I'm thinking atleast Pismo. 154 behind santa Barbra has some camping spots. even if we make down to ventura we can camp on the beach. I know a spot off of seaward in ventura. I would do the drive in 4 hours flat to ventura. on the bike not sure. I gotta stop every 80-90 miles for gas. what are you thinking?

That sounds about right, I was thinking somewhere between Cambria and Pismo. Never been down 154, but I'd be down to camp on a beach / hit some bars in Ventura as well! We'd prob make that area in a comfortable six hours - camp it out, hit the show. Like bad mother fuckers.

You're right down the street from me, I live right across the 280 from the Balboa bart(literally). Ingleside district. We usually bar hop a little and ride up in the hills, Diamond Peak, Twin, kinda just roam where ever. Most of the time I lean out to the North or South near the coastal hills.

Knockout is cool, I'm always down to go to new spots though. Drop me a line some time, we'll come meet ya.

You going out alone, or with your lady?

Anyway, my gf was pretty much in charge with sightseeing. We found an apartment on airbnb in the mission. It could've been nicer but it was definitely cheaper. We also got a zip car for the day on Monday so that was pretty helpful.

Dolores Park (all parks, really) are a great place to lay down with a book and a beer. Brown bag and don't worry about cops. Think McCarren Park but no one really gives a shit abou being cool.

We walked all up and down Haight, Golden Gate Park, The piers, Muir Woods, Saulsalito, Chinatown.

Hey dudes, so I have a job interview in San Mateo next week, I'm hoping to escape this endless polar bullshit in Chicago. Any advice on areas to check out to live? Id like to have a garage for my shit and not pay a ton and hopefully live near other riders/ not around fancy rich boners. Thank you in advance!

A three bedroom with small garage goes for 5000-6000 per month in my area. Can you say "garage-envy?"

If you're looking for a pad with a garage I'd suggest the Sunset District in San Francisco. Still in city but some parts are little more "suburb"ish and have a lot of remodeled Victorian homes with nice garages. Just a suggestion. Also maybe check out Berkeley?

ALSO, anybody in here in the Santa Cruz/South bay area?! I'm in Morgan Hill but mostly ride in Santa Cruz because my riding buddy lives there and it's just nice scenery than the valley. A lot of Runs coming up, a red and white(u knowwww) bike blessing in San Jose on April 19th, A Top Hatters MC Bike Blessing in Hollister, and an Independence poker run in Hollister with the Top Hatters MC on July 5th as well as the Hollister rally in early July? Should be fun.

Seems like a lot of us in the bay are pretty close to eachother as far as distance goes. Just watched the death science revenge run vid on YouTube and I'm all inspired to make a mini run/Bay Area meetup. We should set up a meet in sf or somewhere & do a run or just a bike night somewhere. Could be pretty sick.

We were there Saturday-Wednesday. I only saw one chop(cb750) out near Dolores park and had a quick chat with the dude. I went over to California Choppers and the guy wouldn't let me take a picture of the 81 tank, nbd. Otherwise we had a great time. Between sightseeing and record shopping, I spent a little bit of time drinking at Zeitgeist and The Attic. SF food is awesome!

haha sounds about right at California Choppers, awesome shop. Not sure if it's 81 owned or not although they obviously support them.

57 straight leg pan Harley frame, 74 shovel and a boxes of parts. We've wrenched on our bikes before but never a full on build. Always been a dream to build one from ground up but with all the parts in your garage scattered around it seems impossible. It ain't gonna stop us from tryin!

Looking to find some people to ride with, anything from a weekend trip to let's see how far we can make it before breaking down. Been workin on bikes most of my life but now I want to ride them. I built a few jap chops and some american chops as well. I don't give a shit what you ride as long as you ride. Seems most people just want to be seen and look cool for there friends, I could give a shit if you think what I do is cool. I don't do it for you, I do it because I think it's cool! Let's stop bullshiting and get riding! Nothing better than a chopper loaded with gear rolling down the road!
