzler Roadtec 01's are really confidence inspiring tires.  JJ
