Hmmmm. Surely I'm mistaken but at around 4:40 it appears you went straight through an intersection from a right turn only lane while ignoring the stop sign. Must be my new glasses betraying my visual cortex.

the weather in Cali depends on where you are in that state...our usual cold and rainy weather up here has been replaced by warm temperatures and fog..lots and lots of fog...in 4 weeks it will be spring here...the group I've been riding with has yet to miss a weekend..with most of the rides being around 100 miles...

Ah, the sweet melodies of anarchy. Here in the People's Republic of Texas that would get you shot.

A recent newspaper cartoon explained that, on a Texas map, each gun owner was indicated by a small red dot. The entire map was red.

Being a Texan and living there the biggest part of my life. I haven't found any bullet holes on me yet.:stick poke: The most dangerous thing in Texas is the Douche Bags driving the F350's

You can always repurpose your gear. Don't get me wrong it would be nice to ride a bike all year, but I would miss the change of seasons too much to commit to summer all year.
That being said.. Joe you got a place I can rent down in Cali? My arms and back are killing me from the nonstop shoveling.

That photo was taken near Bradenton. We rented that bike in Ft Myers and took 41 North up thru Sarasota. THAT was a mistake.

It was around Christmas. The traffic was absolutely crazy.
