My traveling Compadre arrived right on time at SFO, and she packed with her a new seat for my trusty 2008 motor bike. There was some doubt as to the seat fitting the bike, or not, even though precise measurements and photos were texted along the cellular network. You might have lost a call because of this texting, but one should be joyous to learn that the seat was a perfect fit and the tattered torn seat can now be dumped at the Maserati, and Ferrari, upholstery shop on first street that had no time for my business
Take A Seat
I was a bit worried that the new seat would not cradle my bum in the style and comfort it has become accustomed to, so a shake down ride with the Golden Gate HOG, s was in order on the day before we were to leave for Morro Bay to meet up with another pal who would be sweep on the ride across the country.
We made it up to the dealer in plenty of time as traffic was light on the 101 Saturday morning, and after a while more than a few riders arrived. I not only remembered a couple of them from previous rides with the club, but remarkable they remembered me.
As on any HOG ride the riders gathered up for information about the route we would take. Who was lead and who was sweep, and my favorite part, is always aboot the hand signals that would be used. I was shocked to learn that the hand signal we use to get the train to blow its whistle is the hand signal they use to gather the bikes up in a closer formation.
We blasted out of the dealer, through the construction and on to familiarly roads south bound. At the south bay we turned east and road through the rolling east bay hills, with a rest stop at an almost full reservoir with only an outhouse perched precariously on the edge of the gravel parking lot.
JJ’ Burgers were fantastic, the service was excellent, and since it was Saturday the main street was closed off for a car show, with bands and cars that were painted the most vivid colors ever.
Jan Juan Bautista that I have ridden past many times is well worth a stop, and I hear there is a excellent bakery there too Bakery San Juan
