A Fun Ride This Weekend

I had a fun little ride this past weekend: clicky

The ride took me on some of the best roads in California. What a hoot! Ride report to follow since I just got off the bike an hour ago and have to catch up on stuff here at home.

Total trip: 1972.7 miles
Return trip:
Depart San Jose @ 04:05 this morning
Return time: 10:51
Moving: 9:45
Stopped: 1:04
Return Miles: 664.5
Moving Avg: 68.2
Overall Avg: 61.2
Cost? Priceless!
PS: I love the Aux Tank! One fillup on the way down and back.
