Here are the Photos I took on my ride to the rally. Info about the rally here.
Second Saturday has become a Scaramento Midtown tradition. Galleries, restaurants, kisoks. My wife Chris and I walk about, get dinner and hang around. I always bring my camera. It was 41 degrees last night so we bundled up like Nanook of the North and headed out. We found parking mid block on 20th between J and K. This was so astonishing, I asked a policeman if it was legal to park there, as surely someone else would have already grabbed the spot.
My local Photography Meet-up did a photo shoot at the California State Capital on Wednesday. We wandered around the building shooting at random. Here are a few of the many photos taken. (click to enlarge except xmas tree pic).
My motorcycle friends Scott and Jessica live near the Mather Airport, formerly Mather AFB. Saturday they hosted their second annual Air Show Bar-b-que. Chris and I enjoyed a nice warm sunny afternoon, good friends, good food and great hospitality. Thanks Scott and Jessica. The planes from the Mather Air Show fly right over their house making some pretty nice photos possible. Enjoy!
Today we ride! The F800GS is loaded, we are out of here. See you at the BMW National rally in Redmond, Oregon (July 15-18 2010).
Our trip will take us from Sacramento CA through Lava Beds National Monument with one night of camping at Indian Wells campground, and then on to the rally site. The plan is to enter Lava Beds from the south on a partially paved/dirt road. We will also be camping at the rally.
More than 6000 riders are expected. Wow, now that’s a traffic jam. See you there!
