this is just terrible. CA sucks f/businesses. My Dad gave up & closed all 6 of his local businesses between 74' & 84' citing, "bad business climate, bad taxes." Retired in a no-upkeep apartment....

Can't say I blame him/others/Helmut either....someday when the tax revenue goes to ZERO maybe someone will say....

Anyone who beats their chest saying that CA is pro-small business has been living under a rock.

CA has been anti-small business for about 2 decades.

Bummer to read, but hopefully he kicks ass wherever he ends up. Helimot is a great friend and I'll miss him in CA. He's kept me and countless fellow racers safe for decades.

CA is a mess of a state. It's a mess due to the leadership (all of it). Those who vote here, eschew political dogma and just vote incumbents out of office. That will at least start a change.

You know Helmut has to be around late 60's or early 70's (yea I know he don't look or act it). I knew him from his days at the Oakland Rd location, maybe it is just time to take the money and GTFO

Only about 42% of people who could vote actually voted in the last presidential election. In off-year state and local elections in California the percentage is MUCH less.

Which begs the usual question: how many of those whining and moaning will actually ever do ANYTHING?

In California you can register online and have the ballots mailed to you, with a stamped return envelope.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not suggesting you vote without at least doing a little research into what you're voting on. I'm glad lazy, dumb people don't vote: I vote for them.

My plan is to relocate/retire to Reno next year.
So I guess going to Hong Kong California will cost the same as my trip to see the Hong Kong babe cost last year?

"In California you can register online and have the ballots mailed to you, with a stamped return envelope."
Damn F...Book must have let them know my ethnicity, I have to put a stamp on my ballot

Have The suit, mostly unused, so need to get his gloves. Helmut led ninjaspicey and myself on a ride in the Santa Cruz Hills and we relocated shortly thereafter. She tried to total his 650 Cagiva with an ass-pack at the end of our ride . Helmut was gracious and took the blame: thumbup

Ah, the internets.

Since when do you owe someone who makes poor choices in life a free ride?
If anyone can come up with a good reason why the middle class should foot this bill, please I'm all ears.
This right here.
California is not small business friendly.California is a state that wants to help everybody that does NOT want to help themselves and suck the life out of people who do..
How many times does socialism have to fail before folks learn it does not work?
