North Country 1000 - 7/31-8/1 2004

So, since no one else has posted photos and I am very bored waiting for 70+MB of onboard video to load to my server, here are some (bad) pics taken through my cracked and scuffed windscreen.

See this thread for ride details, route, and cast of characters.

We start on Highway One in Marin. Cold, wet and misty....

hwy 1/101 north of Legget. Truly a great stretch of road - and our first bit of sunlight for the day.

Taking a short break. We tended to get off the bikes at 50-70 mile intervals. Usually 1-2 breaks between gas stops. We had a few bikes (and riders ) with low range.

Our lovely hotel - Day's Inn Red Bluff.

Sane_Man actually rolled his busa into his bathroom for the night. Talk about lack of trust in the locals.

Hyperlite and I brought locks for our bikes, but we were so tired, never got around to setting them up. And since I had assumed he'd want to move the yzf around, I didn't even set my steering lock.

I was really impressed with these rocks on Highway 49 just south of Downieville. Had to get a pic - but this does their grandeur no justice.

Aaaaaand that's all for my pics. Didn't take many because I knew they wouldn't come out that well between the glare and the crappy windscreen.

Videos below are ~8MB each. I highly recommend muting or turning down the volume before viewing. Posted in chronological order. Let me know if there are any problems. Enjoy!

Video links will be in this post once they upload. 48% done as of this post time. I may end up linking them up tomorrow morning.
Thanks for posting the pics. It's not always the quality of the pics, it that they jog the quality of the memory. They're cool in there own distorted way.

Where's the pic of the Busa in the bathroom?

Did anyone see this sign on our Hwy 36 stop? Were we too giddy over just what we rode and what we were to going to ride to notice??!

Name:
That's it folks! The new tank mount I bought the week before doesn't fit - I tried fitting it the day before . So, no pics while riding...

Few pics I took...

1. Breakfast stop.
Hyperlite, rocketbunny, NTinSR, Yamalude, Bearlout, ???, dlcarbon



2. thirdwaver's spanking new ST1300. Beautiful cruise ship!



3. Our fearless leader Deeter with his excellent Yamaha YZFR1ST - some how, Phoenix got into the pic as well


4. Seated behind Phoenix is "The Norcal Dictionary" - a very interesting character we met during Lunch on Day 1. In line:
My Speed Triple (Phoenix), Deeter's YZFR1ST, Sane_Man's 40th Anniversary Busa, Hyperlite's F4iST, RocketBunny's YZF600R, thirdwaver's ST1300. Behind these is NTinSR's ST2.


5. This pretty much sums of what I saw vanishing into the distance - the rear of Tom's wonderful new 1000RR - great bike :rad


6. Nate joined us for a brief stint with his Tiger on day 2. He quit after lunch to ride his own ride...


7. Parting shot - and we still had another 2 hours to go...this is my attempt @ joining Life

Well I finally got around to resizing my picture's. I didn't get any at the start of the ride because I forgot to install my batteries when I packed my camera.

Here was our first stop in Bodega Bay. It was misty and overcast so about four riders bailed.

I knew it was going to be an interesting trip because we wasted no time in breaking the rules.
