    Coming home stopped by the Amsoil store and got a gal of motorcycle 10/40 oil full synthetic. Found the outlet store on the El Camino in Redwood city.

    I use to take Hwy 101 all the way but since this is a new engine with under 400 miles break in I took EL Camino all the way to Mission than I crossed South San Francisco into the city. I was splitting lanes all the way till I got to Fisherman's wharf MC parking.

    My old route was taking EL Camino to Mission than took the side roads till I got to the back side of San Francisco and headed down the street to the new Chase stadium and crossed to SF baseball field than onto the Embarcadero then onto Fisherman's wharf. If traffic is diverted near fisherman's wharf I would stop the grom get on the sidewalk and remove my helmet and grom key and push my grom on the sidewalk till I got to the MC parking near where you can see it in my posted picture above. Reason why I remove my key from my grom is that in case the cops say I was riding on the sidewalk and want to give me a ticket for that I can say there is no reason I'm riding on the sidewalk since there's no key in the ING. Have to cover all your bases.


    If you are riding from South Bay to SF it is best to leave by 7-8am to get there before 10am for choice parking.

    Fun ride you get to see the various cities that make up the Bay area, you see their life style and type of people that live in those cities esp the Mission area where there is a lot of Spanish people and homeless people and drug dealings going down, crazy but fun.

    Very nice Cisco. My GF's family is from the Bay Area, and being an SD native I love visiting, especially the wharf (I love raw oysters).

    It would be cool to roadtrip from SD to SF on a bike, maybe one day. I can imagine its already starting to get nippy this time of year.
