I am out :(

No one was around when I came home from work to help me load the bike up so I had to leave it down in SD.

I'm not brave enough to try and load it by myself

Yep...18.0 and 25 minutes...I'm slow...55 to 60mph. Silly eh? But this is LA...everything is 20 to 30 minutes away. When I was working at the old law firm it was 30 minutes to go 4 miles.

You got learn how to do it sooner or later, or if you can find a ditch or steep hill just back the truck up to it with the tall gate down and ride it on in, we'll help you unload it and that's the hard part.

And the bad thing about my office is that we have our own barrista (no need for Starbucks) and I had a cinnamon bun latte at 3pm today. Real smart...I can't get to sleep now.

hey Q,
i don't where abouts in hollywood you are, but 5 north, osbourne exit(get gas at CHEVRON HERE ), right onto osbourne, east on osbourne, right on foothill, left on osbourne, left into the 7-11. 25 minutes from los feliz blvd/I-5

here's a link from the 5 to the 7-11.

have fun!

You're kidding ..........right?

I get up at 6:45 to be there by 7:30. It takes me 30 minutes from the LBC where the 605 meets the 405.

Sounds like I missed a good one. Critters got all their shots...$160 instead of $210...got free rabies shots with the package.

Waiting for the ride report.
