Re: Do Kalifornia Kops Target Trikes and Sidecars?

I've always had a respectful exchange with LEOs in California (Once each on two bikes, in the last decade, both for speed. One ticket, one warning).

However, I'll always remove my helmet, so the...

Re: Hotels for Bikers ???

Umm.... 4 miles WEST of the junction, on 120.

And, no wonder I couldn't find it, driving back and forth on that road (not far enough it turns out) over and over. Dang!

Re: Feather River

Nice video! For as long as I've lived in Grass Valley, I've never been on Hwy 70 along the Feather River. Now, I must do that.

Approximately, where are those tunnels? Thanks.

Re: Bike shops in Sacramento

A&S BMW/Ducati (1125 Orlando Ave, Roseville) has some. Shoei, Aria, Nolan (I think). Call first to see what modulars.

Not sure what Roseville Yamaha has these days.

Re: Preston Castle

Looks just like one of a jillion abandoned mental hospitals everywhere, but mostly in the Northeast. --As explored on infiltration.org and opacity.us.
