LaHabra Heights looking towards Long Beach.  Hard to believe it's twenty-two miles East of downtown LA. 

The abundance of rain this year brought out the best colors and greenery; the best I've seen in many many years.

Truly spectacular Spring here in SoCal. 

 

This is from today’s trip home.  

 

This is is on Mulholland Hwy just East of Cornell. 

 

The mustered is about halfway to spectacular. 

Will capture & share as it develops.

It was these hills hills in the background that a spectacular LAFD helicopter rescue took place during the Woosely fire.

Playing around with the new phone in low light, hopefully no one's bothered I parked here for a few minutes : )

That's a beautiful little P-Car Bill but tell me, did you try the Frozen Custard? :grin:  Ted Drewes :lick: Last time back from Colorado we stopped at TD's only to find the line out to the street, we decided to continue driving. :(

Now.......

 

 

This is the site of an upcoming project to build a wildlife bridge over the very busy 101/Ventura freeway. 

There have been at least one bear & several cougars struck by vehicles in this area.

Do you have a rule whereby, like, you can only take one photo with a car, and then you have to move on to another one?

Nice day for a cruise in the forest, no internet, almost no people, and no cell (Molly couldn't even work : )

I might've included a shot of the old German sled that got us there (and back) but am apparently over the limit so you'll have to use your imagination.

...or perhaps you’re embarrassed that you’d somehow driven the same car twice in one month and don’t want us to know? ;)

Probably not, heck you’d be proud of this one (I've read your ride reports). I call it the world’s coolest $700. truck, acts like a Jeep, drives like a Benz..

Then there's Brutus, his more muscular cousin, the world's first 160mph overland apparatus.  :eek:  :grin:

I started up to Holderness NH to see a buddy of mine (actually my old boss) and it began to rain around exit 4, also the temps strarted dropping (as I went north, strange :grin: ). At about exit three I began going over the bailout sequence and seeing many wipers moving left/right in the southbound lane it was time for plan B.

 

Max BMW. :thumbsup: Was easy routing from that point with the Nav. I pulled in and to my surprise the ADV in the previous pic was all setup for demo rides. :yes:

 

My quick impression of the shiftcam is it's a slight bit smoother than the Wethead motor, shifts better (quick shift too) but I don't think the seat of the pants power output was the wow factor. Now saying that, it did want to wheelie in one, two, and possibly three but, I ran out of straight road. The computer holds the front wheel off the ground about an inch. :revit:

 

The nicest thing about the ride was, nothing felt weird. It's the perfect blend of RT & GS. I could feel both bikes in one, which is kind of the point.

 

On the way home I stopped for a lobster roll but fifty degrees outside makes something hot more appealing, so a haddock sandwich it was.

 

Edit..a better pic of the faux vegetation for a truer sense of adventure. :grin:

Edit...kinda screwing up the theme of right now but one more.

Maybe a little of a cheat, this was take on 4-24 just as the ice was going off the lake here in Northern Wisconsin.  Trumpeter Swans doing their mating dance. I could only upload a clip as the mirroring dance went on for 15 minutes.  Sorry for the jumpiness, I had the camera on full zoom and the lens used doesn't have image stabilization.  It was a real cacophony that day as the Brown Cranes hidden in the bay behind me were shrieking it up doing the same thing.

Reminds me of the one time I surfed at Malibu. The locals I was with said, we have to paddle out before sunrise, I said why.. because there won’t be any room after that. That was 1965. :eek:  :grin:

Referring to the fact he pulled some strings somewhere, it's a 900lb race car from the late 50's. Not really meant to be street legal unless it's a replica then maybe, looks pretty real though.
