Hey, congratulations Daffe! :D

I'll be riding this weekend. Probably sticking to the northern roads, but my hunt for a pickup truck may take me south. Early Sunday would be great, especially if this weather holds.

A big congrats Daffe!!! Where you going on your honeymoon?

Humbaba, are you up in the northbay then? Just drop me a line closer to the weekend and maybe we can meet up.

Hey Daffe! Cheers! Um, yes, I think not riding on your honeymoon would be the sensible thing to do.

I might be riding Sunday though, esp. if we do a northern route. Stuck in the car all day Sat. so I figure I deserve a ride, no?

Congratulations Daffe! Is she shorter than you? ;D

I would love to ride on Sunday, but since I dropped my bike in the garage today and bent the bars (again), I have to wait for my clipons to arrive.

Jeez Paul, I hope you didn't mess up that beautiful tank!

Don't you just hate when that happens?

As for Sunday, why don't we do a Sonoma or Napa ride? Jack, have you discovered any nice roads up your way that won't be too clogged with SUV-driving wine imbibers?

No, thank Whomever (definitely not me), the tank is fine and so is the rest of the bodywork.

I can join you guys Sunday on the KLR...I'm curious to see if I can keep up with a group of Monsters on it. Pick a really twisty bumpy route 8)

I'm always surprised at how little traffic there is on Pope/Chiles Vly. There are other roads I have yet to explore, particularly the one that runs from Calistoga out to Middletown. I've heard there's a nice way to loop back toward Napa from there - to the east.

As for Sonoma Co there's that one up by Lake Sonoma that runs out to the coast that you (Michael) and I talked about exploring. A couple of friend's have told me that it's the ideal moto road - nice sweeping turns and no cages. I'll have to look at a map.

That said, I don't know if I'll be able to go on a ride Sunday since I have to find a used pickup to buy (Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, or even a T100 if anyone happens to know of one). I'll have to play it by ear.

Omigod, you are talking about Skaggs Springs/Stewarts Point Road. That is the best road I've ever been on. My ex Sian and I went to Sea Ranch last Memorial Day, yes, a holiday weekend, and on Saturday in the middle of the day we only saw TWO cars going in the OTHER direction. It's probably almost sixty miles in total. The first half is like a road race, with perfect surface and banks (and marked at 35 mph--HA!), and the second half is like single track, sort of like the west side of Fairfax Bolinas. Can't recommend it too highly.

Just checking the DML board... THANKS to everyone for the wedding congrats! the big day is tomorrow! (in 21 hours)...

LOTS to do!! I'll be in Hawaii the whole next week (had to *tear* myself away from work) but at least I took today off. I'll be back riding not next weekend but the weekend after. (I might be on the monster on Sunday the 28th - depends on things).
