Sometimes the best motorcycle rides are right in your own backyard. That’s the premise of the Motorcyclist magazine Alley Rally. The event is a guided turn-by-turn tour through the center of Los Angeles by Editor-in-Chief Chris Cantle. The ride weaves through Cantle’s hometown and shows of some of the lesser known areas of this megatropolis.
Riders remained connected via Cardo’s slick Packtalk Bold Bluetooth-enabled communication device. Smaller than a pack of cigarettes, the device easily affixes to most any motorcycle helmet and allows riders to talk to one another, in addition to manipulating their smartphone when paired.
From winding bends to beat-up dirt roads, this tour shows off some of the most obscure portions of the city. Beautiful murals and street art line many of the narrow corridors which help expose the diverse nature of California’s largest city. But don’t take our word for it, watch the video and see for yourself.
