    Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge into the city, we make our way to the most
    posh section to annoy and terrorize the locals. However, the traffic soon
    annoyed me...and the steepness of the streets were terrorizing.
    How do those people make out in a light drizzle?

    A trip down the curviest part of Lombard netting folks taking pictures of us
    (probably hoping we'd fall).
    We make our way into Chinatown for some fancy dinner at the Great Eastern.
    Good thing that they seated us alone as we hadn't had a shower for a couple
    of days by now. Off to San Jose to see a childhood chum and off to Jackson
    to see some net scum for the weekend.

    Leaving Jackson, we cruise through the Sierras, across Tioga Pass in
    Yosemite Park, then into Nevada towards Las Vegas. We cruised the Strip and
    stopped in at Treasure Island. No joy, they are completely full.
    That's amazing. It's a huge hotel/casino and all booked up. We found a room
    at the Holiday Inn across the highway rather late.

    Holy crap! It's 10 am! And I'm just waking up. Mouse says she thought I
    needed the rest, but it puts a detour by the Grand Canyon just out of reach.
    We cross Hoover Dam, catch I40 all the way to Amarillo and back home from

    6000 miles in 12 days (10 if you don't count the couple of days at SNIFF in

    Man, my bike sure is dirty.

    We've met, at Sonic back when they did it down the road from me.
    I had the black flame Shadow ACE, got a Goldwing now.
    I know of a few rides (local) in November, I'll post them for ya.
    Maybe you'uns can make a Terlingua run w/ us in March, I think we are
    gonna take 67 across instead of 20 this time. as long as we get to Ft.
    before dark the first night.
