Hi all, I just picked up my 2013 Vegas 8ball on Friday. Having a blast with her so far. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's ideas and photos!

Whenever I see/hear anything about the East Bay, my thoughts go to the Blackhawk Automotive Museum in Danville. Ever been there? Its fabulous and worth a visit. The cars they display are there because they are works of art - automotive sculpture, so to speak. And the display halls are all black and the lighting is such that the car you're looking at is the only one there. If you qualify for a senior discount, you have to ask for it, cuz the residents in that area are so vein, they'll pass one up.

You know, I've lived out here my whole life but have never been there. I know where it is at too. Maybe soon! :D

Thanks! In the bay area about 30 minutes out of San Francisco
WAZZAP guys! I too am in the Bay Area, about 25 minutes outside of SF, in the Pinole area!!!

This weekend is, sadly, my last weekend of official freedom - my wife goes back to work next week after giving birth to our first child. This Sunda is the last Sunday that I am going to have to go riding without having to find a babysitter, as the wife works weekends...

SO LETS RIDE!!! I dont know about the group ride leaving Arlen Ness - last time I went there on a Sunday (4 weeks ago) they were closed and the sign said that they are closed indefinitely on Sundays now.

You guys ever ride through Napa/Lake Berryessa? Awesome roads, good places to stop for food, etc. Let me know if you want to hook up and ride!! Im riding regardless, since this is my last chance!!

Oh yeah - and WELCOME TO THE SITE!

And RICZ - the Blackhawk Museum is awesome, isnt it? Ive been there a few times...used to work in San Ramon, which is right next door to Danville/Blackhawk.

Right on man, sorry to hear your weekends will be filled but hey, family first!

My only other bike before this one was a DRZ Supermoto and it was geared for the street so I didn't get many long rides out of it. More for the twisties. Yes, Ness is closed on Sundays but that is where they were thinking of using as a meet up spot. I looked again but see hardly any further info. I'm only free on Sunday this weekend so I will keep you posted!

bay area mountain house bar

I too work in dublin and live close by. Great spot to ride to and have a beer is the mountain house bar on the old altamont pass road.

if you're headed east off at vasco and left over freeway and first right down the twisties.

great biker bar and place to have a beer.
I'll be rolling with new wheels in about 3 weeks if anyone wants to plan a bay area pow wow at the pub.
