We go on some pretty cool rides all around Northern California, sometimes for a few hours and sometimes for a few days. I've decided that the adventures are definitely blog fodder, so here they are. Links to the routes are included in the posts.
- East Bay Hills Loop Castro Valley to Tracy Loop
- Friday on the Central Coast San Jose to Santa Cruz Loop
- Feather River Canyon & Quincy Weekender Livermore to Plumas County
- Stillwater Cove Camping, Jenner, CA North Coast
Along the Way
Where to eat (or not), where to stay (or not), and what to do.
I got my M-1 and bought a Harley Dyna Low FXDL, a.k.a. Blue Hoggie. Two months later, I was rear-ended while in my really easy to see red car and my back hasn't been the same since. I joined a local motorcycle group through Meetup so I could ride as a passenger.
I showed up at the first ride with my gear knowing no one. It turned out pretty well. (An understatement.) Somewhere along the way I met TG, which was definitely and unexpected bonus :-) I'm a heck of a pillion, but love having my own ride.
Now I'm in three groups, traversing all sorts of roads with some very cool people. And laughing. A lot. We start each ride with a serious safety talk. Biggest rules are to ride within your abilities and leave your ego in the parking lot.
