A snowy Sunday seems an appropriate time to look at a more sunny adventure.
A few years back in January, a buddy and I were traveling to Los Angeles on what might be categorized as an alcoholic quest, but I had carte blanche on the first few days of the trip. With my admittedly limited knowledge of LA, I only had 1 place that I needed to visit.

After being in there for a while, I got to a point were my attention was being pulled in every direction as every corner I turned revealed a new wrinkle in what was already a notable collection. There were 2 stroke race bikes, choppers, drag bikes, rare and tricked out road bikes, pretty much everything I could wish to swing a leg over. In the back there was a full working shop and they happened to be working on a few British bikes when I wandered back there. Yoshi, the owner is an incredibly cool dude who embraces the fact that his shop has become a museum of sorts for awestruck people like myself, and lets face it, I was basically a tourist when I walked through the door.
