Title: Share your thoughts, ideas, observations...
Post by: Tominator on 10/26/09 04:19PM
Hey, what's on your mind?
Ever have something you'd like to share but didn't feel like starting up a thread? I know I do all the time!
Photographs welcomed! Feel free to share your tales, ideas, whatever.

I'll start. It's a gorgeous day today! Eddie, Freddie, Norm, Tammy and I were hanging out at Coach's Deli this morning/afternoon.
Wee-Man and his buddy dropped by for Starbucks frappucino drinks, our local celebrity sighting for the day. Afterwards, I cruised with Norm/Tammy down to Dana Point where they stopped at Taco Surf for lunch. The beaches were just fantastic!

It really irks me when people walk straight into the elevator and slam into me as I'm trying to exit.

I think the freezer should have a light.

I believe in aliens and I think they disguise themselves by riding sportbikes and power ranger outfits.

I'm in love with Casey Stoner's wife. (is that bad?)

I recently noticed I was riding at 137 in the straights - it bothered me cause I like round numbers, so I took it up to 140.

I don't understand why Ducati makes you pay 20k for a bike and delivers it with a $5 toolkit.

I'm going to invent a special ingredient, kind of like what they use on money in banks when stolen, that will be identifiable and will stain anything that hit's a rider. The rider's bike and suit will instantly splash this highly penetrating marking on whatever it comes in contact with so as to identify the cause of the accident and or to capture hit and run drivers.

I think cops should keep a spare supped up liter bike ready at DUI checkpoints. If they suspect you've been drinking then you have to ride the bike on a small obstacle course at high speeds. If you survive then you can carry on without a DUI.

I think prisons should be funded by criminals. Essentially, they should be factories and if their income is low, well then - welcome to our world.

I think all MotoGP riders should be required to race at the Isle Of Man TT races and it should count as double the points for the season.

I don't understand why people insist on loitering in doorways and stairways.
I didn't know that Ducs came with a cheap tool kit - I just go for the free rides  :)
Freezers don't have lights 'cus it keeps the little eskimo guys from sleeping.

Well my buddy's 996 out here has a toolkit that looks like something you would get at CVS... Not joking. Maybe it's improved.
I knew there were little Eskimo dudes in there... thanks!

I like the slave labor idea for prisoners, additionally why do people actually care about criminals? why if someone is convicted of murder can we not hang the sob after the conviction is in? I believe if someone rapes a person they should be tortured until they die. Then maybe they will get to experience what thier victim has to go through the rest of their life.

Quick shout out to God here: Thank you for inventing Titties.

Am I the only one who wants to poke peoples feet as I ride by when they hang 'em out the window?

Someone needs to invent a cigarette with out the harmful side effects.

Have you ever wanted to do a wheelie through a camera enforced intersection and give the bird while going through just to mess with the Man?

Unless they were wrongly accused or convicted. Convictions do get overturned and not everyone is a criminal.

Do actors/actresses buy all of their own movies? How often do they watch their own movies?

Do singers/bands/rappers listen to their own stuff when they're driving?

If I were rich, I'd have a chouffer and I'd never drive another day in my life.

What is Nicky Hayden doing right now as I'm typing this?

I have dreams about doing wheelies. So why can't I do them in real life?

Why is it so hard to find good female friends? Ones that arn't flaky, call you just because, and actually ride on a regular basis? Oh yeah, and one that lives close to where I live. Is that so much to ask?

Now you have me thinking about all the stuff I've been wanting to post, but haven't.

If things go right, the violent criminals won't make it to arrest: just morgue processing with lead poisoning.

Agreed.

Also, how do you make a twinkie? Whats the key to baking a cake that has a hollow center?

when you eat donuts, do you consume the hole? Or is it released when you take the first bite of it?

I find that very annoying as I'm trying to safely lane-share pass cars stuck in congestion. I'm sure there's a vehicle code against idiots laying down inside the cars and sticking their feet out. Something like improper passenger restraint - I'd like to ticket both the jackass with his/her feet sticking out and the driver for allowing it to happen. I revved my little KZ550 once in that scenario, the two idiots took their legs/feet in FAST.


Am I the only one who wants to poke peoples feet as I ride by when they hang 'em out the window?


I think he uses Mane and Tail. Next time I go over I'll check. Of course, he has girl cousins and neice there. It may be hard to distinguish which products are his.

I have a 1-second scene in Rush Hour 2, I don't think I have the movie. I find Chris Tucker to be very annoying.
It is probable that rappers listen to Barbara Streisand in their vehicles while driving.
I've observed that nearly all street bike riders in the Victorville/Hesperia area are dudes. There might be some girls who ride dirt. I too have the problem of lacking good female friends. My dude friends don't cook for me. Well, sometimes they do like bar-be-ques.

A week or two ago on the highway (I forget which one) I saw what I thought was a halloween prop hanging out the rear passenger window of a small sedan.

There was a tangly haired head, a shoulder, and a skinny arm that was so long it was nearly touching the ground. 

I was coming up on the passenger side as I was splitting, trying to figure out what kind of prop it was when the head turned and looked at me in surprise and the arm shot back into the car.   :o

Women and bikes indeed! There's the three older blonde birds in their white racing suites that drives me nuts! One rides a Ducati, Gixer, and now I can't remember what the other bike is (some sort of blue Japanese sport bike  :26:). They like to ride Ortega and Palomar a lot!

My folks had a rental home in Irvine by IVC. Single story four-bedroom, rented for 2450. Sold it just a few months ago. In comparison 1700 for 2-room and garage seems cheap - depends on the square footage of those 2-room places.
When I was living with a girl we had a 2-room apartment and shared garage for 1150. What a dump.

What I find to be total crap are halfway houses. They charge tenants over a hundred bucks a week for just a place to sleep, no house privileges. There's a ton of halfway houses in Garden Grove by the Starbucks where I worked (Euclid/Chapman).

I find it's real scary driving slow on the freeway.

Today I left work early to help my mom with changing her flat tire. Then I rode in front of her down the 15 from Corona (where we work) to Elsinore doing 50 the whole way. The whole time I kept thinking some ass is going to get pissed and zip around my mom and cut back without looking and rear end me.

If you are familiar the the 15 south of the 91 part of it is 70mph and most do 80+ .

Another thing someone at work brought up. Why is it that people seem to be getting worse with spelling and English? If I feel that I'm spelling a word incorrectly I will look it up. I am pretty lax about my sentence structure and punctuation but seriously, why do so many have such poor English skills?
Title: Re: Share your thoughts, ideas, observations...
Post by: Tominator on 10/28/09 09:08AM
Kudos for helping your mom  :29: . Was it a compact spare tire? It's wise to not drive over 50-55 with those things.
It bugs me when some people drive on it forever, and not have a full-sized tire put back on due to laziness or poor monetary habits.
I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to check the air pressure on their spares. Out of sight, out of mind. One day when you'll need it, it's deflated.

Compact spares are inflated to 65psi, full-sized ones I like to +5 psi (due to slow air loss over time). For instance, I have the spare on my pickup inflated to 40.


 Why is it that people seem to be getting worse with spelling and English? If I feel that I'm spelling a word incorrectly I will look it up. I am pretty lax about my sentence structure and punctuation but seriously, why do so many have such poor English skills?

I no what u mean, yo. A person does not have to be a Yale graduate to know the difference between know, no, knowl, brake, break, etc.

Hey Kareem,

yeh 1,700 isn't THAT bad for Irvine, but I have seen several 3 bedroom places in Irvine for around 1,800. and I've seen just a few 2 bedroom places for around 1,500. so they are out there, just gotta check them out. If not Irvine, then Costa Mesa or Tustin.



*It's amazing how some music/songs can completely change or create your mood. the perfect song was on my iPod this morning and totally made my day start off amazingly. Plus I had an apple for breakfast.


*I heard that if you have a mini-spare and you need to put it on, you have to make sure you put it on the rear axle, because you shouldn't have them up front. (so if you have a flat in front, you take the wheel from the back, put it on the front, and put the spare on the back). Can anyone confirm this?
Title: Re: Share your thoughts, ideas, observations...
Post by: Gaskommando on 10/28/09 10:14AM
It was one of those compact spares AND it wasn't properly inflated so we had to putt to the gas station to fill it up. When we arrived there was another person with a flat. Weird night. She needed new tires and was planning on going friday to get them but with the flat it looks like she's getting 'em today.

I have not heard about not running the mini-spare on the front but it does sound like it could be true. Unlike scrubbing your new motorcycle tires with steel wool to get the film off of them.

Another question why do some people feel the need to talk out of their ass all the time? A friend at work had his dog break its leg over the weekend, his sister told him if the break is below the knee they don't need surgery and to wrap the dog's leg with cardboard and an ace bandage. I used to work at a veterinarians office as a technician (animal nurse) and told him that was incorrect and could harm the dog. He complained about money and ignored what I said.

*I heard that if you have a mini-spare and you need to put it on, you have to make sure you put it on the rear axle, because you shouldn't have them up front. (so if you have a flat in front, you take the wheel from the back, put it on the front, and put the spare on the back). Can anyone confirm this?

Umm there could be several reasons . . . I would say braking and steering. You have a majority of your braking on the front tires of your car. If you want to stop suddenly, the last thing you want to rely on is one of those little donuts

I want to know who was the jack ass that decided to try and pass a law that requires bikes to pass smog laws.

Probably the same Jack ass that passed the CPSC law on the lead content in children's toys, thus eliminating any possibility of anyone under the age of 12 being able to ride a motorcycle, unless their parents buy them a KX250F as their first bike. Can we say stupidest law ever?

Now they're finally making exceptions and putting children's toys, motorcycles, ATV's and scooters back on the market. But geez, what a nightmare.

Another thing someone at work brought up. Why is it that people seem to be getting worse with spelling and English? If I feel that I'm spelling a word incorrectly I will look it up. I am pretty lax about my sentence structure and punctuation but seriously, why do so many have such poor English skills?

I blame the laziness of Americans, poor education system, acceptance of tawkin lik dis, and spell check!

but seriously when you say you won me and I reply back no, you just beat me and you have no idea what just happened . . . I feel like I won

The ones that bug me the most are won, beat/they're, there, their/brake, break

Despite working for America's Tires, I personally don't have a stance on where to place the compact spare. I mean, it's really meant to get you off the freeway into a safe place. OR get your car to the nearest tire place.
Maybe Yaron has a better opinion on this.

Mmmmmmm....... lead....... just three protons away from being precious gold......

I work in a dental office now, we put aside lead foil from film packets for safe disposal. If anybody would like clean lead for bullet casting, let me know. This lead is better than wheel weight lead, just takes a lot longer to accumulate.

Why the hell am I still up reading this stupid thread when I have to wake up tomorrow at 530am?

Why do I ALSO dream of wheelies even though I haven't pulled one off (yet)?

Since the wife will only agree to one bike at a time in the garage should I sell the Ducati and get the sport tourer? Or should I just buy that Gold Wing I saw on craigslist and just put up with the abuse coming my way?

Why is that self proclaimed, arrogant, socialist idiot who hates kids in my teaching credential course? I mean really, you want to become a teacher? Really?

If you can tie a good double windsor knot in your tie, you look totally professional. If you tie a lousy square knot....um...not so much. Friggin tool...

How the HELL was it over 80 this weekend and below freakin' FREEZING today?!?!?!!

I learned last week that adolescents not only are being flooded with hormones that affect their behavior but the frontal lobe of their brains (which controls reason and decision making) don't fully develop until their early 20's. So not only are they crazy but they are also mentally handicapped.  And this is the age I want to teach?  Really?  I mean...REALLY??!?!!!

I'm going to bed now.

There is to much for the brain to process. First is temp and seasons. From sun ride to 6pm is summer, 6mp to 2am is fall, from 2am to sunrise is winter (a mid western fall at that). Second, If your not happy with one bike, then get 2. If the wife doesn't agree, then you did something wrong. I can't help with teaching. I'm 29 and still act like I'm 17. I'm O.K. with that.

They pick their nose in the cage because it's easier than trying to do it on a bike.
I know I have never been able to successfully remove a green goblin from the cave of doom while riding but in the cage those bastards get to hit the highway at 70mph or preferably another cages windshield.

Another beautiful day! Thumbs up to the motorcyclist who warned us of the motorcop who was wrapping up a ticket to a van on PCH. As we passed him, the cop pulls behind Adi and dings Adi for FE. Such crap, and right there's a jerkass in a Land Rover yapping on his cell phone. I think one female bicyclist gave me the finger  ??? What did I/we ever do to the bicyclists?

My though of the day: Props to Danielle and Elle for making it to Birthday Bash! They brought Jason and Elle's friend, and they were all in costume!  :29: For those who do not know, some DUI asshole caused Danielle and Elle to wreck on their way to June Birthday Bash. :6:

Gah! Apologies, FE = fender eliminator.
Adi said the motorcop was really cool about the whole incident. Though I wouldn't have thought so since the license plate is 100% there AND like I stated earlier, there were motorists very content with holding cellular phones up to their ears because I'm sure they were emergency calls or billion dollar deals stood to be made or broken via transactions in motor vehicles.

FE?

I haven't had a flu shot in two years. Thought it was a good idea since I do have to work with complete strangers all day face to face, and some of them are indeed the sickly types. Ick.

Sluty costumes, YAY!  :D

This morning I woke up and was pissed that my cell phone didn't charge. I already had to replace it once because the charging port was busted and didn't want to have to replace it again. So I take off the cover thinking that its was getting in the way of the charger making full contact, no luck. Checked to make sure the charger was fully plugged into the wall, it was. Tried wiggling the charger around in the phone to see if it was positional, again no luck.

At this point I got really pissed and went to yank the charger out of the wall by the cord and it came flying at me like a bat out of hell hitting me in the forehead. It was at this point I realized it was my backup charger that fell off the night stand not the one that was actually plugged into the wall. I haven't felt that dumb in a while.

Post by: Keyvan. on 10/30/09 01:12PM
Office Space really is the best movie of all time--there's no question.

I have a thought. A question, actually... Why doesn't the public school system teach us about finance & tax, investments, assets, liabilities... You know, the shit that ultimately equates to our personal survival. It's really life & death stuff, and it's being omitted. Instead we got retarded classes like Art (I don't want to paint shit! If we're creative, we'll find our creative outlet, your stupid ART doesn't enhance my creativity, it only bores me and wastes valuable school-time) or Computers/Keyboarding (Do they still "teach" this? I certainly hope not, that's all kids are doing outside of school, better not be wasting time on it at school) or English Literature (I don't want to read your books! I DO want to develop my vocabulary--my toolbox for communication in a modern world--but I could certainly do without this 18th century vernacular you're hoping to test me on).

I liked recess though, that was always a blast. But if you're going to force me to listen to you for the rest of the day, at least teach me something worthwhile & useful.

School should be more personal. Right now it's like this:

We're born.

We're herded like sheep into school.

We start becoming cognizant around pre-school/kindergarten or so.

We see these kids our age/size around us. They have nothing to teach us. They are all stupid and dumb just like me, waiting to be fed information. Yet these idiots are the people I spend most of my time around.

The teachers I grew up with did NOT spend personal time with the kids, guiding them through each year of their life with compassion and a customized curriculum catered to that child's natural talents. No no no--instead it was completely formulaic and impersonal.

They're good at giving you one-on-one attention when you do something wrong. When the sheep steps out of the herd, so to speak. These innocent cries for attention are instead punished.

Maybe there's not enough money in the world to hire more teachers (more teachers equals a lower sheep:shepherd ratio, which means more personal contact, which means more learning). But then, maybe teaching us a little bit about money so the first thing we fluffing do isn't get into a shitpile of debt, would enable us to finance more teachers in the future.

Finance is simple math.... you cant have more on the right side of a subtraction equation with out going negative. Any person that gets themself into debt does so willingly.

Even animals know simple math... I show my dog one treat and he gets happy. I then show him another treat whiles hes chomping on the first one and gets even more anxious and rushes to get the second..... I take away the second treat while hes chomping on the first, and he starts to growl......

^lol - while we do need to modernize schools the fundamentals of a school system are to teach you how to read and write. Honestly, there's not much in the school system that will teach you family values and or life values (they try but it's really not the governments/state/counties strength)

The family unit is where teaching needs to improve in my opinion. Unfortunately these days parent send their kids to schools and expect that the school system is going to make future well rounded professionals of them all... Nah, it all starts at home. Good parenting offsets bad social values, good parenting fills the gap on things that you can't or won't learn in school.

So, what it really comes down to is that you can't rely on a public school system or even private for that matter to enforce good values, values that begin in the home and are taught to you by your parents and loved ones.

Just an opinion.

Hello OCMoto peeps! How are you all doing?

It's another beautiful day in Newport Beach/Costa Mesa! Eddie and I went to Extreme Dream Rider for their Saturday open house and rode their trikes. I took the Honda Goldwing beast and Eddie took the earth shaker Harley Davidson. For lunch they served chili cheese hot dogs, yum! The staff there at EDR (Fred, Russ, et al) are very friendly, I would recommend them to anyone who would like to rent a motorbike.

While we were out on the trikes, Shelly and Adi arrived. Adi kept my Domo guy company, looks pretty comfortable!

On a different subject, I put on about 10k miles on the M998 courtesy of you tax payers. I should find the photos taken of them at Crystal Cove Shake Shack - good times!

Went to Huntington Beach donut shop off PCH/6th Monday morning, one of the locals wasn't feeling well. Another local stepped in and called the paramedics.

I wish I was just 'chillin' in hb, lucky peeps.

Another thought: Why do people stomp on their brakes every time they see a CHP, even when they're going under the speed limit? Why is it so hard to just maintain speed or just let off the gas pedal? Why grab a foot full of brake so every car behind you has to nearly come to a screeching stop to compensate? People do this EVERY DAY on the 241. Drives me NUTS!

Rode to Supreme Donuts, had my morning coffee and donut. Texted Tom, he went to Oakley with Adi and Shelley.

I then rode to NB Ducati, They said 796 Hypermotard will be there in December. Maybe there will be one at the IMS show.

They had this bike:

Yaron, thanks for the tip!
That was one of my ideas for a thread, for people to post up their picks and favorites such as food eateries, service places, barbers, etc.

Sounds like a place for us to ride over for lunch one day soon, right Eddie? I haven't eaten at the Thai or Caliente. When I come to the office, I get extremely lazy and won't go out by myself.

For 5$ basic haircut, Julie's Barber off McFadden/Ward (north-east corner). When I ride there, I get a shampoo also so the helmet doesn't get the hair all over inside (2$). Seven bucks for a cut and shampoo, I usually hand over a ten.
If you visit Julie's, the driveway off McFadden is the way to go. The driveway off Ward is all torn up and usually flooded.

Another barbershop that I went to for over fifteen years is Sam the barber, now the owner of Dunk's Barber, off Bushard/Warner (north-west corner). 7$, 8 for high-and tight.

So now you know, and can stop wondering where Tom gets his awesome high-and-tight haircuts!

I was riding to work and taking it pretty slow...
I had an urge to speed up and lane split, but I kept thinking, "Hey I made it this far, don't go fluffing it up right now."
Made it to work in one piece. Hooray.

What is it about owning a black SUV that makes you drive like an a** hole? Is there a mandate on the title somewhere that says, "You're the proud owner of a black SUV. Thou art officially an a** hole."

and

Why would MTV schedule an interview with Chris Brown to run on TV the same time as Rhianna's interview? Not that I'm watching either one, but something seems really amiss about this.

Why doesn't Mariah just cop to the fact that her and Eminem had a thing once upon a time. Then I don't have to hear any more annoying songs from either of them about each other on the radio. But I guess as long as their making money off the denial, why not.

Why don't people understand that in a program handling lots of data, being flexible with data, and high speed are mutually exclusive unless you have lots of money to throw at hardware? They wanted lots of flexible options, but complain that the system has to calculate for a second.

Lots of data, highly flexible = tank.
Lots of data, quick = train.
Highly flexible, quick = sportbike.

Lots of data, highly flexible, quick = ???

Anyone have the answer?

*edit: my American Legion post is having a poker run tomorrow. Sorry about the short notice, I just read it in the newsletter. It is from 10-noon, I'm thinking of going. I have idea how much the buy-in is, hope I show up with enough $. Although the riders are all cruisers/HD, they're comrades and heroes. All money raised supports communities and veterans.

I honestly have no idea how many cruisers will be rolling tomorrow. The Legion Riders aren't all that many, so it'll be mostly friends and people who just want to join the event. I'm projecting overall participants to be as many as the St. Judes "Ride for a Cure" sponsored by Chili's.

Eddie, maybe you could stop by the post and hang out for a bit. It's right off Beach and Hazard.

That clamp-on cup holder would've been nice though. Had I won the gun safe I'd put my pocketknife in there for safe keeping.

As predicted, Adi and Shelly were the only two sport bikes. There was a KTM and Gold Wing in the mix with us  :29: Had any Honda riders gone to this event, they would've scored Honda T-shirts, Ha-ahahah!!HA!

Thought of the day: this getting dark at 5pm sucks. Most of the guys on the Julian/Borrego ride did not get home til after dark.

I went to Julian today and all I got was this: mountan apple berry pie

(http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/pie-1.jpg)

Kareem, it's straight poker. You draw five cards at 4-5 locations. Yesterday's event was fun, I didn't observe anyone cheating.
Can't say the same for the St. Jude Children's Hospital poker run, guys were cheating discarding cards they didn't want. Can't do that in a real poker game.

The OCMoto poker run this past April was a blast! (despite my bad head cold). That was where we met Rachel, her dad Curtis, fiance Mario, and Luis Perez (Rest in Peace).

Was it straight poker or hold'em?

Is that Dane?!
I'll be taking the trauma part Tuesday night. Kinda a buzzkill thinking that first responder actions might be needed on injured riders one day.
One thing I've been taught by men far greater than me is: Don't make other people's problems yours. If it's an OCMoto peep in need, it's a no-brainer. But if some dipshit zips by us and crashes for example, I could care less. So, don't be that dipshit and don't make me not like you.

On the plus side, I didn't have to use my knife on asshole cagers today. On our way back home, a Toyota pickup with dirtbike in back didn't know if he wanted to stop at the fruit stand or not. No signal, he's half off the highway. Then no signal again and pulls back onto the highway in front of us. I lay on the horn and he sticks his middle finger out. REALLY?!
There's another fruit stand on the left side, this time he signals and I see there's a little boy on the front seat. Real good example for the driver to set, and asking for a confrontation by giving motorists the finger  ::)

Columbus started the invasion into America. America, or the North American Continent was already here well before Mr. Columbus and it was occupied by human beings.

Interest rates - you guys noticed how ridiculously low our savings/CD rates are? How the F are we supposed to save, especially when the Feds tax interest as income?! I'm thinking that in February after I get all of my forms to have a fun drawing - guess how much Tominator's 2009 interests totaled. Standard Price is Right format, amount closest to but not over the actual figure. Or maybe more fun could be guess how much Tominator lost in the 401k market game?  :26:
Nah, we'll stick to interest total. What would you guys like for a prize? $20 giftcard to Target?

Also, thought of the day:

HAPPY VETERANS DAY to all veterans, especially OCMoto peeps! Off the top of my head, the following are veterans:
Pete, Mike, Mike, Eric, BusaSoldier, Christopher, Kyle, RickRacer, Freddie, and there's got to be several more I can't think of right now.
Freddie, I got your back. I put out my flag and Liz's.  :29:

This month Knott's Berry Farm is doing their Salute to Veterans again, anyone with an ID card or DD214 can bring in one guest for FREE, and buy discounted tickets.

Rode to Supreme Donuts, ran into Skiee riding down Beach Blvd. We had our coffee and donuts.

(http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc114/eddiemon_1955/ocmoto/IMG_0531.jpg)

As we were getting ready to leave, there is this guy sleeping on the bus bench and antother guy who picks his pocket for money. He not only did it once but did it twice then walked across to the CVS store. I go did you see that?! I went into the donut shop and called 911, Norm was hanging by the bikes. Then he comes out of CVS and goes back to the bus stop. The bus pulls up and just as he was getting on the bus HB police pulls up and gets the guy.

Update on member veterans: forgot Danny and Sterfire! There's still a couple of more I can't think of/remember right now.

Let us all remember Scott (Mothersmark) whose ass is in the 'Stan right now. When he returns to Camp Pendleton, he may or may not like the new commandant's rule of no more orange vests.

*edit: I don't have to be in the office til 11:30. I'm thinking of Supreme Donuts or Starbucks Main St. Both are in H.B., a few hundred feet of each other.

**further edit: a few of us will be at Supreme Donuts off PCH/6th around 9:30-10am and hang out for a short while.

It would appear that I started a trend at work. Since I have been at my current job I have never seen any other bikes. Now that I have begun parking at the bike rack 1 scooter and 1 rebel have showed up and out back another scooter was hiding. Kinda cool to see other riders appearing, kinda felt like the lone ranger for a bit.

Also why is it that when I drove a car/truck to work and would walk in noone at the front desk ever took notice of me. Now that I'm riding to work and walk in wearing my jacket and holding my helmet, they try to stop me every other day "uhh excuse me sir did you bother to sign in?" "excuse me sir you cant just go wandering around the hospitial" "HEY! you need to sign in before you go anywhere!"
Last time I just ignored them and kept walking. Shortly after security came wandering through my office wondering if anyone had seen a suspicious motorcycle guy wandering around. What BS.

I was thinking the same thing the other day but I think I figured it out.
My commute on my bike is always around 20-25 mins and i'm going with the bike flow
but while going with the slower, car flow, my commute is 30-45+ mins
So I figure I'm not flowing with them and I'm just on the road that much longer in my car so I see a lot more of them
Title: Re: Share your thoughts, ideas, observations...
Post by: deL on 11/12/09 12:57PM
Because when you cage, your attention wanders around more than when you're on a bike.  While riding you've got to keep your focus on scanning ahead, thus you are less likely to notice other riders (unless they're right in front of you).

FALSE! Your head should be on a swivel while youre on your ride. And you should be scanning everywhere, not just ahead of you. Consequently you would notice more bikes than you would in a steel box where you really only need to look directly in front of you!

At my brothers apartment complex there is a nice naked triumph 1098 that has never moved since he has lived there( I marked the tires with chalk).

There was an SV at the apartment complex, I left a note for the owner to check out this forum and join us on rides. It would be moved from one side of the street to another for street sweeping, but that's about it. It would sit out in the sun, get dewed on, etc.


At my brothers apartment complex there is a nice naked triumph 1098 that has never moved since he has lived there( I marked the tires with chalk). I has spiderwebs all over it, chain is rusting, its all dusty. It is a very depressing sight, I want to steal it away to my place where it will get proper use and maintenance.

An animal rationalizes, it just does so instinctively more so than emotionally. That does not mean it is devoid of emotion - ever hear a kitty cry?

Descartes argued that only humans have minds. We've been able to prove he was wrong. Go check out the thread with the two blonds trying to dance...

Or just visit a zoo and watch how a monkey interacts. His writings were pretty much Aristotelianism... With mathematics. Decent contributions that built on previous knowledge and bridged a gap to future philosophers. I disagree that he was the father of modern Philosophy, he simply helped propagate existing knowledge.

I think, therefore I thought.

Even when I stopped riding my scooter I still took it out every week or two to keep things moving. Right now I'm trying to help my gf get my brother's rebel up and going again, it runs, front tire refuses to hold air, got done cleaning the chain, new spark plugs, need to find a day where the two of us can go down and get it registered. I think insurance for her was about $350 for the year. I hate seeing bikes just rust away.

I should just leave him a note saying that I'll take it if he doesn't want to use it.

I wouldnt venture so far as to say that every argument that he posed was correct, but as you mentioned he did bridge a gap. Can an animal feel emotion? You, yourself stated that its done so instinctictively rather than emotionally. A kitty cries, why? Is it pain? Sadness? Is it instinct? A cry is followed by attention..... if that is what is sought, the instinctive reaction was successful. I would not venture out to say an animal can not feel pain... you step on a dogs tail and it cries, but is there emotion?

A simpler statement could not be made, and have so many implications. The internal struggle of what shapes us and what is real is explored by that simple interjection. Yes he argued that only humans had minds.... in what context we dont know. The man made many of his "discoveries" amisdt hallucinations, yet profound they were.....

IMHO Yoda they are approved!   :7:

Touché..... always a pleasure to discuss philosophy with one that is cognizant and has an opinion..

Always loved philosophy because to argue that one person is wrong while the other is right requires a premise that one stance is better than another.....

I think therefore I am....  :33:

You should throw a note on it and see if he wants to sell it for cheap. or call the DMV with the VIN and see if its stolen

I think animals have emotions, I have come home to a dog that was stuck inside all day. He didn't need anything from me, he was just happy to see me all jumping around and excited to see me. Happiness is an emotion

i pulled the nail out and poured some water over the hole. didn't see any bubbling. the nail went in sideways, so i might have gotten lucky. will have to see what the tire pressure does tonight.

worst case scenario is that i put the stock wheels and tires back on. Cycle Mall is selling BT-002 Pros T2 rears for $80 each, so I might get one of those. It'd be cheap enough.

That Civic cab is most likely Compressed Natural Gas and 800-lbs lighter than a Ford Ltd.

She needs to hang and roll with us, and learn the ways. Motorcycle rear tires are supposed to touch the curb. An H.B.P.D. ticketing agent told Freddie so last week (we didn't do anything wrong, the agent was just chatting with Freddie).

I actually feel pretty well, thank you for asking!  :)

I haven't had a flu shot in two years, maybe I should get one this year. Not too worried with the HiNi one however.

Okay, so the dipshit HD guy down my block who insists on ripping through the residential street instead of taking the major street (by his house) is a Hessian. His patch says so. I feel like swinging a bat at his head, pouring gasoline on the bike and lighting it up. Why? Because discharging a firearm within city limits is a no-no. Cops would probably care less, but the DA would have a cow.

Look up Dr. Tooma @ TLC in Newport Beach.  He has done like 60,000 of these surgeries, and he's the one who TEACHES other opthamologists how to do the LASIK procedure.  I was going to have mine done by him... but after the pre-op procedures (where they check the condition of your eyes to see if correction is possible) they told me that my left eye is SOOO bad and the cornea is too thin to correct 100%.   So I figured if I'm not gonna benefit 100% I might as well just pocket the $6k and get glasses for the rest of my life (or at least until they find a way to correct it 100%.

Thanks, I'll look him up.

Fun times at Birthday Bash  :29:
I didn't care much for the bar/restaurant itself, I'm still with Shore House for Bashes. The German bartender's kinda cute, too bad for me I slept through three years of deutsch in college. Dunno why I wasn't carded, Adi and I are the same age  :32: (seriously, we really are).

Total debauchery! No cherry toppings!

Shelly, thank you for the Johnny Walker  :) . I was surprised that the fine establishment didn't have Johnny Walker BLue label  :26:
(http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF3740.jpg)

When we left the bar/restaurant, an OPD was tailing me. The unit has mis-aimed headlights, I wanted to pull him over and cite him. The pig tailed me onto the freeway and finally exited. There was a LOT of po-po action tonight. I hope everyone made it home without incident.
The upside was, Liz sang nine Insane Clown Posse songs for me  :32:

No kidding! I've taken to wearing 2 sweatshirts and sweatpants under my leathers.

I'm also starting to wonder how much extra amperage my bike can support for a heated vest, gloves, leggings, and scarf!

I agree, it's about 45 degrees here at 7 in the morning. Add in wind chill, my teeth chatter! I haven't riden to work on the past several Mondays. On the other days, I start later and the sun really warms things up.
Instead of two sweatshirts, perhaps check out the polypropolyne long underwear? I wore them while in the service, spent a lot of time in the desert. I have two tops, one's regular crew neck, the other is a zip-up mock turtle neck. In January-February I'd also wear a balaclava.

Back on Feb 10th, Taco Tuesday, it was 35 degrees there when we left. Brrrrr!!

seriously.... but for me, it's worth saving $60 each week in fuel costs. the scarf is a good idea that i hadn't thought about. i lose a lot of heat from my neck. +1 for you

You might get them cheaper at a surplus store, but they are also available at any local sports store. I have the long underwear as well as the shirts.... They are very similar to the underarmour underwear...... Keep heat in during the winter.... keep you cool in the summer. I used to commute at 330 AM with temps around 33 - 35 C and these helped alot!. I have worn them under textile jackets with no liner and have felt good.....

Combine these bad boys with a neck warmer and you are golden! 

Only con is if you have any body hair, prolonged wear leads to increased static = pain !
Static on hairy legs is not fun

Tom won a hat.

Being the last bike night, she should have made the move. If she's paid attention all season, she'd know to look for me at Supreme Donuts or Starbucks Main St.  ;) Anyone visiting OCMoto dot com would see us all over the place and know where to intercept us.

And here I am with three plus the phone. If I give her my laptop, that probably won't solve much if she doesn't have wi-fi (unless her neighbor has an unsecured signal).

So I am reading through and just wrote a response to the thread about "OC Moto Ratings" and the thread vanishes. :2:

The thread was not heading in a positive direction by page 9 and I was trying to post something to curve that direction.

But poof... gone. ??? Unless it's pornographic or racist thats just flat out censorship. :22:

Makes me think twice about investing anytime on the forum if what your going to write is going to just be deleted.

My guess is the thread had outlived its useful life, and it was going severely off-topic.  I agree deleting it might have been a hasty move, but locking it would have sufficed.

the percentage of deleted threads is far outweighed by the number of existing threads.  By an order of magnitude, at least.

^ this +1

- the mods let it go for quite a while, gotta give them credit for that and the decision to delete it was for oc moto as a whole the right one. I think all of the possible ways to look at the ratings system were covered so I would'nt call it a loss. There's still the motogp paddock thread :)

wait.... who keeps giving me +1 stop that!

Shelly, tell me about it!  Since I graduated in March of this year, I have applied for 179 positions.  I interviewed for 93 of them (58 by phone and 39 of them in person).  I have spent just over $300 in "job search" expenses (includes car mileage/gas, parking expenses, dry cleaning the suit, and resume printing expenses).

Believe me, I have an excel sheet tracking all this data (along with receipts)... I will be writing all this off my taxes for this year.

You kept track of your job search expenses?  Maybe you should be an accountant!
The best thing any person can do is study the 1040 booklet when it is NOT tax season.

Playing around with turbotax software can help prepare people for the next year also.

Hello OCMoto people! What a weekend. I hope you are all doing well and have a great evening!

1) Renzo, did you want Twilight/Miley Cyrus stuff for Christmas?

2) I say we should still do our own "people of Wal-Mart" spy photography. A different store each week.

3) After Toy Ride today, a few of us went over to SBUX Main St to hang out. A woman piloting a Ford Expedition insisted on parking into a spot meant for a Honda Civic or Cooper Mini. She nearly crushes the HD a couple of times, the HD owner moved it (he was parked in the 'dead zone'). The guy on left (in white shirt) was on a blind date with her or something. He tried to tell her nicely that it ain't gonna happen, I wasn't as nice. It was quite entertaining.
Can you say, "TWIT"?

It was like a bike show there! MV Agusta, old BMW, old Hondas, HD. Eddie has photos, perhaps he'll post up.

Question about real Chatter!Box since I've been using my homemade one with a Cobra radio (inspired by Kayvon):

With my Cobra, I'd tune in to 17.28 to listen/talk to 12.28 (467.6625 + the .28).
Now that I have a real ChatterBox! (the plain FRS one with two channels), I am confused. The two channels/frequencies are:
1) 462.5625 (also channel 1 on my Cobra)
2) 467.5625 (channel 8 on my Cobra).

Seems like I'll be talking to myself now? If all else fails, the CB! can act as an amplifier for my ipOd.

ummmm i dont know! but how much did it cost you to make the cobra one?

Post by: Tominator on 11/22/09 08:48PM
I already had the Cobra radios, so I spent 70 for the throat mic and remote PTT button (Push to talk).
Really ghetto, but nothing hanging off my helmet. The Cobra sits in a jacket pocket. A few of you guys have seen me using it, I've used it on NooB Rides to monitor sweeper talk and a few group rides to help keep track of turns.

Your bank and cell phone providers have the same if not more information than google does, however unlike they when the DOJ requests it google's not doing back flips over themselves to shovel it out, lol

OSX and Windows 7 are both on the short road to cloud computing  so this is just the beginning anywho.

The Track is Losail in Qatar - last year MotoGP ran there first night race there but this year it was cancelled due to rain. :(

* edit as far as google's china involvement we have a couple of workers that are from and still have family members there and they were all very excited about it, while they obviously wish it was more open net they have access to far greater information easier than before and you are seeing these things continue to drive the westernization of China.

A perfect example are neighborhoods based off orange county design that are popping up all over and being sold out in China

2) 467.5625 (channel 8 on my Cobra).

Seems like I'll be talking to myself now? If all else fails, the CB! can act as an amplifier for my ipOd.

There are several CB models. The 2-channel FRS you picked up (FRS 1 & 8 ), the FRS-X2 (FRS 1-14 I think), and the 22 channel GMRS-X1. One problem I find with the cross-over is the transmission levels of the CB do not meet the transmission levels of the handhelds. The handhelds are louder transmitting, and quieter receiving overall.

Here's the cross-over:

GMRS-X1 . Uniden / Cobra . Channel (Frequency)
1 . . . . . . . 1 . . . . FRS-1 462.5625
2 . . . . . . . 2 . . . . FRS-2 462.5875
3 . . . . . . . 3 . . . . FRS-3 462.6125
4 . . . . . . . 4 . . . . FRS-4 462.6375

6 . . . . . . . 6 . . . . FRS-6 462.6875
7 . . . . . . . 7 . . . . FRS-7  462.7125
8 . . . . . . . 16 . . . . GMRS-Simplex(2) 462.575
9 . . . . . . . 18 . . . . GMRS-Simplex(4) 462.625
10 . . . . . . . 20 . . . . GMRS-Simplex(6)     462.675
11 . . . . . . . 15 . . . . GMRS-Simplex(1) 462.550
12 . . . . . . . 17 . . . . GMRS-Simplex(3)     462.600
13 . . . . . . . 19 . . . . GMRS-Simplex(5) 462.650

Because the transmission strength on FRS channels is limited to 1/2 watt. GMRS channels are only limited to 5 watts. If the terrain isn't too hilly, it can give you an extra mile or two.

At first I didn't want to post these up, I didn't have a tripod nor a flashlight. Hieu's headlight was too bright on the Hooligan bike, Ian's R is -blah- without an outside light source, and the camera was sitting on the ground for the Cam aro shot.

22 NOV 09, my platoon took 5 casualties and lost two great soldiers, even more than that they were our friends and brothers. Marcus Tynes and James Nolen, i fuckin miss you guys so much, i love you two like my own flesh and blood and would give anything to have you back. please everyone pray for them and their families. please also pray for my other three buddies that were injured, Young, Munoz, and Davis.



Just got this from my younger brother who is in the Army and deployed over in Afghanistan right now. One of the guys who died has a pregnant wife and a kid. My brother was helping him pick out baby names on Saturday from a book that the guys wife had sent him. The two guys that died were two of his best friends that he has been with since bootcamp.

RIP My prayers go out to the families of those lost and to the platoon may they be able to remain strong and vigilant in this time of mourning.

Dude, that sucks. Couple of months ago Gina's backpack opened on her and she lost her cellular phone and wallet. My backpack was about 1/3 opened one day, just jacket liner inside. I think the camera was in the bottom.

Backpack opened on the freeway...farewell jacket liner I loved thee so....

Monday night bike night isn't the largest (unlike Taco Tuesday), but it's nearly OCMoto exclusive.

Whoa, not cool....my old laptop backpack would whip like a flag when I was on a freeway....I used to dread even the thought of flying open....that is until I got my ultra cool Ogio No Drag!  (special thx to Kareem) Notice the zipper goes around the back of the backpack....it is truly is "no-drag."

You won't regret it Diz, I have the same backpack. Pricey but nice, it also offers a level of back protection as the outer cover is a soft-hardened compound... Dig it.

Number one backpack trick: make sure the zippers are together, to one side of the zipper, and as far to the bottom as possible.

I'd be up for a ride Thursday and or Friday. Saturday I will have to prep the bike and put it on the trailer.

While Adi and Eddie were out riding, Shelly came over to my office and took me to lunch. We went to Haute Cakes. It was an early lunch, so it wasn't crowded. That joint is a little more pricier than the surrounding restaurants, so no know-it-all junior high kids littering the place. I swear, these Newport brats need some sense smacked into them. Right after their parents get some smacking too.

Shelly, thank you again for lunch  :) There are so many restaurants there, if you came over once a week it would take several months for us to hit them all.

No, I think we should keep it OCMoto so those of us that live in the OC can continue being proud that so many "outsiders" want to join the group. Really says a lot about the quality of the members (or should I say family?).

Thanks Agustin. Definately not an elitest! It's been a pleasure meeting (and riding with) all that I have met so far. Just saying that those who started OCMoto should be very proud of what they have here. A great group of people who happen to be cycle enthusiasts.

hey tom, i love my bar end mirrors, i traded bikes with a buddy yesterday and realized how obstructed they are...oh, i put two different glass lenses in, one for close up and one for distance, made a difference for spotting those with blue lights coming up from behind..

There's a set of bar ends that I like. Will wait til after track day - no sense buying stuff not knowing what the outcome would be. If everything comes out well, I just might spring for the Leo Vince exhaust set  :)

Agustine and I want Gyro Kabob, they open at 11

A short while later Adi came over and prepped his motorbike for Sunday. We jammed over to trailer place to get one, they're taking Saturday off because no one has inquired about renting anything Saturday. The lady gave us three days for the price of two.

You'll have to explain to the young punks that you meant cotton cloth diaper, not the disposable ones. Used to be when moms would use those and a diaper service would swing by to pick them up for cleaning. Now everyone use disposable.
We used cotton cloth diapers to polish our boots and low-quarters with Kiwi, and I'm not talking about the bird or fruit. I probably still have a kit somewhere.

Micro-fiber cloth is probably better for motorbike cleaning.

This is my fav because you can see Happy Bunny along for the ride. A 120mph joyride. With the down-scaled resolution on photo-bucket, you may or may not see my rank.

The cute girl at cali photo messed up my order, the 1:40 session is not on the CD. Only the 10:40 and 11:40. There were some good ones in the 1:40 batch, and without the OCMoto gold colored vest! Gyped.

Post by: Tominator on 11/29/09 10:00PM
I was indeed comfortable, especially when I have someone's line to follow and gauge entry speed with. Drawing my own lines is still a making in progress. I can't tell you all how happy I am with my Shiver, and despite it's low HP (as compared to your 600's) I have no desire to own a sport bike. That's not to say that if someone offers me a sport bike to ride, I wouldn't take it.

Most of what the course instructor (Jhon Chen - I believe that's how Jhon is spelled on his suit) covered, Snapshot has taught us in his Skillz Day courses. The big differences were: 1) bicycle used to show effects, 2) chart graphics showing inertia and affects of hanging off a motorbike.

We (Adi, Vitaly, me) were very fortunate to have Slipp Dixon for our group/track instructor.

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well. A few of us OCMoto hippies spent the morning and evening in H.B.
Beautiful day, though the smog rolled in again. Before today it was nice and clear due to the wind conditions.

Post by: Tominator on 12/01/09 10:18PM
It's really hard to say, because I usually work and days off are instantaneous because the old guy I work for has health problems.
I usually go to my friend's donut store (I've known them since 1986) and hang with the locals. Sometimes Norm cruises by and catches me there. Sometimes I'd cruise by the Starbucks and catch other people there. It's all a cat and mouse game.

That's why we're going along with Andy with the "hippie" thing and "hanging out in H.B." thing because riders with mods hate going into H.B. But me, I could care less about the cops. I don't have any mods, therefore the cops have nothing on me. Actually, I like having cops around because a person would have to be mental to do something stupid in front of them. I've been photographing motorcycles riding by, it's fun!

Actually Hieu, a local told us that a woman was there talking on the phone with her enstranged ex. She was lieing to him, saying that she's in Seal Beach. He somehow later found out that she was lieing, he saw a photograph somehow. Was there a PI trailing her? His friend(s)?  :26: So anyway, he got to that spot and sprayed that. Or so according to my version of the story, again I'm notorious for butchering third hand information.

Earlier this morning we had to take my pops to the ER. He was breathing irregularily through his mouth, and we couldn't wake him. It wasn't anything the fireman has ever seen, a person in such deep sleep without any medical issues. My pops came to slowly as he was loaded into the ambulance, the hospital will be running the usual tests and everything. No one could explain why or what happened from the last occurence back in February.  ???

Actually Hieu, a local told us that a woman was there talking on the phone with her enstranged ex. She was lieing to him, saying that she's in Seal Beach. He somehow later found out that she was lieing, he saw a photograph somehow. Was there a PI trailing her? His friend(s)?  :26: So anyway, he got to that spot and sprayed that. Or so according to my version of the story, again I'm notorious for butchering third hand information.

Earlier this morning we had to take my pops to the ER. He was breathing irregularily through his mouth, and we couldn't wake him. It wasn't anything the fireman has ever seen, a person in such deep sleep without any medical issues. My pops came to slowly as he was loaded into the ambulance, the hospital will be running the usual tests and everything. No one could explain why or what happened from the last occurence back in February.  ???

Hieu, speaking of pothead, it's ironic that your post count is now at 420.

Hi Matt and Virginia!  :30:

The old guy is doing better than in the morning, his respiratory therapy is helping clear his lungs of phlegm/mucus. A specialist is convinced that my dad passed out and hit his head a few days ago, and that this morning's episode were connected to him forgetting a dose or two of his anti-seizure med. No MD can conclude that he's having seizures, so I'm not totally convinced that the med is necessary or that forgetting a dose caused this week's episodes. :26:

He's had a nice simple life, providing for his family and never wanting the flashy or fancy. There's just simply nothing that we can do about old age. After he comes back from the hopsital, he'll likely go back to his daily routine of sweeping the driveway and tending to his fruit trees.

Thank you everyone for your well-wishes and good thoughts, messages, and calls  :)
Kristen even popped in for a quick visit in the ER (she was working there in the morning).

"Wash the car" doesn't quite have the same meaning to them.

Other words of interest are (don't ask):
Titter
Wax
Grope
Kiss
Rub
Strip
Lick

And my personal favorite... for the view:
headlights

EDIT: Oh and they HATE being called whores

Thank you very much everyone. My folks have been in and out of hospitals so many times the past few years. The phlebotomist knows my mom well now, she even brings him fruit from her backyard  :32:
All my dad wants to do is come home, but you guys know how it goes at hospitals. They want to run tests and everything, scratch their heads, and then let you go. His roommate isn't in as good condition, so my good thoughts go out to him and his family as well.

A man and a woman who had never met before but were both married to other people found themselves assigned to the same sleeping compartment on a trans-continental train.
 

Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly -- he in the upper bunk and she in the lower.
 

At 1 a.m., the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying, "Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet and get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold."
 

"I have a better idea," she replied. "Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married."
 

"Wow! That's a great idea!" he exclaimed.
 

"Good," she replied. "Get your own fuckin' blanket."
 After a moment of silence, he farted. Twice.

Good fun times at the IMS today! As my buddies Alan, Mario and I were having coffee in Belmont Shores this morning, it seemed like an aweful lot of motorbikes were going past us. It was already 8am, so I said that we need to leave! Got there shortly, and there's already a lot of people there! I signed up to ride the Kawasaki Voyager and Papa-Ninja, and CamAm Spyder. Saw Quickie, Ian, Michelle (not Lee), Freddie wheeliless, John Li, Spyke, Boswell, Fezzer, Shiddy, Dean, Shelly, Adi, and even one of my patients!  :32: I have hundreds of patients, I ain't gonna remember everyone's name  :)

Voyager, I cranked up the 95.5 KLOS and listened to Tom Petty, Zeppelin, etc. on the ride  :29:

I chugged down 2 cans of sprite and kept forcing burps for 10-15 minutes... my stomach has finally settled.  1st and last time I ever eat uni... I probably had some rotten uni, but this ruined it for me for a while.

Fresh uni is supposed to be bright orange and creamy in texture, right?  The one I had looked pale yellow like mustard and tasted horribly rotten...

Meaning of Coincidence
Coincidence: Is it Really a Game of Chance?
Mar 6, 2008 Tamara Hanson

Coincidence has been a term used by many indicating fluke, luck or chance. But, when you look to the heart of it, you'll see there is more to it than you think.
   


Has something strange ever happened to you where you ended up brushing it off as coincidence? You know, one of those fluke things that you can’t explain, but don’t really want to attach any significance or meaning to it? For example, you think about a friend and later that day he or she calls you. Or, you are in dire need of money but really don’t know where it’s going to come from; then the very next day you find some money on the ground or a friend gives you a cheque for money he or she borrowed ages ago.

These are all general examples, but everyday, people experience some sort of unexplainable happenings such as the ones above. The sad thing is that these happenings are usually mistaken for coincidence.

Coincidence
What’s wrong with coincidence? It’s a word whose meaning has changed over the years. The word coincidence is actually two words: co and incidence, or when two things coincide. It has nothing to do with luck or chance, although that is now its current meaning.

Synchronicity
But, what about synchronicity?

First of all, what is synchronicity? Carl Jung, a huge believer in synchronicity, believed that a true synchronous event is when two or more events occur that have no relevance to one another, but still have a significant correlation. Just like in the phone example above: you think of a friend and the phone rings, and it’s the friend you were thinking of. These two circumstances are not directly related; you didn’t ‘will’ your friend to phone you, your friend phoned on his or her own accord.

Four Types of Synchronicity
In the article titled "Four Types of Synchronicity" by Mystic Life, certain types of synchronous events can be explained in one of four categories:

Predictive Synchronicity is when it reduces the ego’s hold on reality. Or in other words, two events occur and you see the relationship between them, although your mind has been taught that these things do not happen.

Guiding Synchronicity is that which ‘guides’ you or assists you, and is usually helpful. For instance, you are considering a career change and are not sure if you should go for it or stay in your present working condition. Then something happens that peaks your interest; you meet someone who works for the same company that you’ve been considering working for. Depending on whether the meeting was negative or positive, the point is that you are guided to either change careers or stay within your own job. Your answer has presented itself to you.

Reflective Synchronicity usually relates to what is happening presently. An example would be hearing a song and automatically thinking of a friend.

Ego Testing Synchronicity is where the ego is tested, hence the name. When synchronistic events occur that relate to “objects of desire”, they are often a test to see if the desire stems from a ‘healthy’ or ‘unhealthy’ drive. The example here is hearing a song that reminds you of an ex-partner, and then seeing that as a ‘sign’ to get back together with the ‘ex’. However, this could also be a wake up call to review your previous relationship with that person.

Making the Connection
James Redfield is well recognized for his book The Celestine Prophecy, where he explains in detail the nine different insights—applying significance to coincidences.

He uses the word coincidence not to say that events are only a chance encounter, but that every occurrence has a meaning, thus synchronicity.

The underlying theme of synchronicity is that everything in the universe has a connection, no matter how small or how large that connection is.

Basically, what this is saying is pay attention to the world around you; awaken to your life journey, think outside the box and move forward in life as if guided.

Synchronicity occurs for a reason; something or someone is sending you a message and all you have to do is listen and open up to it to discover what the journey is all about.

But because you're all my buddies, we can plan to go to Roscoe's next weekend. Open invite to everyone  :)
But I warn you all, if the group gets too big I'm just gonna go in by myself and eat. The wait time especially for large groups is ridiculous.

Went to IMS again this morning, saw Scott, Andy, Amanda and her friends Denise and Lee, for some reason Spyke was there, as were Justen and Vince, Ian, Michelle (not Lee). The hoochie girls didn't really arrive til like noon, perhaps to sleep off the hard partying the night previous.
These girls were there way before noon. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4018.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4018.jpg)
Leaving the Toy Ride booth, Trent and his family spot me. Cute kids!

I had to try on Princess Michelle's leopard coat. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4019.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4019.jpg) So warm!

On my way back home, this girl spots me on the street so I whip around to join her. Rode with her for a few miles on the freeway before breaking off, she's on her way to see her sister. Hey Mike, I'm hanging out with your girl AGAIN!  :32:  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_2009-12-06130439.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/2009-12-06130439.jpg)

My chain needed to be adjusted, so I stopped at Kragen, OSH, Home Depot, and none of those fools had a 32mm socket. Ended up getting it at Sear's. The girl was nice enough to give me a discount  :29:

Chain is adjusted now, ready for more riding  :17:

Took Asphalt Assault to Oh Those Donuts on Newport Blvd. this evening. Celebrity sighting - Kobe Bryant. Scott couldn't take his eyes off the foam green thong another blonde girl was wearing, he didn't get a good look at Kobe.
On the plus side: I did eat half of my hot BBQ beef sandwich. Still have the other half and a bear claw donut for when my appetite comes back.

BTW Daniel, it's spelled 'Weird'. I before E, except for after C and sometimes like in this case, W.

Took Asphalt Assault to Oh Those Donuts on Newport Blvd. this evening. Celebrity sighting - Kobe Bryant. Scott couldn't take his eyes off the foam green thong another blonde girl was wearing, he didn't get a good look at Kobe.

LOL, Hey Tom....was this why you didn't take any pics of Kobe last night?  Got rid of the evidence?  You on the lamb?  Are all Gypsies present and accounted for?

Manhunt in Kobe Bryant's Neighborhood
Posted Dec 9th 2009 11:43AM by TMZ Staff

Kobe Bryant's upscale neighborhood in Newport Beach was a dangerous place to be last night -- cops believe several gun-toting henchmen broke into a home near Kobe's place, roughed up a few residents and then ran from police.

Newport Beach police tell TMZ they suspect five men -- armed with handguns -- broke into one home, struck three residents over the head and then tried to rob them.

After a 911 call was made by someone in the backyard, cops arrived and arrested three of the men -- the other two got away and are still on the run.

We haven't been able to verify if Kobe was home at the time.

After the two men escaped, cops authorized an automated phone system to call every home in the neighborhood -- warning residents to be on the lookout for two armed men.

The call also instructed people to lock their doors and windows and call 911 immediately if they suspected anything fishy.

........I kid, I kid.....yeah, so....I look at TMZ once in awhile....SO!  I'm self-employed (read...lazy) and bored on a conference call.....funny, moderator just asked me if I was LAUGHING!  (I was!)

C'mon, Daniel. I can't give away my modus operandi.
There you have it folks. One has no need or a right to own firearms at home. The cops will protect you via automated phone system, but only if you live in Newport Beach. So far that's the only city around here that I know of that has the system, but it will call you ONLY if you register your phone number(s) with the city.

Sounds kinda suspect, that the same night his neigbors were being pistol whipped, Kobe was out and about visiting a donut store. Things that make you go hmmmmm.....  C & C Music Factory, anyone?

Oh boy, Freddie.  :13:
All I had all day was an apple pie from McDonald's, a pear, and a piece of cheezy bread. But I'm still okay, not quite at the whithering away point yet.
A plus side, the D-Store called yesterday telling me to go pick up my jacket. Got it back today. Still has my beloved bug splatters from all the long rides  :)

Jeff, is that 10$ popcorn supposed to be better than the ones we had watching that motorcycle crash documentary? One thing I like is fresh kettlecorn and fresh squeezed lemonade. Wait, is that two things?

Funny thing, Tom...  I was looking for more of that Black Diamond kettle corn when I ran into Elvis.  I doubt that pre-popped can touch it.  (Elvis aside, of course.)

Another observation...

25-pounds is a lot of dog food.  That's about $100 worth of allergen-free.

Saw this guy today.  He had a camo bandanna over his face and a skate-board helmet on.  He'd just finished bungeeing his speedometer back onto his trusty steed when I took the pic. 

I gave him an OCMoto card.

I wish it didn't make me so angry when people don't use their turn signals.

And why do people cut into your lane on the freeway when there is no one in front of you? Why is it so hard just to wait the two seconds so that you have some space? I hate when people just cut you off for no apparent reason, especially when the freeway is empty. Seriously, how much of a jerk can one really be?

http://www.slowertraffickeepright.com/

The Examiner: Some mistakenly think they are "being a good citizen by declaring himself the highway monitor. Here is why he was wrong:

    * It is against the law. Even if you are going the maximum speed limit (see California Vehicle Code 21654 below).
    * It wastes fuel. The more we use our brakes to avoid self-appointed highway monitors, the worse our MPGs.
    * It is unsafe. If everyone follows the same code, there would be little need to weave through traffic. Weaving through traffic (a bit) is legal.
    * You could cause someone to die. I am being a tad hyperbolic, but it is possible that someone is racing to the hospital for whatever reason and you are slowing them down from receiving life saving treatment
    * It is arrogant.
    * It is inconsiderate."

The Examiner: Some mistakenly think they are "being a good citizen by declaring himself the highway monitor. Here is why he was wrong:

    * It is against the law. Even if you are going the maximum speed limit (see California Vehicle Code 21654 below).
    * It wastes fuel. The more we use our brakes to avoid self-appointed highway monitors, the worse our MPGs.
    * It is unsafe. If everyone follows the same code, there would be little need to weave through traffic. Weaving through traffic (a bit) is legal.
    * You could cause someone to die. I am being a tad hyperbolic, but it is possible that someone is racing to the hospital for whatever reason and you are slowing them down from receiving life saving treatment
    * It is arrogant.
    * It is inconsiderate."

I wholeheartedly agree... though I wish our highway system was like that of Germany's.

For my high-school graduation my parents paid for a 2 month trip to tour Europe.  During my 2 weeks in Germany, driving on the Autobahn was a DREAM.  No speed limit... only common sense.  No slowpokes blocking the #1 lane (which is used as a passing lane in Europe).  If I wanted to pass someone in ANY lane, all I had to do was flash my high-beams and they immediately pulled into the right lane to let me pass.  Too bad we can't have this here in the U.S.  Too many arrogant/selfish drivers on the road.

Drove to Cycle City to check out the sale. It was pouring rain as I was heading there. Got a couple of things, pm'd the hippies - Where you at?!

(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1422.jpg)

Found out Freddie was at HOP wondering where scott and the other ocmoto peeps were, lol.   :D

Decided to meetup at one of our secret ocmoto hippie spots.

(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1430.jpg)

(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1428.jpg)

Oh oh Freddie, he's calling for a tow truck, lol.

Then we went to get some lunch.

(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1434.jpg)
(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1436.jpg)

A few more hippies were there.   ;)

(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1438.jpg)

Freddie's Jeep didn't get towed away after all. After that we all went to take care of things. I had to head back to HB to get a t-shirt for my friends daughter. Yes the dad rides a HD.

(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1441.jpg)

And had to take a picture of this.

I saw a lava lamp.

Freddie saw a sex toy.

Went out to my friends donut store for some coffee, donut, sun, and hang out with the HB locals. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_HB-1.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/HB-1.jpg)

A Segway tourguide came by and hung out as well. He enjoyed answering people's questions about his vehicle. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_Segway.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/Segway.jpg)

Nice vintage automobile went by, not too many bikers this morning. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_Vintage.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/Vintage.jpg)

This local (rides a HD) rolls his own, a real man's smoke! (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_roll.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/roll.jpg)

Jinx was there, he had a tiny dog with him (Chloe) and I didn't have the camera out yet. Jinx had to go, but Chloe wanted to stay with us guys in the sun.

I've known the owners of the donut shop since 1986 and H.B.P.D. has never pulled me whether I'm in a car, on motorbike or bicycle. And I've been to Main Street plenty of times to drink with friends. Your experiences with law enforcement personnel is what you make of it. If you neglect your vehicle and drive around with a busted headlight or ride around bouncing your RPM at 14k, then you're just asking to get pulled.

Kinda like this girl, out-of-state plate but probably has been here more than ten days. She pretty much rolled across the 4-way stop yakking on her phone. Motorcop does a U-turn and lights her up. If you look at Eddie's photo, her right stop light is out. Right there is three potential things for the cop to write her up on.

Speaking for myself, sometimes I focus so much on how things were and what I had that I forget to be thankful for what I still have. I forget that there are other people out there that are struggling every day and getting by with less.

I also take for granted that my loved ones are only here for a short time and one they will be gone. I need to learn to appreciate their company and treasure what time I do have with them.

It was okay for me, Adi said its not the same as the original and Freddie did not like it. His soda was bad and he got a dog that had sauerkraut and he does not like sauerkraut, lol.

Then we took a short ride back to HB to chill some more.

Only six motorbikes showed up, we had excellent service from two ladies. Ian also showed up for a spinich dip. Adi and I enjoyed our CAO cigars. Maximar Cigars was also there, they have some of my favorite brands such as Acid, Fuente, Padron. Tonight at OG Mike's is also the holiday Santa Ana 911 event for cops and firefighters.

I never noticed that the buck is enjoying a cigar: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_OGMikes.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/OGMikes.jpg)

Everyone should get a free balloon ride before they start charging, it's just a matter of time. The Lyon Air Museum that Eddie and I visited, they've start charging.
Sometimes I miss going for joyrides in helicopters, but not really (I almost fell out of one). That's a BIG ASS Rooskie gunship!

Tom asked me if I wanted to go on it before but I don't like heights, lol.   :D

I ride on Supreme Scream when I go to Knott's so a balloon ride is pretty mellow.

sorry I'm quoting myself, but oh well...


When I first started riding, I thought the 929RR Erion was the HOTTEST bike out there. The Telefonica Movistar GSX-R600 was super hot too, but not like that 929. So hard to find one of those these days that hasn't be completely molested.

Good morning OCMoto!

- Ninja Surfin, I hate riding by myself because I too become invisible. Last night on my way to Original Mike's, I had to ride more aggressive through stupid Santa Ana traffic.
And what is up with idiots who tail a bus, and then decide they no longer want that lane when the bus makes a stop?!  ???

- TripleStack, member BOSTON has an Erion. He's been hibernating though, haven't seen him in ages.

Why do people automatically assume the worst in others?  It's one thing to judge others by their behavior in-person, where it is easier to see their true persona.  But forming a dislike, or even a hatred for someone based on their behavior online?  That's just not right.

But then some people have two very different persona.  The person they are in real life and then the person they are online.  Sometimes you get a better idea of who the person is on the inside by how they interact online.

Good point.  Most people become a bit more extroverted online because of the feeling of anonymity that the internet can provide.  However, for the most part, most people I encounter online pretty much display the same characteristics in behavior while in-person.  I'd say that applies to a good 90% of people. 

I know people think I'm obnoxious because "post too much" online... there's a reason for that.  When I go to bike nights it's difficult for me to communicate as efficiently as most other people do (because of my hearing loss), this leaves me feeling sort of left out.  Therefore, I am more apt to posting and conversing online because that is a much more efficient medium of communication for me.  I guess this rubs some people the wrong way, and I can understand... but they have to understand how I feel as well.

Kareem....I think you're cool....People who judge to quick and don't take a minute to talk with you are missing out.  When I first met you I thought you weren't acknowledging me when I spoke.  Then a moment later I noticed you would position yourself to read my lips and get closer when I spoke, then I noticed your hearing aids.  I think you acknowledging the loss and giving people the benefit of the doubt before you judge is a definite strength.....knowing it's a 2 way street of sorts. +1

Another thing.....I've always liked Chris Weirs signature.....something about it takes a stronger person to forgive....

We then rode to Supreme Donuts to meetup with Doyle.

So I need to catch up with my Christmas movies for the year.  Only a week left to watch them all!  I've got White Christmas in now (Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye) and it's pretty cool.  (Dan - I like Fred Astaire as well - a classic performer never goes out of style ;D)  Next up is A Christmas Story, then Miracle on 34th Street (the old one), Muppet Christmas Carol, Scrooged, and who can forget It's a Wonderful Life.  What am I missing?

For all this I have not even put up my Christmas tree yet.  It probably won't go up this year.  Ran out out of time and now I just want to relax and enjoy the season with friends and family!

Nice list Lea.....I really like Scrooged but haven't seen it in it a couple of years.  The others seem to always be on.  Another family favorite for me is "White Christmas" with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye.....Funny...."Elf" has become a recent family favorite...tho, I like the classics myself....

  I've got White Christmas in now (Bong Crosby and Danny Kaye) and it's pretty cool. 

At the Cars and Coffee this morning - an SS900. The guy's the original owner, bought it from way back when there was a Ducati dealer in Garden Grove. I've been in that store to look, never caught the Ducati bug: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_Duc900.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/Duc900.jpg)

I'd like to take this opportunity to give a thumbs down to Doyle for showing up to the WRONG "cars and coffee"  ;),
and to call out Mike Hooligan for rolling in late after 8:20. Steve and I took off at 8:05, there were already cars leaving. However, Doyle managed to link up with us in HB and we all rolled to Motorhelmets.

A Pontiac GTO/El Camino combo. GXR Steve's friend built it, took 15-years to do so. Everybody loves an old GOAT!  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_GTOCamino.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/GTOCamino.jpg)

My apologies for not taking more photographs this morning, low-light photography with long exposure is tricky without a tripod. Using the flash just does not produce a live look.

At Ducati dealer in the morning, I observed wind conditions that caused inbound/outbound aircraft to switch directions at SNA: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DNB.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DNB.jpg)

I'm gonna start calling the Ducati dealership "Ducati Costa Mesa". It's kinda like shops and businesses within a 2-mile radius of South Coast Plaza using expressions like, "Next to South Coast Plaza".
Ducati Newport Beach, 1601 Newport Blvd, Costa Mesa, CA 92627

Adi and I got bored so we bought a clubhouse. Since it's not an official OCMoto sanctioned house, it is strictly by personal invitation only. So, don't get all butt hurt if you're not invited.  :32:  Seriously, don't ask to be invited - it's tacky.

You mentioned that before.  Is it over on Trask?  I'm thoroughly intrigued.  I can't find anything that references the group online except a phone number.

It's on Trask.  I've ridden by there a few times.  Never noticed any activity. 

Probably a bunch of hippies...

I've gone past that little building (it's not a home) for twenty + years. You all have to keep in mind that I'm older than Daniel (Diz), at 52-years old. One day I took Adi and Shelly there and said, "We need this!". Well, not so much as really need it 'cus Adi wants to buy a house and I kinda want to too one day, but property taxes, upkeep, and all that is just so depressing.

On a different topic, I might need to adjust my attitude and stop calling bad women drivers 'w***e', 'dumb w***e', and 'stupid w***e'. One day one of them will flip a U and chase me down, run me over. You never know what demented  'w***es' are capable of doing. Those who have riden with me know what I'm talking about regarding the whole 'w***e' issue.

Have you guys heard of Bruegger's Bagels 2010 Bottomless Mug Club for $109? For $109, you get a mug that you can have filled at anytime, any Bruegger's with coffee, tea, or soda in the year 2010. It's a bagel shop, they close at 2-2:30 so it's not like I could have a fill of soda when I get off work. I spend that much at the 7-11 every month, so the Mug Club just might be a better value for me. Your thoughts?

Also, I still want to mount a shotgun on my motorbike because I can. Nothing illegal about having an empty firearm secured in a rack, in/on a vehicle. I don't think the PD would like firearms, bongs, and a bunch of hippies associating at the clubhouse. So, we will refer to the bongs as "decorative blown glass". Verstanden sie, mein herr?  ;)

What a nice morning! Went to Huntington Beach and hung out with the locals for a bit. I was there on PCH looking for subjects to photograph, three bicyclists going southbound - the girl sees me and shouts out, "OCMoto!" and I'm like, "That's right!". Thanks for the shout out, I have no idea who it was so if you see this, be sure to holla here!  :29:

An RSV4 went by, we weren't convinced the guy knew how to ride. He's probably very experienced and just messing around, but there might be a chance that he's a dummy and will end up crashing it.

$1.99 a DAY?! He must've ate like a king! On the island I survived on subsidized breakfast costing 15cents and lunch of 35cents. Starfruit, mangoes, coconuts, other tropical fruits, coconut crabs, and luaus implemented the rest of the diet. When farmers cooked 300-lb pigs, everyone went and ate. And I mean everyone, everyone's a neighbor and friend. If I had a sponsor of $1.99 a day, I would've ate prime rib. Maybe that's why I appreciated the military, I was fed three times a day. Even last year when I went to Fort Benning, it brought back a flood of memories. Some sights, smells, and flavors just don't change. Thanks to olfactory memory, smells of crayons and Coco Chanel would flash me back to the days on the island.

Some people like Jennifer Christine would say that a day like today's too "windy to ride". I had fun on my 50-mile loop today. Hardly any people on the beaches or in the water. Guess the pounding surf, wind and current put the small crafts on advisory. A boat captain was reportedly to have said, "Arrrgh, she swallowed me whole!" in regards to the ocean taking down his craft.

A few of us went to Main Street Huntington Beach tonight. I had the bratwurst for dinner, loaded with extra grilled onions. After dinner Freddie got some fresh roasted cashew nuts. I grabbed a handful of his warm salty nuts and enjoyed them - they're small but that's alright. Not everyone has big nuts. We all took a stroll all the way down to the pier. The whole time Freddie was bitching about 'cold' this, 'freezing' that, pussy. We should send his ass up to the Arctic Circle for his next assignment.

I also rented District 9, G.I. Joe, and Transformers today. District 9 is a good documentary, it's pretty much how my Suid Afrikaan friends remember it. I love how movies like G.I. Joe would have characters clad in tight sexy outfits with boobs sticking out in your face, maybe I joined the wrong Army or something. All I remember are the sexy Air Force women from some of my assignments. If I could do it all over, I'd join the Air Force. Then I could've been the one leaving people like Mother's mark stranded in third-world countries.

That was the life of an OCMoto hippie today. It is to be repeated tomorrow, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  :29:

It was a chilly morning, but I still went out for a run with Domo on the backseat. We ran 133, not as plush and green as in the spring.  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4135.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4135.jpg)

Returned my DVD rentals and went to visit my girls at the Coffee Bean. I got a chocolate chunk cookie, hot chocolate, and cheesecake. I'm gonna be deserted out for a while. It's terrible not working, I've lost track of what day it is. Come Friday I'll yell out the window, "Tell me boy, what day is this?!", and the kid will reply, "It's Christmas, sir!".

 :26:  I know I ought to eat healthier and it's my own responsibility to do so. Tonight's overabundance of sweets was due to the generosity of the employees (I didn't buy it, I know - excuses excuses). Didn't the Coneheads like fruit cakes? I can go for a fruit cake right about now (just kidding!). A couple of weeks ago I was ill'n and lost eight pounds. I still don't have my appetite back, and the sweet tooth remains. The Tooth Fairy is a personal friend of mine and despite my vigilant brushing and flossing, carries may still occur.

Got my Continental sport touring tires today, they were ordered only on Saturday. I'm counting on them to last far longer than the OEM Qualifiers.
There are three motorbikes at my home now, who's up for some nice rides? I'm off til Monday.  :29:

btw: my last CBC including cholesterol level results were very good!  :29:

Just jealous Tom. I had to work for every pound I lost after turning 50. Was 200, now 160, and quite proud of it. I feel like I'm 25 again!
My FZ6R came with Dunlop Roadsmart's and I love 'em. 4K and still go'in strong. Longest I ever got before from a rear was 2K. Front still has at least another 4k left in it.
  Would love to ride this weekend. Have to work the 24th, but free after that till monday. I REALLY wanna ride this weekend! Who's up?

Gas - I've never been cold like that on a motorbike. Adi helped me put in heated grips this past Saturday on my Shiver, I love 'em! I've got Asphalt Assault's BMW motorbike in my garage, that too has heated grips but mine are better and cost two hundred bucks less. I also picked up a pair of winter gloves from AJ a couple of months, you know, the kind with the soft insulated insides. They say Yamaha on them, but work better than regular gloves in these cold months. If you want them, they're yours for the asking (size Large).

I have been cold in the water to the point where I was actually blue, and so cold many times where I couldn't sleep and shivered the nights away. Maybe that's why I'm partial to the Aprilia Shiver and I park her in a nice garage?  :26:

Took Domo out for a chill ride on Scott's BMW motorbike this morning. Got to the donut shop and Eddie has been there for a few minutes already. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4144.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4144.jpg)

It's a mini motorcycle show at the BUX. The three guys are checking out an old Triumph, think they said it's a '72.  :29: That's way cool, the one I rode back in the day was a '78. Eddie's putting his purchase away in his tail bag. I can't say what it is.: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4148.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4148.jpg)

Freddie was having new tires put on his GSXR, so Eddie and I took off for Rancho Palos Verdes. Eddie hasn't been feeling too well since Monday, but he and I had a need to ride. On our way, two Icon warriors intercepted us. The one with the mohawk got between me and Eddie, and I was like -Okaaaaayyyyyy.......  Mohawk guy is running on racetrack slicks and I'm not convinced he knows how to ride. He was hogging the center part of the lane and almost collided with his buddy. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4149.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4149.jpg)

That's why I want a helmet-mounted camera with remote, so I can capture all kinds of moments and images without having to pull out the real camera.

We get to Palos Verdes and had fun! Apparently there's some kind of snake on the road somewhere: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4150.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4150.jpg)

A couple of different stops: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4155.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4155.jpg)  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4156.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4156.jpg)

On our way back we stopped at Gyro Kabob for lunch. I had the gyro and a big can of Mucho Mango. Eddie had the gyro burrito. For dinner I had a portebello mushroom burger. A little better than last night, where I had a cookie, hot chocolate, and cheesecake.

My friend Michael checks out Scott's BMW. Mike was the one who showed me OCMoto. Yeah, he's got his work apron on. Don't laugh. At least he has a job, car, and a motorbike. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4168.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4168.jpg)

What a great ride today! I've been wanting to go to Malibu, but no one here seems to want to ride due to various reasons. I went to the 76 and had a cup of fuel station coffee, and sure enough a group amassed and they were going where I wanted to go. What a diverse group, sport bikes (a lot of Ducatis), four cruisers, and girl riders!

(http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_meetup-1.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/meetup-1.jpg)  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_meetup2.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/meetup2.jpg)

I got to follow/look at this. Her riding style's like mine  :29: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_stop.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/stop.jpg)

We stopped at the Rockstore, Mr and Ms Bling weren't there. The rare red BMW was there (imported for only one year). No celebrities today. For those who go to the rockstore, you'll know wtf I'm talking about.

(http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_Rockstore-1.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/Rockstore-1.jpg)  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_Rockstore2.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/Rockstore2.jpg)

This is the ringleader. Don't let her Christmas colors fool you - she'll cut you up. That's right, she pilots her own FZ6. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_Jody.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/Jody.jpg)

Most of them went to have sushi lunch. Everyone was welcomed, but two cruisers and I had to come back. I led the two cruisers to PCH, Sunset, and the 405. Any other time when I'd have less to do, I'd be all over that sushi lunch. I wanted to take Latigo, but wasn't sure if the cruisers were up for it. Hopefully they had fun on the way to Rockstore and on Sunset.

I hope to ride with these people again  :)

Freddie, the choice is yours. Just remember that karma comes back to bite you in your ass like so many times before (especially when it comes to girls)  :32:
Just admit that I've won this one.  :)  One thing you should never forget is that Tom isn't always right, but he is right.

btw - any day you come back from Ortega unhurt is indeed a good day.

Took my new S-MX2 (boots) out for a ride this afternoon.  Did not see any ocmoto peeps saw a few on Main in HB.  Going north approaching dog beach, behind came a rider making himself known in traffic with loud noise on revs and splitting lanes.  At the light, he popped a 6" high 3' long wheelie on the lane next to me.  I was "huh", that would make him a hero in his HD village?!  By the way, I think it was a sportster 1200.  I kept him company up to Sunset Beach then did a quick "you are too slow" good bye before turning back.

Waiting for the light at Main & PCH, the dude in a bimmer two lanes over on my right hand signaled me to do a wheelie.  I laughed and signaled him back "around here, wheelie popping is bad".

Wow, wheelie or not wheelie!  I would not let my moment of stupidity gets in cohort with the powerband of the ZX6R to ruin the nice ride/day.

Have a happy holidays!

You know what pisses me off? I have a friend who CHOSE unemployment because he was no longer happy with his job. He moved into an apartment with his GF and purchased 2 dogs. Now one dog broke his femur and had to have surgery. It cost $1500 for the procedure and that doesn't include after care. He used a friends credit card to pay for the surgery and now is asking for money from his friends so he can pay her back. Now had he chosen to stay at his well paying job he could have easily afforded the surgery, after care and whatever else the dog may have needed.

It pisses me off that he had it easy then chose to put himself in a shit position and now wants me to fork over my hard earned money to pay for his pet. fudge that. Sign the dog over to the vet let them do the surgery and adopt it out once it's healed.

If I have said it once I have said it a thousand times Pets are a LUXURY do not buy one or adopt one if you don't have the extra cash to pay for whatever stupid shit may happen.

AND sure as shit don't ask me for money when you quit your job without having another one lined up. Jackass.


Oh and I'm leaving for the airport now so I can go spend a week with my pops. Hells yeah.

So true! Sometimes people don't realize the expenses a pet can incur.

How funny is it that my sister for a long time didn't have medical insurance but she was paying for a medical insurance for her dog. -This is a whole other can or worms. Lol.

Enjoy your trip!!!

Yeah...love those.  I usually respond by pointing at their girlfriend and then making a gesture that I'd like them to do in return.  If no female, I rub my fingers and extend my hand...as in...'pay me'.

Rode to Original House of Pancakes in Anahiem to have breakfast with a few ocmoto peeps. Some were at Cars and Coffee earlier.

Then everyone went their merry way, Hieu and I stopped at the HB Starbucks. There was a yellow O Ninja and Triumph parked there but they left when I was getting a coffee.

In Balboa, the ocmoto guys are desirable! 

Here are a few facts:  The first piegon did a fly by to scare off Hello Kitty.  After that, one piegon wanted Tom's banana.  Finally, one of the piegons went for Eddie's nuts.  If I could put two and two together ... oh well, draw your own conclusion on the sex of this group of piegons and what they want from the ocmoto guys. 

Fun time enjoyed!

And Suzuki's story of the cop that pulled him over for doing a wheelie asking how old are you?!

He was 60 when that happened. How old are you? He gave him a fix-it ticket.  :D

Now I remember seeing Suzuki before, I was riding to the D-Store from Ruby's on PCH - he did that same step-over thing like when he left Starbucks, not sure if it was the same BMW but it was a BMW also.   8)

EDIT: And when Suzuki was on PCH he didn't cross over the double yellow either. He was way over the other lane when he left Starbucks?!

Post by: Tominator on 12/26/09 09:10PM
The day started with Cars and Coffee, it was Twisted's first time there so I went to his place and we rode over together. We were the first two motorbikes on location, parked and got our joe. Soon after that the coffee line grew ridiculous! A few minutes later Scott (Mothersmark) and Tera roll in on his Buell. It was also Don and Hieu's first time there, the poor guys didn't know that they could ride straight in and have VIP parking. Someone sent Don back in on his motorbike, I guess no one caught Hieu and told him the same.

This little guy was the most comfortable creature around. He doesn't know what the term 'cold' is. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4189.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4189.jpg)

There were quite a few other dogs there, some wanted to get into the mix of a dogfight.

I'm so glad I didn't wear my blue Joe Rocket jacket. Tera and Don had theirs on, it would've been awkward fashion faux paux..... (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4190.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4190.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4193.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4193.jpg)  For those who don't know, that's Scott (Mothersmark) in the orange Icon vest and his lady Tera. Man, I hope I have the name right, Tara, Tera, Cotta, ..... Scott's a real American hero, a Marine Sergeant. Don't waste his time with your stupid piddly questions of, "Hey, do you no a Private Johnson?" or "did you kill anyone." Of course he's killed, dozens and dozens with his bare hands!

Scott and I made our way to GMR back in February, we took the long way. Verrrrry long way..... Those who remember or not, I dropped my Seca and the windscreen shattered on his front tire. I did the Arizona trip without a screen, that sucked motzo balls. Speaking of which, the 2nd Annual Heart Attack event is coming up quick - end of February. It's a fun ride with a great destination. Go if you can, and if you can't don't whine about it. That's not productive or cool.

The biggest crowd-drawing display - a Tucker. For you young punk asses who don't know shit about history, this car is VERY rare (51 made) and a huge part of automotive innovation. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4191.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4191.jpg)

Man, Suzuki is my hero!  :32: I was so worn out from having only five hours of sleep, would've loved to roll with you guys.

I got a couple of presents this year  :26:, still haven't opened them. Weren't we supposed to box them up today and exchange them? These holidays are too confusing.

Let me no how HB went if I new you guys were going to HB I wouldov skiped my nap. I here the cops their are nazi's-s even tho I never been to HB cus I jump on bandwagon and try overly hard to b popular

oooooh ooooh oooooh so many bikes out there and I finally found the one that I always wanted.
sorry I'm quoting myself, but oh well...


When I first started riding, I thought the 929RR Erion was the HOTTEST bike out there. The Telefonica Movistar GSX-R600 was super hot too, but not like that 929. So hard to find one of those these days that hasn't be completely molested.

I then went to another coffee shop, came home to adjust the chain on the old Kawi to find that the rear tire's flat. It picked up a nail on that Grand Canyon trip last week. Thanks for the punctured tire.

Twisted, don't you mean the synagogue in Santa Monica? Santa Barbara's quite a ways up north. I stopped in the synagogue once, weren't any services being held. I got gypped.

Wow, I also found my rear tire flat by a tiny nail two days after the Grand Canyon ride!!

I'm beginning to suspect the Grand Canyon locals had something to do with this ... we should ride back to the town of Williams, Arizona (Population: 3000) and start something!! Broomm, broomm, broomm, broomm, brmmmm, brmmmm!!!  :20: :32:  :32:  :32:

Well I got off to a late start this morning.   :(

Ryan from Metric Method is ordering chain and sprockets for me.

Had to check out a spot for lunch, it was great!   :29:

Then I rode to HB and ran into Freddie.

Good day, comrades!
Where did all the riders disappear off to today?  :26: The only two motorcyclists that I saw were off Bake/Rockfield in Lake Forest, by Ducati/Cycle City.

Took Scott's motorcycle in to Metric Method this morning for a fresh front tire. Ryan took the motorcycle in right away and got crackin' while I flipped through a moto magazine. The tire change was done quickly, and soon I was on my way to break-in the fresh tire. The January 2010 issue of 2WT btw, features OG Mike's as the virtual bike night of the month (November) - the photos show OCMoto bikes and members  :29:
And boy, what a difference in handling and feel a new tire makes! Made my way through 133 and took PCH, didn't see any other motorcycles. No idea if any motorist thought I was nuts for riding, but I was having a good time.
Stopped in HB for a couple of photographs: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4230.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4230.jpg)  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4236.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4236.jpg)

Came home and wiped the motorbike down, tire break-in to be continued tomorrow..... I ain't gonna let a 20% chance of precipitation stop me from getting rid of the chicken strips.....

Stay warm and be well!


.....  Some random hippie was passing out candy, .....

I'll teach you to take candy from filthy hippies!   :23:

Thought of the day: What an awesome New Years Day! Spent a few hours having sushi and hanging out in Huntington Beach with some of the people that I see most frequently. As the months come around, I hope to see those whom I don't get to see so often at rides, bike nights, and various events. There shall be many more Julian/Borrego, Malibu, ACH, Arizona, camping trips, etc. etc.!

2009 was a crappy year job-wise, but great OCMoto-wise! It is an honour to be entrusted with your access codes, keys, and motorcycles. I can only wish that our trust and friendship will grow.  :29:  :17:

Here ya go...

Meaning Of The Master Number 22

The 22 is a highly charged version of the 4 and all characteristics that apply for number 4 also apply for number 22. The characteristics represented by number 4 are enhanced in the master number 22.


The following are some typical characteristics of the master number 22:

The 22 is also known as the master builder. It is potentially the most successful of all number and it can turn the most ambitious dreams into reality. The 22 has the intuitive insights of the 2 combined with the practicality of the 4.

22's have to be practical otherwise they waste their potential. 22's can deal well with a great variety of people and they are inspirational and intuitive, practical, self-confident, visionary, idealistic and have good common sense.

Like 11's, 22's have to work towards the realization of larger goals that are beyond personal ambition.


We'd best not get into 19...


Ride well,

J~

She asked what 010110 translated to... not 00010110.

The answer is as follows:

1   2   4   8   16   32
0   1   0   1    1    0

Add up the numbers above all the ones. You get 26.

Basically to translate binary, you multiply each binary number times 2 to the power of it's place (starting with the 0 for the first place).  Then you sum up all the numbers.

- Kareem

EDIT: Unless you want ASCII characters, then the binary code has to be divisible by 8 and as the two previous posters pointed out 00010110 is the ASCII representation of the number 22.

I thought binary added up right to left?  I don't know binary but I do know how to count in other bases and those are figured out right to left.

Your correct, it's right to left. But sometimes, things are better just left unsaid.

After the News Years sushi lunch there was talk of going to Malibu today. Well things changed but I knew a SVR guy wanted to go so I rode up there to meet him.

The moon this morning.

I got gas at the Chevron (cute girl works there) then went to the 76 for coffee.  ;)   Gas prices are the same at both stations.

Hi Eddie! I'm glad you were able to go to Malibu today. Was cutie Amanda working at Neptune's?
I prefer the Chevron myself, I mean look at the driveway - it's there on PCH! I don't understand why groups still insist on meeting up at the 76, getting out of there can be hazardous and you leave riders behind.

I joined Trent and Agustin on a Julian run today, it was fantastic! (minus the jackasses who insisted on driving 35mph and/or didn't think that turnouts applied to them). We have concluded that Mesa Grande (some sort of large table) would NOT be part of the January 24 Julian/Borrego trip. Those who wish to run Mesa Grande may do so at any time of their choosing.

The morning started off with the three of us at my Coffee Bean. I heart my girls there, and tipped them five bucks because they're cute and they take care of me. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4263.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4263.jpg)

We stopped at 76 off Ortega to see if any rider(s) wanted in on our reconnoiter run. We're such bad people, parked in the No Parking red zone  ::) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4264.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4264.jpg)

Soccer Hooligan BritGal Amanda wouldn't approve  :6:  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_2010-01-02121338.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/2010-01-02121338.jpg)

Crikey! I just figured out why my photos have been coming out grainy lately, the ISO setting wasn't put back to Auto mode  :(

I wanted to go to Malibu last week, but no one here wanted to go.

Gas, welcome back! Perhaps I can get those winter gloves to you sometime soon. I've been enjoying my heated grips, those in conjunction with winter gloves are just too much. No need to inspect your weapon, Corporal. You're a grown adult, I trust that you respect your firearms.  :29:

I got the fish and chips, guess it's not too authentic since it's made with tilapia and not served on newspaper, no malt vinegar either!. Soccer Hooligan BritGal Amanda wouldn't approve  :6:  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_2010-01-02121338.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/2010-01-02121338.jpg)

Crikey! I just figured out why my photos have been coming out grainy lately, the ISO setting wasn't put back to Auto mode  :(

I wanted to go to Malibu last week, but no one here wanted to go.

Gas, welcome back! Perhaps I can get those winter gloves to you sometime soon. I've been enjoying my heated grips, those in conjunction with winter gloves are just too much. No need to inspect your weapon, Corporal. You're a grown adult, I trust that you respect your firearms.  :29:

Today was a great ride, started off a bit on the cold side but the day just kept getting better as it went on. It was great riding with both Tom and Trent today, exploring was fun and the food was good. I can honestly say that I had been craving that burger since I sampled a piece the last time I was in Julian, this time it was the burger that took center stage and not the pie.

What Tom is neglecting to post is a photo of him trying to ride those horses.

In the words of my former next door neighbor, Ice Cube, "Today was a good day."

Thought of the day:

Watching disaster and zombie movies always make me thankful I lead a normal life. I can go to bed without having to worry about some deadly disease or natural disaster wiping out the world's population. There are no zombies who are going to break through the windows of my house and eat my brains. No vampiress sucubuses who will steal my husband from me. That are no meteorites the size of football fields barreling toward earth at ludacris speeds.

I'll wake up the next day and everything will be just as it was the day before. Assuming that none of those movies have any truth to them...at all.










They don't right?

For all intents and purposes, there's a big portion of the populous that might as well be zombies: they lack the ability to think for themselves and merely follow mindless routines. They don't live life, so they're basically the living dead. I'm still waiting for them to start drooling and shuffling around aimlessly.

Hanging out in HB this morning, there's another canine in the front seat. Those two were great vehicle anti-theft devices: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4286.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4286.jpg)

My buddies: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4287.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4287.jpg)

Pink wheels. I thought it was a guy driving.  :26: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4291.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4291.jpg)

I've seen this motorbike at D-Store. I will bet $20 that I'll find Asian parts on that motorcycle, tires are South-American made if I remember right. All I'll need is one Asian part and I'll win. Most bulbs are European or Asian made. That non-"DOT" helmet was probably made in China. Plate reads NONRICE. Can I get one to say NONHOG? (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4299.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4299.jpg)

Waves were pounding, but the surfers loved it. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4308.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4308.jpg)  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4306.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4306.jpg)

These two intercept us, in their car! We sent them home to get their motorbikes. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4309.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4309.jpg)

Then we went to Knowlwoods for this: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4310.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4310.jpg)  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4311.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4311.jpg)

Went to Cycle Gear to get Artemis some fresh oil. Special thanks to Eddie for bringing the oil home for me. I thought we were going out riding and didn't bring a backpack. This is an ultra clean Yamaha 500 outside Cycle Gear: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4313.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4313.jpg)

Followed by going to Cook's Corner. We spotted Mike and Kristen along the way  :29:. Then I thought we passed Russ and his friends. It was Domo's first time out at Cook's. He wasn't impressed. (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4315.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4315.jpg)  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4317.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4317.jpg)

Then Agustin came over to help me shave some metal off the engine block. A CAD design fault left a lip on the block, causing non-OEM oil filters to hit it and not seat completely flush. We changed the oil in Artemis, she's so much happier now. Motor is running smooth, and shifting is nice. Seven thousand miles on the new motorbike baby!  :29: We went to the Costco for Polish dogs and pizza. This cutie was guarding her vehicle: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4318.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4318.jpg)

And special for Agustin because he's a BIG fan: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_DSCF4312.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/DSCF4312.jpg)

Soccer Hooligan BritGal Amanda came by and got the old Kawasaki, she'll put some more miles on it. All this zombie talk is making me hungry again. Who wants brains?

*edit: I also showed Eddie the damage that was done to the clubhouse by a drunk driver. Adi and I won't be buying it anymore.

The rims are usually made in China.  Check the rims on the Buell's.  

Andy (Space Racer) and I went to Oterga a few weeks ago.  A proud owner of the Buell was bragging about where the bike was made.  I told him that the rims are made in China.  He did not believe me so I walked over and pointed out the raised letterings "made in China" on his rims.  I guess, I disappointed him and threw his pride off the cliff on Lake Elsinore side.

By the way, I think the plate is "ON RICE".  Check again.

Freddie is there, his bike is between the first 3 bikes on the left. Jinx was there, he rode his Yamaha to the Rock Store. his Yamaha is parked next to my bike. Chilled there for a while, then headed for home.

Rode to HB to try out Johnny Rockets on PCH and 5th St.

(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1941.jpg)

The food was great! Would be a cool place to go but the only drawback is the parking.   :(

(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss107/astroboy420/ocmoto/IMG_1942.jpg)

The owner mentioned there's a parking area for the workers on 5th St. but she said she could probably reserve it for a bike nite. I parked at Supreme Donuts on 6th St.

Gas, you should be happy they didn't draw on you with Sharpies.

Man, it was nice in the sun this morning! A local couple rolled up on a 1987 Harley Davidson. The guy bought it as a birthday present back in '87 (original owner), has put over 110k miles on it. Not bad, and his wife did say they're fair-weather riders.  (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/th_87HD.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/87HD.jpg)

I disagree. Krispy Kremes are delicious regardless. However, I will note that the thicker, cakier, old fashion & cream chese style are better.

Another nice day out at the beach! Met Eddie for a cup of coffee, took a couple of photographs and my rechargeable batteries went extremely low, enough for a couple of more shots so I packed the camera away.

Not as hot out as yesterday, so no peeps laying out on the sand but a TON of surfers! It's tough being a hippie.

TripleStack, what kind of Mustang? 5.0? I've noticed that there aren't any 4-cylinder Mustangs on the road anymore. Also, haven't seen a VW Toureg in a while. It's like they all disappeared.

*edit: not many bikers out this morning. Did see a Boss Hoss roll through.

The weather was great for riding. Rode to OTD for oil and filter, they filed Chapter 11, and no oil.   :P

Rode back to the beach, stopped for lunch.

(http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc114/eddiemon_1955/ocmoto/IMG_2029.jpg)

After lunch I rode to NB Ducati, the 796 was sitting outside. Eric says, "You want to demo ride it?"

(http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc114/eddiemon_1955/ocmoto/IMG_2032.jpg)

Sure!    :17:

Then I cruised to the HB Starbucks. Then rode to GG Suzuki to get my oil, Chad said he would give me the discount so I'll be going there from now on.

I usually wait for them to open their mouth before making that call.  I've seen some pretty chill exotic owners, my next door neighbor is a perfect example.  He's got a nice red Ferrari 360 spider, a Lamborghini Gallardo and a 427 Cobra sitting in his garage.  One day he was washing the lambo, waved me down (I was working on my evo in the garage) and made some small talk.  All of a sudden he says, "Can you do me a favor?  Take it for a spin to dry it off".  I was on cloud 9 for a good few hours.  :D

I liked the 796 but I liked the 1100 more.

It's about 14 less hp, 13 lbs. less weight, around 20 ft lb less torque, around $2K+ costs.

Ducati should have made the 796 before the 1100 imo.

I told her I would not be participating in her poker tournament because i disagreed with the reason why it was happening. I continued on to explain why I disagreed, she said fudge you and blocked me on FB. Pretty damn lame but oh well, I don't care that much anyway. She was a fair weather friend at best.

Cute at best, Big tits though. But she did get a tattoo right in the middle of her chest which is a big turn off, don't tattoo on or around titties thats like tagging over the mona lisa.

She was having the poker tourney because she accrued debt that she can't afford. So all the monies go to her so she can pay off $1500 she put on a friends credit card.

I think that is total crap, basically if all goes according to her plan she will never have to pay one penny of her own on that debt.

WTF?  Is she counting on winning her way up to the $1,500 she owes or is it like an entry fee thing which goes toward her debt so she gets it paid regardless?

Either way... if she's planning to win $1,500 she's gonna wind up in more debt than she's in now, and if she's collecting donations from tournament go-ers that's just fluffing wrong.

My Ex-GF put me in over $19,000 in debt, you don't see me trying to host a charity event to bail myself out.  :6:

TripleStack, what kind of Mustang? 5.0? I've noticed that there aren't any 4-cylinder Mustangs on the road anymore.
it sure would be nice if it was a 5.0!

but it's a little on the older side...

The buy-ins go to her, $20x30peeps straight to her pocket, so really anyone who goes is just handing money over without any return or possibility of return by winning.

I have over 10 grand in debt, I accrued it and now I'm paying it, what a novel idea!

A buddy of mine had 20g in his bank then he got with his gf and now is in about 350g in debt.

Ever gotten caught doing something innocuous (but embarrasing) in the car?   :5:

Safety Dance was on the radio this morning.  I'll admit it - I have always been a car dancer and being a child of the 80s I could not resist.  So I'm in my own little world dancing behind the wheel and I look over and there is a guy in a work truck just staring and laughing at me!  He points to his radio and starts car dancing along with me.  I cracked up and we kind of did our dances until the light turned green.

It was very funny.  But I guess it goes to show how isolated we feel in our cages!!!   :32:

Probaly a good thing I don't listen to music on the bike because I would be laughed out of OCMoto no doubt!

So do you think that Safety Dance was supposed to be named Safe To Dance?  That would make more sense with the lyrics.  I kind of think of it like Iron Butterfly's Enna Gadda Da Vida was supposed to be In the Garden of Eden...

that would be embracing my inner redneck for sure. it's tough driving a relatively small car with an engine that size in it though. the 454 in the other car is more than enough and extremely difficult to drive in the wet

Weekend is off to a great start. I've had my motorcycle boots on for over eighteen hours, thought I was gonna be home two hours ago. Way past my bedtime, have a reconnaisance run early in the morning. Maybe next time I go with the group to K1, I won't have an early morning ride the next day. It was a lot of fun, I honestly thought I was gonna get kicked out of the place for bumping, hitting cars and the wall, not letting people pass, etc. The employees there have some great patience!  :29:

Thank you everyone for the laughs and fun times tonight! I'm glad Amanda could make it and experience the K1 with OCMoto before hitting the highway on a month-long trek across the USA. And big thank you to Eddie for letting me take his car out for a spin!  :32:

It's been over two weeks since my last run to Malibu, so it had to be done today. Scott and his friend were running late - I didn't get to see them at all. Why do jackasses insist on driving 60 in the carpool lane as every other lane zips past them around 75?  :26:

There was an overabundance of Harley Davidsons out today, though more of them were friendlier than usual. Maybe they're getting tired of holding that hard-ass image?

I wanted to take Twisted Fingers through the Snake and probably goofed the route. I did take him through Las Flores, Mulholland R, Los Virgenes, Mulholland H, and Latigo Canyon. Is the Snake before S Kanan Dume?  :26: It's Twisted's first time through there, it'd be neat to see what his Rockstore photo(s) look like.

Forgot to mention on the way home from lunch, Doug and me were on the 5 fwy heading north in the carpool lane. There were 2 cars in front of me next thing I see this whole thread from a car tire shoot out from the right side of the cars. I just missed it!

After we passed it there was a car in the left shoulder stopped, I think the tire came from that car.

A sport tire should really last more than 7,400 miles

They should?? I'm lucky if I get 3500 miles out of a set..
I agree! My Dunlop Sportmax/Roadsmarts (a "sport/touring" tire) have 4K on them and maybe another 1K (more if I can find more corners - wearing in the center where compound is harder). I must say though, I'm pleased I got that many miles from them! I'm used to getting about 2K from a sport tire. Longest ever before the Roadsmarts was 3K, and that was only a 250 Ninja on OE tires! Replaced them at 3K, but should have at 2K.

Usually there's a cable box with a splitter hidden somewhere (closet, crawlspace, attic, etc). Just need to plug in the line that goes to the right jack.

That's correct.  The house/apartment is usually wired up so that all the cable lines in the house meet at 1 central point (a junction).  If you can find this junction, you need to find which cable carries the signal in from the street and then find which cable goes to the room of your choice.  Once you match those cables up, you're all set.  Process of trial and error usually works good in this situation.

Truth be told I think I'm at where I am only because I attend so many fundraisers, poker runs, charity events, bike nights, etc. and donate so much money for various causes. I've been to fundraisers and poker runs where no other member from here has gone to. I will however stop donating to people whose pets need medical attention - I'm in agreeance that pets are a luxury and one needs to be able to support and care for a pet since it's their choice to own one. But that's not to say that I won't help my closest friends, they've accepted me for who I am and never wish me ill. That's why I don't like online back-and-forth, it's pointless and you don't get to know people.

I just recently adopted him (he was a stray) and he has a level 3 heart murmur and a bum leg. He's been pretty quiet since the adoption, but yesterday he just let loose. We have to go back to vet soon though, for check ups. I'll hit you up Tom when the time comes.  :32:

Post by: Focus on 01/14/10 12:37PM
Do you remember that old commercial that said:

"How do I get a job without experience? How do I get experience without a job?"

I think that many new riders are caught in the same kind of catch 22 when it comes to the advice they get from various peers. The safety statements people make sometimes indirectly discourage people from riding.

City streets are not a good environment for beginners to learn on. Canyons are discouraged by the safety conscious, and going to the track is a big step for a beginner in money and mentality.

People are discouraged from riding alone for safety purposes. Yet, people are discouraged from trying to keep up...

Riding alone is the better option in my opinion for the beginner once you get your feet wet...When people are not around to distract you there is only one thing to think about, riding.

So, many beginners stay beginners forever or quit riding because they never feel the true thrill of carving (turning). Only the "crazy people" ride canyons afterall... ::)

I did the majority of my learning so far riding solo on canyon roads thinking about my riding. I think that beginners need to get out of town and put down some serious miles. You don't put down serious miles by riding around town. Riding around town is also more unsafe than a canyon road in my opinion, there are less people around to hit you! Long straights of freeway teach nothing.

So Tom, I decided to use your thread for its intended purpose. Many of the things I said could be considered unsafe and controversial. We all determine what is a reasonable amount of risk in our lives, personally, and what is socially acceptable. Riding motorcycles is considered by many in our society to be very risky, yet we decided that the rewards are worth the risk. To avoid all risks means not getting out of bed in the morning.

I guess I am just a very unsafe person in some peoples eyes. Yet, If I want to go visit my friend in Elsinore, Ortega Highway is the shortest route. Should I drive even though I dont want to and spend more money on gas? Should I not go because I don't have a friend to ride with? Suppose it was work on the other side of the hill: Should I just not go because my car broke?

Things just seem too double edged for me sometimes. On one side of the coin is total safety and almost no riding (except at the track) and the other side is "Suicidal" and "Dangerous."

I am not saying these things to piss people off, It is just that I have heard so many negative things about riding almost anywhere under any circumstance by other "experienced" riders.

Are people afraid? So they are tyring to make themselves look good with a safety excuse?
Do they truly believe what they are saying and think it is reasonable? How did they start riding?

Different people say different things for different reasons. It just really bothers me sometimes when people say things that try to discourage me and others from riding.

I know we wish the best for each other which is why we want each other to "Ride Safe". I have seen new riders come and go even in the short time I have been on here. I have heard of many reasons why people are not riding today etc. and to be honest some of the excuses are the funniest garbage I have ever heard.

Some people have "images" to uphold and will go to rediculous lengths to protect them.

Thanks for the space Tom!!

Do you remember that old commercial that said:

"How do I get a job without experience? How do I get experience without a job?"

I think that many new riders are caught in the same kind of catch 22 when it comes to the advice they get from various peers. The safety statements people make sometimes indirectly discourage people from riding.

City streets are not a good environment for beginners to learn on. Canyons are discouraged by the safety conscious, and going to the track is a big step for a beginner in money and mentality.

People are discouraged from riding alone for safety purposes. Yet, people are discouraged from trying to keep up...

Riding alone is the better option in my opinion for the beginner once you get your feet wet...When people are not around to distract you there is only one thing to think about, riding.

So, many beginners stay beginners forever or quit riding because they never feel the true thrill of carving (turning). Only the "crazy people" ride canyons afterall... ::)

I did the majority of my learning so far riding solo on canyon roads thinking about my riding. I think that beginners need to get out of town and put down some serious miles. You don't put down serious miles by riding around town. Riding around town is also more unsafe than a canyon road in my opinion, there are less people around to hit you! Long straights of freeway teach nothing.

So Tom, I decided to use your thread for its intended purpose. Many of the things I said could be considered unsafe and controversial. We all determine what is a reasonable amount of risk in our lives, personally, and what is socially acceptable. Riding motorcycles is considered by many in our society to be very risky, yet we decided that the risk is worth the reward. To avoid all risks means not getting out of bed in the morning.

I guess I am just a very unsafe person in some peoples eyes. Yet, If I want to go visit my friend in Elsinore, Ortega Highway is the shortest route. Should I drive even though I dont want to and spend more money on gas? Should I not go because I don't have a friend to ride with? Suppose it was work on the other side of the hill: Should I just not go because my car broke?

Things just seem too double edged for me sometimes. On one side of the coin is total safety and almost no riding (except at the track) and the other side is "Suicidal" and "Dangerous."

I am not saying these things to piss people off, It is just that I have heard so many negative things about riding almost anywhere under any circumstance by other "experienced" riders.

Are people afraid? So they are tyring to make themselves look good with a safety excuse?
Do they truly believe what they are saying and think it is reasonable? How did they start riding?

Different people say different things for different reasons. It just really bothers me sometimes when people say things that try to discourage me and others from riding.

I know we wish the best for each other which is why we want each other to "Ride Safe". I have seen new riders come and go even in the short time I have been on here. I have heard of many reasons why people are not riding today etc. and to be honest some of the excuses are the funniest garbage I have ever heard.

Some people have "images" to uphold and will go to rediculous lengths to protect them.

Thanks for the space Tom!!

You make many excellent points here, Focus.  How is a rider supposed to get good without practice and experience?

On the "stay in bed" remark, however...   They're really not all that safe. 

Ride well,

Tim, you've hit on so many facets this riding community faces. I dislike group rides where some feel that they belong in the "A" group because they're not only faster, but because they feel superior. Of course I'd encourage a large group to split into smaller groups, it's safety and thoughtful for fellow motorists. Needless to say, I like my small-group rides. I try to encourage newer riders to hit longer rides and to go places like Malibu because it adds to their experience. The riders I am refering to have taken Skillz Days, so it'd be a series of teft-turns, right-turns on the twisties. It's evident they have the motorcycle handling skills, so taking a motorcycle to freeway speeds and through a few miles of twisties is natural in the next step IMO.

Patient is here - to be continued.

So yeah, as I was saying about my fav Malibu - it's not about speed. I'm always happy to follow behind the residents, but they're so nice they always pull over to let me pass. There are so many places to pull over enjoy the views.

Palomar, now that's a different ball of wax.

Well Tim, I've ridden and spoke with you numerous times and I would ride with you at time, anywhere!
For a young rider you have the characteristics of a rider with way more years under your belt. I think Sponger, Diamond Dave, Eddiemon would agree with me. You also ask a lot of questions about riding technique which is always good. When I got back on the bike after 15yrs of not riding, I took Skillz Days and asked Snapshot A LOT of questions. It's important. It's a lot different on the roads now compared to the late 80's and I wanted to be ahead of the pack in that aspect. And you can never stop learning in this sport! As like a doctor, I consider this sport a 'PRACTICE'.

I got yelled at by a motor cop today on the 15 fwy. I was going 83 mph while he was going 85, he kept slowing down until finally he was at 75. Since this was very awkward for me, as I was following him, I maintained my speed and went past him. He promptly pulled up behind me and got on his loud speaker, saying something to the effect of 'slow down.' Since I had my ear plugs in, I could barely hear him. Only when he pulled up next to me and swiftly waved his hand down did I nod in acknowledgement.

He took off, returning to 85 mph. Mind you traffic was going at the same speed we were and I followed him for a long time, slowing down as he slowed down until finally cars were going by us. So I'm wondering:

He must have been hell bent on yelling at me no matter what I did, because he felt like yelling as soon as he saw a sport bike next to him.

At least he didn't pull me over. That always sucks.

He did go 65 mph on the 91 and I followed him all the way to the Fastrak lanes, where he prompty returned to 85 mph.

Cops must want us to get rear ended. Same thing happened in Cajon Pass a while back. A sheriff pulled up next to me and motioned to me to slow down, even though I was being passed by other cars. If I went any slower, I would have been a Peterbilt hood ornament.

You'd think they'd want us to go the speed of traffic, because it's less remains they have to peel off the freeway when some car cuts off because they didn't see us and they didn't care. If we stay ahead of them, they don't have to worry about us.

I do respect his attempt to be an authority figure and he did go 65 mph for a little while. I always stayed behind him, as ordered, like a good little girl.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, to all your over bearing officers. I respect your plight, however:

LEAD BY EXAMPLE!!!

Going 65 mph just long enough to warrant a tantrum is hardly effective. It's sort of a 24/7 deal, unless your lights are on and you're chasing somebody. Then we get it.

Cops don't have to lead by example. A badge and a gun gives them all-mighty power. They can pull you for no reason, can simply state that your vehicle fits the description seen at a crime scene. Anti-gun proponents want you to believe that you and I have no need or right to own firearms, that cops will be there to protect us. It is comical that people bitch and moan about HB cops being total Nazis. In my 23-years here, HB has never pulled me. Can't say the same for GG or CM - those tools pulled me for no reason, hoping to get lucky with no license, no insurance, expired tag, DUI, or whatever. When they find out I've done some time in Corcoran, they get edgy. That's right bitches, you're dealing with a hardened convict. You fuckers look at me funny, I'll shank you without hesitation. I also find it funny that after the cops can't cite or arrest me for anything, they ask if I'm still in the service. What's it to you if I am, Pig? You pull me for no reason and then try to be my friend?

Got to say that service tonight was sub-par. If I get crappy service again next month, the manager won't hear the end of it from me. I'll take it all the way up to the owners.

:26:  I'd think that it would be possible. We've got seedless grapes and watermelon, so be patient. I've found that tieing knots in cherry stems with your tongue is overrated.

By the way, I too would ride with Tim anytime. We're already planning a Sequoia trip, I can't wait!

The trick is, you have to weaken the handle. Shank and twist. If you want to get fancy, incorporate into the shank (most commonly made from toothbrush) blood grooves. Leave a piece of it inside for added pain.  :29:

Anyone want to learn what a Buckwheat is? It ain't the adorable Lil Rascals character.

Firearms can be loud, drawing unwanted attention. With a .22lr, it can be quiet yet deadly. Preferred caliber for Buckwheats.

While locked up I also learned that ants like to eat soap.  :26:  What's up with that?

I yelled at some clown and banging on the glass wall at the gym this morning as he was attempting to sit on my bike.  I was at the end of my work out stretching and facing the glass wall looking at my beautiful bike as the sun came up and its rays lit up my bike and I see this guy walking across the side walk and towards me bike.  So I sit there and think well if he looks its ok.  So he looks at the fairings and then at the pipe, the tail and walks to the clutch side and leans in to look at the instrument panel.  I kind of get a little antsy cause he looks kind of shady and for him to lean that close to my bike makes me nervous.  I'm sure that he knows that people can see him from inside the gym but I am also sure that he doesn't notice me sitting there on the other side of the glass wall, and if he does, he probably doesn't think this asian female would be the owner of the bike.  Even though my helmet is with me.  Anyways I see him straighten up from looking at the instrument panel and he puts one hand on the left grip and prepares to swing his leg over th bike. 

I immediately jump up and bang my fist on the glass.  Startling him to stop with his right foot off the ground.  He stares at my blankly and I give him the stink eye and point to the bike and point to me.  He gives me a sheepish grin and shrugs and walks away.  Oh I was ready to take the 10 pound weight near by and chuck it at his head.  I hung out for a bit to make sure he wouldn't come back, but eventually I had to go shower so I hoped that my bike would be ok. Man do people not respect private property of others anymore.

The way I see it, they could very well be trying to steal your bike.

dang lyn, at least you were there to stop this fool from whatever he was doing.  what possesses people to sit on a bike that's not theirs without permission is beyond me.  must have been raised by parents that never taught them to ask.

Valentine's isn't a holiday. It's a nice long weekend (President's Day) to go out and blow shite up. ATF, alcohol, tobacco, firearms. The best mixture ever! Be sure to fly the colors.
Why do people whom are born on the 14th feel that they deserve special love? They deserve special spankings!  :13:

I have no recollection of what may have happened. And Shelly, your lips say 'NO' but your heart says 'YES'. It's kinda like how I said I'd never track the Aprilia, but did it anyway. Resistance is futile.

Agustin, Gina and I went to Malibu today. Gina had to turn back due to some other business she had to take care of  :(

I pulled into the Rockstore twice today. Had to turn around to go find Agustin and Gina. Agustin and I see Gina off, and we return to Rockstore. This cool Yamaha V-Max rolls in: (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/16Jan2010/th_V-Max.jpg) (http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b81/sgttom/16Jan2010/V-Max.jpg)

Biker babe Jody and her friends were there. They invite us to tag along and hit more twisties.

I was having great difficulty posting earlier. The RSV pilot has been riding for many years, he was very patient with me and Agustin today. Gave us great tips and pointers, coached us on the twisties. Kinda like a combination of Snapshot and a track instructor.
Eddie and I met Steve (blue Kawi) at the donut store a couple of weeks ago. Nice to see him and the other riders
