After some final maintenance and repairs, I got my R75/5 out on the road and on a 200 mile trip yesterday! I have been the proud owner for a month now and am excited to go on these excursions for years to come.
I started out in Los Gatos up HWY9 to Santa Cruz. Then headed north on HWY 1 to Half Moon Bay. Then backtracked a bit and up a little known road to Skyline. Skyline took me back to HWY 9 and home.
I took plenty of pictures, I am posting my personal favorites from the trip. Enjoy!:
Santa Cruz Wharf with the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in the background. It was a perfect day!
One of the many beaches that lines HWY 1. Kite surfing is very popular here!
Pigeon Point Lighthouse, one of the most beautiful lighthouses I have seen. I have been inside and seen it operating when I was in a 5th grade field trip. =)
Another perspective from the side. Below on the right are some really amazing tide pools. I went and checked out the starfish.
One more perspective. =D
Half Moon Bay, CA
Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Patch. This is the patch of choice each and every year.
Verde Rd to Cutoff up to Skyline. This road was a blast to ride on, no traffic and you can really feel the torque going up the hill. 2nd gear anyone?
And of course Alice's restaurant. I think every bike deserves a picture in front of this notorious motorcycle hang out!
Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
