Title: Some Napa Valley wine country shots
Post by: Spurlock on January 23, 2018, 11:12:44 PM
The sun came out today so I headed over the hill for a nice wine country loop. There is always lots to see, including roadside art.

The mustard is just starting to bloom in the vineyards, and will be much more dramatic in coming weeks.

Last winter's heavy rains left some roads officially closed, but sneaking around the barricades rewards with untraveled paths....

....and private views from mountain tops.

Back on open roads the CB-1 was in its element, swooping through tree shaded curves as if on rails.

Home is just around the corner, it was another great day on two wheels.

Bastard!  It's cold, windy and raining up here in the PNW and I haven't been on 2 wheels for months now!

Ha ha, actually I'd prefer we get some of your rain down here, we're way behind so far this season. But when it's dry I might as well go riding!!
