I still like visiting Family and Friends of my Home state but I was getting tired of the Rush Hour traffic and that was 33 freaking years ago!

It's much worse now on so many different levels and it's a bummer to see.

But if this isn't the final nail in the coffin! ermm

Moving to Salt Lake in a month and I can't wait.

Being that the moto scene out there has improved and it's close enough to CA that I can visit the tracks if I miss them.

I can't wait. This state is an absolute nightmare to live in if you make under $60k a year. Looking forward to actually being able to afford a house 😂

Quoted only due to use of “dumbdick” made me think of Filthy Phil talking about his friends and competitors alike. That made this thread moto to me 🤷🏻‍♂️

Thinking more and more every single day about bailing out of this place. At the end of the day nothing is keeping me here except for moto, which a lot of tracks have closed down anyways in the past 2 years. Riding out of the question I think it’s time to get an exit strategy planned soon.

If true, we would have 35 years (that's THIRTY FIVE!!!!) to iron out a few details. There is really no reason to panic....

here in Vegas it’s nothing but Cali Plates lately and my god you guys can’t drive! what’s with going 5-10 mph under the speed limit in the left lane on the freeway and then flipping me off when you force me to pass on the right?

I took a little mini vacation in August. Drove from KS to Muir Beach and headed south hitting as many beaches as I could all the way to SD. Here are a few things I can state as fact:

1. Traffic...the freeways are crowded. But, the drivers are fast, aware and pretty damn courteous. (compared to most of the country, especially here in the plains states).

2. If you aren't in a gawdawful hurry there are secondary/backroads that are in excellent condition and offer an eye opening view of rural CA you just won't get at 80 mph on the big roads.

3. The state is full of hard ass working people...working those crazy big ass fields in the central valley...working 3 jobs to support a small business that is their dream...hustling to afford the insane prices for everything. They damn sure ain't afraid of work.

4. The rest of the country needs a lesson from California on diversity inclusion/acceptance. Everyone knows there are a lot of Spanish/Asian Americans in CA....but there are folks from just about everywhere....everywhere you go. And they're GETTING along. Their kids play together, their dogs play together...the price of welcome seemed to be a smile and a laugh.

5. I'm not stupid or blind...I did see poverty, homeless, trash...but not nearly as much as I expected. California is not paradise but it doesn't suck.

6. Lastly, the Pacific Ocean is cold as f$@k. I expected cold water up north but I wrongly expected San Diego to be like bath water. Hell no...like 2 degrees warmer....Destin it ain't. But, I'd trade it in a heartbeat for this Kansas winter that's on the way.

Not Montana, I heard it's full.

Probably not Seattle, it rains everyday here.

I know, I didn't answer your question.

Went to a CARB related meeting back when this started in 1996. Not one manufacture bothered to showed up.
I will be riding my plated 2 stroke here in Idaho in 2035 unless the rapture happens.

If the goal is to get away from morons, there is nowhere to go. However, if California dumb doesn't match your specific taste for dumb, surely you will find other places where their dumb is a better match for your dumb.

Spent the first 29 years of my Life in SoCal and would not change a thing.

I still luv to visit as it has many beautiful places to visit.

But in the last 20 years or so it's too expensive to live there and the traffic is no longer Rush Hour it can be anytime even on weekends.

That and the policies and now you won't be able to buy a new Motorcycle in 15 years.
That's why I created this thread.
This is a Motorcycle forum isn't it?

Not arguing or trying to start a war just thought it was some important info.

While I have travelled to quite a few states across the country, I wouldn’t want to live in many of the states I’ve visited. Weather being one of the things I like most about living in So Cal. I’m not down for living in the snow and as much as I enjoy Lake Havasu, I can’t imagine living in that heat during the summer months.

Although... I do like upper AZ, Utah and Idaho.
I’m kinda stuck here until I retire, there’s not enough Motion Picture Industry in these states to make a living. But Idaho seems to be my choice to settle in after I’m done working. I have never gotten too deep into politics, but with our current situation in our country, I’ve been blind to the Politics of California for too long. I can afford to retire here and I may end up not leaving, but I plan on traveling and am going to do some extended stays to see if I could handle moving. Born and raised here, it won’t be an easy thing to do, all my family is here and being single, I just can’t see myself doing g it on my own.

I see the way of life in other states and am very Envious of the lifestyles that I missed out on. A whole different way of living that I wish I was a part of !

You nailed it !
Texas has some crazy property taxes, from what I hear. In California I am currently protected with Prop 13. I’d feel different if I was paying taxes on $700K (current appraised value), versus $168K (purchase price in 1992)

If these idiots get rid of this, I’ll be forced to leave and join the others leaving...

IIRC you can skip out on property taxes in TX altogether if you have a little land with a few cattle.

this is life in any metro area with jobs.

if you're a single guy making anywhere between 60-90k a year in the south you can live a pretty good life
