Either their is something you are not telling me about your riding, or other athletic history, or you have that gift of natural inclination for this sport riding stuff...
What do you mean a little chat...you need some pointers Ken...haha. I haven't had a good spirited ride with anyone but myself in about 18 months. If you haven't rode Old San Jose in the Santa Cruz/Capitola area...come out and check it out Ken. It's not Mines, but it's a good road...you would like it. Sorry to hijack the thread Jackie.

Were there some close calls or sketchy moves? I'm just curious about the comments from you and Ken.

East Bay Mike, who lives in the south bay, and I, decided to meet up and ride over Hamilton and out Mines, then slabbed it down 580 to Redwood. I'll go almost anywhere to ride with good folks I haven't been on Redwood, to the wall, or any of the east bay stuff, since riding in what, 2007 or 8 with SpeedyCorky and Christian. Redwood was either patchy damp or just plain wet, so we hightailed it down to Calaveras, Felter and Sierra for the end of the ride.

Quite the contrary. He rides quite well, for a self professed newb, and stayed within himself all day. I watch my mirrors a lot, especially when riding with folks I don't know, looking for following riders blowing corners, winding up in the other lane and such, but the whole day was drama free...Finished up the day with a New York strip steak, seared on cast iron, oven finished to a perfect medium rare, with Yukon gold potato and green beans in a garlic white wine cream sauce, and a BV Napa Cabernet. Vacation day well spent!

Possible snacks later.

Happy Holidays everyone!!!

Good to meet you Michael.

Oh for sure, I was humbled by Ken in a good way. But I stuck to my limits pretty much. I had a couple semi-close calls where I lost focus and almost went off the side of the shoulder when on Mines. First time riding with someone so I was a little excited.

Thatís kind of you, Ken. I just wanted to be upfront and state that I have limited experience and no extra training, so not to expect too much out of me. Letís face it, the Tuono can make any half-way decent rider into something even better. I got into motorcycling 2 1/2 years ago but did ride a bicycle with no training wheels at age 2, so I have healthy coordination I suppose.

Iíll probably get some training and go racing eventually, once this damn pandemic is over.

Oh no, I was thinking of some of the damp spots and some debris and Mike riding on Supercorsas in upper 50 degree weather.
