More Riding with the SFMC

Sunday was a big day for us … Cary had been road racing with the AFM for the past three seasons, and I had joined her last season …

That prevented us from riding with the SFMC on the sixteen club rides put on each riding season between March and October …

We met Road Captain Ben at the club at 8 am, and were soon on our way to Belmont to attend a Doc Wong riding clinic, a Bay Area motorcycling institution. Doc has been teaching people to be better riders for over 20 years …

We saddled up and Kevin led us a merry chase to the San Jose Dons Motorcycle Club’s Spring Run at a beautiful family ranch in Gilroy …

We all ate well, and bombed home before dark … a good time and thanks to Doc Wong and the San Jose Dons Motorcycle Club for a great Sunday … and to Road Captain Ben for planning and leading a wonderful ride …
