Rode up there yesterday. Road was blocked off and construction was going on (where the road washed away on 130)

Rode up Quimby instead.

I road Mines today, and Del Puerto Canyon. The dirt and gravel here and there along the route made it a bit more interesting. As long as you expect another patch just out of sight around that next corner and go at a speed where you can stay in one of the wheel tracks, it's not really an issue.

I quite liked Del Puerto Canyon today, but most of the problems with that road seem to be permanent. Riding a bike with soft suspension and a lot of travel made a big difference on that road.

I noticed that there isn't a BARF sticker anywhere on the freezer door at The Junction. I saw stickers for City Bike, MotoWRX, and quite a few other local places, along with all the cowboy stuff. I would suggest that "somebody" put at least four small BARF stickers around that blue sticker in the upper right corner.

Seriously, somebody needs to do that.

I'll get right on that. Maybe tomorrow.

While I was descending toward Livermore a couple hours ago, up toward the Junction were coming a fire truck, ambulance + supervisor, and a motor unit (Alameda sheriff, I think), all rolling code 3. I hope, with their help, whoever got in trouble up there will be alright.

The motor sheriff rode into the Junction, got a Gatoeaids, waved to us, and rode back down Mines.

Our ride, Quimby, Mt Hamilton, San Antonio Valley and back was lovely. Surprizingly clean. Many of the usual suspects were at the Function. Junction.

Dude on a V-Rod lost it in a corner on the way back to Livermore from the Junction. My guess is alcohol made him forget he was on a Harley.

Crash was most-likely not alcohol related.
Drove out there in the truck to plug my tire later in the evening and chatted with the ALCO.

Good to see everyone on their motorbikes

Glad to have a touring bike on the ride so I could ride in style and comfort back to Livermore.

IIRC, Grant & I put the CityBike sticker on their reefer door.

Neither of us had a BARF sticker with us. Someone needs to work on having more BARF stickers available for BARFers to put on things...
