Just want to thank Gary856 for starting this thread over 10 years ago. I need to work on the spectacular background part. I wish I had your eye for framing a picture.

Gary856's first post below.

Below photo was take on Hwy 1, about 40 miles north of the Golden Gate. I was heading south toward San Francisco. I think that foggy area in the upper left of the photo is Jenner.

Yeah, thanks for starting this thread. I've made more posts here than in any other.

As to framing a picture, you can always crop it later before posting. I'll often do that. Usually it's because I need to get the horizon back horizontal again, though.

Today's goal, ride to the top of Trinity Mountain. I made it to the top, the bike was one corner short.

The normal route to get there is Blacks Creek Rd starting at I-84. I actually caught the road a bit earlier then found out I couldn't get through where they're fixing the freeway overpass over that road, so eight miles further east to the detour. This is some of the scenery along Blacks Creek Rd on the way up to the town of Prairie.


Quite a bit of the forest has been burned in the past few years. Other parts were green.


I'm trying to get to the top of that mountain.


This is the end of the road for all but motorcycles and quads less than 50" wide. It's another mile and a half to the top.


Got stuck a couple of times heading up the steep rocky road. This spot took two tries to get through. I run out of breath quickly above 9000 feet.


The last hairpin turn was too much for me. Oops. I parked it there and walked the rest of the way.


This is the lookout at the top. A guy lives there all summer looking for forest fires starting. That's his quad, which he takes down into Featherville once a week for supplies.


This is what the road looks like between the corner where I parked the KTM and the top.


An amazing view in all directions from the top.

I zoomed in and saw the sign saying the road is closed to motorized vehicles. Was there something else saying that motorcycles were permitted, or are you saying less than 50'' because that's how wide the gap between the gate and the post is?

Thanks, Bill (bikeama) and all. What's interesting in this thread is seeing the distinctive style of each person's photos. I see you and Scott have upped your game already.

Introducing my latest addition. The seller from San Diego rode it 600 miles to my house last Sunday. I haven't bought a bike for 2 years, so I couldn't sleep for a week due to my excitement. I've been looking for a XB12X for a quite a while, it's surreal to see one actually sitting in the garage. Can anyone recommend a good Buell mechanic in the South Bay?

I thought it was printed on the sign, but looking more closely at another photo I see that someone wrote it in magic marker. That is also likely the width of the opening.
