    Hi Everyone! I think I am ready. Well as ready as i'll ever be. I'm leaving ventura on friday morning early and riding solo up to Sacramento. From there I will meet up with some friends and head over to Fan Francisco...



    I had a tune up on my lovely and purchased a very cool(warm) touring jacket and just put on a new windshield... I thought it might look ridiculous but I was pleasantly surprised.

    I shipped all my clothes to SF so I wouldn't have carry so much... I know koo koo but I want just a little bag with just the necessities on it...

    My sweet guy sent me a care package containing a tire changing kit, earplugs, a butt pad, and some lovely little good luck bells... So I think I'm set. I have AAA and my i phone so I'm ready..



    I will stop every hundred miles to fuel up and take some photos....



    can't wait!



    Ps I meant San Jose... But I think you know that

    Good luck. Have fun. Doable in one long day -- about 400 miles.



    You planned on I-5? Remember the cars on I-5 usually cruise along between 75 and 85 mph and many go faster. Stay to the right.



    Just looking at the map it might be nice to take Hwy 33 north until it intersects I-5.

    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    You've got more between your legs than I do and I don't know if that's a good thing. I-5 is like the freaking autobahn. Are you sure you don't want to rethink taking the scenic route? Good luck, have fun and be careful.
