LA and the mountains around it definitely seem like paradise for a motorcycle rider. Not only do you have the weather but you guys also have the roads and the scenery. I lived there briefly as a child with my mom who taught elementary in Compton. I don't remember much about it though and I've been told by friends that I need to go back now that I'm grown.
The things that turn me off about LA though are the cost of living and California emissions rules. Hell...I'm wondering if my bike would even be legal there! And I've heard they don't let you keep a pistol like they do here in Florida. :dunno
Maybe once I'm filthy rich I'll buy an extra house there so I can cruise those mountain highways. For now I'll just continue living vicariously through the car and biker boys I see on youtube. :biggrin:
I also work in film/TV. What do you do?Cost of living is pretty outrageous but it can be found with reasonable prices if you look.......Its the price you pay for the life and work you can get here. i work in the movie industry so there is only a few places I could live.
Emissions rule are prettys trict, but you only need to take the bike and have it checked once....Only when you buy a bike you take it to DMW, then after that mod away to your hearts content. I have never had any issues with the police after being pulled over....They know, but they got murderers to catch, no time for a full exhaust traffic ticket.
I dont have any guns but plenty of friends that do.
