Mini's make a trip up Mt Hamilton to the James Lick Observatory.

The original thread;
http://www.bayarearidersforum.com/fo...=281335&page=2

The route:
(in a nut shell ) Meet at Capital Ave/Alum Rock in San Jose, Mt Hamilton Rd to James Lick Observatory, down the back side to Mines Rd and lunch at The Junction. Mines back into Livermore, then home bound = 100+miles http://tinyurl.com/c3mq5w




Attendee's: Secn8ure (Mark) w/ his 05 CBR150r, Neal_Ave (Neal) w/ his Aprilla RS50, JJ83 (JJ) w/ his Honda 600rr, and myself (04 CBR150r)

Here are a few highlight pics of the ride

On the way to the meet spot, CBR Bros take a trip through Felter Rd in San Jose........ over looking The Valley


It's been a while since visiting the Felter side. More especially taking it all the way down to Sierra Rd.

Neal & JJ's awaiting our arrival at the Meet Spot

A Stop at the James Lick Observatory


A small view over looking Mt Hamilton and The Valley


The view was spectacular and we could see from from far So. San Jose to North as the eye can see (SF). Mt. Hamilton was a blast! Fortunately, the light dusting of gravel we experienced was 'visable' on the way up to allow us for a safe passage. However, on the back side, we experienced more dusting of dark colored gravel But once passed those areas, it was smooth sailing and wide open divided lanes

A stop for lunch at The Junction (Mines Rd/Del Puerto)


Great food with great company

A final stop at Starbucks in Livermore (Vasco Rd), before heading home


Mark departed us at Niles Canyon. Unfortunately, Neal experienced a fuel delivery issue not long after starting up through Calaveras Rd. Thankfully, his wife was home and was able to pick him up. Otherwise, I was his back-up (truck w/ moto tote ). I parted Neal and JJ and continued through Calaveras to home.

Thanks for suggesting the route guys (Neal & Mark)! I had a great time and with great people. Looking forward to our next venture

A Mini Ride up to Mt. Hamilton

Tried to rally up the mini guys for a ride up through Calaveras and Mt Hamilton. It was a bit of late notice.....sorry guys. Mark was the only one available.

Initially I was going to take the CBR but ran into some bike issues.....never made it out of Milpitas to the meet spot (Mission Blvd/Niles Canyon). I got a hold of Mark and told me to fire up the NSR and meet him at the *$ near Calaveras/680.

We went straight for Mt Hamilton and to my surprise, the NSR faired well and had a fun ride

Made a short stop to hydrate ourselves, being it was pretty dang hot out today


Soon enough, we made it to the Observatory






Surprisingly, it was a lot hotter at base level of San Ho vs at the Observatory.

Thanks for joining me today, Mark and glad you made it home safely

Till the next meet

'super long term' almost feels like an understatement
