There is a 24 hour m/c tow service for my area: cell phone 323-528-7262 or pager 323-339-0799. >From my house, you can ride to Mullholland Drive (in about 10 minutes) and go from Burbank to Pacific Palisades along the Santa Monica Mountains for a great 2 hour hop. The road is windy and open on the weekends. On the weekdays, you're better off avoiding LA totally; the drivers are agressive, selfish, and dangerous. As in any city, stay away from the main city streets. Take the Pacific Coast Highway up and down the coast for some beautiful views; once you pass LA into Malibuyou can veer off to the side mountain roads with lots of joy ahead. Honda of Hollywood (323-466-3247) is a Beemer dealer about a mile from my house. There are better service centers, such as Brown Motorworks, about an hour away.

Model(s): R1100rs, R100gs/pd,R50 (1962) (have owned 2 K100rs's and a 80gs/pd)
Comments: I have been riding BMW bikes since 1973 when I traded my Honda 350 for an R60US. while not every BMW I have owned has been a winner, there has not been another make to attract me so far. I venture on a few long rides year, but as a semi-pro musician with many weekend gigs I find scheduling a problem in taking rides over a few days long. I have been in MOA for about 10 years, and have been to a few national meets. I will be in Munich for Octoberfest this year with my band, and will probably go to the factory or museum as a side trip. Any other good ideas?
