Well here it is, I just got my first ticket costing $179 in Beverly Hills for not wearing a helmet on a bike.. Man I tell you, people on the road in CA particular, are nasty. Just came back from Mid Wilshire area (Saturday 11:30 AM) and almost got killed by an old fart pulling out of a parking space, making a left turn and looking in the other direction to the right) but first don't you want to make sure that the lane you are going to cross first is free of traffic? ... never really realized this but lately I am noticing more and more that automobile drivers are really mad at anyone on a bike, motorcycle etc. Could it be that it is because, you are the only one moving (!!!!!) and also it costs you less than a cup of coffee for fuel and you get a better gas mileage than any hybrid. Speaking of which why do they have to be so ugly? Well actually if you are a d bag (meet a lot of them in LA and women find them really sexy(!!!!) again that is an other puzzle) than you don't care and think that it is a great looking car. So anyway built 2 motorized bikes with the available chinese motors... I really love riding them whenever I have a chance... anyone who think that you can build these under 3 hours... well I want to see it... so make sure you let me know. I must slow because I have spent almost... well I am not even going to go there because it really does not matter.
