Ride smart, make good decisions, and keep the rubber side down.
Glad to hear your experience has been good so far. I was hoping to ride up the coast to Monterey this weekend, but have to work Saturday. Forza Ducati!Well, I made it to my hotel in Salinas. The pacific coast highway is absolutely incredible, worth the trip just for the ride. I promise, i'll take pictures from the island over the next couple of days. How do i post them here, not just the thumbnail like i did above? Had my first oil change from Marin Speed Shop, in and out in about an hour, no complaints. Also had my shift lever lowered a little, as i was getting a lot of false neutrals. I am kind of looking forward to not having a long day in the saddle tomorrow, i'm tall and my legs are kind of sore. I can't complain though, one of the guys i was riding with is on an 1198, his wrists must be killing him.
Thanks for the tip, i def saw a sign for that, will check it out.I meant to mention - while you're down there you should check out Laureless Grade Drive, it's a neat little road across the street from Laguna Seca, and maybe 1/2 mile East on 68. It's where the locals go to have fun, and where I got some of my best lessons when I was learning how to ride.
A fine day for Ducati fans at Laguna Seca. Here's hoping Chaz can pull off the double tomorrow!
No apologies necessary. Sharing is caring!Sorry for the double post,but i forgot one...
Have a great ride north. If you haven't already hit the road, I suggest the 101 to the 85 west, to the 280 north, which ends and dumps onto 19th Ave. thru SF to the Golden Gate. Much better than staying on the 101 and the long slog through downtown.Well, i start my trip back up to the pnw this morning. I'm thinking im going to take the slab up to petaluma, then cut over to rt 1, that road was too much fun!!! Ducati isand was a lot of fun. I met some cool people, actually got a chance to sit and eat lunch with a bunch of Ducati NA guys, they have lots of good advice to offer on bikes, and you can tell they are all enthusiastic about riding motorcycles. Too bad sundays race turned out to be a kawi parade, but i think they were pretty pissed to get beat on saturday. The ducs are down on power compared to some of the other bikes, but Chaz put in a h3ll of a ride, you can tell he really wanted it. Have to think his injuries held him back a little on Sunday. Anyway, one more picture, most important of the weekend.
