    I will be southbound on I-5 on a ride that I cannot bypass I-5 at all. The starting time that I am considering has me hitting LA at 8 pm on a Thursday. I am not real experienced at lane splitting. Can someone give me some advice on traffic congestion times and  duration of delays… Thanks, Tony

Its been nearly 600,000 miles since then, but that ride stands out as one...

    Face shield / Windscreen Cleaning

    To some it may seem trivial, but I thought I’d post up this option for anyone looking for a cheap solution. Bike shops will sell little 2 oz. bottles of cleaner. Over time the cost adds up. My solution was to save the containers and refill them. I searched for a product until I found one that I...

    I have always enjoyed the Shark Evoline (1-3) and owned 4 of them. I am currently shopping helmets and I am torn between the Shark Evo One 2 and the LS2 Valiant 2. Does anyone have experience with the LS 2 or better yet, experience with both models?

    Ride planning/ Help needed

    I am considering another attempt at the “Deca” (10 consecutive BBGs) Last summer I failed when I attempted the ride at the beginning of my longest month ride. The weather was extremely terrible for the first 5 BBGs. When it cleared up on day 6, I felt smug thinking the ride was in the bag. Day...

    To Christmas On Christmas

       I sat around the house feeling lonely until mid morning when I hopped on the bike and headed out.  I decided not to do any of the IBA Christmas rides. Just to make sure that I wouldn't change my mind, I left the RDL in the garage.  I headed north on I-95 until I came to State Road 50. I then...

    Bakersfield to Fortuna

    I am routing from Texas to stage for the "Cape to Cape" ride. The router keeps wanting me to go 99 from Bakersfield to Sacramento before hitting I-5. Then it routes me to SF to hook up on 101 to Fortuna. It seems for a few extra miles, I should take I-5 all the way to Red Bluff, then head west...
