Hey OC riders,

I've been thinking about it, and my favorite roads to ride are typically un-rideable in the winter time. I end up sticking local, Santiago canyon and Ortega, which are usually at the bottom of my list of roads to ride.

What roads do my fellow OC peeps utilize in the winter time, when ACH and other mountain roads are covered in cinders/rocks/ice?

DO NOT TRUST Oc Motorcycle Shop, especially Superchicken Drew.

He communicated poorly, outright lied, and returned my bike in pieces, and missing parts. I cant get ahold of drew anymore, so it looks like im going to have to eat all this. I only used drew because of his rep on this forum, i hope no one else falls victim to his work.

Heres my detailed experience.

August 1st 2016: bike starts to hesistate but only below 6k rpm. Fsm troubleshooting says to check valves

Aug 3rd: drop off bike at Oc motorcycle shop to have valves checked

Aug 4th: drew texts me, says valves and spark is good, recommends carb rebuild. $300 i say go for it drew says he will keep me posted

Aug 11th: havent heard anything, so i ask drew how its coming. Waiting on carbs to come back from cleaning is his reply

Aug 23rd: no news from drew, so i ask him. He says he received the carbs today, and they should be back in by tomorrow.

Aug 24th: no word from drew

Aug 25th: still no word, i ask how its going. No answer from drew

I called in looking for a part, guy says they have it i just have to pay and they can have it shipped to their place, he said it would be here today so i gave him my cc. I called at noon, they said it probably wouldnt be until tomorrow that it came in. I decide to go in just before close to see if it had come in, the guy at the counter says that part is discontinued.

I asked why i was told that they had it and it was on its way, and why i had paid for a part they dont have. He asked what year it was again, i reply 98, he says well yeah of course its discountinued. I told him i could have bought it online for less, and had it by now, but wanted to spend my money locally. He replies with, "We are doing fine without you buddy".

The thing is, its not some rare obscure part, and the same part number is used on pretty much all cbr600s and fireblades and some other hondas of that era. It wasnt a total waste of time though, i was able to complete my order with an online retailer for the same genuine honda part, for less money, while i waited for my refund

Edit: i dont often use yelp, but did today

Anybody know where that black cloud floating in from the north east originates? I was guessing the King Fire but that appears to have been contained over the last few days

Anybody see this last night?

A violent crash to end the chase, driver stumbles out, apparently on drugs, and gets shot. I didnt see a weapon, the vehicle was disabled and he was on foot. I dont see how he was a threat to anyone, after the crash.

At first it looked like a dui checkpoint, cones and sherrifs waving traffic through, pulling some to the side. But instead of a breathalizer, there were two trailers with vehicles strapped with their rear wheels turning drums. The line was too long, or i wouldve taken a run with my work truck.  i guess a lot of people wanna know what kind of power their chevy astros are puttin down at the wheels.

Located on 7th st, just north of park
