Bat Signal Post Mortem

Big thanks to everyone that came out today. There were times today were it actually felt like that Japanese video with all the two strokes zooming around the hills. We had folks from SF, Concord, Mt. Diablo, and the South Bay. Charlie did an awesome job leading us around the hills, and taking us on laps of interesting roads. Joseph thanks for leading us through Palomeras, and showing off that Sexy Aprilia! Big thanks to Greg for being the Super Hero (again!).

Next up:
Bats Fly MotoGP! Friday July 27th
Follow the Moon--Lughnasadh Wednesday August 1st
North Bay Ride Sunday August 12th
SC Mountains Ride Sunday August 26th
Follow the Moon--Festival of Souls Friday August 31st

Default Thanks Rob for posting the ride!

It was nice meeting everyone today. Sorry i had to cut out earlier than planned since I was hoping to ride longer with the group. I thought we would have hit some more of the roads in the Redwood area prior to heading back down towards the South Bay, but I'm sure there will be next time.

It seems like there's a lot i need to learn about two strokes after seeing all the cool bikes today. =)

Thanks Rob for posting the ride.
Joseph

Very nice, wish I'd been there.

All small-bores... must've sounded like a lot of large, angry bees trapped in a soda can.
