There is no doubt that winter is here. Regardless of where you live in Canada, one look out the window is the only encouragement required to stay indoors and focus on memories of your favourite warm weather riding destination.
As the result of a perfectly-timed invitation from Harley-Davidson Canada, I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of days riding around Southern California in January. In addition to a brief respite from the inclement temperatures at home, this was an opportunity to experience the brand’s complete Softail lineup while enjoying the favourable weather that makes California one of my all-time favourite locations.
A full report on the Softail lineup, and whether or not Harley-Davidson has what it takes to win over a dedicated sport bike enthusiast like myself, will appear in an upcoming issue of Inside Motorcycles. In the meantime, with frigid temperatures in the west and Ontario under siege by freezing rain and snow, it seemed like a perfect time to share some warm weather California images taken by the amazing Benedict Campbell. Hopefully these will assist in channelling memories of your own riding adventures.
Please enjoy and stay warm.
