With gas close to $4/gallon, I was finally able to convince Roy to take a ride on this beautiful day.

 

We met at Sam's in Yuba City and filled up on gas.

Went in to Sam's to get some meds for Roy. I wanted to get rice, but I couldn't figure out how to strap on 25 pounds on to my seat!

 

Heading towards Oroville.

Approaching Feather Falls Casino. Just one of my desserts. We ate at the buffet. It was only $10, but there wasn't a whole lot of selection. The tri-tip was way overdone and dry, but the ice cream cone was good.

We decided to go to Gold Country Casino to check out what they had for a buffet. Roy made the mistake of pulling head-in to a downward facing parking spot. This is him trying to back out. Not much luck. I had to help push.

 

Finally got our bikes parked. The buffet here is MUCH better. Only $7 and they had about 5 times the selection of Feather Falls. We'll be going there from now on.

Heading back to Yuba City. The Buttes were barely visible through the haze.

 

After getting gas, stopped by Sharon's. Here she is giving the hippie greeting.

And now she's giving the Vulcan greeting! On the way home, caught this picture of a plane and a dust-devil. Nice day for a 180 mile ride.
