Waiting to get back on the rode
I am in Sunnyvale CA I have stayed here for the last two months with a sour lag then a job working on a chip mod of a design that I made 3 years ago
On the 31 of August the bike went in to the BMW dealer to have the add-ons installed the CB is not available at this time this required two days as the hade to reorder a part that was sent back the job ended on Tuesday .all day Wednesday was used up getting ready and I was off on Friday .
Traveled up state 1 to Fort Bragg. On Saturday morning I started out on 1 but ran over a belt in the rode before leaving Fort Bragg this punctured the rear tire. It is not possible to get a motorcycle tire plugged I had to do it my self. After plugging the tire I set off to the closed dealer to get a new tire this was in Larkspur. They were closed by the time I arrived this meant a wait to Tuesday on Sunday I visited Celeste. Tuesday after the new tire it was off to Eureka. The Samoa Cookhouse is a good place to dine the soup was excellent and the rest of the meal was very good .Spent the next day looking at the old town. Thursday on to Ashland Oregon ,"Napoli Milionaria" ,then "The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus" in the Pavilion it rained the audience and a actors got wet .on Saturday after church "Richard III' . On Sunday over to Klamath Falls the up to Crater Lake (when will it next go boom) I am spending the night in Eugene.

And now a bad lag
After leaving El Centro I drove up to the Salton Sea. The Sonny Bono Salton Sea Natl. Wildlife Refuge is a strange place in late June there is a lookout over a plough field. And they are watering the desert plants the jackrabbits like it. Other places along the sea shore give off a strange look in the summer.
In Indio I stepped off a curb with my left lag to straight. I now have a hipper extended knee.
And I came back to the bay area on Friday. The tripe is on hold.

Mass at St. Jerome Church Other churches can learn from there music director it is the best that I have herd in a Catholic Church.
Then breakfast At Juniors then on to the Huntington Library, art collection and botanical gardens. I started to felt sorry for all the English family’s that had to sell of there art and books after WWI. They lost there sons in France and there assets to the tax man. It is like making the Gold Star Mothers sell the family albums to finance the government (that what governments do).
The next day I went to Marina del Ray and met with the people of Bluewater Sailing about basic keelboat sailing classes 13505 Bali Way 310 823 5545 www.bluewarersailing.com then off to San Diego Mission Bay Sportcenter has sailing classes the first weekend of the month.

On the rode
The house rescored on the 6th. It required three more days to complete my business.
On Friday I rode to Antioch, had dinner at a Mexican/Italian restaurant little?? Good food***. Saturday morning I rode along the Sacramento River to Sacramento; if you are going between the bay area and Sacramento try this rout if you have the time, tool going to Sac.
Sunday went to the railroad museum, my father in-law would have loved it old trains and tall tales about the building of the rail to the east.
Old town is a tourist site they changed the place from cheap bars and flop houses that I remember in 1959 to fancy bars and gift shops. There are still people wondering around looking for there next drink or fix, the fixes ate now strange items that they will take home and trey to remember why they bout them.
