A "1%" day in SoCal

Off to the Honda dealer for parts...Nice day in SoCal

I need wheel bearings for a '75 CB750 project bike, so let me run over to Huntington Beach Honda. Weather wise, southern CA is really nice right now. Clear, cool with views that seem to go on forever. These are "1% days" in SoCal. We don't get more than a few of these days a year.

The little trip to the dealer turned out to be 50 mi and a couple hours. Just a few shots with my crappy cell phone, but I thought I would share anyway..

Went a little north first to Signal Hill for the 360 degree views.

Looking SW across the top of downtown Long Beach out over the Pacific to Catalina Island. Just to the right of the white dome is the Queen Mary

This is facing east toward Santiago Peak, best know as Saddleback Mtn. This small mountain range divides Orange and Riverside counties. The top of the peak is 5500' and is accessible by bike, when the forest service actually leaves the gates open to get up there.

In the distance is downtown L.A. framed by the San Gabriel Mtns

I made it to the dealer, I like these

Huntington Habour

Quite a backyard, eh?

Good food, with the occasional auto that comes through the front door, hence the construction. Just gotta watch where you sit!

Schooner or Later from Long Beach is opening soon in Sunset Beach, usually good eats

Last shot is a residence in Sunset. The original water tower that sat dates back to the late 1800's. This place sold for nearly $5mil a few years back. But you can rent it for $4k week for your next vacation

Thanks for looking.
