2 RR vids front view for Nail24

Here ya go...hiway nine from Saratoga to Skyline, then from Skyline to 236...both shot facing forward. I know these roads can be ridden a little faster but I tend to be conservative due to high LEO presence and cars inadvertently entering your lane on the lefthanders. Enjoy.

I did enjoy. You gotta love that slipper clutch. I watched this before my morning coffee and got too stoked to drink a second cup. Watch out for those "black snakes" this summer. I'd have to do something about that strobe light because you can shift on the sound alone it seems.

Alan, all those great roads in the Santa Cruz Mountains in the 70 were fantastic as the cops then had a some what hands off policy.

They're still "hands off" but now they have tasers...hmmm, I wonder if those things will penetrate leathers and a carbon/kevlar back protector?
Also, in the 70's there weren't nearly as many riders and for sure there were less squids on litre bikes tossing themselves off the side and crossing DY at every opportunity...

Good point, back then, the 70's, the riders up there did seem to be more experienced. there were for all practicable purposes no cruiser riders and the Harley riders stayed away.

My home was in Boulder Creek and I loved to blast up 9 and down Skyline to Alices on what ever trick BMW that Chris made into my current .....er.....ah....."Demo".

Having taken a tour of the upstairs at the shop and witnessed some of Chris' doings, I'll bet some of those "demos" were pretty damned exciting to ride...yee haw!

The potential in one of Chris' projects is always defined by the words that follow this opening, "What if we take this and..."

In the mid 70's when Chris was first hired as our Service Mgr, that might have very well been the first words he uttered to Ron, my partner, and my self, as he climed out of his POS Ford Econoline Van with all of his worldly possessions stuffed inside. One R75/5 Rat bike and a few clothes.

Damn those were great times, all three of us were single and the adventures were well beyond epic.................sigh...
