Different car. Mirrors are not the same. Still, way cool. Ah, and the ride was pretty ultimate.

Last weekend we scheduled BAD KOBAZ 2.

6 riders ended up being 2 due to various reasons.

So it ended up being the Butcher and I, although Mean Dad did join us for the first part down to Monterey. It was fun following him on his RZ 350 hearing and smelling the joys of a 2 stroke. A quick shot by Uvas and over Hecker Pass took us to HWY 1 when Mean Dad split from us. It was short Kevin, but it was still cool to ride with ya. Watching the joy in his body language was fun to see.

Then it was just Butch and I. We headed out on a Friday this time and found traffic to be way more favorable. Probably because there was no big event in Carmel. Weather was superb.

Lunch in Big Sur took us to coastal Nirvana once again. We stopped a couple times took a few pics and made our way into Cayucos at about 4 checking in.

Luckily I had called into the hotel while stopped for gas and they were able to rent the extra room to save us the pain of paying for two, when only needing one. The Cypress Tree Motel would be home of an evening.

This one was 30 bux more than the previous, but hey more stuff worked.
All the lights worked, the TV remote worked, there was soap and shampoo in the bathroom and actually even a small mouthwash! The exhaust fan did not work, but overall it was quite an upgrade.

We had a bit further walk to the Cayucos Card Room, but not long. The ride and a couple of bourbons and beers had our mood good and as always Butch and I enjoyed the conversation. A lot more people in the bar on a Friday and since it was the Friday before Halloween the bar tender shift brought us a dude quite decked out.

I had a reservation at Cafe Della Via for 7pm and man I loved eating garlic bread.
I have been dieting so mostly no breads, pasta rice etc. A good bottle of Cabernet meshed perfectly with the food, which was exquisite once again.

At about 8:30 we walked out and Butch was ready to chill so we did not go back and light it up like last time. When we got to the room he quickly retired to his suite ( a bed in a separate room) and I just kicked it back watching the tube.

Morning came early and Butch was dressed and ready to roll by 7:45 after walking to get a latte and a double expresso for me. By 8:15 we were on the bikes and heading back. No brekkie this time had us on HWY 1 by 8:30. An empty HWY 1. Wow.. unfortunately the road remained a bit damp here and there but chill mode in the stunning beauty still had me smiling.

We stopped at the Big Creek bridge, where a tourist offered to snap a pic of us and then asked if that was the Bixby Bridge. "Nope you passed it a while back, where the cluster of people and traffic was" .... and when we got there is certainly was.. holy shit. Nuts how many people were just stuffing vehicles anywhere possible.

A gas stop and a quick snack had us back on the road and then we blew it missing the Castroville BLVD turn off that would have had us back towards 152 and Uvas. Oh well.

We ended up almost getting backed over by a truck when we stopped to go WTF. So after that close call we hit 101 and decided to droned it home from there.

Two days of good fun on two wheels once again. This Cayucos thing is going to be a regular trip for me from hear on out. Once in the Spring and once in the fall. I really like that small little coastal town and quiet nature of staying in the middle of the epic beauty of the coast.

Good times Butch.

That little bit of a ride was a blast! I missed riding a sportbike fast a lot more than I realized.

Shoulder was killing me by the time I got home, glad I peeled off or I would have been miserable on Sunday.

I LOVE THAT TWO-STROKE SOUND.

Fun while is lasted for sure! I could have sworn I took a pic of you at Butch's place before we left, but NO! Old man brain fail.

The RZ has impressive performance for an OG two stroke and yes it sounds awesome!!
