Anyone like to ride at night?

Giant bugs I come across regularly. What I've found that helps out a lot is good riding gear. A jacket can help to cushion your body from the sting of bugs and rain, and a full face helmet works great to keep from accidentally eating one of them. Granted when one of those big suckers decides to take aim at the center of your face shield that raises a whole new problem with visibility.

RE: Anyone like to ride at night?
Living in L.A. is the same as the outback somewhere, you gotta watch out for the "Wild Life" here too but i gotta say i love the ride on a warm summer night cruising Ventura blvd. in Studio City towards the end to Sherman Oaks. Its one of a few "main drags" where you can enjoy the night air and a nice easy 40mph ride (with only a few red stop lights) while seeing all them pretty lights and night life.

I stay away from Hollywood blvd. and Sunset blvd. because of all the kids that are driving around... like crazy kids. besides all the stop and goes.

My fav. is going over in the valley through one of the mountain passes till i come onto Pac. Coast Hwy. and cruise the coast back to Santa Monica/Venice Beach and back into the city. Nice easy enjoyable ride any time of the year, but i like it better in the summer.
Can't wait!
