Yeah, we made it!
Our house needs a new roof. So, what does this have to do with motorcycling? Actually a lot: we needed to do roof shopping (checking out the different metal tile styles and colors) and last weekend we were riding around in the area with our bikes to look at roof examples. By then I never had been riding my F650GS on a highway.
That day we combined them all: Highway 280, 101, 85, 17. In conclusion, it's ok on a highway to reach the desired destination quickly. However, riding close to all these people in their huge cars who see driving only as a secondary activity (Besides texting, having a phone conversation, eating, drinking coffee and correcting their make-up. All at the same time of course.) is not really my favorite!

As a treat, we took the long way home via Black Road and Skyline Blvd and stopped at Alice's Restaurant for dinner. Oh, as for the roof it will be SteelRock Villa Tiles in Mission Red! :-)
