Great Ride

Just got back from a lovely ride....from home near the beach in San Francisco over the GG Bridge and up Highway 1 to Point Reyes and back.

I had been thinking about selling the DL1000 K7 because of damage to one of my knees. Instead, I lowered it 3/4", tuned it, replaced the drive chain and fell in love with it all over again.

What a great machine! Can't wait 'till Spring. Mt. Lassen and Mt. Shasta beckon...

Your ride brings back memories. My wife and I lived in Pinole, CA near Richmond for a year in 1977 while I was doing work-study at Chevron USA. I bought a brand new Honda 400-4 and rode it all over the Bay Area. I remember many early morning rides over to Marin and up the coast. It would be hard to find better or twistier roads.

When the time comes, holler up if you want company for that. In particular I've been meaning for quite a while now to explore the Lassen volcanic park. :mrgreen:
