Solo ride - Stage Road

Wow, it was a fun road. A bit scary - single width super twisty road next to cliff without guardrail - but I love it! Will do that again!

Sunday ride to Point Reyes Station

Finally the group had some warm sun light at Point Reyes station - it was a cold, wet, and foggy morning ride along HW1...

BTW, the new set of mirrors work great - super clear images under high speed - I mean, up to 80mph. There is not way on earth anyone can see anything on a motorcycle mirrors above 80mph on a L-twins motorcycle - I am just happy that I have a set of cool looking mirrors that work!

Over look the Pacific ocean...

It was one of the best solo ride I ever have! The weather was great and there was no traffic - no car miles in front of me, and the car behind never able to catch up with me on the road... feel like the while HW 1 was all mine!

Been a long while since I blog anything about my bike - everything is fine and hopefully keep in this way. Recently lost my job and I have a a lot of time now - it is time to clean up the bike. First area I need to work on is the reservoirs - the stock reservoirs is functional but look cheap, and the plastic discolors through time. So I decided to give Rizoma a try. The quality is super; but of cause, it cost 10 times more than the stock plastic reservoirs... took me 2 hrs to replace both, and I replace the tube too....
