Why California? This is why... :)
 
When folks ask why it costs so much to live in California, well a picture is worth a thousand words... dedicated to my riding friends who are frozen in their tracks for the time being until you can get back out there... :)

New Year's weekend - Dillon Beach, CA

Sunday, January 27, 2013 - dead of "winter" - Calaveras Rd.

Was a beautiful day out... about 55 degrees, road to myself, and the air smelled so fresh and clean...

Someday, a Can Am in my future. Can't think of a better destination than your coast.

PapaYolk 01-30-2013 07:35 AM

Good stuff. Left in "83... but I do miss the coastline.

Foot dragger 01-30-2013 07:42 AM

Yup,been in nor cal 55 years so far,still riding singletrack in January,mountains are right next to town,ocean is 3 hours of perfect twisty roads away. Friends who have moved here from the frozen wasteland areas talk about how beautiful their homelands are...............but they seem to never go back to visit once planted here.

CA may be confused fiscally but its a really nice place to live,at least up north. I dont do So Cal much.

The Spyder is a nice option to have when 2-wheels is no longer a viable possibility anymore. Very different riding style but once you get used to it, it's a helluva lot of fun! :norton

Yup... I've lived in the Bay Area my entire life... I wouldn't mind getting out further from the craziness of the Sillycon Valley but I think it'd still be in CA... so many choices! :evil
