Winter Ride

It was a good day today. I got up at half past 7, and after pulling on some clothes headed to Saratoga for a Group Motorcycle Ride. It was lots of fun! Just a simple easy ride up Hwy 9, north on Skyline (35) to Hwy 84 out to the Coast. It was Chilly getting down to Saratoga, but the rest of the day was BEAUTIFUL! The sun was out, and blue skies.
The BMW is pretty amazing. It’s easy spread of power makes picking gears easy, and shifting a matter of avoiding annoying vibes, not lack of power. The suspension which I though might be too stiff, was fine for the roads we were on, I think the section of 35 north of Alice’s is really rough which is annoying. I managed to get almost 55 miles to the gallon for the ride so as long as I don’t flog it the bike gets good gas mileage everywhere.

About MotoCynic

I started riding motorcycles in 2006, and there is no going back. I've ridden more than 100,000 miles, most of it on a Ducati Monster, and despite setbacks and murderous BMW's I'm loving every mile.
