Why am I in LA? I’d rather not get into it, it has too much to do with the real world and not enough to do about motorcycles.
I wanted to ride down here like I have in the past, but you have one little near death crash doing that and everyone freaks out when you suggest doing it again. It’s not like I’d be riding the murderous BMW!
However in my time down here I’ve noticed something. I know there are a lot of motorcyclists down here, however I think that per capita it’s a fairly low number. I have no real proof of this, but if my hours spent driving around this cursed area to bike sightings are anything to go by they are few and far between. Which is crazy because traffic down here is less than awesome, in fact it sucks most of the time. Thinking about it, why don’t more people give up their cars and ride? The weather down here is of course mild enough, and the ability to lane share and filter would make the early adopters commutes a bit faster. Then as more and more people started riding everyone’s commute would get faster.
Who knows… maybe they like traffic down here?
