Year round riding can be done in California, just a shortage of quality dual sport (i.e. dirt) destinations near San Jose. The mild weather can be habit forming. Travel a bit and opportunities expand. I'm no expert but someone was advising me the other day on still being able to get Utah concealed weapons permit honored by California, classed conducted in california too, renewable from California also. Or holster the handguns, park the TW and take up a California pastime like Surfing and paying taxes.
