    Ok, we used to stay in Willow Creek but now we stay in Weaverville, but the name stuck. Just got back last night, put in a hair under 1000 miles between Friday and Sunday. Some of the best riding roads in Northern California, this year was the first I didn't ride one of the GSXRs. Two up with the wife on the VFR with the new shock from DMR, and bags instead of a heavy backpack. Bike ran flawlessly, although above 5ooo' of elevation, it seemed to act weird when in neutral throttle.

    Anyway, my arse was way happier at the end of this year's ride than others, I picked up a new set of riding/touring pants, and a cool vest. That vest saved the day for sure on Saturday. I look forward to this ride every year. Unfortunately, Sunday produced some unsavory situations and I put the bike up for sale. Not my first choice but it fulfilled everything I wanted out of it: Owning and riding a VFR, pure enjoyment of riding it, finessing it around corners, good handling (would be great if had the forks done) and two up riding.
