Supposed to be a nice day for a ride. Got to Ripper's house around 8 and had to wait a bit for Fonzi to get ready. Once he got going, we were heading out around 8:25.

 

On the way to the freeway, Fonzi tells Ripper he needs gas. So we stop at the 76 on Watt Ave

After getting gas at Sam's, met Roy in the parking lot.

Ripper never took his helmet off. Talked a lot about Roy's new bike.

Found our way to Renee's place. Parked our bikes and warmed up in the sun. Fonzi had to make sure all the chrome on his bike was sparkling clean.

 

Found good parking in the shade.

Patty melt, fries, and some of the best brown gravy I have ever had. Totally blew the diet today.

 

Heading back the way we came.

This @$$hole was on Ripper's butt the whole way on Hwy 16 until he passed. Stupid people.

 

Stopped at Cache Creek gas station for a drink and ice cream.

Got this good shot of Fonzi as we were taking the Auburn Blvd. exit. Good shot of Ripper and his white helmet. We had a great ride today. 290 miles.
