Ride to The Quail Motorcycle Gathering (California) May 6
« on: May 01, 2017, 10:05:03 PM »

Anyone interested?  Brian and I are meeting in Los Gatos, taking the 17/Summit/Highland/Buzzard Lagoon/Eureka Canyon/Coralitos route.  It's a rough road, but fun, and typically includes non-spooking of deer and sneaking up on pelatons of bicyclists.  Don't try it in a car.

Not a cheap destination, but very cool restored motorcycles, and also the bleeding edge stuff.  Last time we got to see Energica and Lightning in person, complete with their CEOs.

People coming from other location, want to meet up there?

It's like flying, but with more traction.  And none of that Z-axis complexity.

Lost my faith in Zero with my 2011 S, but regained it with my 2014 SR.  Diginow SCv2 changed my SR from a fun ride to primary transport.

2014 Zero SR, accessorized. 2008 Vectrix VX-1 NiMH. 2001 Honda Helix.

I am. It looks like tickets are $75 pre-sale and 95 the day of.

Awesome.  With superchargers, nobody will need to hog the two J-plugs at the venue.

Well, they're like a half mile from the venue, but it's a nice walk.

I was also thinking about visiting Moto-Talbott in Carmel Valley, or Motorcycle Museum in Monterery the same trip. 

I'll DM you, and let's set up a texting group (google hangouts and google maps temporary location sharing has been working well for us recently, if you do those things).

Awesome, it'll be great to see Killroy and Brian on Saturday.  Anyone else, don't let lack of rapid charging scare you off, we can figure something out.  Show us your AUX port or something.
