Thanks for the lift Nurtaeff. I'm back East (PA) for a week helping my brother do some work to his house and have been away from the computer mostly.

All others in the NorCal area, we have a few interested in planning a ride, it'd be great to get a few more to join up. The upcoming ride on April 27 starting in Modesto is a good start. If that works well, we can think about other rides.

Thanks YamahaPat for jumping in.

Two thoughts here:

1) YamahaPat, Sorry for the delay in responding. From Antioch, I would probably come across the Delta on 4. This ride starts at BRAAP Yamaha in Modesto. They are close to 99. How about meeting at a Starbucks off 99 near the Stockton airport? Address is: 4895 S, East Frontage Road, CA-99, Stockton, CA 95215. Then we can go down to BRAAP and get started.

For others in the area, we'd like to see you guys/gals make this and represent! This should be a fun day with good food. A link to the flyer is: https://ibb.co/wBKnbhH.

2) There's a plan developing to get a meet up and ride going in the Redding area and take Highway 36 to the coast during the 3rd week of August. Making that a Saturday, that would either be the 10th or the 17th. If interested, please respond. Maybe we make it an over-nighter?

If we meet towards the end of August, I should be able to make it. As I may want to take a lot of photos, it may work that I ride with the group, but ride after that for the photos when I'll need to stop much more. I imagine I'll hang around for up to a week.

I hope some of you that are familiar with the area will know or check out all the side roads that branch off 36. I guess there are a lot that are pretty interesting. Not that I mind exploring, but it's not always so good with a group of riders. Better if the leader(s) know where they're going.

I'm a picture guy too. Sometimes my friends think I stop too often but I get amazing photos. Lets get some on the West Coast get together.

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

So any progress from anybody? I'm leaving in about 10 days on a 9,000 miler and won't be back and able to do any commenting here until the first of August. Has anyone tightened up their plans? Is anyone familiar with the motels in Redding? I presume some of you that are going solo would be willing to share a room. I could do that. If someone wants to stay for a total of up to a week, I may be up to that so I can go back to some areas for more photos.

On the photos, I usually stop along the way to take shots. It takes me about a minute to stop, pull out camera, shoot, store camera back in jacket, and get going. Most all photos I take are from the bike. I know some riders are into hot dogging type riding, others into pretty spirited riding. Then you have your moderate riding speed and with that is photo possibility. The poke along riding can offer photo time too, but that's including stops at everything along the way. I usually prefer the moderate.

Any thoughts here?

I would be open to just about anything within a few hours of Sacramento. Anything but Labor Day weekend. How about two weeks before Labor Day the 17th and 18th of August. Are we going for an overnight or just a long days ride? I figure if we start with a date anything can happen.

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

Let's see. Sacramento is 167 miles to Redding. Grand Junction is 946 miles. So I'd rather not do just a day's ride.

I would probably want to stay for several more days if there are more routes of interest around there. Plus, as I said, if some riders want almost no stops, I will probably have some do-overs. I don't really mind doing a route more than once. In fact, I take my favorite route around Grand Junction at least a dozen times each summer.

If we want to set a tentative date of Aug. 17-18, that would work for me. Not a lot of time to get caught up, but doable.

I'm sorry I didn't catch the Colorado connection. The eastern Sierras have a lot of great rides. I don't think Hwy 36 is set in stone.

Riding is not just what I do but who I am.

Hwy. 36 is the primary reason I want to go there.
