Don VSP, our "official" Norcal tour guide blog:

Please go here, Don did a great job, and KC really took some good pics to!

Kilo wanted to visit the Golden Gate Bridge, Battery Spencer. It is one of the most gorgeous spots and views anywhere! Absolutely majestic!

But to put it in perspective, Mark Twain once said "the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco", that is to quantify the weather. GBG

Yup, foggy, windy and cold! True to form!

So we staged at McD's in Navato, had eight bikes, Rick, David J, Bruce brought the ashes, KC, Redbeard. nite lite and the Cranky dude. nite lite led the group as this was his stomping grounds and knew exactly where we were going.

Another shot of the bikes...

If you squint, you can see Alcatraz in the fog over the northern end of Golden Gate Bridge.

KC, Howard Don VSP, David J, and Bruce.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this is worth 3 - cold, windy and foggy! GBG

Bruce, KC, Rick, Howard and David J, we're site seeing and getting ready for the event.

Bruce got the honor, you can see a light trail leaning left as the wind took the ashes into the air...

Some landed on the ground, so Bruce grabbed a handful and gave them a boost, if you look up and to the left, you will see some spots in the fog, headed.... who knows where.

Enjoy the journey Kilo! God Bless and Healing Prayers for those left behind.

The fog cleared a bit so I took one more shot of the bridge before riding over it and back home thru San Francisco. Nice ride, glad to pay respects, and it was nice to see everyone again!
