California Groovin’

October 24, 2016 | By Mike Seate

DSC_0387The upcoming December/January issue of CRM covers a lot of ground- literally- as we offer up a collection of features culled from the past twelve months of biking road trips. One of our favorite playgrounds for two-wheeling is Southern Cali, a place where networks of canyon roads make for very memorable, very exciting riding. The image above was shot along fabled Mulholland Drive’s Serpentine, a place where the skilled, the brave and the foolish gather on all sorts of bikes every weekend. We’ve seen some incredible riding on this amazing stretch of pavement, like the mad, knee-down antics of sportbike jockeys makes for some entertaining viewing. ¬†Our coverage includes a stop by the nearby Rock Store, perhaps the most popular motorcycle gathering place in all of the Golden State. We also point your front wheels towards some of the region’s other bike-friendly joints where cold beer, hot BBQ and rare cafe bikes are always on view. Look for it, plus a visit to Italy’s Moto Guzzi Museum with ace photographer Kevin Wing, plus a road test of our original Triton special, on sale Dec. 5
