Just the basic fact that most women are perverts. Plus I was nearly run over a couple times, because of their women ogling me, lol. 🙄😁😉

Keep in mind, IĎm using smilies here, to make it clear (?) that Iím joking. Their women are probably not any more perverse than any other women. 🤔😁😉

Thatís a Ď95 Killer V 500, obviously with no suspension like the Super Vs. From what I read, the cutaway gives you better crotch clearance, especially on downhills. Plus itís just way stronger than most frames, which is why itís good for touring. 👍

Back to the Pervy Women of Davis CA, I bet that's the first thing they noticed. Were their ears clearly visible?

Glad to see you're making good progress, hopefully you can make up to Chico, very nice area.

Your picture of the Davis city limits sign reminded me of some pictures I took near there while riding south.

My wife reported the fire to 911, and we just waited around to see what would happen.

Morning Doug, makes me think of all the times having to ride through smoke from purpose lit fires to clear the roadside brush throughout my trips in Latin America. This would have been the worst one, but was able to get through it holding my breath and going as fast as I could (but first waited a while for side wind to die down)

That does not look like fun. You probably undid some of the health gains accrued from several hundred miles of riding. Not to metion, smoke is bad for your complexion

Photo made it look worse, seems to me some much smaller ones were worse for smoke and heat from flames, and I really waited until wind let up., Unfortunately my ugly mug can't be blamed on brush fire smoke.
Seriously though, the truck and bus traffic belching out black crud really did end up making me sick with a cold and chest stuff. Had read of others similarly affected, and Guatemala was the worst, vehicles often in terrible shape and chucking out diesel particulates like there was no tomorrow.

Iíll have to make this quick, Iím stealing electricity, to charge my phone. 😲😁😉 Actually, thereís a big demonstration at the capitol building right now, so I should be safe. I walked through a big ole crowd, downtown.

A couple pics, mostly I wanted to point out the sea lion, right behind that lone boat, relaxing on the pier. 😎 I wouldnít think thatís very common here. 🤔 He must have swam up one of these rivers, from the ocean. Or maybe he ran away from the zoo? 🤔😁😉

Yeah, I noticed Chico on the map, and might end up there. I wasnít paying attention, & Memorial Day snuck up on me. 🙄 Iíll have to try to hang tough here a few days, to give Sacramento a fair chance. 🙂

On the positive side, Iíll probably scarf a nice tent from craigslist, on Tuesday. After the alleged holiday. 😁

Hey, are we allowed to post pics of wild turkeys here? 🤔😉 I slept near a river last night, and was being lazy this morning, and smoking a bowl, when this lady brought her babies by for a visit. I counted 7, including the pokey one. 😁😉
