Day ride on Saturday 11/16/13 and meetup for new member?

Postby tjrob2000 » Tue Nov 12, 2013 7:46 pm

I'm looking to meetup with some of the folks here and get the beemer out on some of the roads in the area. We moved up to Rocklin from Santa Cruz last year, but we've not gotten out in the area much in that time. I've been commuting to the bay area on my '96 R1100RT (recent purchase), but have not gotten out on the local twisties (other than 49 so I'd like to find other roads). My wife may join (depends on her back) and if so the ride would need to be below moderate speed (she likes to drive pretty fast, but as a passenger prefers things slower - gets car sick, but fortunately not bike sick - yet :) ). If it's just me we can go moderate to a bit faster. I'm still learning this bike and want to keep it in the skill zone.

I would join the dinner ride, but I get home very late and I don't see a saturday ride for this weekend on the calendar. Anyone want to join and show me around here a bit? :mrgreen:

Tom,

You're just in luck, Mike Robles and myself were planning on riding this Saturday down to Priest Grade and you are welcome to join. Send me a PM and we'll set something up. Here's the route we'll probably take http://www.rcb.org/sites/default/files/ ... tation.pdf

Rick,

Do you start with breakfast at Susie's? It would be early for my wife to join so if I decide to go it will be just me. I'll let ya know.

Since Magic Mike lives across the street from me here in Rocklin, we usually just take off from the house. Let me know, you're welcome to tag along.

Just wanted the thank Magic Mike and Rocklin Rick for the ride invite saturday. It was good fun and I got to see some roads I hadn't been on. Didn't know there was a Pardee dam and roller coaster roads like that! Whee! :mrgreen: Anyway, it was good to meet Mike and Rick as well as Ray (picked him up along the way). Only sorry I had to cut out at Copperopolis and head back home. Perhaps next ride I'll get to do the whole route.

Was nice meeting you Sat. Tom. You missed some great roads. Priest Grade is not to be missed. Priest Grade cafe doesn't suck either. Next time, schedule the WHOLE day. See ya at the Dec. club meeting.

Mike,

I would've gone the whole way normally, but a distracting pain in my jaw down to my neck, plus being tired from lack of sleep the week before are the only reasons I didn't. I will plan on the whole ride next time! I did enjoy those roller coaster hills though! That was fun, but the wife never would have made it without me slowing to a crawl. :lol:
