    I pass through Bakersfield with some regularity. I'll almost certainly be going through to get on CA-178 on the way to and back from the Death Valley Daze at the end of January.

    My riding friend Steve and I stayed in Bakersfield a week ago on our way back from TX and NM, just so we could eat at Benji's. (See my ride report in the Gear section -- I was testing out my new Rick Mayer seat!) Still trying to sample all of the Basque restaurants there...

    Pyranees Cafe is fun; although Woolgrower's is our favorite. Ambience is a bit stiff, but the food is fabulous. BF to DV is a great ride, no matter which way you go. Be happy to join you for a meal if you're looking for company.

    As usual Tom, great photos.
    We rode these 'anti gravity' hills on Wednesday and on Sunday on our way to and from LA. I just love the feeling in of weightlessness in my stomach! We also rode Elkhorn Road thru the Carrizo Plain and had a blast!

    I mean no offense to monkeys. I like monkeys. Unlike that monkey-hating Lamble.

    you're lucky then, I had a gobber the size a small spaceship at ANY aperture, funny but I kept looking for it in the upper right corner of the imager then remembered the image is the resverse (upsidedown) in the imager, and sure enough, there is was in the lower right hand corner!
