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 July ride to Avila Beach 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 TOO LONG.
Our Vice President Carla had such a good time planning the Utah trip
that she is thinking about doing 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.
JUNE RIDE June 2 - Our
ride to Vasquez
Rocks was the same time as the Powerhouse fire so we
had to alter our route a little bit and it was still a good ride. On
Ron Dumont's suggestion
we also rode up to a fire station in the San Gabriel Mountains which
has a great view of LA County.
We had lunch in the small town of Aqua Dulce.
UTAH RIDE Carla did a great job organizing our 8 day
Utah trip as we covered 4 states and a variety of scenery
and HOT temps. Riders that joined Carla were Mel, Andy, Ron
Dumont, Frank, Juergen,
Jeff Goldstein, Kim Mancino, Robert Williams, Lytle and Roy.
Everyone had a good time
on this long 8 day journey and it's best to see the great and colorful
photos that were taken by Juergen,
Frank and Ron. Just go to our Photo
Gallery page and click on the Utah photos links.

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.

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

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

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.
