Six County Ride.

There used to be a time, when the RRs would be for a six state ride. Now, as lame as it maybe, all I have time for is just some pictures from a six county ride (Sacramento, Placer, Nevada, Yuba, Butte, Plumas) for me - and led by a home grown Hooligan, and a Brit ( I think, I didn't confirm), who happens to work in the same building as I - but whom I had not met in person till this day.

Not much to say, not because there wasn't much said. There was plenty said on the intercoms,  all in good fun, I might even have offended Jeff, but because I don't have much time to do this write-up.

Just some pics and a line here and there. HotRodZilla would like this RR.

All the pictures happened on the return trip. Riding out was more a speed blur for me than anything, chasing the two fast bikes. It's no wonder that ever since I have started riding with Doug, my gas mileage and tire mileage has gone way down - and I now wear out the sides of the tires before I wear out the middle..

This was the turn-around point at Belden, besides the Feather River.

...and by the Belden power-house.

We retraced our steps, and returned to the town of Cherokee, where I had wanted to stop and read this plaque. Cherokee used to be a diamond mine here in the heart of Gold Country.  They used hydraulic mining to wash away entire hill-sides looking for a sparkling rock, but of a different kind. This plaque is encased in some of the rocks which washed away from the hill-sides. If you look closer, you would notice a wide variety of them.

Looked for Pocahontas, but couldn't find her..

Saw signs for this covered bridge, so had to go find it. Would have been a good picture - but for Doug insisting his ugly mug be in it...

That's all. Didn't check the final mileage for the day, but we rode rough back roads all day long - and were quite tuckered out in the end. The ride back home was a bit of a drag - and I was tired... but made it home safely!

See ya'll later! 


  1. Glad you made it home safe. Hard day chasing those sport bikes around. Been there.

    Great find on the covered bridge too!

  2. Thank you! It was tough to keep that XR in sight. That BMW XR is a raging beast!
