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 our Members and under your main photo is your renewal year.  

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 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.

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.

July 14 -  Avila Beach.
Starting point- Ojai Full of Beans 11534 North Ventura Avenue.  Meet at 8 and depart at 9.
We will take Casitas Pass Road to Hwy 192 in Carpenteria over to 154.  Then Foxen to Nipomo to Fat Cat's Cafe
in Avila for lunch.
We will take Hwy 1 home going through Guadalupe and Los Alamos..
We do not have a planned stop in Santa Barbara but will make one if someone contacts me.

Please check out the 2013 Ride Calendar and stop by our Classifieds page, send me any motorcycle related
items that you would like listed.


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 and let me know how
many you want and what color.   The Lightening Ridge in Ventura does our shirts and the minimum
order is 24 shirts so I need requests for at least 12 shirts.  So far I have an order for 4 shirts.

OUR 2010 Chapter Logo was designed by Bill Muneio.

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 ride.
2- Small
2- Medium
4- Large
7- Large
0- XL
6- XXL

During 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.

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
on current merchandise.  Simply print out the offer or bring it in on your phone. 
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 questions you
have about price matching.  

Did you know that some of our members have their own web site?  
Just go to our main page, navigate to the left column and look under "Members' Sites".

Hopefully 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 always be found on our Towing page.
Paul's 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 their
per mile rate.  I think this is a great suggestion and I hope I remember this if I am ever in that situation.  

Thanks all.
