     On the Road





By Jeff Goldstein




Mount Wilson

Nine of us...Ron, Carla, Bob, Lisa, Dan & Mary, Shahin, Barry, and yours truly  set out for Mount Wilson...departing from Del Taco in Camarillo. Nice to see Barry, Dan and  Mary(two up), and Lisa out riding with us again!!! It was a cool morning. Not cold, but cool. I like riding in cooler weather.  The warm temps will be here soon enough....so cool is cool!   The weather was mostly clear, and very comfortable in low 60's. Perfect for riding.  I  enjoy the twisty roads through Santa Clarita.  They are a lot of fun to ride. We did a gas stop on Sand Canyon  at the Chevron before we went up Soledad...Aliso....AFH...and the Tujunga's  Angeles Crest... and the ride up the mountain.  By the time we got up to Mount Wilson I was hungry and looking forward to lunch at the Cosmic Cafe.   First thing...They have a limited menu. Hot dogs....a sandwich....a salad...chili...Frito pie. I got a chili dog.  It was pretty good...though the chili was just ok.  While we were eating a thick... cool fog rolled in. Pea soup thick. Visibility went from pretty good, to maybe 50ft or less in places.

Do your hands get numb when you ride?

Roy Hooper found a good article on hand numbness while riding. Below is an excerpt from the article, and a link to the  full article.

Motorcycle riders sometimes experience hand numbness, forearm fatigue, and other hand/wrist/arm discomfort -- especially early in the riding season.
This occurence is surprisingly prevalent among riders.
Recently in the Motorcycle Enthusiasts group forum on Linkedin, there were over 100 comments regarding this problem -- which shows how very common it is.  Often, the best suggestions come from other riders.

Cal Coast Motorsports owner Craig Adams said that "we will match any on line 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.  

HEADS UP!

Next time you are in Cal Coast you might want to check out their CLEARANCE section which is at the end of the chemical aisle.  There is a clothing rack and also some helmets against the wall.  They have some
good deals there.
