Sten's Yamaha Road Star, just an absolutely beautiful bike.



Probably my favorite picture of the entire weekend of the 300 photos I shot.

Every once in a great while you find an outstanding rider that melds well with your riding style. I'd never met Jeff before but we spent the weekend as if our bikes were glued together.

The Hayabusa and the Tuono.

While we were standing there kickin' tires and taking in the ocean- these pulled in.

Just absolutely beautiful Billy Lane Motorcycle. Both these riders had ridden all the down to California from Quebec. If you think Harley riders don't ride- then these two would quickly shatter any stereotype you might have. And both bikes were immaculate! Half their trip was probably cleaning the bikes.



Always amazing how bikers from any walk of life riding any type of bike can be instantly like old friends.

The owner (yes, that's him), relayed that this bike was a gift to him from his girlfriend. We all talked for quite a while before setting off again. This bike has a built in air compressor, the switch you can see on this side of the motor that raises and lowers the rear.




In Fort Bragg while getting gas, Tim asked one of the locals for a good place ot eat- head down below the bridge was the reply. So we did Captain Flinn's. Fresher than fresh fish since the ocean is so close, you can jump into it from the restaurant. This small inlet always reminds me of "Overboard"- that movie with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, parts of it were filmed in Fort Bragg and the bridge is used as a backdrop.

After baskets of Fish & Chips, laid down some rubber and made for Stewarts Point. We hadn't seen a cop practically the entire weekend, but as Jeff and I pulled in there he was, sitting on the porch chatting away. Just where we want him!

Stewarts Point store, circa 1868.

Stewarts Point Skaggs Spring Road is but another famous road in these parts, called The Holy Grail by that Pashnit guy. It has a section of glassy smooth wide pavement on up-down hill capable of unprintable speeds. Too bad the speed limit is 35 mph. Sure.



Fortunately, no cows. Last time through here, had a cow running down the road in front of me looking over his shoulder going "Oh crap!" No really, even caught that on video.

The western portion is goat trail tossing and heaving about, mostly one lane with some occaisional fantastic views across the coastal mountains.

Riders on Skaggs



This is at the halfway point, and where motorcyclists stop to congregate. In the middle of the road is a happy face burned into the road with someones back tire. Pretty much sums this road up!

Bridge on Skaggs. The bridge Sort of reminds you of Bungee Jumping, doesn't it.



Afterwards it was off for the 3 hour ride home while everyone scattered in all directions. Jeff rode all the way back to Los Angeles. Pounded down 1000 miles in 3 days and 300+ photographs. Can't wait till the next ride.

Hope you enjoyed the ride! Heading up here again Sept 17- if you want to go, let me know!
