Things I've learned in California. 1. Never pack a suitcase full of cool weather clothes if you're visiting in August. 2. A Chrysler 200 convertible is a nice car but it's nothing on tne Mustang convertible they promised and finally get a week later. 3. A "fully loaded" Mustang can rear up on the back wheels if you floor it. 3. Ladies make up approximately 0.5% of the market for motorcycle gear in the US. Don't expect to walk in to a store and find anything like you can buy on line. 4. Californian dogs don't understand 'Strayan. 5. It is possible to get airborn on the streets of San Francisco.
