"winter" is probably not a fair description of this Californian's

In September, I wandered down the coast to Monterey. Little

backroads. One of which took me through the strawberry
fields. I likened it to a scene from a Steinbeck book.
In Monterey, I visited the Aquarium taking some time to renew
Of course, the SF Motorcycle show was a must-see event.
Followed by some Christmas fun.
Throughout the winter months, I've take several trips over to
the coast. The beach is a favorite destination when I'm out

The BMWSportTouring group met for lunch at Phil's and dinner
at the Brookdale Lodge.
One of the guys wanted to know about Palo Alto so I took a ride
over and copped some pictures.
I worked on some new camera technique. I have a lot to learn.
I've met some pretty interesting people and enjoyed some
mighty fine riding.

California? Why to fill you with inspiration for the summer riding
And to think, it all started with a trip to Tahoe in June to
Celebrate the 80th.
Who'd have thunk?
