Moto Gussi V50 Mk2

I saw this Moto Guzzi in the Town of Sonoma the other day. It's a strange thing but I see a lot of interesting bikes in Sonoma. This bike is a V50 Mk 2, which I think was made between 1979 and 1981.
This bike spoke to me from the first instant that I saw it. What it said is that with some cleaning, polishing and a little paint it would be a very cool motorcycle.

KFOG Kaboom

Saturday, Marie and I headed for Mendocino. The weather was warmer and we hoped the fog would hold off. We stopped in Guerneville for lunch. I checked my cell phone and found that my friend Davc had called and asked if we would like to go on his boat to the KFOG Kaboom.

KFOG is a San Francisco radio station and the event is an outdoor concert on the docks with a great fireworks show afterward. About 350,000 people show up for the concert and fireworks. The event has been going on for about 14 years. We changed plans and headed south.

We met Dave at the marina and were soon aboard Dave's boat and headed along the San Francisco water front. We passed the Bay Bridge and anchored around sunset.
The fireworks were awesome and the company great. I'm sure glad Dave called.
