Took it the whole way yesterday; still had to split though?! That place is so busy! Saved 40min on the commute in and 23min on the way back; gotta love bikes 😁


College nickname. The 136 part is because Luciano was taken when I signed up for Napster some 20 years ago. Kept the number part alive 😁


You don't. I had a ticket once and when they looked closely at the pic and saw I was on a motorcycle, they dropped the ticket. I volunteer at the NHM every Saturday morning. I'm very familiar with the 110 N to LA. 

Awesome! Thank you! That should save me a lot of time!!


I have to ride into DTLA tomorrow. From what I read I don't need a transponder with a motorcycle; is that correct? Also, is it free or will they send the bill in the mail??

Thank you!


My back-up plan was to call the fire department to see if they can use them.


Interested! I have some to donate as well!

Worst case, her own insurance should cover the difference through the "uninsured motorist" coverage; that's the first place I would call.


Interesting concept.  Would the beads cause any wear on the inside of the tire? 


Aiai, although $300 isn't bad.  Could've been much worse.


Interesting idea but I personally don't ride enough on curvy roads in the dark.  LED upgrade on my Ninja was worth a million bucks though; the stock headlights were so bad I could see more with a candle LOL

The H2 SX has cornering lights I believe; maybe it will become more of a trend?

Same here.  No noticeable increase in bikes.

If you find a 1 bedroom apt for $1,600 these days, you're probably doing ok.  Real estate/rent is crazy high again. 

If I were in the market, I'd try to find a room in a house with a retired person; typically well priced and you have a whole house at your disposal.


That's all great and all but when are they going to realize that widening freeways is only a temp fix??  By the time it's finished, traffic already caught up.  Really wish they would build out a train network instead.  I've been commuting OC to the South Bay for 7 years now and the bulk of the traffic is actually north of the 605/405 interchange; this will only add to the dangerous situation of traffic coming to a halt.  I've seen so many accidents in that area ever since they completed the second carpool lane (including one fatal motorcycle accident that is still haunting me).

I saw this trailer in a bag thing but the price is ridic

I came across that too.  That's why I went with a used Kendon instead; still cheaper and waaaay better.  And it holds two bikes.

Don't get the connect but the regular bigger one.  You can pick them up used for a pretty good deal.  There was an article about them on Motorcyclist not too long ago.  Great moto hauler:

the issue with the V-strom in a transit connect is height - darn thing just won't fit unless you take off a bunch of accessories and compress the forks

makes it harder to steal, but best suited on a trailer, then an open truck bed

we will see...I may just keep my 2001 Ford F-150 and watch it run another 100,000 miles


Just get the bigger transit van; then you can just put your bike in the van or use a hitch carrier since the tongue weight should be high enough on those.


This also talks about securing the front wheel though.

One other option would be a hitch carrier as long as your vehicle has a tongue weight that can support it.  I use one for my minibike.

Maybe this is what you are looking for...
