The Beginning (of posting on this site)

Brand new to creating a site, a story and adding photos. So, here goes. Yesterday Bob was visiting us from the Bay Area. He and Dan wanted to go for a motorcycle ride so I tagged along.

It was a great day to get out and play. The sun was shining, the temps were reasonable, the roads were clear.

No specific plan other than heading to Rainbow Pool to start our ride. We were the only ones there although there was a truck in the parking lot.  So pretty to see and so relaxing to hear the Tuolumne River running through.near Rainbow Pool

After determining it might be too cool to continue heading east, we backtracked a bit and then took Smith Station Rd to Coulterville. Had to stop at The Jeffrey so the guys could have a Kilt Lifter. Met another couple from Sonora who were also out riding their Kawasaki.

The next part of the ride was on Hwy 49 to Mariposa. This is a motorcyclists dream road: smooth pavement, lots of curves and beauty all around. We stopped after passing by Bagby Recreation Area.  This is looking back toward the bridge.

We met several other bikers at the Fremont’s Fort monument. Dan, with a new audience, was telling tales…  (that’s him on his imaginary bike)

After riding through Mariposa and Hornitos, we stopped alongside the road just to enjoy the day.  Here’s Bob with his baby.

We stopped for lunch at The LumberYard. They are known for their burgers but we were a day late. A big party the night before had left them beef-less. So we had chicken tacos which were pretty darn good.misc 045

With full tummies, we headed back home.  What a great day of riding with two of my best buds.
