Gold Country Ride

Went for an easy 200 mile or so ride in the gold country. Stopped at a little place in Downieville, CA and there were 10 McLaren 720s cars. Not sure how the tour was arranged, but I spoke with a lovely couple and they said everyone was from Denver. Not too many times you pull into a parking lot in the middle of nowhere and see almost $3m in cars parked.

They also thanked us for having quiet motorcycles.

The driver started this one up so the bystanders could hear the engine. Amazing sound!

The color on this one was amazing!

I think black one in this shot is a Senna Model. All carbon fiber to the tune of $1.2m

Certainly wasn't expecting anything like this in downtown Downieville.

Thanks for sharing! This is so cool!

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

I wonder where they park the helicopter they hire to scout for law enforcement during their runs through the twisties.
