Well as you say Northern CA. is still alive and well (at least some are...), I'm still riding around in my area although not as much as I used to I believe it's an age thingy... still go to Veteran Cemetery in Dixon with the PGR once in awhile and that's about as far south as I go from up here in the Gold Country..., it's still good to see some post from you.

What's up everybody! I'm planning to visit North Cali, San Fran area in February.
Hopefully the weather will be nice enough for me to rent a bike and go for a ride!
Any suggestions on places to go ride??

And any suggestions on things to see and visit while I'm in the area with or without the bike? Thanks guys.

There are so many suggestions to give you, but best wait until you are sure you'll be here then you have to let us know how much time to ride you have and go from there, we have so, so, so many roads to ride in Northern California.............

So it's confirmed! I'm coming up to Cali in February!!
I just need to figure out details of what I'll be doing when I'm up and see about renting a motorcycle for a day or two!

Quick search showed me that renting a bike is not cheap!...Approx. 100-125$ a day plus insurance plus tax...damn! Ahh well, price you pay to have fun!!

I'll keep you guys posted on more details of when and where...maybe I can meet up with a few of you guys and you can show me around!

Depending on where you fly into take a look at this. It is about a 1 hour drive from The City. I am going to PM you this link also.

Hey Chico,
thanks for the PM! I checked out their site, although they are a little far, their prices are pretty awesome! I'll do some more research and find out more.

Other than that, if anyone is free that week, maybe we could organize a get together and go riding.

California is a BIG state with a lot to offer, you aint gonna see much of it in one day.
Check out Eagle Rider, you can find some good deals on their one way specials.One Way Specials
