In the L.A. area May 16-19

I find I have to be in some meetings Tuesday thru Thursday (may 17-19). The meetings are in Compton near Wilmington and Artesia. Since I have been desperately short on saddle time for the last two years, I am riding the GS.

Two questions:
  1. I was planning on staying near the facility at a Rodeway Inn at Artesia and Central. Since it has been years since I have been to that part of LA, would I be smarter to stay outside of Compton. If so, where? I don't mind riding a little each day - my meetings are 9-5.
  2. Anyone want to get together for dinner Mon, Tue or Wed?

Re: In the L.A. area May 16-19

I probably wouldn't stay in Compton if I had a choice. It's not so much a danger factor, I periodically work in the area without issue, but off time activities like eating and entertainment would be less enjoyable. There are nearby cities like Cerritos or some parts of Long Beach that have nice hotels, restaurants, and places to hang out that would be much more pleasant. I might be available to meet up while you are here, feel free to contact me,
Michael

Cool Re: In the L.A. area May 16-19

hey Randy coming to the coast very cool! As mike said I wouldn't pick Compton to stay in, Cerritoes isn't to bad with a lot more stuff around. Shouldn't be to bad on a bike to get from Cerritoes to Compton either for your meetings.

Dinner sounds great. Monday is out for me, but Tuesday or Wednesday works.

I'm open as to time and location.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
