On Sunday afternoon my oldest son called and asked if I would be up for a ride. Me? Always! So he popped over and mama and I saddled up. We live close to some foothills that provide some limited opportunities for riding the twisties. Mama rode pillion and took the following pics and video:

Here's Chris on his '83 650 Nighthawk

Heading to the gas station before hitting the twisties


Another short video - the sound is crummy, but the picture is kind of cool. Mama had to pretty much turn around to take some of this

Your DW must be double jointed.

Hey, that would be fun!

I think she was just able to twist around to get the shot. I was pretty impressed considering we were hitting the curves at the time. I wasn't running too hard but still . . .

She did complain that it made her a little queasy though.

Neat stuff. I've been through Turnbull Canyon, it's a great little road for bikes. Lots of crazy stories, legends and myths about Turnbull.

There sure are. I remember when I was a kid being a bit scared to go through there at night. I heard stories about wild dogs, etc. Great place for a quick ride though. You must know the area well to have recognized Turnbull!
