We have an office in Emeryville, seen those beautiful views many times from my company van. I have also seen Apeman's bike on the street with the other bikes in his pic. Know right where it is:whistle:
Wow, nice pix Apeman! What floor is your office on?
My office is on the 38th floor of 44 Montgomery Street. Not a bad place to do my business.
Z1rick, I am happy you noticed my bike. The KZ750H gets lots of comments from fellow bike commuters. It is about the cleanest KZ around downtown SF in daily use. I sometimes ride my KZ750E, but for some reason I like the vibe of the KZ750H better, plus it was my first KZ. (We all understand the nostalgic allure of our first experience.) We should get the NorCal KZriders together. I believe there are enough of us now to make it more than a solo event. Maybe a weekend breakfast meet and short ride?

Petaluma and Truckee, CA -- member since Jan. 23, 2003;
PREVIOUS KZs: 1980 KZ750H with 108,000 miles; 1980 KZ750E with 28,000 miles; and KZ750H street/cafe project, all sold a few years back.
This is what I do for fun, not for work. It is art, with a little engineering thrown in.
I have a company provided truck for possible after hours service, so no commuting to here. I do ride out to the farm frequently. Often I need the pickup to do something else so I don't ride as much as I'd like.
Nates vintage bike axiom:Riding is the reward for time spent wrenching. Murphys corollary:Wrenching is the result of time spent riding.
I think you can only ride your bike to work in Chicago to be considered a "Dailey" rider, no?
It seems that's a combination of daily and Daley (Chicago's long running mayor)
So, yes, I am a "Dailey" commuter. Since riding my KZ to work my commute has gone from a 45min bus ride to 10min door to door.
I do the 6 mile suburban run every day it is not too cold or raining. I sometimes swap the bike for the truck at lunch, if storms are coming in. As for the "business casual" thing, I wear my dockers, shirt, and tie, add boots. Riding jacket, helmet, gloves & backpack - all shockingly color-co-ordinated to the bike. On Fridays, it's Hawaiian shirt day! I need to get some over-pants, as I am conerned if I have to put it down, them dockers ain't doin squat for me.
How many folks on here use their KZ as a daily commuter to work?
That's what wives are for!
So that means you are barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen?
I ride to work about once a week, but parking in The Loop is a pain, I have free parking across the street from my building till 4pm, then I have to go stick it in a metered area, but since they switched to the Printing receipt system, I have no where to display the receipt, therefore I get tickets, then have to contect them, its all not worth the pain in the butt, SO I take the EL with 2 blocks of walking.
Here was the view this morning on the way to the platform.
