Our Favorite Local Rides
Feel free to ask us for recommendations when we deliver your rental, but here are some recommendations you can check out beforehand:
Angeles Crest Highway to Newcombs Ranch (info): A famous bit of motorcycle paradise... 38 miles of excellent winding mountain road, perfect for motorcycles, with the destination of Newcombs Ranch Restaurant two-thirds the way up.
The Rock Store (info): The Rock Store is a famous motorcycle stop in Southern California and has been featured in many commercials, films, music videos, television productions and magazine photos. It is a great ride though the canyons of Santa Monica mountains toward the coast.
Neptunes Net (info): A good destination after carving or cruising the Santa Monica mountain canyons.
Hook Up With Local Los Angeles Riders
Looking for riders to go out with in the Los Angeles area during your visit? Try some of these spots every Saturday and Sunday morning:
Little Tujunga Road (info): "If God had a motorcycle, this is where he'd be."
Mulholland Drive (info): Awesome, curvey road that splits the Hollywood / San Fernando Valley, right along the top of a great ridge line with views of either side. Just watch out for the drifters there late at night (the Evo and WRX kind, that is).
Italian Bike Night (info): Great crowd of Ducatisti in Santa Monica, meets up every Wednesday at 6:30pm at Rick's Tavern in Santa Monica (map).
