Glad your employment situation is handled!

I have a love/hate relationship with the interchanges from 55N to 5S, and 5N to 55S - those are great when there is not traffic, but there's always traffic.

I ended up taking my son to camp via 55 and 5, and there were more riders along that route than I remember seeing in the past.  (this was around 8:30am)

I have the day off, but hopefully I'll be able to ride a bit.

Off Topic / Any tech's to mentor a middle-schooler?
« on: 05/10/18 01:57PM »
Anyone have any leads on a tech / shop owner who might be willing to act as a mentor to an 8th-grader?  My kids' school has 8th graders work on "practical" projects, capping off towards the end of the school year with a presentation to the school community.  My daughter, who will be in 8th next year, has listed motorcycle maintenance & repair as one of her 3 requests (to be approved by faculty).  I will help her, but this isn't my profession and therefore I'm not sure that I can serve the mentor role.  If anyone has a lead (or leads), I'd appreciate a PM with their contact info.

Hmm.  I was considering some of the stuff he was advertising. Hopefully nothing bad happened to the OP.

Toll roads in LA County don't charge. Although every morning on 110 N, I see one or two people pulled over off the Express lanes.

I also agree with above, the worst traffic happens north of the 405 / 605: narrower lanes, dumb drivers unable to just maintain steady speed & consistent following distances, etc.

Would you consider it a light smoke at full tint?  It looks like the visor doesn't get as dark as the Shoei dark smoke visor.

I saw the OC Moto tweet yesterday and hoped it was fake news.  RIP Annette.

Glad you guys had a good time, and good to hear the road is pretty clean.

Edit: wanted to make sure to say RIP and sorry to hear about the accident

I had the best price through Geico (existing auto customer), but I was also 35 at the time.  I'm currently at a little over $200/year for my 2 bikes; older one is liability only, newer one is full

Great start to 2018, seeing the site back up.

...and heated gear is awesome for rides <55 deg F @ highway speeds

Sucks.  Thankfully none of my family is there, but a couple of people I work with have been affected.

Looks like a fun route, hope whoever goes has fun. I'll be in a cage dealing with traffic to & from a Dodger game

I guess that's one name out of contention for the title this season. Doesn't sound life-threatening though, which is good.

Bump, still have the liner, open to offers.

Considering making a move like this for me, though the wife would keep her car.  I'd be all-in on the idea if she also rode a bike, which would allow us to switch vehicles based on need / logistics of shuttling kids around.
