BMW and MG riders usually have their ear plugs screwed in so tight they can't hear anything. :)

Re: A few days in NorCal

After checking in at my motel and finding my room was much better than the one I had last time, I took a walk to go to evening yoga. I found that this: https://photos.smugmug.com/Adventures-2017/i-KD6zkHW/0/83b8de4c/XL/NCS20172-XL.jpg Had turned into this: https://photos.smugmug.com/Adventures-2018/...

Re: A few days in NorCal

All checked out and bike loaded, it was time to go to Santa Rosa. I'd planned to take this route , but I missed where 128 took off to the right and ended up on 121, which took me to the city of Napa. 121 was great! I was happy with my mistake. It becomes Monticello and in town it becomes Trancas. I ...

Re: A few days in NorCal

I awoke the next morning and had some time to kill before the 9:00 yoga class I had planned to attend. So I wandered about Grass Valley and checked stuff out. On this place, the neon looked legit: https://photos.smugmug.com/Adventures-2018/i-g7FxG5W/0/e512ca2e/XL/PackardGV-XL.jpg A quick call to Goo...

Re: A few days in NorCal

Picking up from Red Bluff, where I stopped to lose a layer of liner. 36 continues east from RB, but it's a very different road and terrain. Here's a look mostly west from a vista point: https://photos.smugmug.com/Adventures-2018/i-TCSJbcV/0/acfc8d23/XL/Hwy36Vista-XL.jpg Long sightlines and long stra...

A few days in NorCal

I got through tax season and had arranged a few days to get out and about to see some folks. But then, none of the people I expected to see were where I had expected to see them. So I took the same days and went where I wanted to go. In my car trip last November, I sampled CA Hwy 49 from Auburn sout...

Re: Photobucket

Since us inmates own the forum it is certainly possible to allow old posts to be edited. Shall we allow this for a while? Just say the word and I will temporarily change it so Mel can fix his photo links. Damn PhotoBucket anyway! https://i.imgur.com/Ied4kdK.png?2 I actually logged in to PB to check...

Re: Woo Hoo! A Big Project!

This thread is difficult with photobucket links. :twisted: :evil: Hey Melville, your colour scheme...red-burgundy with gold stripes? Is that an oem scheme? No, it's the official melville bicycle racing colors. Candyish red w/yellow. Indeed, I'm hating the PB folks right now. This board was set up s...
