Photos from a day at Venice Beach

Today, my friend, Phil, and I headed out to Venice Beach to check out the 4th Annual National Go-Topless Day march. The march was to “protest unconstitutional topless gender discrimination.” The idea being that it is not fair that men can go topless but women can not. To be honest, I agree with the cause but I foresee men being forced to cover up before women will be allowed to go bare. We shall see.

It was a beautiful summer day, we took the bikes. Unbelievable as it sounds [to anyone that has tried to park in Venice on a Sunday], we actually found free parking for each bike, within 25′ of the boardwalk. As it turned out, the protest started two blocks from a restaurant we wanted to check out, The Venice Ale House. Well, Phil wanted to check out the restaurant, I wanted to check out the beer. They had plenty of different beers on tap and offer 4 and 6 beer flights. I will definitely be back. These photos are of some of the sights that are easily found on the Venice Beach boardwalk, all within two blocks.

Photos from the Solvang Motorcycle Museum

These photos are from the Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum, located in Solvang, CA. Although I was aware that this museum existed, this was my first visit there. It was never convenient on prior visits. Their hours are set up around the fact that Solvang is a tourist town. As I recall the museum opened at 11 AM on Saturday and Sunday. I do not recall their weekday hours. Anyway, I am really glad I stopped by. I am pretty familiar with antique motorcycles and feel confident that I have at least heard of most makes and models, however, this collection had several models I was unfamiliar with. This includes Mars, Rudge and The James. All very cool bikes.

They say they switch the bikes out, so I guess I will have to stop by again and see what else they have picked up.

Another visit to Solvang

Last year, I introduced Tanya to Solvang, CA. Solvang is known as Denmark west due to its large Danish population. It is a quaint little town in the Santa Ynez Valley. It is a very nice ride or drive, either by car or motorcycle. Besides lots of touristy things, it is the home of my favorite winery, Sort This Out Cellars [STOC]. After a visit to STOC we found a nice hotel down the street to leave Buddy at, then we headed over to the Solvang Brewing Company. Solvang Brewing Company is fairly new and I guess we got there a week too early as they were not ready to release their own brews until the following weekend. Oh well, guess that gives me an excuse to go back there.
