Thank you for taking us along mang.

The Road

We leave behind the ones we love for it. Spend our last dime for one more mile on it. We sacrifice the skin on our knuckles to keep our wheels rolling on it. Go through the worst weather to ride it. We look for it to solve our problems, to ease our pain, and forget our troubles. We make best friends on it. Lose best friends on it. We destroy our bodies when we fall on it Patch ourselves up to stay on it. We want our friends to join us But we’ll gladly ride it alone. We long for its embrace like a lover. Return to it time and time again Like an old, solid, best friend It will always be there for us.

This is just the spot where I'm going to catalog my little ride down the coast from Oregon to Los Angeles. Nothing you haven't seen before or ridden yourself.

I'm gonna stop and see some inmates..check out a few things and do a bunch of meetings in LA in hopes of convincing some folks to give me there hard earned money.

Just started divorce proceedings from my wife of 20 years and figured I could use some Helmet time.

I haven't been able to do much riding in the last year ..a neck injury took me out for about 9 months after being away from the bike for four years .while my son was growing out of diapers

anyway i figured I'll do a RR since it's been so long. I'll be leaving in the morning..we'll see how far I get.

I'll post some pics tomorrow night if I have a connection..but you have been warned..I'm pretty sure this will suck

L8R
Let's ride, brother.

Santa Cruz awaits.

Thanks all! Thanks for the offers and suggestions as well. I don't think I took a single pic today but I got a bunch to catch up on..crazy busy day riding all over LA..had to go into the Valley fuckin 110 in the stich(185). Man has Hollywood changed in 10 years..most my favorite places closed..but my peeps are still here...I gotta go figure out where I am heading tomorrow.

and so far two for two on successful meetings..nothing to pay the rent but..the doors are open a little wider today

Ain't that always the way! For years I commuted by ferry to Manhattan passing the Statue of Liberty twice a day and never once did I go and visit it. It seems that sometime you don't really appreciate what's next door until you leave for a while.

Safe travels!

It IS indeed, but it's not mine. It sums it up for a lot of us.

I found it on Mitch Cotie(s) blog awhile ago and I assume it's his but I'm not sure and I haven't been able to find it since.

Check his work here

http://www.mcotie.com/

His stuff is all gnar!

ps

Have you found any winos yet?

You wouldn't think you'd find a better selection anywhere.

Homerun! Or izzat Home Run!

Too bad yer not coming back this way, but you'll be having a adventure at a bolcano - just like AdventureKitty says.

I can ride east and catch you on I5 if you want a screamin' escort up the West Coast alimentary canal.



See ya at WetFest.
