    Re: Best Day Ever. A Pashnit Motorcycle Tour.

    We call it The Grand Tour.

    Where everything is Grand. As in monumental. The view. The roads. The food. The lodging. Tall order.

    Well then ride along...

    We had a special treat on this ride. As in we had Kevin with us who's a videographer and filmmaker. We'd be shooting film all weekend using GoPro HD's and constantly experimenting with angles and shots.

    The goal is a new film about the Pashnit Tours and also the capabilities of the GoPro HD.

    We should have the film ready by the within 2-3 months and debuted at the International Motorcycle Show.

    So a special thanks to 4theRiders.com

    Perched on a cliff on the central California coast, 50 miles south of San Francisco, the 115-foot Pigeon Point Lighthouse, one of the tallest lighthouses in America, has been guiding mariners since 1872. Its five-wick lard oil lamp, and first-order Fresnel lens, comprised of 1,008 prisms, was first lit at sunset, November 15, 1872. The lens stands 16 feet tall, 6 feet in diameter, and weighs 8,000 pounds. It sits in a lantern room that had been constructed at the Lighthouse Service's general depot in New York before being shipped around the Horn. Although the original Fresnel lens is no longer in use, the lighthouse is still an active U.S. Coast Guard aid to navigation using a 24 inch Aero Beacon.

    And yes, two different cameras I'm using.

    The GoPro HD takes really cool photography.

    A pleasure having Joe with us again. His 3rd Pashnit Tour already. Hana who came from Canada. Her 2nd already.

    And Marco, who is an Italian from Munich, Germany here in the USA working on his post-doctorate if I've got that right.

    Astronomy, Particle Physics, you know. Typical stuff.

    The view near the top of Nacimiento Rd. The temps climbed 20+ degrees coming out of the fog. Hot.
