    If you're one of these...

    Plenty of other states have similar problems. This isn't a "California sucks" rant nor a place for one. I have no intention of leaving California either, as what you state is grossly inaccurate in the first place. Got any more excuses for BS behavior?

    If you're one of these...

    This rant was also exclusive to other riders. Drivers who do it are extremely rare. Other motorcyclists are extremely common. Why wave at drivers that see you? I'd be waving constantly. The only thing I wave at other riders that pull that BS is my middle finger.

    Around here, it is almost exclusively other motorcyclists. Drivers are easy to deal with.

    If you're one of these...

    If you're a rider that buzzes, cuts off, passes too closely, or is otherwise a jackass to other riders, FU. I don't care what you ride or how cool you think you are, FU. I also don't care if you "wave" or "flash a peace sign" after doing it, FU. If this offends you, perhaps consider how you...

    How to wreck your motorcycle without being on it

    Yes, it is closed due to fire damage and a washout or two. The problem sections show up on Google Earth, in the August 2019 photography. Los Angeles County also shows it closed on their site with no date of opening.

    How to wreck your motorcycle without being on it

    That particular location is just east of Kanan Road. Otherwise known as "The Snake" and is well known for being an idiot magnet.

    How to wreck your motorcycle without being on it

    I'm sorry, but what was the expected result there? You have a company that will gladly take "action shots" while you ride there, in addition to the already high levels of stupidity. Let's show off for the camera and the people watching! The location is also well known for such stupidity. I've...

    Black CBR650F in San Diego?

    I saw a black CBR650F in the North Park area of San Diego today parked on a residential street. Anyone from here? Bike looked in decent shape and was all black, not a shiny black though.

    Long ride today. 265 mile loop from home to Palm Desert and back, plus some extras. Tried out the selfie stick.

    Odd experience today

    I went for a long ride today which was a lot of fun. What wasn't fun was having the bike stall at speed many miles from services. After pulling the bike to the shoulder and shutting it off, I took a look to see if there were any issues. Not seeing or hearing any, I tried to restart the engine...

    Who is allowed to ride your motorcycle?

    No one really. If something goes wrong, I'm on the hook for it regardless and I'd potentially be out of a vehicle.

    All 650's What did you do with your 650 today?

    Well, went into the office for the only time this month and rolled over 20,000 miles on my 2018. Still runs great! I'm going to miss seeing a 1 in front of the mileage. I also got my loan APR reduced quite a bit, so I can pay it off quicker and cheaper.

    Comment by 'sdmichael' in item '2018 Honda CBR650FA and Full Gear'

    The tail is stock. All I got was the Honda rear seat cowl, from Honda, which is the only non-stock item on the bike.
