Mt Umunhum (again)

Took the better half up this time. :smt008 :smt007

Image


A very nice picnic was had :smt023

Image

Image



A little factoid. The red bike way down there is Rudy's. I met him last Sunday at The Junction where we chatted it up a bit. Right where I took this photo he happened to be walking up the stairs. A bit of a strange coincidence.

Thanks Evans! As long as we aren't lane splitting she does great.


The Junction today around noon? It was very crowded when I came back through on my way back but didn't stop for pics.

Image


There was a "vintage" crowd mostly Nortons. There were a few more than this. I saw them going up as I was coming down from the Observatory.

Image


The Lick Observatory (again, love this ride!!!)

Image

Guess who???

Image

Here I am trying to get the Radar Station on Mt Umunhum. You can see the little square on top of the mountain off in the distance (if you look close). I was there yesterday. Curious how many miles it would be as the crow flies???

Image

Image


Coming back. This dude won't last long unless he gets out of the road.

Image

Image


Looks like another Mines Road victim. Hope the rider is OK. This looks like it was a good place to miss a turn up there.

Thanks! It's called The Cobra Experience. The young lady that told me about it...her dad owns it and a few/some/most??? of the cars in the indoor museum.

Do you have to play the lottery to win it? I would make a great rich dude. :smt045

Love the Cobras, the car that hooked me on cars. (the RZ is the bike that hooked me on bikes, the next step is a doozy)
My wife hates bikes, but being a good sport she went for a test ride with me on an identical bike to yours a few years ago. We didn't make it a quarter mile to the main road and it was over, which in theory gets me a Goldwing closer to the Cobra.

Goldwinging the the wife is fun, probably until I get bluetooth devices. I enjoy the quiet whilst riding. :smt009


Work ride yesterday.

5 guys at 5 Guys in Tracy

The little Honda 175 is a recent rebirth. The guy rode it in from somewhere beyond Brentwood. He weighs about 210 and that little bike pulled him around quite well. Kind of made me chuckle as I was following along. The CBX has 78,000 miles on it and sounds so great. He's owned it since 79.
