1098 Chase up to Twin Peaks and Down
Chasing Chuck up to Twin Peaks. Soundtrack by Scott Rolf "Espresso"
2009 - one of many trips through the city. There are twisty roads all around the neighborhoods of SF. Get out to the coast and wind down into Pacifica and out to Half Moon Bay - run up to 35 on Skyline and slip in and out of the redwoods. North over the Golden Gate you climb into the marin headlands and up to Mount Tam. My favorite quick run is over 17 to Santa Cruz - when it is crowded with summer traffic i jump onto Hwy 9 out of Saratoga and down through Boulder Creek and Felton. My first MotoGP bus ride into the track i sat and talked with people who came from all over the US and the world - they would borrow or rent bikes to ride over 17 and 9 and down 1 into Big Sur...... the world knows about our scenic roads and we live right here.
Ducati US is in Cupertino - the current president lives in Santa Cruz and commutes 17 to work on a MultiStrada. Living the dream.
