September Ride (Foothills Madness 2)

Today was another ride with The Sky Island Riders.

Howard called the ride Foodhill Madness 2.

I rode it on my Stella, Sean was there on his Riva 180.

Howard led on his Stella, It was nice riding with another hand-shift bike.

I have to say this was one of the more difficult rides that I've done, There was a lot of technically challenging riding due to the constant changes in elevation and all the curves. The Stella ran like a Champ for it altho at one point in time it started to smell a little funny. Later I learned that Howard had the same problem, We think it was because we were both coasting with the clutch in and may not have been getting enough oil into the engine or were wearing the clutch.
