San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge.  It was an adventure riding over it on my motorcycle.  It was so windy I couldn’t hold a straight line.  I must say it was a little nerve racking to say the least!

This was taken on the North side of the bridge on the West side looking down.  By the time I got up here, I was only able to get a glimpse of the bridge for a few seconds due to the clouds/fog.  It was very windy day.

It was a pretty nice day here in San Francisco.  Too bad the bridge got fogged in when I went up the hill to try and get a photo looking down.

A beautiful day for a ride in Southern California.

The above photos were taken in Morro Bay, CA on my latest ride.  The home of “Morro Rock” located just offshore.   According to Wikipedia, it’s a 581-foot “Volcanic Plug”.  I’m not sure what that means exactly, but it sure is impressive.
