Mid-Week Rides: North Bay Ride

It only seems like forever since the last mid week ride.
There were a few over the last 5 months, but apparently no one took pictures or wrote a report. Vacations and BMW national rallyes have been known to get in the way, too. But that is over and done with.

WWWobble took some pictures
Dick took somg pictures, too

Perhaps most notable were the non-attendees… Let’s see, Dick Zunkel, Bob Burns (aka Major Wobble), Larry Williams and yours truly! Everyone was late for breakfast! That Wobble whimp was the first into the restaurant parking lot, but he hadn’t gassed-up, a mere 20 minutes late. We rode up to the N. end of Healdsburg and turned for a stop at the fish hatchery (Steelhead) below the dam at Lake Sonoma. We took a whirl-wind tour where I was able to score points with the lady of the house - this by purchasing a lady-bug ring! Expensive! Set me back a whole dollar…

Today’s ride didn’t cover more’n about 210 miles - Pacifica to Pacifica, but it WAS scenic and mostly new roads for both Larry & Dick. This made it worthwhile in its own right… George Ruper should remember some of this…wasn’t as dry then though…

We took him into this country…on the motorcycle depicted here. (Dick’s Honda Goldwing is in the shop so why not lend-out a mount?

He brought up the rear and was trolling for bees, quite successfully was his lament.

off of Tin Barn and onto Kings Ridge, the highpoint for this ride. Funny looking Beemer, no?

It's suspected that he just appears 'slow'...

Truth is he probably stops to polish the chrome after every third turn!
