Sunny Day in LA!

All the bikes were out today, and motorcycle cops were just cruising and waving to other bikes.

Just showing off my new HD handlebar endweights - the finishing touch to my control package (all I have left is to install my Givi Air Flow scoop on top of my windshield after I clean both good.)

I saw thousands of bikes this morning in LA (first weekend after it hits over 80F!) I drove by Motor Helmets and there was 35 bikes waiting for them to open: they are the Tire Kingdom of motorcycles around here. There is nothing going on there except tires on Saturdays: especially now, 6 to 8 techs busting tires as fast as they can.


I'm glad to see them all out today and hope they all drive safe. That reminds me I need to take the AMA Basic MC driver training to lower my insurance. At interstate junctions on the expressway, it looked close to 1,000 bikes at CA-91 and I-605 in ONE VIEW and they were streaming in-line in all directions.

I bet they are out in force at Atlanta, GA as well! Get on your motorcycles and ride.

Yes, when I cut through them, I tried to stay 2 lanes away from them. Quite a few looked a little unstable, and I did not want to be in a motorcycle pile-up on the news.

Them wings are big bikes. Pretty hard for many to keep them up if they start going over.
You had quite the diverse MC there. Except for those ridiculous handlebars, I kinda liked the Harley.

The Harley belongs to my buddy Paul. He traded that bike in on a new 2015 Road King last year.

Joe,

Multiply your 3rd video to 1,000 riders and that was what it was like today around noon. I ducked my head and safely lane split 10 miles on CA91 and then got all the way over when I saw an opening to get in line for I-605 just waiting basically. All of a sudden hundreds of bikes came out of everywhere in all lanes. I felt pretty comfortable 4 lanes away from them in the far right lane. When I got off the express way, some looked like they got lost from the pack and were riding around in circles with their neck stretched up and looking all around them. I was hoping you would go film the action, lol. $100/month on youtube guaranteed.

There's no place like home!
