Fall color ride Wine country

It's fall, the leaves are changing, and it's time to ride!

November 22nd, 9.30am departure from my house. Back road ride to Cloverdale. Pick up KLR-Zin. Head North to Geyser Road. Geyser Road to 128. 128 through the Alexander Valley to Ida Clayton Road. Ida Clayton to Middletown. Calistoga road to Calistoga, Lunch break at Buster's BBQ. Calistoga to Rutherford. Trinity Road to Sonoma. And Hwy 12 back to my place. I will try to put a map up for you all. This should be a spectacular ride (and some dirt roads too!)

I am DOWN. But do we have to start at 8? Jesus.

I do have to ride up there you know. When we did the city ride we started at a civilized 10 am.

AKA JD Mader or you can call me "Dan" just not early for dinner.

I'm in. Looking forward to the company and the beautiful scenery. Looks like we might see some darkness. Mark did you get a new headlight bulb yet? Let me know because I might be placing an order with Twisted Throttle. They sell the PIAA. You might be able to get a better deal through Matt.

I did a US-50, Pollock Pines, Sly Park, Mormon Immigrant Trail, Silver Fork Road, Strawberry Lodge, ride earlier ths week and the Fall colors were very nice. The ride to the coast should be even better.

My weekend will begin on Friday leaving Sacramento around Noon to find my way to the Int'l Motorcycle Show in San Mateo (4:30p-9:00p) with a night over (any ideas where to stay) then back to the IMS on Saturday for a half day (9:30p-2:00p). Then a Coast ride (130 miles) up to River Road then Santa Rosa for the night with the Builders.

Ps - can't believe the forum advertisement was for North Carolina Wines. How dare they ;^)

I'm in as well. I can meet you guys anywhere- I certainly don't mind backtracking. I may have to peel a bit early depending on how the day goes. My boys will be without supervision after 3:00 and it is only a short matter of time before things get a bit "Lord of the Flies. So, that said, I will try to be home 5'ish with the conch before anyone is killed.

Sucks to your asmar, Dave. (I hope you've read Lord of the flies fairly recently)

Lockjaw,
I have not read that recently, but I am glad to ignorantly throw out that quote as though I had. Drink a 40 for Piggy...
