California is where you will hear people say hunting and killing animals is wrong, they say, "Let's go get a burger."
California is where you buy a new shotgun and need to buy a new lock for the gun. Never mind that the shotgun comes with a cable lock that will render it inoperable, you need to buy a lock on the "California approved list". There is only one lock approved for many shotguns and almost all of the locks are made by the same company. (Kickback??? Err, should I say campaign contributions?)
California is where many auto shops will need to buy dynomometers to smog check older cars. The cost to shops will be about $50,000 which means the cost to smog check a car will go up to about $80.
I spend more and more of my free time fighting for the right to ride my mtn bike and let my dogs run off-leash when I take them for a walk.
Bad laws and bad ideas often start here and get spread nation wide. Help us get California under control again.
If you live in California, vote!
If you live outside of California, contribute to your own cause by fighting bad laws being developed in California.
The Blue Ribbon Coalition and other's can help.

Everybody wants growth for their community, but the side-effects are another issue.
I really believe that Republicans are fighting to preserve a past that never was, and Democrats are fighting for a future that never will be.
Politics today scares me a little bit to be honest with you.

I'm probably not interested in putting anymore money in the bike. It's in awesome shape and is dialed in very well for this altitude right now. I just don't have enough time to ride it anymore and have thought of getting rid of it recently.
I've had a lot of bikes over the years. My wife gives me a lot of crap about getting rid of them and buying new one's all the time. I only have 5 in the garage right now and I want to do more to my WR. At least she's cool with having bikes for me and the boys.

It's in the middle of nowhere, littered with uranium mines and about as desolate as you can get and they are still trying to shut it down. The riding is fantastic to say the least.

I of course moved here prior to the genital removal requirements. Anyway, your post made me laugh. The last one I sent in referred to Utah anyway.
