    May have seen this face before Billie

    And the GS with the PIAA's, 11 gallon tank and 17 inch wheels.

    Billie is a season pass holder with Pashnit Tours and can go on as many tours as he'd like.

    He typically calls me monday and says, got room?

    Ayumi was joined by her husband... Kevin.

    Our Pashnit Newlyweds, who've only been married something like 6 months and met via the Pashnit Tours.

    Ayumi has been caught on film a couple times on Pashnit Tours. One of my favorite shots of her on the Central Cal Pashnit Tour back in 2005.

    Can typically be found staring into the screen on his camera.

    Re: From the Saddle. Pashnit Tours heads to NorCal.

    You can describe what it's like to ride through coastal fog on a bike, but hard to really capture it.

    What you can't see in this pic, is to the left, it's straight down about a 1000 feet.

    Fortunately, with coastal fog, at least you can ride above it.

    At right beneath that fog is the Pacific Ocean.

    Ayumi atop Bolinas Ridge.

    One of my all time favorite spots in the Bay Area.

    The requisite Pashnit flower shot. Rule is you've got to shoot some pics of flowers, and of your food.

    Although no idea how that got started.

    See the bug?
