Nice day - North Bay ride pics (some motorhead content)
I went for the first (non-shakedown) ride with my new Melton - yes! A loop from Noe Valley in SF across the GG Bridge, Sausalito, Corte Madera, Larkspur Ferry... back up Market, Howard, Valencia, and home - 29 riding miles.
The day was warm, but wonderful. And I just wanted to share some (sorry - not-so-great-quality) cell pics:
1.) Bay view from a Presidio lookout - Alcatraz and Palace of Fine Arts dome within bike frame; Angel Island on left
2.) GG Bridge north tower from shared (uggh) bike/ped. path; bike is in there somewhere
3.) Bay Bridge and SF skyline from Sausalito
4.) 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Mille Miglia (Ralph Lauren's) at a former employer's shop in Marin; you never know what a hedge is hiding - this model is an all-time favorite and among the world's most valuable automobiles; my bike is in there somewhere.
