I haven't spent much time there but I think Hookalatch is probably right on. Bakersfield has a bad rep in more "sophisticated" parts of California, but Kern County is probably the most topographically diverse county in the State with resulting huge opportunities for outdoor activities and motorcycling. I live a couple of hundred miles away in a beautiful location near the ocean, and I like riding TO Kern County to enjoy the scenery and roads. And, unlike LA and the SF Bay Area, and even Sacramento, Bakersfield is not so huge that it takes 4 hours to get 100 miles out of town on a Friday evening.
