|Memorial Day 2011. Finally, a
"nice" day to ride. Met Rich at work and decided to head down
|Rich wanted to take pics in
front of our building. This is Rich's Kawasaki he got for about $5K.
|Heading down the river, there were lots of boats out today.||Stopped to take some pics of
the boats passing by. The flowers were really blooming today.
|This reminded me a little of
riding in Kauai. Lots of tree tunnels.
|Stopped off at the ferry just
outside of Rio Vista. Had to wait a bit for it.
|Waiting for the ferry.
|Finally got on the ferry. Rich
hamming it up all day!
|I was just happy the ferry was

|Heading toward the Rio Vista
|Had lunch at Foster's Bighorn.

|Outside Foster's Bighorn.
|Rich on the Rio Vista bridge.
Had to wait a little for the drawbridge.
|We crossed over a lot of

Rich's comment was...
"Great Cruze Paul. Not to mention that Paul is the only person I know that knows how (AND WILL) take pictures from his Bike at 70 mph!"
|This is Rich's idea.||I have no idea why I played along. But, it was still a great 163 mile ride for me.|
