    So, BillST4s finally decided to visit SBR Country. He said he was staying two days and he wanted to see what there was to see. That's not a lot of time, so the sample Platter included the Santa Cruz Mountains and a 25 loop.

    So first we meet at a popular SBR group ride jump off point: the Starbucks at the base of 9.

    Bill enjoyed a cup of coffee before riding.

    Then this guy showed up. :squid

    Kermit, who sports roundels, wanted to park with the European bikes, but it looks full over there.

    Everyone had a chance to visit. Mary ponders if she's had too much coffee.

    Up 9, up 35 to the vista point so Bill has a chance to see much of SBR Country.

    Andy was trying to convince us he could do a cherry drop off the bars.

    Tom provided extra entertainment.
    64043_1631472148712_1293894802_31713765_7796112_n.jpg

    James was ready to leave at a moment's notice.
    33844_1631472228714_1293894802_31713767_7755939_n.jpg

    And Bill had left his Duc to go take some pictures.

    We then cruised down to STP, where I succeeded in chatting with lots of people, including Mehran who joined us from there; but I completely failed at taking out my camera.

    Next, head down 84 to look at the ocean. I remembered to pull out my camera at this stop.

    He didn't forget his either. I think he might have had someone carry it up there for him, though. :thinking

    Whatever you do, don't listen to anyone who tells you to take two steps back!

    Pescadero via Stage Road for lunch, that's what!

    Nice day for a picnic.

    Curt is explaining the underlying meaning of life in SBR country.

    They have a bit of the Captain in them.

    We then left Pescadero, went down Bean Hollow, then down HWY 1 to taken in more boring ocean views to our next stop...

    Who said pie rides are slow and boring? Leslie and I RACED to get there.
    64658_1631473068735_1293894802_31713779_2229524_n.jpg

    Looking into the distance: is that where the pie is?
    40743_1631473228739_1293894802_31713781_6375546_n.jpg

    We were joined by Racenut.
    37131_1631473268740_1293894802_31713782_3104867_n.jpg

    This old guy showed up and went to talk bird photos with Bill
    64970_1631473788753_1293894802_31713786_3863041_n.jpg

    EricB swung by as well and gave Tribble a pet.

    I think AndyH was still in time out somewhere...

    Tom regressed and we found him a sippy cup so he wouldn't spill.
    65490_1631473468745_1293894802_31713783_5986995_n.jpg

    Leslie gave out hugs.
    64198_1631473708751_1293894802_31713785_2266818_n.jpg

    Erin and Tribble coordinated.
    33724_1631473908756_1293894802_31713788_4806848_n.jpg

    Bill lounged on the tractor.
    44915_1631473588748_1293894802_31713784_6535886_n.jpg

    And most importantly, Bill got to have some Gizdich pie! Now there is a happy member of the PNW contingent of SBR!

    Fast forward past our visit to BMWSCC and Thai food (where we ran into John (hearny) just by coincidence), on to the next day on 25. Part 2 of the Sample Platter.

    First some coffee in Tres Pinos at FlapJacks.
    33623_1631363265990_1293894802_31712939_5440638_n.jpg

    Some bikes down by the Pinnacles. I think that GS didn't want to get dirty. :lol
    64977_1631474388768_1293894802_31713795_1164436_n.jpg

    By the sign.
    64977_1631474388768_1293894802_31713795_1164436_n.jpg

    It's fuzzy, but I do believe that sticker might bear a resemblance to those Pinnacles....
    44258_1631474348767_1293894802_31713794_5061403_n.jpg

    Pinnacles!
    39609_1631474188763_1293894802_31713792_7385944_n.jpg

    It was on my way out from the Pinnacles that I got stung by a bee on my throat. When I went to see if the dying bee was still in my suit, a yellow jacket flew out. Insects R Us. :eek

    There are George and Curt on the bridge on Loanoak.

    We headed into King City where we ate light in anticipation of BBQ...

    picture.jpg

    Then we went up to try and visit Fred and Neal at HH, but only Neal was there. Andy tried one of these out...

    picture.jpg
    And yes, I licked the lens so King :squid could tell me to clean it. I like it when he does that. :tongue

    After a brief coffee stop, we headed towards Aptos and on the way there, my front tire went flat. I knew this when my handle bars started going from side to side and steering became more difficult. I signaled, slowed, and pulled to the side of the road. Slime didn't work and the tire just wasn't holding air. George, Bill, and I got a trailer and I hauled my bike home, making us quite late for BBQ.

    Shayne was not a happy camper having to wait to eat his dinner.

    Bill did not seem to mind, though.

    Bill left SBR Country this morning and arrived in Medford, OR early this evening. He wanted everyone to know that this time he left California in one piece and that he had a great time.

    Thank you all for coming out and helping to make Bill's ride down to SBR country fun! :clapping

    Bill looks like he's thinking... "If I carefully slip out back, I can be miles away before anyone notices!"
