I found out that everyone who told me that MSR and PRIMUS have interchangeable thread patterns are lying!! My XGK fuel pump leaked like a siv once I pumped it up. It screwed on to the Primus bottle fine but doesn’t work under pressure. So Alex made a sweet stove out of 3 beer cans.





The next morning we hit the road. Absolutely amazing riding up and down the hills of the coastline. We stopped at a beach and some surfers told us we had to go spend the night in Jalama beach. The road to get there was 14 miles of perfect biking and got a decent spot on the beach. Some Coors and a bottle of Jameson later and we slept well.






Got up and hammered the road through Santa Barbara, Malibu, and then dove into the LA interstates.
Somewhere along the way I tried to hop a curb...bike dosen't handle quite the same as it used to:



Tonight (Saturday) we stayed with a friend of mine in LA. My bike is slightly leaking coolant at the water pump and a little oil from the clutch cover. We’ll do a little bike maintenance tomorrow and then cruise to San Diego where we will stay with my Aunt. Then hit the border early Monday morning. YES!!
