Good Evening Allen,

Casual Saturday Ride North Coast

Good Evening All Wise and Omnipresent KLR riders,

Fantastic News! Cabrito, Allan S., Snakeboy66 are set to ride the North Coast. If the stars aline, Snakeboy66 will depart the Sunset at 7:30am to meet Cabrito, Kick Stands Up at 8:00am to depart from San Francisco bound for 27000 Highway 1 via the coast to meet Allan S. We then continue all the way to Fort Ross , return to 116 Russian River Gurneville to Sonoma to Hwy 112/116 to Hwy 37 back to 101 South and Home. This is a 200 mile plus ride(Maybe?) The actual distance and route will be determined by the riders present.

Lockjaw may join us, we hope that he will join us. If he reads this PM me tonight.

This is a casual ride.

Life is a ride that should be thouroughly enjoyed. ATGATT!

Great ride guys.
My GPS logged 235 miles.
Unfortunately my GoPro was not recording on either of Snakey's stunts...

I still have a smile on my face.


Thanks for lunch too!

Casual Saturday Ride......

Ride Report.....

FANTASTIC! Cabrito's GPS logged 235+ miles round trip. The ride contained twoCabrito and Snakeboy from San Francisco. We met up with Allan S.in the town of Tamalas.

From that point it was filled with Twisties, North Coast Waves and Rocks, Wind, Russian River, Dry Creek, Healdsburg.

From this point we were led (by Cabrito) on a Secret Hidden, (NOT For Beginners) easy gravel road. The start of this road was filled with views of the Alexander Valley. I showed my skill of landing on my feet after a Spiderman- like spill on an inclined corner of this dirt road (Snakeboy - twice). Mean while Allan S. took off like a bat out of hell - Whoosh! he was gone, like a pro. Great pictures - see Cabrito's post.

Rode down through Calistoga, St. Helena, stopped for lunch at Tra Vigne. The menu was: Rosemary Pizzetta with Garlic cloves and Gorganzola, Fresh, made to order Mozzarella with a little garlic infused olive oil.. Butternut Squash soup and Fish sandwiches. Desert consisted of Bread pudding and Tiramisu and Cappuccino's.

We got back on Silverado Trail south. Said good bye to Allan S. at Trancas Rd.. Cabrito and I slabbed it back to beautiful San Francisco.

A great way to celebrate Cabrito's Birthday and meet new riders. Thank you.
