Int'l. Female Ride Day (Sat.)

Got milk? Got a herd of water buffalo? Then you got cheese ... mozzarella in fact! Special destination + fabulous friends = recipe for a tribute to motorcycle travel and a unique culinary experience.

Inspired by Italian mozzarella di bufala, Craig Ramini uses his 100% water buffalo milk to produce handcrafted cheese in small batches. The (private) Ramini farm in Tomales, Calif. will be our club's destination for a farm tour and cheese making demo, and picnic!

Got family? They can attend, too!

FREE to all is enjoying a picnic lunch on the property, taking in the charming scenery, and visiting the buffalo (yes, you can pet the calves!) and other animals on the farm. The cheese shop will be open, too.

COST for the tour and cheese making demo and tasting is $20 each person, payable to Craig at 12:30 p.m. Our private event will begin at 1:00 p.m. and last 45-60 mins.

So ... you have a choice ... ride + picnic, or ride + picnic + tour. We anticipate that some folks will ride to Tomales, picnic, and then head off early, on their own.

Meetup: 9:30 a.m. with a full gas tank, a picnic lunch, and full protective gear

Safety talk: 9:45 a.m.

KSU: 10:00 a.m.

Gas, rest stop: t.b.d.

Route: We'll take slab from SJ to SF, then enjoy part prairie with greenery and part twisty on redwood-lined roads through Marin and Sonoma counties en route to Tomales.

Arrival to Ramini Farm: around 1:00pm

Private demo: 1:00 p.m.

Route Out

I have had issues with the new Google map so I have posted the url and a pic. of the route. Please email me if they are different.

      Well, that was a delayed reaction. See what happens when you partake in the wacky tobaccy. For all you gossipers, that was a joke.

    oooooweee!! 350 miles total for me coming from Monterey area. With no faring, i was beat up and tired when I got home. But still a super cool ride and i am still reminiscing about it all!! :)

      Well done Deb. Such a cool bike.

    What a great day! Our group was fun, outgoing, and ready for anything.
    I had no idea that water buffalo were so cuddly, they came running when called by name. My thanks to everyone who showed up and enjoyed the day with us.
    BTW, I’m coming up with a route to bypass the 80 traffic jam section.

    • Jim K.

      Yup...Good find. Was interesting place to go! As for the traffic, it's a way of life around here. We're surrounded by water. Bottlenecks traffic and limits our choices...unless we can grow wings. The only advantage is the motorcycle concentric lane sharing!

      1 · May 5, 2014

    Fun day and a great destination. Good call Shelley. It was nice to see you all. Hope the ride back was good. Great variety of bikes. Fun to see.

    I was planning on going to the Bay Area Motorcycle Superfest in Pleasanton. I am conflicted now.

    April 27, 2014

    • Jim K.

      That's easy! Support women riders! Go Sat with us and the bike fest on Sunday. It's a 2 day event, now that you mentioned it...I might go. :)

      1 · April 29, 2014

    • Triker T.

      Jim. I only had today off and wanted to go last year but couldn't so I chose BAMS. To save you a bunch of money tomorrow I would not even consider going. It was 20 at the gate and 8 to park and there was only one building with a few vendors and a bike show. It would have been ok if it had not cost money. I would rather opt for Street Vibes Springtime for free.

  • Jim K.

    Shelley or Milo - I was thinking, it's redundant for me to drive to SJ just to drive to SF. Is there a place I can meet you and a time? Maybe The Gas station at the light, on the curve on 19th Ave before SF State U? or the Shell Station on NB 19th at Lincoln before the park?

    May 2, 2014

    • Jim K.

      Anybody in the north SF area or central bay want to meet me at the parking lot on the Grat Hwy 1 described above in SF to intercept the group as they are riding thru? Let me know and be there at 10:30.

    Whew-hoo! I'll go! I like these rides. Let the women lead, it's your day to shine! My VROD is now sitting in my driveway on my lift jack in pieces. I have to change out the voltage regulator due to error codes and the battery and check engine lights coming on. It's buried deep in the bike. I went to the Harley blogs and talked to a few experts. Bought a regulator on ebay and just waiting for delivery. Should get in by Fri (hopefully). Good news is it'll take me a hour or so to re-assemble. I've got a complete MC garage set up at home!

    this may be a silly question (this ride is new to me)...will they have lunch available to buy or do we bring our own or?? thanks!

    2 · April 29, 2014

    • Milo

      Jim, thanks for helping out with the explanation. Here is the latest. We will be stopping at Tomales deli-cafe to pick up lunch to go. It's very close to the ranch. We will also be making other cheese factory stops on the way out. The last item, the owner would like everyone to participate in the $20 tour and cheese tasting.

      1 · April 30, 2014

    • Jim K.

      Good to know...that wasn't covered. I'm just gonna brown bag it from home. The rest of it sounds pretty cheesy to me...:)

      2 · April 30, 2014

    I'd like to tag along for the ride up to the picnic spot, then I'll continue on up to Manchester for an overnight there.

    Anyone have a backseat to offer and a helmet too? Experienced passenger from a past life - pre divorce ages ago. Want to feel the excitement again!

    January 1, 2014

    • Shelley

      Hi Pamela ... May I please suggest you to buy your own helmet? Not only is this a personal item (hygienic reasons), but this bucket that protects your brain should fit properly. Go see Phil at Road Rider in San Jose on Monterey Road. Tell him I sent you from Four Corners Motorcycle Club.

    I'll support the cause. I was on the one last year and the year before...had a blast! Plenty of gals ride now a days and I support them...and I think it empowers you all!!!
