Green spear time…

Bugs and I took off this morning to check out the annual asparagus festival they hold in downtown Stockton. We drove through town looking for the “biker alley” an area usually reserved for motorcycles. We didn’t find it.

So we drove around the event site and it looked pretty much the same as it has been the past few years. We continued on driving…

Something about the new location doesn’t seem right. I think I like the old location off of 8 mile road and about 1 mile from the house. The area was much more green with trees and had the outdoor festival atmosphere. The current location is right smack in downtown, though the river port adds a nice touch.

New place to grub…

I’ve been taking the scoot out for lunch several times a week. Since I’m on the bike I typically go by myself. This means anywhere that looks good to eat I just park and give it a try. I found this Teriyaki place not too far from my building. It turned out it is owned by Filipinos and they serve some down home grub. I’m going to work my way down the menu, I’m at menu item 3 :) One thing that deserves mentioning is that they have motorcyle only parking right out front!

Weekend at Union Square…

Even though the hotel does not have all the nice extras it does have one great qualily, location. We are walking distance to all the great shopping retailers in the aresa. Most of them are high dollar stores that we just pass and say “nice display”.

We had stayed in this hotel awhile back. They have this baby grand piano in the lobby. A kid wearing a backpack was playing classic Mozzart. It was amazing watching this kid jam along. I asked the hotel personel about him and they said he knowlonger comes around anymore. I guess he found another piano to play for free.

One thing that is tough about a lot of the San Francisco hotels is the No Smoking rules. Most of them are smoke free buildings so you’ll have to take an elevator downstairs and stand outside to burn one. Poor Bugs (me too) had to go outside.

All in all it was another great weekend in the city…

Still going…

I’m still riding the scoot everyday to work. There had been some days where it was super cold, even for me. I think the coldest yet was 23F. Even though I’m completely geared up the cold cuts in once I’m on the open highway. I can’t wait for the warmer months to come!

It seems like I’ve seen quite a bit more accidents too. These are not the little fender benders but the flipped over totally caved in roof variety. I’m sure out of all the ones I’ve seen this year someone was probably still in the car. Everyone needs to just slow down…

I’ve been working for my new company a whole month now :)

Easy Rider Show…

Vincent and I went to go to the Easy Rider show held in the Sacramento Convention Center every year. On our way up I-5 we stopped and helped out a biker that ran out of gas. We took him to the closes gas station for petro and brought him back to his scoot. One thing about bikers, you always help one another out because you’ll never know when you’ll be needing it.

Show was great as usual, Vincent picked up an interesting shirt…
