Yes, lane splitting is not illegal in CA, thus, it's legal. poke

Just an idea that came to me..... thinking of all the wind resinstance and what to do with all the things you take to go surfing...

The only way I can dream up a way for you to do it. , and LIVE to tell about it would be to buy...

Both those bikes are heavy. Husky and KTM are the way to go if you are going for a dualsport. Have to pay, though!

For all those wringing their hands about the potential dangers of motorcycling be very careful of surfing...you can drowning be hit by your own board, be hit by someone elses board, be eaten by a shark...best stay at home...hang on...that's even more dangerous...! bricks

I once saw a guy w/ a surfboard on a motorcycle at my local break. I asked him about the crosswinds and he kinda shrugged it off. ...Did I mention I saw him once? Once. Never again. eek

Yeah, HotHail is spot on with the crosswind aspect.

Honestly I think a shortboard would be just fine. I would just suggest avoiding major highways where you will be going over 60 and encountering tractor trailers going 60 and above. I don't think I'd be taking on the 5 but to buzz around to and from the beach on roads with 50mph or less speed limits no problem. Longboard or midlength though....no way.

Yes, heavier but a whole lot less labor intensive. These are bikes you can ride all day, clean up a little bit, lube the chain and repeat again. And again and again. 20,000 miles for a valve inspection, not even an adjustment. You would be rebuilding the whole top end on your Husky/KTM before then.

So far just some basic stuff. Bigger rear sprocket, new DID x chain, pro taper bars, It still needs a way better bash plate, maybe just a new can instead of a whole new exhaust. The stock muffler is a heavy beast.

I was actually hoping the same thing. Bought my WRR 250 back in 2008 when they first came out. Still have it. It's a great bike, the engine/transmission is virtually bulletproof as long as you do some simple maint. Oil change every 3,000 miles, clean air filter, fresh fuel. Yamaha jumped out to an early lead and secured a huge market. Then they just sat on it. The 2019 WRR 250 is pretty much the exact same bike as my 2008 WRR 250. Hoping for years that Yamaha would do the same with a 450.

Honda got there first. Used to race Honda 2 strokes back in the 80's/early 90's. Honda's always had the best motors.

I rode my 650 street motorbike like an idiot. I drove it 0-80 with no helmets with a girl on the back wearing flip flops and t-shirts, through the back door of a restaurant and out the in door, buzzed during business hours with customers eating their food, 0-80 1/4 mile on the busiest street in town. So much fun but I'd be a goner if I rode regularly. After getting boxed into a construction fence by a car that didn't see me I quit riding it and dropped it off in my pops garage.

My landlord and his wife thought motorcycling would be fun. She wanted to ride on the back. : dancing So he went out shopping for a new bike.

Bought a brand new 2017 Yamaha R1.

They took it for 1 ride.

It's been sitting untouched in the garage ever since. roflmao

KTM 990. A 400 lb plus motorcycle. 98 HP. Obviously a pro rider in that pic. No normal mortal can do that The good side is that bike is heavy enough to kind of counteract side breeze on the board.
