It's that time of the year where I remind everyone that our reaction
time needs to
be at 110% during our rides. So for the safety of the entire
group we don't allow
alcoholic drinks and other kinds of DUI substances during our ride.
I want all of
you to be able to go home after our ride. Thank you.
CLUB VICE PRESIDENT Carla is our new
Vice President and she will make sure that everyone will sign the
waiver form, glance at the bikes for anything unsafe (balding tires,
frayed cables, etc.) take my place if I am unable to make a ride
of sickness, and other important duties.
Thank you Carla.

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

shirts. So far I have an order for 4 shirts.

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.

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.
