I was pulled over by a bike cop on my r5 (Predecessor to the rd350) for a noise violation and was told " it sounds like a dirt bike". I told the officer it's a two-stroke. I don't think he knew what that meant. Took it to the police station and had it the ticket signed off. Different cops have different opinions just hope for a good one. I'd of thought a bike cop would like bikes.

People are starting to contact me about the 99 Revolt ,
I'm serious about it, H.B. motor officers are out of control, those cops think they can take our right to ride in that city away,
I will ride a legal bike, I will obey the traffic laws. and I will ride that city.

So there are places you are allowed to drive a car but not ride a bike?

Just a suggestion but a 5 or 10 dollar optional donation would to go toward helping pay any tickets issued directly related to the event, not to cover speeding and other non related violations. We did this years back when told we could not run a 45' waterfall in kayaks because it was deemed unsafe, we ended up with 200+ people overwhelming the forest service and running the falls with no injuries. 7 people were arrested and a portion of the money went toward bail. The publicity attracted pro-bono lawyers and all charges were overturned in a class action suit with no one being required to appear in court. I can run that waterfall to this day! Money raised was donated to providing kayaking lessons to underprivileged kids and it worked out well for everyone! Key is setting it up in a manner that does not alienate riders that cannot afford to donate....just being there is helpful and a big enough group can change things!

We had several magazines on board that contacted local press just prior to the event and ran articles after to bring national publicity to the kayaking community while not alerting the local authorities prior to the event.

I would love to see this on the news if planned well!

I remember riding the no helmet law days of CA. Times have changed...
Now I am in TX with no helmet law, ride bikes with unbaffled loud pipes, no turn signals and vert plates. Whenever I think of going back to CA, stories like this make me glad I am here...

I grew up at all of the mom-and-pop surf shops and hole-in-the-wall restaurants that used to make up Main Street in HB. It was an amazing place with tons of great history.

Now it is a stucco'd yuppie hell full of lattes and people who have never even touched a surfboard. Fuck going there anyway. I don't want to hang out with all of the fucks that frequent Main Street anyway.

I hear that. Grew up in So Cal and had the run of San Diego from P.B. to Encinitas. What a great time. Its all gone now. Housing Tracts and Trailer parks.Businesses All geared for the tourist. Really Sucks. They call this progress? I'm in Seattle now, and its not much better. Spend time here and Alaska, but miss the weather big time!

A bunch of us got ticketed and run off years ago in La Jolla. They actually posted a sign, "No Motorcycles" on a public street. We parked all legal like and patronized one of the local businesses, (kept reciepts). When we came out Johnny law was writing tickets. We asked him to schedule all 5 of us all on the same day. We shot up a bunch of pics and went to court, (BTW we planned this). Our defense was that we paid the same registration fees as everyone else and NO ONE can deny our street legal vehicle any access on any public road. I forget the number of the VC but it's in there somewhere. All charges and fines were dropped and the sign/ordinace was removed. Protest alone will not solve the problem, you need to get tickets and fight them in court. You also need to make written complaints about the PD's enforcement policies. Everyone needs to get involved regardless of the charges. If the court is flooded with tickets and complaints from a specific area that will document a problem. Then everyone needs to get together and hire a lawyer and sue the PD for mis-enforcement. Then in the year 2035 the HBPD will change their policy and you'll be allowed free access. Or, bring 1000 armed bikers down to the PD office and shoot the place up. It's time for violent protest!

i lived in so-cal for ~20 years. Everything from Encinitas to San Fernando Valley. I miss the weather... miss the car culture... but moving to Portland a few years ago was the best choice ever. Realized my kids wouldn't have the same experience I had in so-cal, so we left.

So-cal changed in that 20 years I was there. went from a bunch of rad surf communities to... well... housing tracts and trailer parks, like said above. my one-time beloved Hermosa Beach is lost to me now. Just a memory of what it was.

here in Portland, i run my plate on the side of my bike, not visible from the back. nobody seems to care. of course, most of the time i ride like a grandpa....

I would think that line would allow a acception as the tool kit is intended to fix your bike not take someone else s, Kinda hard to steal a bike and ride yours at the same time! But the key word is" think" common sense in interpreting laws by the police seems to be lacking in some ares.

As opposed to the unlawful taking or driving of a motorcycle WITH the consent of the owner? I'm sure I'm missing a whole interpretation but the language of the writing bothers me. Just hope some schmo doesn't end up pinned to the hood of a police car over a set of allen wrenches. But just to CMA, maybe I'll change all the hardware on my bike over to Torx.

Anyway, we should probably get back on topic...

The problem is all the good old folks are moving out of California, paving the way for idioits with an image of what California is. Oh well, I'll die here.
