Ride Report #9

Last Friday, my employer hosted it’s annual picnic at Saratoga Springs, located in the hills of Saratoga.

If you know the Bay Area, any destination near Highway 9 is essentially an invitation to ride.

I took the freeway on my way there. Dumbarton Bridge – 101 – 85. The ride was mostly uneventful, except for a mildly odd feeling on Highway 85. This freeway has a grooved concrete pavement (for wet traction) but this seems to cause the motorcycle to drift. I loosened my grip on the handle bars and this definitely helped.

Coming back, I used Skyline and Page Mill. The latter is truly an amazing ride. Very sharp turns, elevation changes and beautiful views. Some pics from SBR:

I’ve now ridden about 800 miles in the last month and a half. It’s been an amazing experience so far.
