Delayed post. I arrived in SF and met up with Keith around 4pm. I drove up the coast from monterey to SF, takes about an hour and half. The first section is okay but once you get to about half moon bay you're into more populated area and thus not as fun. Since Keith wasn't available till 4 I had a few hours to drive around various neighborhoods and get my bearings. Lots and lots of steep hills with stop signs, be prepared for some clutch work.
I'll be visiting here for the next ~5 days and seeing the sights. We have a number of things planned involving sea lions, alcatraz, MoMA, donald glover, cable car museum and lots of good food. The bike is parked in a secure lot nearby, $45 for the week, which is a good rate since its $20 a day normally. The advantages of a motorcycle is you can park where cars can't so they give you a better deal. I will probably go off on a few adventures of my own while keith is working during the day, maybe try the curvy lombard st and cross golden gate again when its not foggy this time around.
