Come Ride With Me - A Brief Motorcycle Ride In L.A.

Here is a completely non-political video on YouTube.com, just for fun. Click on it to take a short motorcycle ride with me. Hey, maybe we can make it political after all: if EVERYONE rode motorcycles, we wouldn't have traffic jams.

It's about a minute and a half.

That was pretty cool, Walter.

And it IS political. Not only does your motorcycle cut down on traffic, but it uses less gas and spits out lower levels of emissions (per mile driven) than a car does as well. Plus it's fun.

Thanks for the ride.

Well, that was a nice try but it was just what I expected...noisy, bumpy, dangerous and freezing cold! If we are going CHEAPER smaller and lighter, I prefer an enclosed golf cart with a heater and air conditioning!

Glad you liked it, Patrick! You're right about traffic and polution. On my latest trip to France, I noticed they ride LOTS of scooters, seemingly everywhere.

And, Anonymous, it's really FUN! The wind and the bumps help you focus on being right there, right then. Know what I mean? And it's not really freezing; you dress warmly, plus, you can get a bike with a fairing, heated handles, etc. Did I mention, "fun!"?

Yeah, walking. That's a good solution. Let's see, you can walk about four miles per hour. Hey, that actually IS faster than driving in this town!

Why would you bother getting a license? As long as you don't drive in Costa Mesa, you don't need a license or insurance.

This vid is pointless, maybe that's why I (almost) enjoyed it!

Motorcycling is good mindless meditation. Until, you know, someone runs you over.
