    some pics from my ride today, Rockville Hills park, Fairfield CA

    It was a nice short ride ... havent gone in a while, plus I needed to come back this afternoon to work on some essay for school, anyways on with the pics

    First we waited at starbucks for a while for syd to show up ... he said 9:25




    Here he is


    Fashionably late


    hmm when did napa get traffic cameras?


    looks like its sell cherries on the side of the highway season


    so once we got there we had to do some last minute maintence


    and neal had to get his kneepads on which he has trouble with everytime

    neal on the other hand ...


    so we are pretty high up here now




    and the hill is steep right here ... even I lost traction on this loose stuff


    then we rode for a while more






    and then we waited for a while for the rest and russie took a pic of me

    then we rode up the "rock garden" which is a fairly technical trail that is uphill ... had a blast on it .. then we arrived at the vista point




    im laaaaaiiid back


    took some more pics after that






    then we found this really big hole ... I tried to order some chow mein and orange sesame chicken, but to no avail




    one last hill on the way back to the cars

    so then we packed up








    did about 2 1/2 hrs of riding or so ... not bad


    cruisin back


    yet another cherry stand


    and this old integra in front of us which I found amusing because it had a VTEC sticker, and honda did not introduce VTEC into the US until 1993 or so, and this car is an 89 or older

    Nope, looks like a 87-89. I owned one, hated it, but we won't go there.

    You never know what could be under the hood of a honda,
    engine swaps are cake in those cars.


    Nice pics, looked like a fun day!

    believe me its an 86-89 ... the taillights on the second gen integras are red on the bottom and clear / amber on top. Im fairly into imports also and drive a 1991 Civic LX with a SOHC ZC swap. I am a member at automotiveforums.com, superhonda.com, illusiverides.com, and shatter-box.net ... same username on all those sites.

    As far as the possiblity of the teg having a swap I doubt it ... the clear coat on the roof was coming off, and the windows were full of bubbling purple tint.

    Not as classic as the guys down the street who had a base line mustang with lots of extra plastic trim and several big "Shelby" stickers.
    Nice pics. Excellent narration.

    Great pics, sounds like a fun day. One thing stood out, though...a pickup truck with a bike rack on the roof? Where I come from, that's like mounting the gun rack on the hood.
