slow charging now in west sacramento, going to hope I can make it to Fairfield for a 50A outlet, then fast charge until I gotta leave to make it there. was pretty close to skipping the slow charge, have made that before but the disparity is 15% SoC not worth getting stranded for. people on highways really drive too fast to take it easy.

My 2014 SR has 4-20% SoC discrepancy too. 

See you there.  It's still 3 hours till departure, and others can help you top-up.  I'll be there from 8AM with my J1772-C13 and C14-C19 adapters if they help.  If you can use the direct 220 from C14 or C20, it should get you past your signalling issue.  Look for me at the north end of the mall, at the google starbucks wifi point.  Sticker-covered helmet.

2014 Zero SR, highly accessorized. 2008 Vectrix VX-1, maybe for sale, stock, very reliable.  I lost my faith in Zero with my 2011 S, but regained it with my 2014 SR.  Also, a 2001 Honda Helix, black, kept for sentimental reasons.

We're sitting in the outdoor seating by the Boudin Nordstroms and Starbucks. From the parking lot the closest access is between Nordstrom's and the Cheesecake Factory.

And the Forum is off by one hour from where we are. I posted that at 8:55 a.m. Ride starts in just over an hour.  Shadow is passing Fairfield, looks like.

Got messages that Nathanael, Jon, and Shadow are running a little late, so we'll get going a little late.

Inside the Boudin now, charging phones, using the google wifi.

Shutting down the laptop, heading to the charging/meetup site.

David and Brian & E are probably already there.

We'll wait for Nathanael and Jon but not for Shadow.  Ideally, we'll see Richard230, Chicamungo, and Shadow at Siren Canteen.

I'm at 415-735-4115 for texting purposes.

Great riding, enjoyed meeting y'all, and learned a lot. Definitely recommend the tacos.
Got home  to Livermore with 16%  charge. Would be less, but traffic on 580 was
slow in places ;)

That was fun...certainly had a different feel than a loud group of Ducatis rolling down the road does...hope everyone made it home safely.

Shadow made it! He rolled in a bit late, but we still had a good time over more food and beer.

I think we missed Chicamungo and Richard230 but everyone else made it.

tamjam, you did a great job getting us around the local roads; that was much appreciated.

I did miss most of the group, but that was me who came in even later than Shadow, sorry I don't know if I ever mentioned my username.

Unrelated, but I did send you some pictures through PM, but maybe it didn't actually send? Let me know if you didn't get it please.

Ah, we were confused about whether you were Adan or not.

I got them, thanks! Okay to post them to the wiki?
