We had a pretty decent ride today. Starting out from Deano’s in East Sac, five bikes headed out towards Calistoga for lunch. Clutch out time was 9:30 ish. Temps were in the 50′s with clouds and occasional sun.
- Deano, KTM 950
- Johnny, BMW R1200GS
- John, Harley FatBob
- Brandon, 2002 Custom Harley Road King
- Yours truly on my 2007 BMW R1200R
Here is the route roughly as recorded by my SPOT Tracker:
Bar-B-Q lunch at Busters in Calistoga is always good and today was no exception. Tri Tip, yum, followed by an intro to Taylor’s Refresher in St. Helena to Brandon and John who joined us from Dublin and Modesto respectively and had never been there before. Best shakes around are at Taylor’s, made from Double Rainbow ice cream.
I forgot my camera which is a shame because Brandon’s custom Road King was very cool and I would have liked to post some pictures.
At least I remembered my iPhone camera for this one. We stopped at the corners on the way back (where we ran into Steve and Stephanie, and Nathan on his new BMW K1300GT SWEEET!) and an unnamed KTM950 rider (Deano) decided to go up the side of the embankment and didn’t make it and this picture was captured.
Nuthin’ broken, no one hurt, no harm no foul. A good time was had by all.
