For the last ride of the season, several riders joined our tour headed for a region of California known for its wide open spaces, very few people, and thrilling mountian vistas.
Ayumi enjoyed herself so much on the previous tour of Northern California
, she quickly signed up for the next ride- that of Central Coastal California. Ayumi has spent the last few years in the United States and works as a OB/GYN Nurse in the Bay Area. Formerly, in Japan, she worked as a midwife for some years. Her GSXR1000 was only a few months old, and a rolling example of a marvel of modern engineering. For Ayumi, the bike just fit her well, and she cut another notch into her belt of various GSXR Suzuki's she's owned over the years.
Frank has ridden on 3 different Pashnit Tours this year. I think that's what you might call a very satisfied customer. Frank is a Financial Analyst, has done a track day or two, and came once more on the venerable Yamaha R1. A heartstopping georgeous machine, I spent another weekend using it as a photographic subject trying to get that perfect photo.
