Last weekend the GF and I loaded the FZ's into the truck, unloaded them in Grass Valley and rode Hwy 49. Stopped at Basetts Station for lunch, rode to the top of Yuba Pass, then back down to Grass Valley. Put them back in the truck and went to Auburn. Stopped at the old Fosters Freeze for a bannana split, then on to the fairgrounds to watch some FAST FRIDAYS flat track racing. Great racing! Then back to Gardnerville. Got home about 130am.

Great times and we are gonna miss this part of living here when we move to Idaho.

Having lived in the Bay Area the last 25 years, I've ridden every road from Marin county to Tahoe. I used to do annual trips down to Death Valley along the coast. If it's twisty, I've ridden it. I'm looking forward to putting on some major highway miles and exploring the southwestern states awhile.

Hi guys, I may as well chime in. Rode Hayabusas for a number of years, 80% of that was two up with the wife. We also rode a GT1600, sweet ride. We rode dirt for a little while and have now settled into our road couch, a 17 Ultra limited, oh so comfy. The Harley is only bike we have now.

I'm jealous!

CA is six miles from my place, but it leads to Death Valley. Not that conducive for riding in 100+ weather.

But it is gorgeous country!

The ride through Susanville can't be beat. And the back roads to Tahoe are sweet.
Here is my Harley overlooking Lake Tahoe:

And here is a photo of west of SusanVille, at Lake Almanor across Lassen Volcanic National Park. I rode my old BMW there this time, but I had to walk a few feet away from it to get this photo:

Here is my newest toy, a 2020 Energica Esse Esse 9 Electric motorcycle.

My tenth motorcycle. I bought it new last August, but I forgot about this old thread until now so here it is.

There is a simple formula for how many motorcycles we should own.

The formula is "N+1" where "N" is the number of motorcycles we currently own.

Heh, I once had that problem, big time. I managed to get my addiction down to two and keep it steady at this point.
But I enjoy my addiction! Lately, I am mainly addicted to electric motorcycles. Ever ride one?

I put more miles on my three electric motorcycles than my other seven ICE bikes combined in the last few years.

Motorcycles are one of my biggest passions... currently have a 2018 Yamaha R1 and a 2017 Ducati Multistrada. This is after deciding that all my older bikes had to go as I was getting tired of spending more time wrenching on them than riding them. Some of my past bikes were: 2000 R1, 2006 KTM 625 Supermoto, 2008 Suzuki DRZ 400 Supermoto, Honda CRF250x (stolen), Honda GB500, Yamaha SRX6, 1984 Honda NIghthawk 700S, and a few others.
