Off Topic / School me on cheapest OC apartment hunting
« on: 05/15/18 10:14AM »
1.) are all 1br apartments $1,600ish and up with $100ish/year increases?
2.) I want to be close to bake parkway and either the 405 or 5 freeways for work - No farther south than lake forest...any other target areas besides Santa Ana (also ridiculous priced) or south coast metro?
3.) where else to look besides Craigslist/trulia/Hotpads?
4.) are prices to rent a room near spectrum REALLY around $1,000-$1.200/month !?! Seems like a lot to share
5.) what are my living options if this is what my needs are: private room for bed, dresser, bathroom, sink, small fridge, basic hand tools, surf board, motorcycle cases. All cooking can bbe done on a single burner or hot plate (Mostly oatmeal/eggs). The rest I crock pot, microwave, coffee pot, or use a rice cooker. I really like having a consistent truck parking spot at home when I work late. For moto I would like a spot/shed/off street spot for my dirt bike and hopefully a place to work on it. If that is off the table I can always leave it at my rental property...but itís way nicer if it is closer. Being close to spectrum means OC dirt riding is 25-30 mins away.
6.) goal: my rentals will cash flow positive a few hundred a month by this summer. I am hoping to use them to entirely cover my living/apartment costs as long as I can find a place in OC thatís under a grand per month. I also found private owners were less likely to increase rents if they like you.

I am also in my mid 30ís...ideally I donít want to get roommates anymore. So occasionally I will see ads to rent an in-law apartment or Separate entrance bedroom/bath with kitchenette...although those rarely have parking. I found living alone has a premium

Did I cover everything?

Flagged for removal?

I dunno who or what you are talking about...yay for one OC toll roads free for motorcycles that is all

So far it reads that you need a transponder

Lol...sure...try it on the 133/241/73...they will send you a clarification bill

Haaa..itís not aimed at fixing everything in CA itís a money grab move

Take millions of tax payer money into their pockets, advertise it as a benefit to the people, continue to make money for years and years to come

The key is scooting around as the minority -motorcyclists arenít going to make them rich so free helps us and no worry to them


Will motorcycles be allowed to drive for free in the 405 Express Lanes?

All vehicles, including motorcycles, must have a transponder in order to use the 405 Express Lanes. Per the toll policy, motorcycles are allowed free travel at all times and are eligible for the Special Access account.

not that I'll be doing the Long Beach -> OC commute by 2022/2023, but I will keep my toll road transponder (paid a one time fee when the '91 expansion happened) at the times I head to LA area

the issue with the V-strom in a transit connect is height - darn thing just won't fit unless you take off a bunch of accessories and compress the forks

makes it harder to steal, but best suited on a trailer, then an open truck bed

we will see...I may just keep my 2001 Ford F-150 and watch it run another 100,000 miles

Kendons are the trailer of choice for sure...but $$...and still not street parkable

@1fast I have seen those but spinning the transmission without the engine running may do damage to the tranny due to oil those are only good if you take off the chain m

To be honest I could have been dreaming...maybe there is no rear facing moto tow device

Convenience... whenever I need to move the Vstrom with the cage it's always 6am or 11pm...then I go maybe 20-30 miles, and either leave the bike or the truck and take the other home. Seems they are always closed when I need them...and I typically move bikes on work I would have to rent a trailer 2-3 days and store it (I street park in LB) until I can get over to return it on my day off.

Right now I use the F150, but once that poops out, I am considering a Transit Connect wagon or Dodge Caravan amd hitch hauler for Moto duty instead of another half ton...better power/acceleration than a truck with 20-25% better gas mileage, the ability to seat 6-7 comfortably, a stow and go is super versatile, and better security for surf boards/crap when surfing after work or doing a "Cali" trip and carrying 4-5 adults plus crap to the beach, Vegas, music festival, camping, or LA to go out

does this exist?

if so - where is it?!

I swear I saw an ad on facebook for it: hooks up to your hitch, you roll your bike in backwards into a wheel chock, tie the handle bars to keep the forks straight, use the supplied/integrated hydraulic jack to get the rear wheel off the ground, then drive off.

no need to cut the chain

Negative...working 3 weekends in a row ughh

kinda works...gotta make sure the cable has tension and spools up straight...

<a href="" target="_blank" class="new_win"></a>

and I need a better place to tie the front of the bike

on a light dirt bike, it's easier just to run and push it in HAHA

<a href="" target="_blank" class="new_win"></a>

Haha thanks man I actually don't need a stand, tools, or anything I just need to commit a couple hours towards doing it... Right now I am in the middle of installing a winch in the bed of my truck to make it easier to pull bikes in. Maybe I'll work on the dirt bike tomorrow or Wednesday...

I can't help myself...I know I should swap that shock...but I just...wanna...ride...

we took a different road that I haven't visited in a couple years....waaaaay smoother than what I usually ride...

just a fire road rolling over the tops of mountains :hellyeah:

it's amazing how much the geography changes on either side of the mountain line...this side was more "meadows" while the other side was more forest/rocks

random 690 dude was flying...until he got a pinch flat...bummer

I followed her on IG since I first came to CA...she really loved to ride and did a lot to promote it for women. May she ride in Paradise, and thoughts and prayers to her friends and family.

Ride 8:30-12:30

Surf 2:30-5
