Sat. Ride I'm going to take a ride up to Lower Lake, mostly back roads, so some rough roads(typical for me). If you want I'll post a map.

Yes the back burner. :evil: :evil: There will be NO ride for me Saturday. Right now I really dislike kids, 4H and people that get to go away for weekends. :twisted: :twisted: If I still end up in Davis it will be with 5 kids and suburban no room for the bike. Sorry people I was really really looking forward to this. :oops:

Sorry you can't make this ride Bowlbug.
The weather is going to be hard to beat and it should be nice and green, no dead weeds.

All the pic's were taking on my little goat road in the Napa valley. The weather was great and the total mileage was about 360 miles. I rode the first map with a couple of detours.

Ouch with pic’s, rub some salt in the wound. You must be taking lessons from ashadowrider. It looks like I missed a good ride. My weekend is coming, I have got to get up that way soon.

I put about 360 miles on the bike, I left Wren's cafe at 9:30, I took two sandwich's and three soda's with me and I made a detour over to Don's Dog Cafe in Monte Rio(damm good dogs). And if my wife went with me the ride would have been a lot shorter. :lol:

Yes Tunitas Creek RD. If they paved that road you let me know, I wanna ride it! That was just to sweet and would be fantastic with fresh asphalt!
I gotta get over there, that's all there is to it. The weather has turned, I have the time off, cash, I ain't got, but maybe I can turn in the pop bottles. :lol:

Remember a year or two ago I started a post about having a goal but no plan, 52 roads in the triangle I want to see? 8) Well I still have 47 to go on my list, not a lot of riding being done. :roll: Plus I have been watching the maps and pic’s being posted in the Cali area and I have found no other way. I have to win the lottery, quit my job and retire. :D But Tunitas, curiosity is getting the best of me. I hope slip away for a couple hours to go see the goat Saturday morning in Pescadaro. :idea: I might have to get lost on the way home and see for myself if there fresh blacktop.

Yes, I remember well your quest for the 52 RT. But don't feel like the Lone Ranger, I still have 8 counties in southern California that I am having a real problem getn to.
They just don't seem as important for some reason. I really enjoy what we have right here.
I am sure that when my mother lived in San Diego before I was born she said,"my youngest will be born in the Sierra Nevada for he is going to be a biker". :twisted:

Tunitas is forever engraved in my memory banks. Rod, Peewee and Bowlbug, I quit riding about 10 years ago.
I did finally ride through all 58 counties. Sadly when HSN changed ownership all my posts vaporized and I lost interest in this site.
Interestingly enough I met quite a few west coast riders and had some great rides with them.
But as it turned out I enjoyed riding solo best of all. Go where I wanted, do what I wanted, stop when I wanted and rode at my own speed. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow, sometimes on the interstate if I needed to get to the backroads at the opposite ends of California. So glad I live in the middle of the state.
