So this guy on a black Harley Sportster looking bike sneaks up behind me and starts honking. All I heard was honking as i split the carpool lane. I wasn't going slow so it surprised me. Soon as I realized it was a bike I found my moment and tucked inyo traffic and let him by. He passed then turned back to give a look. He had his flashers on too.
We both were now on the tail of a motorcycle that was going kind of slow. He starts laying on the horn again. This motorcycle for what ever reason took a bit longer to move over  so the guy gives him the finger after passing him. So for some dunb reason I decide to show this brash SOA wanna be my headlight in his mirror whilst laying on my horn every now and then. He's a bit of a madman honking at cars holding him up. 5pm traffic. He finally blazes over 4 or 5 lanes of traffic to transition to the 110 fwy.
The very next day he is back on my six hazards flashing rudely laying on his horn. So stupidly I brake check gently and he splits me splitting passing on the inside like Harry fluffing Houdini. I am honestly impressed he didn't get us both killed. He turns and flips me off. Ok. Yah. I wave him to come back over to me. I want to say something to him. Not sure what. He bolts and exits at the 110 again. No hot pursuit or anything. He won clearly I was done.
The very next day. I decide enough with his ass hattery. When he comes by I will move over and give him the tip o the hat gesture. So i am paying particular close attention to my rear view. I see him but he keeps hanging back. Ok. Suit yourself buddy. A few moments later I see a black shape shoot across my front wheel and pass. He cut off a car just to pass me on the skinny while risking himself and me the the car he cut in behind didn't stop suddenly. I don't scare easily so I just maintain my pace and act like i didn't even see him. To be honest I feel sort of bad that he is bound to learn a hard lesson soon.
The very next day I check all the parking lots at work to see if this guy works at the same plant. Also to give him the damn lead going home. No luck finding the bike. But on the way home i am so consumed by this guy I almost am taken out by a driver lunging into the carpool lane through me. I brake. She balks. I move on not even upset with her. My fault. I am riding unfocused and pre occupied and should have seen her coming. I didn't.
Next day and every day since I take a new route home. The reward is it is a much safer less busy route.
What would you guys do?

Temecula is a great town. I wanted to buy a big ranch in that area during the recession. My work is all out here in Torrance and ElSegundo refineries. Love that Pala area as well. Good luck.

Hey. I am shopping for a dual sport and some really good deals pop up in that area. Maybe i could bribe you to be my eyes in temecula check one or two bikes for me. Consider it a finders fee. Just thinking out loud.

Eagles established the run early on. I think that gave them an offensive edge by taking pressure off the QB and receivers. Patriots have the superior passing game but Phili DBs did an excellent job at controlling the damage. Had Gronks number the first half. There is always so much dirty play in the back field. It just comes down to who conceals it from the refs better. Did you see Gronks big flop? Haha you would have thought he was hit by a 45 cal slug the way his arms flew up in the air and flew over on his back. But that's how you get tbe refs to start looking. It worked too.

I will be honest. It was a great game because the referees did their jobs and let the players do theirs. The only real bias i noted came from the commentators one of whom struck me as absurdly in favor of the Patriots. I had no real favorite of the two teams. They both played their asses off and showed why they were there. Patriots more talented and experienced Eagles more determined and yes lots of dirty play that was so well concealed we only really see it on playback and in slow motion. Refs are not going to change a touchdown call unless absolutely compelled to by overwelming evidence they were wrong in the video playback. The commentators are not paid referees. Should keep their oppinions in their pants.

I think some of their employees are paid depending on what they do. Others just work for the track time and social experience.

Two 1998. Yamaha waverunners 760cc 2 stroke.  He paid $3500 for both 7mos ago. Includes trailer and good registration.   They both run well.   Have new batteries and spark plugs.   Plus all new gear, life jackets etc..
They could use a good clean and polish. Which I plan to give them before placing them on CL.
My tennants are needing to unload these as credit for back rent. I will end up with them one way or the other.
Feel free to pm me with questions. Will likely have them at my house this weekend.

$2500 obo  :42:

I used to enjoy the AMA sanctioned rallies back in the late 80's. I was a lone rider and with no social media back then and a busy work load it was a great way to meet other riders. Oatstanding way to discover new back roads and destinations.
I will probably do the Central Coast ride this year. My other riding friends haven't planned or followed through with any road trips lately.

I am looking for a dual sport as we speak, type. LABA2V is on my radar now. Yet another reason to train and ride.
Hey we need a Husky emogee. I may be picking one up.

Nice. Well except for the fatality part. I am at work and likely won't have days off for a while. I will be looking for a ride if they mess up and give me a day.

Not sure what my weekend work schedule is yet. Cannot commit yet.

Just back from another awesome OcotilloWells post xmas camp and ride. Dustiest trip in 6 years. Late afternoon was completely dust bowl time as every body headed back to their camp sights before dark and the breeze fell slack. We head out there every year with several other families and it never fails to rekindle that flame for riding before the New Year. This years resolution is simple. More quality rides with quality people.
That said it's time to fix em back up and show them some love. Pictures to follow if I can figure out how to post them.

Glad this place revived itself. Was truly bummed out when it was MIA. Heated clothing. My bike has all the outlets. Maybe it's time.

More bad press.  Wonder what the real story is.

If I hadn't already committed to a dirt bike ride I would go.
