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.

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

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.

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

Yeah of course! I also added in the measurement under the "lift" section. I didn't know how to write the information well, so I'll leave that to you. https://www.cyclegear.com/accessories/trackside-rear-paddock-stand This is the rear stand I have too, if you want you to add that to the wiki.

Sorry I missed it.  It was a possibility up to the last minute, but then my wife's plans for taking the kids to a friend's house fell through, and I got bogged down in the usual toddler/baby weekend quagmire.  Kind of par for the course these days, but disappointing nonetheless.

> Sorry I missed it.  ...

It was a blast.  First crowd did the ride, seven bikes, nine people, then most of them left and then two stragglers showed up and we had a whole second chat session.  Awesome to meet you all, and awesome Shadow made it eventually, what a ride adventure.

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

Thanks again for taking the routing load off my mind.  My role as the rear-view-mirror max-visibility tail worked out great.

2014 Zero SR, highly accessorized. 2008 Vectrix VX-1, 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.

It was my pleasure to lead the route. Plenty more where that came from. Lots of nice roads in the West Marin area.

Did I pass anyone here on the board on my way home along Panoramic? Saw someone in a red Aerostitch suit on what looked like a DS when I did a quick double-take.

@togo hero status hosting me for the night. The adventure continues... worth all the trouble for what was my first ever moto group ride, just lovely!

Brand new red aerostitch?  Yeah, that would have been Shadow!  After you guys left we had a whole second party!

Next ride April 22, this time Los Gatos to Scotts Valley, Rumble Fish, Zero Factory

http://electricmotorcycleforum.com/boards/index.php?topic=6778.msg54737#msg54737

I posted it on the main news forum, since, really, pretty much any electric motorcyclist is invited, not just Zero owners, and certainly not just 2013+ owners.  Indeed if a gasoline e-curious lady or gentleman were to show up, I don't think we'd turn them away.

For those of you who F'book:

Not planning a ride to Alice's this month, see this discussion at

https://www.facebook.com/events/263722974073886/?active_tab=discussion

OTOH, at least one person seemed like they wanted to do Alice's anyway.  Don't let me stop you.  The traditional date, third Saturday, is open, tho it is too close to Taxes for my comfort.
