Welcome me to Sacramento

I would like to meet new SAC peeps and join up with old friends. I have room for about 4 others this number may change if my normal riding partners can't make it.

Route? Well maybe a local might want to tour guide???
If not I have some ideas.

We have a pool for cooling off after the ride.

What do you all think?
The ride took place as called by Eric. As people started to arrive to the meeting place, here comes our host to greet everyone and give us some unexpected news.

Below: Eric leading our pre-ride in prayer. Psssssst... Hey Larry, bow your head please.

Eric/MegabyteBigE, Eaton/ducmonster, Larry/Jester, John/Fastfar



It turns out that Eric had been on-call with his job and was up all night and the previous night too with the exception of 6 hours sleep, combined, so our host had to bail on the ride part of his homecoming party.
Taking the helm as " Fahrt Captian " was Jim/Kluts who planned the route(s) and led us over some of the finest, yet varied, roads this area has to offer.
Thank you Jim... It was a pleasure to ride with you again. You set a good pace and the short cut back to Erics saved the day.

The ride consisted of some familiar faces and some new, a variety of bikes and riders yet everyone had a good time and made it back to port safe and sound after a good day of riding, lunch and of course the normal BS'ing.
I only have a few shots but hopefully others will add some of their own too.
More Pics ... Even more Pics!... And yet more pics

The meet up.





On the fly.





Regrouping.

... And of course the mandatory food shots from Markleeville.





And one shot of the Trusty STeed.



After the ride it was off to Erics for the post-ride festivities which included some of the best tri-tip I have had with all the goodies to compliment it, some cool effervescent beverage, topped off with some crazy yet very nice folks who made me feel very welcome. I had a great time.
Thank you Eric and Family for the hospitality and welcome to Sacramento Muh Friend!

Made it home from Sacramento at about 4:30 this afternoon. Tired. Time for a shower, food and sleep. Details later.

Re: Welcome me to Sacramento

Your ride inspired me. I got time off on Sunday and the wife had to work so I took my new bike up to Markleeville, what a great day.

Some day I hope my schedule will slow down so I might be able to meet and ride with some of you.

Thanks for great report and photos.
