Other members from SF Bay Area?
« on: August 30, 2015, 03:29:39 am »
I just got my TTSE last week. I live in San Jose, near Silicon Valley. Just wondering if there are any other local members here?   If so, might be nice to meet each other someplace on a weekend ride like Alice's or Four Corners to  chat about our bikes.

I have a home in South San Francisco and I will be there in about a week or so. 

But I keep all four of my motorcycles here in Reno. One of my riding buddies, about a half mile from here used to live in San Jose. But he rides a Yamaha RSV.

I assume you got your TTSE from the BMW and Triumph shop in Mt.View.

I take it you have done the ride of Mt. Hamilton to Mines Road in Livermore a few times. I have done that ride countless times.

Correct!  I have done Mines Road a few times, but not for a long time. Never one of my favorites though. Do you do all your riding near Reno and Lake Tahoe?  I don't get up there very often, but lots of nice places there to go riding.  I might go on a ride hosted by Cal Moto around here before the end of the year.  I like to go riding with my Son on weekends. He has a new Vrod.

90% of my riding is in eastern CA, starting from Reno. Today, went to Lake Davis, CA after a stop in SierraVille. On the TTSE.

Here are a few examples of the places i like to ride to from here in Reno:

Mt. Lassen across Lake Almanor:



Antelope Lake:



Since you mentioned Lake Tahoe,

Down closer to  Lake Tahoe.
