What do you currently ride: sport bike, dualsport, cruiser?

Just sold my ST3 Ducati. I do Track Days on my 1125R. My most resent love affair is with a little VFR800. Does nothing perfect, but everything well. (2015) Well, been a long time since that update. 2 BMWs, a Victory 8ball, Harley Heritage, and a Spider since then.... But still riding and loving the Central Valley! (2016) Time flies when your having fun! Ended the year with a 2012 KLR traded straight for a 2004 FJR1300, I knew I was going to have a bad day on that rocket, so I upgraded to a 2014 Low Rider. Ahhhh the memories. Cruz'n and Chill'n. But I must admit, more cornering clearance than any Harley I ever had! Sweet.

How many years or miles have you been riding: street, dirt?

Experienced with 35 years in the saddle. (2015) 41 now :) (2016) Still going, but slowing..... 42 years in the saddle, Oh the stories I could tell.

What kind of rides are you most interested in? (Examples: spontaneous short rides, planned all day excursions, trips, etc. )

Spontaneous short rides are the best! But when I do go on a long ride we will see the sun come up again before its over! I haven't made a ride with the group in a while. Every time I show up its 150 miles round trip before the Meet Up ride begins.... but I'm looking forward to this summer!!!!

Where do you live (e.g., Bay Area, North Bay, South Bay, etc)

Los Banos

How did you hear about GroupRides Forum: thru calendar, word of mouth, meetup, other forums, etc?

I think Big John told me...... Or the internet..... Or was it my palm reader????


Just a very regular old dude that started his passion with 2 wheels on a Tecumseh 5hp Mini Bike in 1970. Since then, just working, riding, racing, adventuring and repeating.

What Steve is saying about this Meetup Group

2008: This group has great potential. I will be out of the loop for a couple of weeks (work related), but when I return I will be very active in trying to get folks together for some short rides and a couple of great adventures! Also some track days coming up in October at Laguna Seca. See you guys in a couple of weeks! 2011: I knew the group had lots of potential. Today I saw it first hand. What a great bunch of folks! Cool bikes too!
