San Francisco is the Meca of Motorcycling

It's been a while, so I'd thought I'd do a quick recap:

Helmets are the law, but almost everyone wears Aerostich or full suits. Even the Harley guys were gear, there are no squids here.

The roads out here are incredible in any direction.

The weather is always between 50-75, so it's never uncomfortable to ride.

People will ride anything and everything, I've seen more 70's-80's Hondas than new R1s.

In Chicago it's a status symbol for most, out here it's a way of life.

Glad you're liking SF, PJ.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Maybe that's why most guys out there like to wear the full suits to look like Trinity from the Matrix
