The Ride: Part3 - Marin Headlands

Smiley's was great, but what waited ahead of us was even better. The next stretch of HWY 1 can only be described as the perfect motorcycling road. Oh sure, it can scare the whimpering shit out of you, but if you get it right, and hit your rhythm on these treacherous little twisties...Ho Ho...it's better than any medication you can get your hands on!
Some of you might think: Right, you guys are on 50 year old bikes with hard-tails, vintage tires and brakes from the last century - well Bubba, I'm here to tell you that's no handicap for this group! These are motorcycle folk! And, make no mistake, the ride was spirited and quick into the corners.
In any case, our next stop was the Marin Headlands. An amazing place, with a view of the Golden Gate, and a menacing 18% grade entrance. Max and Michael decided to coast that entrance with their engines off and take in the view of the bay...the perfect way to end this leg of the ride; well almost...

Stay tuned for the final leg of the ride...
