Cool Photos because it happened!

The ride got a bit of a late start today with multiple delays through out--sorting pains from a long winter. ;P

After a bit of sorting we got to the ride. I have to say looking back over my shoulder and seeing a group of strokers is one awesome site. ;P

This was a special ride because Ari, AJ, and Marcus--the original Bats--were all on the ride, and while he still rides regularly it was also AJ's first ride out this year. Plus Paz was joining us again on an RS for the first time in around two years. Greg, Gianluca, Bryan, and I filled out the rest of the ranks.

The route included some old favorites, some recently new favorites, and some roads the Bats hadn't previously enjoyed. I think it's going to be a while before we get another ride that was as well matched as this one. It may have taken us some time to get things started, however once on the road the Bats were flying. : )

The Little Chihuahua turned out to be a place of great food and much eye candy. We'll have to stop there again.

Thanks to everyone that made it out and helped get these bikes on the road. : ) It was an awesome ride.

Get ready for the next one on Sunday the 27th for the Bats Memorial Day Two Stroke Celebration.



Lets get to the photos...

Here's the Phenix RS that I picked up from MT Mike. In little over a week from its explosion it was back on the road and then this weekend it made its return to street riding.



Notice the Malossi stickers have been gone-ifide. :P



The line up at Stones Town. Ari's Honda Derbi, Marcus's Yammie, Greg's Super Motard Derbi, my Black GPR Derbi, the Phenix, and Gianluca's super sweet RS from the clouds.















We regrouped at AJ's to do some post KSU pre-ride wrenching.





Brand new carbs need some tweaking.







In the Park making a few more adjustments.







Stopping to enjoy the view in the Headlands.









Bryan made to part of the ride on his MB85.





The Phenix RS in Marin serving up some crow for the Corkinator.















Post Headlands another stop for some mini-fixing.







A quick stop at the 7/11 for some snacks.





It seems that running without an airbox tends to require more fuel stops.



There was a running race was going on at HWY1 and Muir Woods--here's one getting all bent out of shape because we are taking photos of our bikes! With an angry face like that she's probably damn lonely. :P





We did much blasting through the next set of roads, without much video either! We stopped at Bolinis Fairfax just before the Gravity Race.





Bottom of the B/F hill on the Alpine Lake Dam bridge.















Moar Gas!

Thanks guys for the awesome ride. Rob did an amazing job with the route and waiting at each turn to make sure no bat was left behind. The weather was great and it was nice to meet some of the members.



Hey guys I think I need some gas!
