So, are there no tow trucks in the bay area?

I mean, I'm sure if I looked about down here in So Cal, I'd find my share of abandoned vehicles, but, I sure don't remember seeing many.

Thats the City of San Jose homeless camp - the landing aircraft fly right over it

"Welcome to San Jose"

I get disgusted everytime I have to drive by that area but it beats the homless being next to my business

The City allowed the homeless camps on the streets and along the creeks to fester because of COVID

Bay Area doing it's best impression of Mumbai, super expensive real-estate surrounded on all sides by slums. The on and off ramps around Oakland and Berkeley consistently shocking whenever I find myself over on that stretch of 80.

Eagleson, Wildcat Gulch

Went off on my own today to do some tighter roads then usual. This is on 8th Street/Sunset Peak Rd with the last view of the valley before getting into the trees.


Taking a break on Eagleson Rd near the top. This is one of five roads that cross to the east side of this mountain range. You could probably fit a Jeep through this road if you don't mind scraping the sides with a lot of branches. I couldn't even keep from hitting a few branches myself on a bike.


Made it out the other side of Eagleson, this is where Robie Creek changes to Clear Creek.


Went back up into the hills on Wildcat Gulch, which Garmin calls Warm Springs, and the USFS calls 311. This is the view looking east.


And the view looking west just a little bit later. This is a ridge between the other sets of mountains.


I was just here a week ago headed in a perpendicular direction to where I'm headed today. Just trying to get back home while still staying on as much dirt as possible. (Didn't bother taking a photo on Pearl Rd because it's not all that scenic.)

The Puig touring screen completely eliminated wind roar on my GS, so I decided to try one on the Multi too. Unfortunately, the Puig touring screen didn't do jack for wind roar on the Multi in any position. I think it has too much rake on the Multi so the jet stream comes right up to the helmet; I need to get some spacers to angle the screen more upright and to deflect the air higher over me.

Used bikes often came with cool mystery parts. I thought these windscreen brackets looked cool but didn't know who made them; they allow height and angle adjustments. While browsing for Multistrada windscreen spacer/bracket options yesterday I found that these were made by Palmer Products in the UK, and they make one for Multistrada too so I ordered a set for my Multi.

This weekend turned out to be a monumental success. The heat was something I thought was going to ruin it all, but thankfully the route avoided most of the heat by staying at elevation on Friday and sprinting to the coast on Saturday.

First day I headed out of Red Bluff to the East and did some fun backroads heading toward Burney Falls and the Lava tubes.

Cassel California:


Off of Highway 89


Day 2, was a sprint to the coast from Weed. Stewarts Springs, Scott Mountain Summit, Cecilville-Callahan, Forks of Salmon, 96, Bald Hills, 101 and some Mattole Rd. I took zero pictures of the morning except for the infamous sign at the Salmon River Road & 96 Junction:


After lunch I split from my group and decided to take my inappropriate touring bike out of the Black Sand Beach and grab a shot of Steamboat Rock. It was painful, but so worth it.

An overlook on Mattole Rd, about 5 miles from Ferndale:


Black sand beach, 20 brutal miles from Ferndale, Steamboat rock in the background. The road was absolutely brutal, it took me almost an hour one way, but I was on the totally wrong bike for a graveled, pot holed mess like Mattole Rd. Still, bucket list partially checked off:


On the way home from Fortuna I did Leggett, Branscomb, and then a sprint up 175 to the Lake County Line and back:


It turned out to be one of my best multi-day rides, especially with extremely low expectations given the insane heat forecasted.
