On the road again. Now to Stokton and Lake Tahoe

We departed Friday, around 9:00AM.

 

The weather was not that hot. We got 94F. today on I-5 and US-99 most of the ride, but the SixSixOne we were comfortable.

We also stop at the Modesto BMW Dealer Cycle Specialsties to buy some things. Very nice people there.

Who is Elton

I was born in Brazil and moved to USA, California in 1996. Took me some time to learn the language and get into this country, but I think now I'm doing quite well. I became an American citizen in late 2007.
I love to travel and by the time I was writing this page, I had logged more them 140.000 miles on the motorcycles I have/had. My current bikes are one 2002 BMW K1200LTe and one 2003 BMW R1150GS. Also there are many more miles on my car and much more on airplane trips.
Winter I try to do Snowmobile. Summer is time for water sports (PWC) and I motorcycle year around (one of the benefits of living in sunny California)
