3 members have renewed so
far, thank you.
Membership renewal comes up every October and I am asking everyone to
please not wait till the last
minute and beyond because it gives me extra work to do. Renewal
is still only $12 and you can pay me
on the next ride or pay online, whatever is easier for
you. You can go to our Join/Renewal
page and see the info there. To see if you need to renew this
year just go to our Meet
Members and under your main photo is your renewal year.
PLEASE DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE.
For August we will go to Pine Mountain Club for their annual car show
then to Import
Motorcycle Specialist in Valencia where our member Kim works and he
invited us to their customer appreciation day.
In September we have 2 rides- the first toPorts O'Call
Village in San Pedro and the second is the "Ride
to the Flags" at Pepperdine. Every September when you drive by
Pepperdine you can see all the flags for all the people that died on
9-11, including kids and foreigners. This ride starts at Pt. Mugu
and goes through the SM Mountains ending at Pepperdine.
This is a great way to remember and honor the victims of the attack.
For October we will do the Lake Isabella/ Kernville ride that we almost
completed last year and hopefully the Duffys will join us again.
Please check our Ride
Calendar for more info on our rides.
Our Vice President Carla is planning an eight day October
ride covering some great roads and towns in Arizona
and New Mexico. Does this sounds like something you would want to
do? If so,
contact her on our Facebook page
or on our rides.
From Carla- I
really need to know who is interested in an Oct. trip to Carlsbad
Caverns. To do a trip like this is a fair amount of work which I won't
do unless I have some interest. So far 6 have expressed a verbal
interest but I need to know if that's for real or not. This would be
the first week of Oct. The temps look like they will range from the
high 80's to low 70's However there are no guarantees. We could
encounter rain. Oct. in my experience is the nicest month in AZ. THIS
IS SUPPOSED TO BE AN ADVENTURE if your looking for Disneyland this is
not it! We
would go through Prescott, Jerome, Sedona and eastern AZ. then into N.M
to Ruidoso, Roswell and Carlsbad. Also like to incorporate White Sands
then back through Santa Fe, Flag and hit up Route 66 to Kingman. Soooo
those that want to shake it up....post and then I will put it together.
Carla your VP.

We had a great turnout for our ride to Fat Cat's Cafe in Avila.
We had 19 people and 4 of them road with us for their first time.
We truly enjoyed these 4 people and hope they liked us too. Every
time we go to Fat Cat we have a large group so I make reservations and
they always take good care of us. The food and service has always
been great but please let me know if this is different from your
experience. Barry and Katarina took these photos-

2013 Ride Calendar

XL T-SHIRT ORDER We
have sold out of our $15 XL shirts again so I will put in a new order
later this year just for
XLs since we still have the other
sizes. If you want an XL shirt email
me know how
many you want
and what color. The Lightening Ridge in Ventura does our shirts
order is 24 shirts so I need requests for at least 12
shirts. So far I have an order for 4 shirts.
Shirts are $15 and come in blue or black with our logo on the back. Please let me know
which size you would like so I can bring it on our
AN AFFORDABLE GPS
our 49 ride we found out that Richard Gomes
had a non-Zumo Garmin GPS that he downloaded our 3 day routes to and it
was less than $200. So if you are looking for an alternative to
the $600 + Zumos you might want to get the Garmin
nuvi 755T (765T has Bluetooth). You can make your own routes
using Mapsource and download it to the nuvi. You can also
download our routes to it so you can see where we are going as your
ride with us. It is has the speed limit signs for most roads so
you will know what the speed limit is and why I am doing the speed that
I am doing. You can use this in any car as well. Click
here for the nuvi 755T and here is the cradle
to mount on your bike. If you run across a better price on the
nuvi please let me know so I can pass it on. These items will not
be around forever so don't hesitate.
Check out our Zumo page that has
some routes made by Cal Coast Riders.
MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS Looking
for the best price on MC gear? Get it at Cal Coast Motorsports!
Owner Craig Adams wants you to know "our
everyday pricing on Shoei helmets is
better than most online
sites. Also, we will match any online prices on equal terms
current merchandise. Simply print out the offer or bring it in on
We ask that everyone keep their business local and
support the Cal Coast as we support them."
I have mentioned many times before how important it is to support Cal
Coast Motorsports because
you will keep your money local, keep local
employees employed and have Cal Coast Motorsports
here when you need
them. So this personal message from Craig should answer any
have about price matching.

you will never
need to call a tow truck for your bike but if you do we have some
options to add to your cell phone. The following info can
be found on our Towing
Cycle Rescue in
Ventura County. Paul has
a trailer made for MCs and he knows what he's doing.
A member suggested that if you break down far from
home it might be cheaper to rent a u-haul truck
with a trailer and tow
your bike to wherever you need to go instead of paying a towing company
per mile rate. I think this is a great suggestion and I
hope I remember this if I am ever in that situation.
