Derrick Ward Memorial Car and Motorcycle Show – 4/23/2017

On Sunday, we headed to Dudley Perkins Harley Davidson to ride with the Pacific Savagez to Pacifica for the Derrick Ward Memorial Car and Motorcycle show. There were about 50 bikes in the group, and I think I was the only woman riding (and also the only person on a sportster). -Kim

Biltwell’s “Delta 200” Meet up in Antioch

Here are some pictures I took from Biltwell’s “Delta 200” meet up in Antioch. I didn’t get a chance to ride with the group since my group was in a rush to get to Sacramento for a few other events, but I did stay at the Red Caboose for a good hour before we left….

Russian River Valley | Ride With Me

For this weekend’s trip, I decided to head north to the Russian River Valley of Sonoma. I spent the early planning stages looking up Airbnb’s to rent near Occidental and Sebastopol for a homey vibe, but by the time I got the “ok” from Felipe to book the trip, everything was sold out. Luckily I…

Groveland, CA | Ride With Me

On Thursday afternoon, I began to plan our next weekend adventure. The two options were either heading down south to Pinnacles National Park or east to Yosemite. The weather was going to be partly cloudy with no rain for both locations, so we decided to head East toward the mountains (I’m saving the Pinnacles trip…

[Updated] Viva Las Vegas! | Ride With Me

So here I am, planning another impulsive trip to meet my parents in Las Vegas this weekend. My dad is playing in a baseball tournament on Saturday and they booked a room at the Caesar’s Palace (with space for me to crash!), so what better way to spend the weekend than riding over a thousand…

Salinas and Monterey | Ride With Me

I decided to hit the coast on Saturday and head down towards Monterey. This trip was fueled by my search for John Cerney’s “giant figures” – 18 feet art installations in the Salinas agricultural farms. I headed South from Fremont on 880, took a quit bathroom break at House of Thunder Harley Davidson in Morgan…

Beer Friday’s with the Angry Scotsmen

The Angry Scotsmen Riding Club hosts Beer Friday’s frequently at a bar near my home! I’ve met a handful of the guys in this club, and they are incredibly friendly and fun to hang out with. They host “beer Friday’s” at Devil’s Canyon Brewing Co, one of my newest favorite places to hang out for…

California Delta | Ride With Me

Back again riding around the Delta, this time cruising along with my boyfriend on his Harley Davidson Street Glide. The route was pretty simple- head out on 84 through Sunol, breakfast in Livermore, continue up Vasco Road through the windmills, over the Antioch bridge, and onto highway 160 to Sacramento. We stopped after crossing a draw bridge…

PSA: Big Sur CLOSED

To anyone out there planning a trip up/down the coast along Big Sur: plan ahead. Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on Highway 1 cracked and continues to sink and deteriorate, leaving the bridge inaccessible for travelers wanting to take a trip along the coast. The road is only open on certain hours on the weekends to allow…

Taco Tuesday’s | El Grullense

Yesterday’s Taco Tuesday fell on Valentine’s Day, so what better place to eat with my BF than El Grullense (what can I say, I’m a cheap date)! For some reason there was traffic everywhere in the Bay Area, so by the time I got home we geared up and headed over to El Grullense. This…

California Delta | Ride With Me

Another partly cloudy day with the rain forecasted to start in the evening, so I made a post on our Litas Bay Area Facebook page asking if anyone would join me for a ride. Two older women asked if I wanted a tour of the Delta, and even though it was an hour ride for…

Tesla Road, Livermore | Ride With Me

Saturday morning, partly cloudy skies with no rain, and I wanted to ride. It was forecasted to rain in the North near Point Reyes and I just rode down to Big Sur last weekend, so I headed east. I took my normal route into Livermore, through Niles Canyon Road, and kept to the backroads through the…
