I have been back a little over a week from our annual GUYS ONLY RIDE, we cut it short because of the weather, snow and rain the the high Sierra's. We did most of the ride in Northern Calif. around hwy 49 and the Gold Country and Morro Bay area.
One of the guys who was suppose to go had bike trouble, (he rides an 04 ST1300 with 70,000 miles on it) he caught up with us on Friday, Then on Saturday he got a flat tire. Went to a Honda shop in Modesto Calif to get it fixed. While he was waiting for it I saw an 09 ST1300 with ABS for $11700, it only had 7200 miles on it and it was gorgeous. I told him to offer them $11,000 out the door, he did and they took it. So his flat tire cost him $11,000. But he has a new bike also.

Looks like a great trip. I know of a couple of riders who had to change plans because of the unsettled weather. But from the photos, looks like to outran the rain.

Thanks for the photos. I can't afford to get a flat in the USA next year at $11000. But he must still be happy. Eric

We were going to go farther north but because of the weather we headed south and home.

Well if I wasn't there to egg him on he probably would have got out of the shop with only a new tire on his old bike. I haven't seen his wife since his purchase but I'm staying clear of her for awhile :)

Great pics Joe. Looks like you had a good time even if it was shorter than expected. You make one heck of a salesman. I also noticed there was only 1 Wing in the group. How did the Kow run and was there a big difference from your Wing??

Picture number eight looks like some of the roads around here, don't have any problems as there are no shoulders! I need to say one other thing, they are last years pictures, according to the date stamp. :)

joe. I'm going to need tires by the end of this riding season. Can you recommend a type of motorcycle I should mount on them?
