Well it was a another one of those California nice days, so I took advantage of it and went for ride on the Blur Cool

I took the back-roads from Pleasanton to Milpitas on Calaveras Rd. It was truly amazing looking at the mountain see-nary and going around all the twisty and turns the road had to offer. I was taken back by the ride through the mountain and the see-nary I think I went all the way through only doing 5 to 10mph I just couldn't stop looking and taking pictures. I was going so slow other motorcyclist must of known It was my first time, they where zooming by me as if they had did it a thousand times.

Once I made it all the way through the mountain I turned around and decided to come back through it again.
But on the way back I decided speed it up a bit I found the twisties to be fun. [I got to do that again]!!

Thanks Dru,

One weekend I got to hit Pagemill Rd. I grew-up over their and worked on Pagemill Rd. I miss that side of the Bay from time to time I'll drive over there just to look around Palo Alto,Menlo Park, Mountain View, Sunnyvale ECT.

One day I plan to move back Very Happy

wow, nice photos!

Too bad I can't get that type of scenery livin in the FLATLANDS! (Illinois)
Especially up North!

..it's ok, that just means less time to admire scenery and more time to admire speed! haha Razz

Nah, but being able to at least drive through forests and along rivers is still really nice...mountains would be nice though.
