California Riding

This was back during my trip to the US during March. This is me and my friend Hamdy riding on the Yamaha R1, and the FZ6. These bikes are still in the states, but I have them parked at this place! I love the R1, and the FZ6 is such an easy and capable bike to ride during the day. If I wanted to run quick errands or get to Jack in the Box quickly I would take the FZ6 and a back pack. It was always nice to go at night when its slightly cold, and then have something warm attached to your back, but I could never buy drinks! hehehehe! So if anyone wanted shakes they were out of luck!


This was the slowest thing on the road! It was no challenge to any bike!


Me and Hamdy went riding by the coast on Highway 84 up to the Cafe, then we continued down 84 until we hit the 1 and road down the coast. This was an amazing ride, and I was on the FZ6 and he was on the R1. He was basically screwing around with me since he knew I could barely keep up. But since I changed the tires on the FZ6 to Diablos I could do a better job around corners. And I feel the bike is more confident! It seriously was amazing and exhilirating!

When we walked into the cafe, we took our helmets, and jackets off to get a nice cold coke! And we also ordered a cheeseburger! hehehehe!


Everytime I ride its such a rush, because your going at a decent pace and to your left is the mountain wall, and to your right is a decent drop that you wouldnt want taking. And your trying to go around corners fast, but at the same time taking into consideration what might be around the corner. My brain feels like its taking every input from the bike, and trying to predict all the possible outcomes while trying to be ready for anything. You can only prepare for so much, but still sweeping through those corners while getting fresh mountain air gives my brain a little tickle. But reaching the Cafe where all the highways intersect its like a little gold mine of bikes and other goodies! It always feels like I got the prize everytime I reach there. I may have dont this at least 30 times now, but everytime seems like a new adventure that you are setting out from dawn!

You could see so many bikes, and so many different types of people riding.
