HEY LOOK! There is a V-Strom I wonder who it is? Post your V-Strom sightings here. For example. I-70 West of Indy April 7. Red and Black Wee-Strom. Who was it?

Also I think I saw the same one this morning, eastbound on 580 in the rain.

That was me on Bear Creek Rd, just to get out and ride! I started in Walnut Creek, then S on 680, W on Bollinger Canyon Rd, S on Crow Canyon Rd, W on Seven Hills Rd (Castro Valley area), W on rd past park and reservior (also Castro Valley area) that changes to 150th in San Leandro, W on 580, N on 13 to Old Tunnel Rd, over the hills on Grizzly Pk Rd, with a side trip down and up Marin St in Berkeley, then E thru Tilden Park down to, and across San Pablo Dam Rd onto Briones, where I saw you, then into Martinez, E on 4, S 680to WC.

Glad to tell you, that was not me riding in the rain! Only when I have to, such as on a trip.

Cool! I was breaking in a new front tire that day; as you probably noticed, I had some rather slow SUVs in front of me, which is probably just as well.

I started at California Sport-Touring in Hercules, then took 4 to Alhambra Road, then right on Alhambra Valley and left on Bear Creek, down into Orinda and then onto 24 to go into SF. Not very exciting, but at least I got the tire scrubbed in before the rain started.

Nice to "meet" you!
