I've been mostly riding with BARF and SBR crew lately, but would love to ride with some fellow Ducati riders. Anyone up for a ride this weekend? Maybe Tunitas, Stage, Pescadero Gazos creek type of loop.

I can probably get out for half a day, but I'll be sticking in the East Bay. I'm still not sure if I'm up to any long rides yet.

I'll probably do Highland Road, Altamont Pass Road, Patterson Pass Road, and Tesla/Corral Hollow. I'm not ready for Mines yet.

Kevin (of Monstrack) and I are doing a ride on Saturday at around 1 p.m. I'm meeting him in LaH0nda. If anyone's doing a morning ride (around 8 or so), I'll join but I'll have to get to LaHonda by 1 p.m.

Anyone else who wants to do the 1 p.m. ride is welcome to join.

Your hand still bothering you?
Cold makes it go stiff and ache. Working a clutch for too long makes my thumb hurt. And my grip is still a bit weak.

Other than that, it's good as new. 8)

sorry... been busy at work all week so haven't been able to post...

- the 1 p.m. ride is still on... rain supposed to stop at 2 a.m. in Los Gatos. I'll meet everyone 9:30 a.m. at Los Gatos Starbucks. I live about 7 min. from there.

- anyone's welcome to join the ride... Welcome aboard Allen! I think there's a heavy concentration of DML/SFBMHA riders in Los Gatos.

- Geezer... maybe next time

- Scott - I rode part of the route for the April ride today during my lunch break. From Los Gatos up Hwy 9 across to 35 to the end... took about 40 min or so. There are some wavy sections of the road that we should be careful around (there's some sort of tumor growth under the pavement on one of the turns north of Alice's that's about 2" tall or so).

Hey guys,

Missed you this morning. I waited until 9:35 at LG *$s, but didn't see any motos. Oh well... Ended up riding with the BARF dudes. It was a great day for riding! Someone left a SFBMA card on my bike at Davenport. Was that you guys?

Daffe,

I though you left that business card on a red duc.

Allen. ,

Daffe and I had a great ride, except the anti-ice grave and water on the road. we slipped around a coulpe times each.

we went up 9,
turned right at the stop sign in Boulder Creek to Jamison Creek road,
fallowed the signs to Bonny Doon and hiway 1,
had lunch at Davenport,
hung-out with Sarah, Ned and friend with a black Mulitstrada (mmm),
talked motoring and camping in Death Valley this weekend with her BMW group,
sat in the sun on the porch eating (beef) Whale Burgers,
road up Swanton loop ( beautiful area),
back south on hiway 1 to visit MotoItalia in Capitola,
road home old San Jose - Soquel Road.
great ride, great day.
wish we could have meet and road with you.

rrockstar.
