here's a pic taken from video of Derstuka on Old Creek Rd.
And another of Reg and i dice'ing it up on HWY 41
WELL,..... SHIT ! Im out for today. I just went out to give my bike a once over before coming up,..... and found 10#'s of air pressure in the back tire. Guess that explains why i was thinking my suspension "just didn't feel right" yesturday. DAMMIT ! This Metzler is toast now, its got a nail and half a dozen little holes about every 2" like i ran over a strip of nails or something. .....
Tori, That sounds like a awesome time, i hope i can make it for the next get together ,
Reg, take some excedrin and post those pics please im on the edge of my set, Im bumming
Here's Reg and I enjoying Hwy 41 towards Morro Bay

Breakfast at Hoover's
ok starting with the guy closest to camera then clockwise, gray/green shirt Derstuka, green VFR t-shirt Reg, gray shirt behind me Terri my wife, plaid longsleeves Mike, black and gray SLOVFR, black shirt waving Tori, next to him peeking above someone is XXfirefighter, next to him glasses black hat is SLOav8r, next gray shirt RMCOBB, then gray shirt orage hat, my bro-in-law Don.
this crazy guy is XXfirefighter AKA Rich, he is roomies with SLOav8r AKA Dan.
does anyone want to claim the above pic? hehe
note the temp all your northwest guys and this is in morro bay which is known for alwasy being foggy and cool
Above is Derstuka AKA Jason talking to Norcalboy AKA Ron about the white bike (Ron is closer to camera)
boys playin in garage...
hwy 1 getting ready to go to old creek rd where some of the earlier pics came from
Big guy is background is XXfirefighter again, going clockwise from him in gray shirt is my wife Terri, orange hat her brother Donnie, red jacket is Mike (friend from work FZ6) next with the cut off face is either SLOVFR or Derstuka, brown shirt is Allison, SLOVFRs girlfriend so the cut off guy is probably SLOVFR but there was a lot of alcohol at the party so no guarantees, next with back to cam in blue is SilverSurfer AKA Wayne, and then in black sitting beside him is Tori aka Tori and next to him in Red is Tony I think (he rides an Aprilia but he used to have a VFR which he said he loved but he says the Aprilia is on a whole other level.
firepit hang time...
same people from different angle and you can see JTC aka Josh from this angle he's wearing alpinestars shirt...
ok, that's it for now I think... there are more on my phone, though.... including some from riding back north with norcalboy and silversurfer today...
Here's another video. Nothing special. Its actually the first part to the video i posted above. I was in the back of the pack (yawn) and wanted to liven up the footage by working my way thru the pack and get some action running the curves....

This is the famous hwy 229. Certainly not very good footage of it but since nobody is posting their pics or vids, i'll do what i can to entertain.... cough*reg*brian*cough
Im not terribly familliar with this road, so i was going at a fairly safe pace, then we got caught in "traffic" :biggrin:

reg, i screed up by not going and im bummed, now can you please put some names to each of the faces for me ? thanks and im happy that everyone had a safe and fun time, down right cool
Nice footage and pics guys. Looks like a lot of fun. Glad everyone had a good time and stayed safe.
what are you talkin bout? there are like 6 photos above this video? I have a few more on my phone but my slot is still not working on the comp... can you read a microSD?
on a side note: RW, I hear you may be movin back to cali before too long? Is that a wicked rumour or is there some truth to that? I can offer a suggestion if you like to ride year round and don't want to pay bay area or LA area prices and like to be able to get out of town in less than 10 minutes... Oh and did I mention year round riding on decent roads? :biggrin:
Did anyone get a picture of Norcal's pretty white bike actually being ridden? I keep seeing pictures of it in garages, but not on the highway. Does he have white leathers too? or just the white patent-leather belt and wristwatch band (like one of my son's friends who swears it is a chick magnet intead of a dude magnet)
I nominate Tori for videographer of the day. Perhaps you need a blue Power Ranger outfit instead of the red for your successful technology usage.
Yes, i can read a MicroSD card. But you can just email them to yourself from your phone. Do it like your sending a text but instead of a phone number, put in your email address.
Here's the last video i have from this weekend.
Old Creek Road from Morro Bay inland.
Starting pretty much near the rear of the pack,... going past Derstuka, and then on to rail with XXfirefighterXX (Rich) on the big BMW. That was a blast !

I found my cord for the phone and put a piece of tape on it that says what its for so no one moves it... The other pics are coming up in just a few...
Pics and more pics
For those of you who could not make it, too bad. It was a great time even with our er mishaps. Most everyone kept the shiny side up and there was plenty of food for everyone. You have seen day one and day two pics, now day 3 pics are coming up after one more from day 2...
Here's a break at morro bay to wait for Tony on his aprilia and let Tori work on his brakes again...
white shirt RMCOBB, black shirt Tori, Red helmet my friend Royson on a mint Fazer that he bought new and it has less than 6k miles!
Now, day 3... These are NorCalBoy, SilverSurfer800 and your host Reg71...
White jacket white bike is Norcalboy...
left is SilverSurfer800 right is Norcalboy, hiding behind the camera hanging off a cliff like a billiegoat is Reg...
Silversurfer and Norcalboy is action while I man the cam...
I am sure there is plenty more to come as SS was running video quite a bit including some of our water crossing, I think. We are all ready SS, bring it on!
Shots from the Pozo Saloon. Little crunched for time so I'll try to caption better later:
left RMCOBB right Reg71
left SLOav8r right Derstuka
