Out and about in Long Beach, CA

Whats good down this way?
I wanted to rent a BMW 1200GS or something and cruise the coast this week but I think the <25 yrs. old thing might nip that plan in the butt/ bud.

Well, unfortunately it's looking like a one or two day rental is no less than $500, so that plan is falling through the cracks. I'll just have to find something else to do.

On a side note, I went to Walmart to fetch some supplies I forgot to pack and ended up in the ghetto of Long Beach, and what I later found out was a member store of thepeopleofwalmart website..... It was interesting to say the least and i found myself hoping I would make it out of the store with my fancy watch and sneakers still on.

Haha. That Walmart is nuts. What are you doing in Long Beach? Stay on Pine, near Broadway. Plenty of stuff to do and see around there. North of 4th Can get sketchy.

Nice bike shop here in LA so I took the opportunity to sit on a CB1000r and a S3R, also saw a flat black 9er riding On I-405 S today.
