Perhaps a Santiago Canyon Cafe -> Live Oak Canyon -> 133 -> PCH -> HB main street.

This ride?

Last minute ride set up.  My Saturday morning just freed up and I'd like to take my bike out for a nice ride.  I know some of you guys already have plans to ride at GMR and Palomar, but I have a feeling those are more spirited than I want to take my 1100RT.

Is anyone up for a more relaxing ride in the morning?  Maybe Ortega, Santiago Cafe/Trabucco?  Even a ride down to the beach via Route 133, then up the coast to the HB area?

If I don't hear from anyone, then I'll just ride whatever/wherever I feel like in the morning.  (It's always nicer to ride with others though)

I have to agree with Rogue here.  From what I've seen on the forum side of things, there is almost no participation on this site.  Maybe there aren't enough members/users, maybe people don't really care.  I don't know, but I don't see participation from users as being a priority here. 

That's a topic for a different thread on a different day though. 

In any rate, I am going to pass on this ride, it's simply too hot for me and my gear.  I need to get some legitimate warm weather gear before i can commit to that long of a ride.

Oh man, I picked up an R1100RT last week and this would be a great first long ride.  I'll have to check with the old lady and see if we have any plans this Saturday.  I'm a maybe for this ride.

Front and rear dash cam in the car full time and love it.  I hope I never need to actually use it.  Still need to get a set for the motorcycle.

Dam, you would have a sale when i work weekend days and am in need of a new jacket.

Interesting read, thank you for the links.

Happy thanksgiving all.

Now who's ready to work the night shift with me?

Currently I'm at three:

1.  SV650 for committing purposes, because who doesn't like a bike with torque?   Actually, fit any sport bike of your choice in here.

2.  1977 RD400 2 stroke.  Gotta have a classic, something with style not many other people have.  Your "Sunday rider" if you will.

3.  Cr250 2-stroke for dirt only.  Your other weekend pleasure bike.

If I had the money, a fourth bike for the girl or a fourth bike to tour two up.  "Necessary" Garage complete.  Now if money were no issue...........

I've always had good luck in the past but definitely seems there is more garbage and spammers on CL than ever before.  Plenty of BS trying to sell my Daytona.  Lots of people "want it" but none of them have the cash.  IMO, if you can't afford $5k, you probably shouldn't be riding anyway LOL

Try OfferUp.  Like CL, but full of stolen goods.

Another for the streets of willow.

I use the fusion system.  I'm lucky, that is, my facial hair doesn't grow in very fast.  I shave every other day and you'd never know it.  That being said, I find the blades to be a much closer shave than the electric razor.  I've tried the safety razors (double blade) but found they didn't get as nice of a shave.  To each their own though. 

Let me know how you like the dollar shave club, might be worth checking out in the future.

I'm in Orange on the east end.  Haven't had much time to ride in the last six months.  That should be changing in the next two weeks.  I'll keep this thread in mind and ride with you guys.

Sweet bike and sweet vid.  I remember when they tested the H1R.  Sick bikes, but at $50K.  Whew...   

Side note:  Now that MotoGP is looking to ditch wind fins for the 2017 year, how will they expect to run the new bike?  XD

Looked like he touched his rearset to the ground, picked the bike up a little then went to drop in again and thats where he lost his front wheel.  Too much input on the handlebars maybe?

Not surprising what he was hooked for.

That, was, awesome.

Yah, I get what the signs mean.  My inquiry was geared towards when the transition took place.  Anyways, ride safe out there, it's going to be a hot one this week.

I get what the thumbs up means, but why?  When/why did we transitino from the peace sign/tapping of the helmet?

My guess is, Corporate Heads within Cycle Gear has been probably looking to bring in something more premium gear into their line-up....looking at Revzilla to fill that role vs. reinventing their stores. Makes sense, since Revzilla along would also bring in that well-established customer base, reputation, website, reviews, immediate revenue stream, etc....

Do people forget that Cycle Gear used to carry high end gear?  They had Dainese, A*, Icon, Shoei, Arai, Icon etc. etc.  They had all of the main brands carried in every single store.  It's only been in the last 4 years that they really started pushing their own gear and forcing out name brands.  They have always had access to premium brands and for a while that was primarily all they sold.  Adding Revzilla to their portfolio will not increase the premium gear Cycle Gear carries.  The only thing it would bring is the online site/videos and the following Revzilla has.

My guess:

Revzilla is realistically their only big online competitor.  Cycle Gear wants the Revzilla name and fan following.  They will probably leave the site relatively untouched.  I'm sure that they will add their own brands to the website and make them the front page product in all sectors.  Videos will probably remain up; they may create their own version of these videos after a few months but I bet you they will be no where near the quality of the original Revzilla videos.

Second option is that they will tear down the website and get rid of their competition.
