Welcome from northern Ca. I have a 2011 impact blue and just bought my wife a 2013 pearl white last Saturday. We ride as far south as the bay area and some times San Diego, San Bernardino and big Bear mountains but usually Mendocino, Fort Brag, Upper Lake, Yosemite, Tahoe, Truckee, Lassen, Shasta and the Redwoods are our favorite destinations. If you ever want to come up north let me know and we can hook up.:thumb: Oh and congrats on the new bike.
