Could be a ligit plate from another rare street legal lotus that found its way onto the back of the track car.  Even with dash cam plate readers what cop would know the difference between a street legal vintage exotic and a vintage track car.

 

Don't ask why I would ever think of doing that:classic_rolleyes:.

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.

Here is a pic from the la times showing yellow hillsides, in Calabassas I think.  Unfortunately when these mustard plants dry out they become fuel for fires.  Oh boy.

Yes, that's the Calibasas Grade looking West/Northbound heading to Las Virgenes. 

 

The Mustard is not a native & is detrimental  to the landscape. 

 

That grove of eucalyptus on the left was the point of origin  of another nasty SoCal fire in Oct. 96 (Note that the cause was not downed lines but rather untrimmed trees that touched the lines).

 

Edit: Note that the 96 fire links/discription are a bit mixed up.  

 

Not able to proof read before submitting post & don't have the "band width" to correct right now.

Nice video! I didn't have a tag for it but before a race I'd sometimes drive my 67 Porsche 910 around the hood to make sure everything worked. After thinking about that Lotus I figured it was a replica which is much easier to get a tag for (race cars don't have titles just for that reason). Plus not many will drive a half million dollar vintage race car around on the street.Then I googled the guy and came across this, I don't think it's a replica.   https://www.huffpost.com/entry/right-next-door-michael-a_b_11572882  

 

Years later when I traded for a 908, during the restoration a buddy through a series of events and contacts was able to get a title (in an unnamed state) transferred it to the state he lived in then signed off and sent it to me. I never got a tag for it but probably could've.

Wow winter just won't let go!   Right now my wife and I are in the northern part of Wisconsin and that snow you have will be coming as rain here today, but just barely.  100 miles to the north and it snow.  The ice went off the lake last week, but snow is still lurking in the shadows.

Welp . . . you got to see it before a K bike gently ran into the back him at a stop sign, scratching his special ordered black boxes. :ohboy:Neither of them dropped their bikes, could have been much worse.

A nice guy I'd never met announced he would lead a ride [our local club], a buddy told me about it and we decided to give it a go. But - more showed up than anticipated and these kinds of things turn into a 'All Skate' event with everybody looking for something different and skill levels unknown for most riders. At lunch, I told my buddy we'd need to go our own way back :revit:. We were splitting off at that light in the video and we went home through the woods - as is my custom.

 

Not having given much thought beforehand, I was flabbergasted by the leader taking us on well traveled roads - now congested by weekend traffic. We were but boxcars in a train. We only got off the beaten path for the last 8 miles or so to lunch. :ohboy:

Sorry Terry, sometimes (ok most of the time) the only one who gets my sense of humor is me. My worry about scratching the black cases on a big bad adventure bike would probably draw scorn over at ADV. :grin:

This unloved Mega Mansion is in Andover Ma. It was built and then abandoned for years, it appeared to sell and the grounds were all spruced up but, it's for sale again. :dontknow: I ride by it when I make my butcher run.

Well, the battery is 13kw so I figure that fully charged I could leave the lights on for 9 days before I would need to recharge:)

Dang!  That Norton behind the Vincent got me to kick myself in the ass yet again.  I didn't buy my brother's Norton when he was hard up for cash in the mid 80's...$500.  Stupid, Stupid, Stupid me!    A true classic. An early '69 750 Commando Fast Back with the combat engine, candy red similar to this one except the oil tank and battery cover were also candy red.  It also had the round Villers badge on the tank instead of the decal.  If you go to my profile you can see that bike between the two BMWs

It's Mandarin Rd. Pat, follows a point in the river for about six miles. There's an aquifer that follows the river too and why the big oak trees grow along it, some are hundreds of years old. I live at about the halfway point (nearly 40 years) drive it several times a day and never tire of it. The little spur on the map is County Dock Rd. (still damaged from Hurricane Irma) that I photograph sometimes. Several spots where the road has to go around the trees.

Nice to have good gear to deal with this. 

Abnormally wet 2018/2019 rain season.   

 

Unusual to have ave rain this late.

Bill is Hansen's Surf Shop still there, it was just a hole in the wall when I was there in 60's. Don Hansen was back behind the counter sanding away on a surfboard, he made some good ones too.
