I went for a great little ride today. I live in Northern Calif in the mountains. There are a ton of small communities out in the sticks around here I have never been to for some reason. I do get pretty nervous worrying about deer as they are all over the place up here. The roads are amazing because they follow the terrain. It is like being on a roller coaster you are in control of. I really like the steep hills dropping off and rising again almost instantly. Long sweeping 45 mph turns. I swear I almost had to do a 360 it was the strangest curve I have ever been on. I don't really like riding alone but today was fun. On the way home a guy on a HD fell in behind me. We were tearing it up passing cars and such (wear it was permissible). I wish I had a helmet cam as I think you guys would love this area. All in all a great day so far!
