Welcome aboard from San Antonio, TX. Used to live near the Bay Area and thought it was tremendous. That was in the 1960s and it was an amazing place then. One of my most enduring memories was being present when the legendary stripper Carol Doda streaked the Marina Green. Memorable.

I ride in and out of the SF Bay Area for work, but live in the central valley. Good choice on the ride!

Thanks, Arion! Streaking the Marina Green ... sounds awesome! I will have to look that one up!

Thanks Devilsfan! I think the green looks much better in person.. .
I am really enjoying it (took it for the IRC course here and had a blast!). But I am still in the 'getting to know it phase'. Need to take it on frequent and long rides to get past that. The weather here is great for year long riding but the traffic is terrible though.

Hi Nonsequitur, thanks. Good to know. I am used to flat, long roads - like the central valley ones?.. How's the traffic there..
