West coast ride

I flew straight to CA from NJ and spent a couple of days with my brother Don and his family. He recently bought a BMW 1200RT and has been having a great time with it. I rented a Harley (Road King for those who care about the model details) for a day and we went for a great ride. My niece Brenna rode with me and did a fantastic job even though it was her first time on a motorcycle. Maybe we passed the motorcycle bug to the next generation of Condon!
We rode from Berkeley up to Petaluma (Wrong turn somewhere!), and back across to Point Reyes and the lighthouse. From there we crossed Mt Tam via a VERY twisty pass and headed for home. It was hard to return the bike knowing I was headed to Monterey in a rental car for the week!

Maggie is very interested in Brenna's breakfast

Me and Brenna (Hey J.S., does that helmet look familiar?)On the way to Point Reyes.Can we import some of these roads to FL?That's a happy guy!The path to the lighthouse was closed... Perhaps it was a good thing!Don enjoys the view.
I saw this wreck on the way up and decided we had to stop and get some pics on the way home.I could have spent a while here!This one's for you Caryn!Don getting impatient to get back on the road .Brenna and I check out the days photos.
