Rock Store?

I recently moved from Oregon. (Tons of awesome roads up there) What is this famous rock store? I rode Malibu cyn, mullholand cyn, and topanga cyn the other day. I never saw a "Rock Store." I only rode them once, though. Any other roads in the San Fernando Valley I should know about?
Thanks!

Thumbs up Nice

Excellent site Tim! A great variety of twisties that I will have to explore someday. Yesterday I took a 500 mile roundtrip ride to check out one in particular: highway 58. Here is a link of the road:

http://www.pashnit.com/roads/cal/Highway58.htm

Although it was a little chilly out that day (50) The cold didn't ruin my fun. One of the best roads I have been on. Just me and my VFR and approximately 80 miles of twists, a few hairpins, ups/downs, and high-speed straights. I counted a total of six cars and zero LEOs. Simply amazing! Way better than Ortega and a nice change from Angeles Crest. looking forward to going back when it gets warmer.

Tim, I read some of your journeys- you are a nut!

Highway 58 and stuff...

Glad you found the CALIFORNIA MOTORCYCLE ROADS site helpful and that it may have turned you on to something new. It's been getting a lot of attention on all the message boards lately. Makes all the work worthwhile. I trust my description of the Highway 58 ride fit with your experience on the road. My description is somewhat short although the pics turned out great. Twisties are a dime a dozen around here and I actually like the straight west of Simmler the best! Deserted straights are, well, shall we say, they fit well with the design capabilites of my ZX-11. Interesting that out of all the rides- you give it higher marks than Angeles Crest or Ortega. I trust the site comes in handy when you start to explore that 500 mile radius- you don't always have to ride the same road over and over again. I've done many, many 500-mile solo days and been grinning from ear to ear when I got back. Mind if I cut and paste your comments into the pashnit.com guestbook? ~Tim

Sometimes I feel like a nut. Sometimes I don't.

If theres a cop: pat your hand like your patting a dog on top of his head. As in slow down or take it easy

No cop: thumbs up! Hit It!

I like it
