After taking a rest from motorcycling to have and rais kids, I got back into it in 2001
Ride Report: San Mateo International Motorcycle Show, November 18, 2012 Leaving home, the sun was shining and it was in the high 40’s. By the time I got to Sebastopol, it was cloudy, and the temperature had dropped to 41 degrees. Leaving Santa Rosa I climbed the Cotati grade into the clouds. By the time I reached San Rafael, the sun had reappeared, and the temperature risen to 60 degrees. There were plenty of bikes at the show, although the overall attendance did appear to be down. All the big guys were displaying their wares. CanAm, Harley, and Yamaha all had demo rides. There were 3 insurance companies that had a big presence The small independent venders were almost totally absent, with only one ear plug booth. Audio was in though as there was at least 6 different helmet communication manufactures there. A custom bike show was evident. I took a photo of one that couldn’t be avoided. I wondered if it glowed in the dark.
