Thumbs up Good Day Today

After a crappier than usual week (was sick, and then work was sucking like a chest wound), I got up this morning and decided to get a little ride in to clear my head and put my attitude right with the world before going to see my family. I headed out around 9 a.m. and went up into the Santa Cruz Mountains on Highway 9, and then took Skyline/35 over to SkyLonda. Perfectly clear and and 68 degrees on the ridge, a really rare occasion at that time of day anytime of the year! Had some breakfast at Alice's Restaurant with the loads of other 2 wheel minded folks, and then took off down Highway 84. Some 1 way controlled traffic, but that allowed me to get past the 30 Mustangs clogging up the hill, and then it was clear and quick sailing almost all the way to the coast. Picked up Stage Rd at San Gregorio and took it to Pescadero, then went out towards Butano Park and took Gazos Creek Rd. back to the Coast Highway. Came back up to 84 and went up the mountain (it's my favorite road anywhere so I was fine riding it twice ), then down the other side of 84 to my brother's house. Spent the afternoon hanging with the family watching football and visiting. Came home and just watched the World SuperBike races and MotoGP race and watched both championships get wrapped up. Congrats to Ben and Valentino!! Overall a pretty awesome day!

Re: Good Day Today

I hate you. There is no 84 anywhere around here. Not even the number, much less the road.

Re: Good Day Today

Y'all need to live next door to Dick. OK, maybe not next door, but around Boerne, Leakey, Fredricksburg, there's some nice hills, twisties, & plenty of fresh air. I know Stevie took Bones on 1431 comin' back from the Mason RTE in the spring. Hate to see you have to travel 200 miles just to find a bend in the road, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
