    Mid week ride due to time off for good behavior at work, and the rains washed off my old favorite roads. Cambria is always on my list, so a ride was called. A bunch of lookyloo's but only one taker. A gent named Andy. He only has 2 posts, so he must be a noob. I'll mentor this one on how we do it, Busa style. :cool

    We met in San Leandro, had to lane split all the way to San Jose and got to Hollister a little later than planned. We got gas at the Shell station and all of a sudden a huge Ford F-950 beast parks right in front of my bike, and way to damn close for my liking. Time to break out a can of spinach on this dude. Then I saw the license plate, and the driver sitting in the truck with a big smile. It was John! :smilewink He saw us and stopped to say hello before he left town on his own mission.

    We stopped at Starbucks, and it was empty of fellow SBR riders, so a cold one to go and off we went.
    Highway 25 was nice, and Peachtree/Indian Valley was equally good. Very little washed out from the rains. A change of lunch plans to eat in San Miguel due to it being 12:30 an my stomach was empty.

    A quick run over 46 to Cambria for a shot of liquid energy, and a run up the coast with breakneck speeds and gas in Carmel, and guess who we see? Bill with his FJR, and somehow we were within each others reach all day, but just didn't know it. A quick BS session and gas, and off to the East Bay via Highway 1 to 17 and 880. More lane splitting for sure with the working stiffs, and a great day of riding for sure.

    This is Andy (killakeyes). Nice gentleman. Don't let the bike fool you. It didn't get that way falling over in the Starbucks parking lot. He has mad skills, and is sneaky fast. He is a member of that other forum (the one that rhymes with scarf :biggrin ), so a warm welcome by SBR is in order.

    Andy grabbed my camera and caught me eating my salad first.

    The girl who made Andy's sandwich was embarrassed that she forgot the cheese. I told her to run like hell, cause he's pissed! :lol

    Andy's helmet reminds me of a WWII plane with the teeth on it! :rad

    I told Bill to pose for the shot. He said "I already am posing, dude". :lol :lol

    A great day of riding and meeting a new riding partner was a bonus!

    That's pretty hard-core down that far and then back up 1 to East Bay.

    How was Highway 1? I almost came up yesterday, but the forecast for rain and fog nixed that plan.

    Glad to see you away from Chicken Nuggets and into some decent food. That Lipton tea swill has gotta go though....
