3-27-20 Rode to Fullerton DMV this morning...



KTLA 5 Megan Telles was there! The DMVs are closed due to Coronavirus.

I have to renew my license and get a Real ID, before the DMV closed said by appt only - my license expires in April and appt is in June?!

Hope it will be open by then.



Went home, had lunch then rode out again...



Rode to the Port of LA to see the Mercy hospital ship!



KTLA 5 was there but wasn't able to get to where the van was parked.

Wow that’s cool! Going stir crazy, going for a ride today, might go look for that ship. I can’t stick with my self-imposed no riding ban. Plus, need to steal some toilet paper from my closed office.

Hope everyone is doing well. I’ve been furloughed from my day job and have become one of the rabble currently crashing the EDD website. My wife put her resume online to provide telehealth nursing service and organizations are very interested in her so hopefully we’ll stay afloat financially.

My Bonneville is still at So Cal Motorcycles. They can’t say when I’ll get it back, since they have no idea when the parts will arrive. So, using its parking spot in the garage as our quarantine spot for incoming groceries.

Adapt, improvise, overcome!

I got mine a while back. When the world gets back to normal, my advice is to fill out the application online when you make a dmv appointment. I did mine at the Westminster dmv, and with the application done ahead of time, the whole process took 30 minutes.

Happy Belated Easter!



Sorry for the late post, Suzy posted the Modjeska Easter Breakfast ride here on OCMoto in 2009, and some of us continued to go to it for the past ten years!

This year was the first year we did not make it due to Coronavirus.

Next year!

I see that.  I'll try to put up some content about what riding around here is like once it warms up a bit.

I can say that risk-wise, the freeways and streets of So-Cal are a crucible compared to the interstates and roads here.

Ride on,

Eddie! Been a while since I checked in here. Curious, how many miles you have on your SV now? :)

Checking in.  Hoping you guys are okay during all this isolation and unrest.

A few photos of the current ride.  As it was the day I picked it up, mounting and inflating the tires and as it is now.  It needed carb-work, chain and sprockets, new rotors, new headlight bulbs and rear turn signals.  Learned a lot with this one.  It now has over ten thousand miles on it since I got it. 

Riding is wonderful here.  Like living on Ortega/Hwy-39/GMR.

Be well,

J~

Hey r0ckrat, I have over 108,000 miles.

Haven't been out riding as much with this pandemic thing going on.  :P

I see you got a new ride, nice!   :29:
