Really glad you found us, I totally missed Turtle rock. Sorry about that.
Yes, we were watching, hoping the cop wouldn't reach for his little ticket pad. Fortunatly he never did, good on you 10THbike!

Pix and video! Pretty cool. You guys mind controlled that CHP. He seemed pretty pissed at first, then the combined power of 11 dedicated sport riders took over and he goes "I'm just going to give you a warning." Thanks Guys!!

We figured you had a decent chance, when he didn't go right for his ticket book, when getting off his bike! Sometimes they give us grey beards a break!

Graphic proof on the street its not the bike as much as the rider. All of them were good riders but that guy on the Panigale was definitely hating life on the bumpier roads. Good meeting John and Russ*Collins and comparing 3 generations of Satos! Nice bikes guys! Gotta do this again before the really hot days start.
Lol! The young kid on the Ducati definitely was frustrated a bit. He made a comment "Man, I don't know how you guys do it. I have the fastest bike here, and I'm in the back of the line, unable to keep up". He'll get there obviously. I wouldn't be the one to give him riding tips, but I did offer him some bits on my own riding history. Told him when I was his age, I crashed just about every bike I had. The last brand new bike I owned, was a '83 Honda Interceptor. Told him after I sold that at 23 years old, I didn't ride, or have a bike for 20 years. Somehow when I finally got another bike, I was a way better rider than 20 years prior. All due to maturity I told him. So if he keeps with it, and doesn't wadd up that Ducati, he's well on his way to getting alot better. Especially if he keeps riding with the group from the other day. Lots of good, experienced Riders, to learn alot from!

Those Panigales want to be on a race track and a smooth one at that. I talked to him also when we pulled up to the Calistoga Inn. He had waved me ahead when we were on that freakin goat trail and you could see from his body language that he was hating life. The KTM and the Duke adventure bike that Scott? was riding were the smart choices for that ride. Although I absolutely love 128 from Lake Hennessey up thru Sage Canyon and back to Winters. Still a little bumpy but doable.

Yeah, I was behind John, and was getting peppered by pebbles on that stretch. Told the kid it must have killed him being on that shiny new Ducati, and hearing all those rocks ricocheting all over the place! Goat Trail, Lol! You got that right!

Anyone riding this weekend?
Come along with us!

Got another ride in the making for this Saturday June 8.
So far there's about 3 or 4 of us going. (Only 2 RC51's though. So far.)
Riding Hwy 193 and WW/Ice House Reservoir area.

btw, not restricted to RC51's, but for obvious reasons, it is the preferred bike.

Last minute, I know, sorry about that.
