Yes, but what if our friend meant exactly what he typed (as he invariably does)? Opens up an entirely new vista to contemplate. :wink:

Or, you COULD just fly into L.A. and -- dare I say it? -- rent a Harley. Because as everyone has now conceded, you meet the nicest people on a Harley! :D

Great ride report! Thanks for posting.

It's just a style thing, nothing to do with "protection", which is a common obsession of non-Harley riders at which they throw vast amounts of money.

Great report so far. Quite a diverse group of riders -- Harleys, Hondas, BMWs, a Victory -- what have I forgotten? No Can-Am? Shocking! Trying to keep this kind of group together is invariably...
