KLR-Zin's Zen ride

What a day.

KLR-Zin, Euphonius, and I went on a ride today that combines everything that you would want, in a nice an easy 150 mile loop. We had high speed sweepers, super twisties, single lane dirt for miles, snow covered peaks in the distance, water crossings, and everything in between. (Thanks Dave)

Dave and I dicussed doing this again in the next few weeks, and thought we would thow it out to the rest of you to join in on this GREAT ride.

We could start in Santa Rosa. Fom there a little back road trip to Cloverdale. Cloverdale to 128 west. Mountian house road to Hopland. Hopland to Old toll road (dirt) to 175. 175 to Bottlerock road. Bottlerock to Middletown, and Middletown to Calistoga for Buster's famous BBQ. And from there a little surprise trip we found today, and then back to Santa Rosa.

We were thinking a couple of weeks down the road, on a Sunday!

Any takers???

Hope weather isn't a factor.

Everybodys talking about going on a ride on Sunday. I start to get all worked up about it, then the weather report says rain. Ride is changed to Monday. My wife ask "you seem down, what's the matter." When I tell her the ride is Monday and I can't get the day off of work, she replies " you just went on a ride last week" I did not explain. I'm breaking her in gently. She thinks I got the bike to save gas.
I will be ready for the next one.

Mark,
sent you a pm- sorry to say that I can't make it on Monday. I had already set up a dirt ride annd folks had already made plans. I bought a 450 a couple of months ago and haven't had a chance to ride it yet.

I am bummed that I can't ride with you all. Should be a great day out there.

here is the map just in case:
