I’ve been AWOL for a long time now, dealing with a new wife, animals, cars, etc. Let see if I can keep this going and take it somewhere interesting.

Most of the time, when I’m not tooling around on the T100 I’m having a good time in the Miata. Unfortunately, the water pump on the car broke this week and the parts weren’t going to arrive until next week. This left me in a bit of a pickle as I had a hockey game on saturday night. So, instead of doing the smart thing and borrowing a friends car I decided to see if I could get everything onto the bike.
A few bungie cords later and it turns out that you can indeed strap an ice hockey bag and a pair of sticks to a motorcycle.
Destination: San Francisco
So far, Irvine to Agoura Hills.
There is something peculiar about Los Angeles, as I pass LAX and enter the city proper I bid farewell to the gusty and rambunctious coastal winds that I have been battling through since Irvine. Entering the shadow of the city and the coastal ranges I encounter a peculiar stillness as if the winds have decided to ignore the City of Angels. It is always a good thing to be free of the city though, and as I merge onto the 101 I lean forward and goose the throttle, not long now until I reach Agoura and can rest until the morning. Today will be the short one, tomorrow I have the long but beautiful CA101 to look forward to as I slowly stretch towards the city on the bay.
