A beautiful spring day in Marin County it's been today; a perfect day for jaunt through the well regarded twisties of Mt. Tamalpais.

I packed the dog and a camera and had an excellent morning after my wake-up triple shot espresso.

nice shots, love the sky. Car looks way better with just the GT air dam, nothing stacked (if that's what's going on? anyway, looks piles better than it has before)

The wife and I got married on Mt Tam in 94'. It was a foggy day so we went back a day or two later and hung out in the sun by ourselves.

I'll probably say this every time when I see pics like this but I need to get back to that coastal line, with Marseille - Monaco following right behind Highway 1 is definately my favorite road I've ever ridden. Love it. Would be even more epic to do that in my 242 :nod:

Yuppppppp!!!!!!
:-D

Was a little alarmed when I got home and discovered a light dripping of both motor oil and coolant...both very clean.

The oil pan needed a lil tightening on just a couple passenger side bolts and the upper radiator outlet is broken.

No breakdowns or failures on the drive, which is fortunate...I just need to swap out my radiator.

It's actually the first time I made this drive in a car...always before on my road bike for my routine 50-miler.

After the drive, I honestly can't tell you which is more fun, the bike or the 242, so I choose....BOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks way better than it did a year ago!

It will drive better with a TrueTrac. I am going to miss the roads here, so many great places to drive. It looks like there's some good stuff in Tennessee too, I hope it's true.
