Canadian Geese, Gold Country, More ECU love
Had a small 3 hour window to get in a ride on a glorious 80º day so I headed up to Auburn and down Hwy 49 to Coloma where gold was discovered in California. I mad a few quick stops.
The first was at the confluence of the North and South forks of the American river to check out the water flow.
Then on to Coloma where gold was first discovered at Sutter's Mill
Saw a nice Ducati going over a one lane bridge to a real nice campground right on the river.
I didn't get a picture but saw lots of Canadian geese, and assumed they were headed home to you folks up north. Spring is coming for you folks too!
Lots of rafters on the American Riverwhich has some awesome white water.
Miles of smiles with the ECU update. Much more effortless to keep either a slow or spirited pace. I find myself riding in the low to midrange of the power band. I'm frequently accelerating briskly from 3000 rpms instead of 4000 without downshifting nearly as much. Much has been said by others as well, but the bike really has a different (better) personality. Must be ridden to believe!
