Welcome friends, to the April shop ride!
This will be a ride suitable for beginners to experienced riders, on paved roads only. Some of the roads are a bit tight but take it slow and you should have no problems. We will be riding the Delta roads, which are nearly all gentle curves. There are some ferry crossings (no charge) and a bridge toll ($5, Antioch) so bring lunch and Toll money!
Departure time is 9:00 am from CalMoto Mountain View and we will swing by Tri-Valley Moto at about 9:40 am to pick up any riders who would like to start from our Livermore Store. Coffee will be ready by 8:30 at Cal and Bill will have Coffee ready for our Tri-Valley riders at 9:00am. Be gassed up and ready to leave CalMoto by 9:00 am sharp and 9:40am at Tri-Valley. We'll have a rider/safety meeting shortly before we leave.
I want to earnestly request that all riders ride within your comfort zones. Stay within the safe limits of your riding ability, and work on being the smoothest rider on the ride, not the fastest rider. True riding skill is built on a sense of smoothness, control and a sense of line, not in trying to go fast. Practice performing the smoothest possible upshifts and downshifts by good throttle control and matching engine and road speed, and experiment with slight changes in body position and weight transfer to help control the bike in the corners. For this Sunday's ride we are going to set an easy pace, and anyone who exceeds that pace and passes the leader is on his or her own. The route is rather complicated, so anyone who wants to enter it in his or her GPS should do so.
