Day Three to Bodega bay

After dragging myself out of bed my wife took pictures of the sea front part of the hotel, and we got ready to go to Bodega Bay north of San Francisco.

We continued on route 1 and then took route 9 to San Jose. It was a great road for bikes and while filling up with fuel we met another biker who was riding a 20th Anniversary GL-1500 named John who is a retired police officer and rides his bike every day and only missed three days this year not riding.

The fuel pumps here have both unleaded fuel as well as diesel on the same pump, so after I paid for the fuel I pressed on the 91 octane button and nothing came out of the nozzle.

Then I realized that I had picked up the diesel nozzle instead of the unleaded nozzle, luckily no diesel went in to the tank and I used the right nozzle avoiding cutting the trip short.

We reached San Jose to visit the Winchester Mystery House and had lunch then continued to San Francisco and crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, then got back on route 1 along the coast for three hours until we reached Bodega Bay.

Welcome to my Journals......

Ever since I have been traveling on two wheels I haven't written any thing down regarding where I went, who I saw, or how I did it.

Most of my travels are with friend who I thank for letting me tag along, learn, and grow.

This journal will have two aspects the first a record of my future travels, and maybe some back dated ones. And the other will be my thoughts about traveling on a motorcycle, what gear I have tried, and what methods I feel are the best for traveling.

Please feel free to drop me a note regarding motorcycle travel, I will be happy to reply.
