Some pics from my daily ride

So I generally ride during the workweek too about 4 miles a day, so I took some pics for you guys today. Enjoy.

The Napa river


The worthless copia wine center, bringing more idiot tourists who cant drive to napa ... gee I wonder why this is the DUI capital of CA


Vulture (there was a dead possum in the road)


Lakeview park, used to be Napas water resivor but was decommisioned in the early 90's and turned into a park




Normally I ride through the elementary school behind this and hop the fence and ride up, but I rode early today and school was still in session


View from the back of the park


Not that it matters to anyone else, but this is the spot the car was parked when I got my first kiss back in high school after a dance

Uphill is always rewarded with downhill


Where the trail to my friends house starts


Kinda majestic back here .. isnt it?


My bike on the other side of the fence you have to hop to get to his house


Nice big rock in his yard, you can kinda see his house back there .. he has about 1 1/2 acres of land


I took some pics of his new engine buildup and stuff, but seeing as this is bikeforum and not carforum, here is a link to where I posted those if you are interested.

The land between some houses and the cemetary ... what a shame its gonna be developed soon




What happens when you have no front brake pads left and a cat unexpectedly runs out in front of you


The new 3rd street bridge napa built for flood control stupid 1 cent extra sales tax we got on everything to pay for this nonsense, gee theres a reason houses / businesses are cheaper in the flood plain, you dont wanna deal with it flooding, then DONT BUY A HOUSE IN THE FLOOD PLAIN!


Anyways, hope you guys enjoyed the pics

Im not entirely sure what all his plans are for the engine ... I know hes doing crvtec, but ive known this guy for quite a while and he probably will end up messing something up. I know he plans to be doing quite a bit of internal work to the engine ... and yes, its going into the 94 GSR you see in the pictures.

Good luck with your b18b! I know if I ever did another swap into my 91 Civic 4 door I would either do a d16z6 or a b18a ... cause im cheap like that and dont wanna have to pay for premium gas for the b16 or b18c1.
