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...


The vast majority of riders go too fast splitting lanes.  It's really easy to get sucked into it; I do it as well on occasion and have to remind myself to slow down.


I looked into something compact as well since I don't have the space to store a trailer.  I couldn't really find anything decent that I would trust, so picked up a used Kendon.  Folds up and I can store it upright on the side of the house.  I'm putting some upgraded casters on it over the weekend, so it rolls around even easier.

Bought for my R6 but ended up going with 190/55 instead.  $130.


Did ya pick them up?

Yes... tomorrow’s actually better (Wifeys off). Can you come out for a quick 5  pretty much anytime during work hrs or must it be done during lunch break?
pretty much. Txt me when you can come buy and ill check my schedule. I have a few meetings but mostly open

I should be there between 9-10am but I’ll also text you with my eta. Btw, Thanks.


RIP Annette.  Too soon :(

First come first served :)  Venom you coming to get em? Not sure about miles.  I'm around HB tomorrow after 4 or in Irvine Monday

I'll be home tomorrow PM; I'm in HB.  I'll check in if you still have 'em :)


Still have 'em?  I'd take the front, rear is too small.  How many miles you have on it?


Well, let me know if the process speeds up :D

Got it. Cargo van definitely is more useful if you plan to get serious about this sport. Or a truck like BD. Van is easier to load a bike on.
  And more secure, and more comfortable to sleep in....

Does that mean you're selling your Kendon :D ?  I'm looking for one now.


LOL  I never rode stoned or drunk.  Most I ever had was one beer when riding but I don't do that anymore either because then I have to pull over to pee  :32:  And I certainly wouldn't do it when commuting; the days of having a beer at 7am are long over LOL!!
