So El Mirage is this weekend. I hope I can make it.
Here are some pics of SCTA El Mirage from a few years back:

 Shots were taken when I was on my way home from Lake Elsinore. Inflating your tires (my truck tire to 40psi) will increase your mpg. My truck is little and only 55 hp but its good reliable worker. (I think I'm going to keep it and take it off of Craigslist.)
That's my "new to me" bike in the truck bed. It's a xv250, and people actually make choppers out of 'em too. It's tempting, but I'm going to keep it fairly stock. I need to find some drag pipes for it, bike is running to quiet, that's dangerous. Anyway, it gets ~83mpg!

Get around...

on a moped.
This is my 1979 Puch Maxi N. It has an old Gila kit with after market pipe. Super fun to ride and hauls for an old kitted moped. It still needs a little fine tuning, running a tiny bit rich. 
Well, there is a MB race this weekend in Apple Valley (4-13). Looking forward to running it on the track! I'm still learning how to ride and race so these events makes for good practice (A moped rally is too, but not as safe, you have to worry about cars and stuff).  
Going to be camping there too. Stay tuned for pictures of the event...

VW bus

It was about a month ago that this picture was taken. There were plenty of vans, but for some reason I only took one picture. I like its aged  look and low stance. The color is nice too.

My new daily ride

A used 24" Sun Retro cruiser. I tooks parts from another bike to make it look like this. Its all used stuff. Left over parts were given away. (Its a good feeling to let stuff go) It rides real nice too. My favorite thing on the bike bike is the $1.50 cup holder! This is all you need to get around in Long Beach.

An avenue of fun:

drove down to dago last weekend to drop some stuff off, hang out with friends and ride in a moped rally.
In many ways, lots more fun than a motorcycle. It's gnarly taking a 49cc-80cc mopeds to 50+ mph speeds.
Im looking forward to the next ride.
