if youre looking to get away from fake people, miami is not the place.


hit the road and see where it takes you. you arent the only one that thinks or feels the way you do, hell, youre on a triumph forum, all of us on here share a very unique taste in motorcycles.

sounds like you have no burdens holding you back, now just take the leap.

I'm a bit of a nomad myself... I'd guess that I've lived in something like 20 towns. Liked most, didn't like a couple, haven't regretted any, met people whose company I enjoy in all.

great post. i like that first quote, may have to put that in my sig line.

Don't let the yarning to escape make you mis what's right under your nose, though ;)

I'd say people are truer where living is harsher.

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

come down here to miami we have a nice group we ride with weekly, you will find some fake people down here just like you'll find fake people everywhere you go. The bottom line is life is what you make of it and it all depends on you! the type of attitude you have towards it.

I did the same thing when I was 20. I had just graduated from The University of Utah, and I had enough of that town. I spent my whole life in Salt Lake City, and wanted to find a better life. I sold two motorcycles, had a big garage sale, packed my bags, hopped on my CBR F3, and rode off.

I went to LA and stayed there for a few months. I didn’t really like it all that much, so I rode up to San Francisco and I have been here ever since. Lots of great tracks, tons of fun stuff to do, AMAZING roads to ride, wine country just a quick shoot up the road, or take the twisties. I absolutely love this town (Northern CA in general really), and would not trade it for any other city.

The best thing I ever did for my soul was hop on my bike and ride off. Was it easy? No, but it was worth it.

675R dedicated track bike.

I live in the Inland Empire (not Anaheim) region of California, where life is, for the most part, not possible. Buy not possible, I mean, here mostly everything is fake. From the buildings to the pavement, landscape to atmosphere, here in the inland empire, it's tough to get in touch with mother nature. Here in the inland empire, it's hard to eat healthy, hard to be heard, hard to make a global difference.

Here most people have a false sense of accomplishment, a yearn to cock measure, here a lot of insecurity exists. Some of you may be thinking, these things exists everywhere, we can't know for sure, unless we've been everywhere.

I just know that for 27 years, I've been here, and today it's just me, haven't met anyone like me, even with siblings and relatives. So maybe I should go search, hunt if you will, for likeness, for change, and if not change, people who want change, will die fighting for change. I am not one to be content, or one who says "well what can you do?" Change yourself you change the world. And maybe that starts with a change in location.

Any of you just say f it, let's see where my intuition takes me...I know my streety would love to.
I hear you on some of those points. Really, this is a Southern California culture thing, and I too often have a hard time relating. I used to joke that one day I was going to empty my bank account, get and my car and just drive until I landed somewhere. The "IE" has its own special problems, and it really can be unbearable at times.

Have you considered the PNW? You seem a bit of a hippie, it may suit you. Beautiful place if you can get past the weather.

lol. A great friend of mine lives in Eugene, it's always been a potential. It's beautiful up there. I know the bike would love breathing in some of that air.

Speaking of which, with the Air Quality Index out here, my STR might as well be second hand smoking lol. It's gotta have some effect over time.
