If any one place is a symbol of SoCal riding, it is the Rock Store, nestled on the serpentine Mulholland Highway in the Santa Monica Mountains near Malibu. On any given weekend, you’ll see hundreds of bikes coming and going, encompassing all types and ages of two-wheeled motordom. This was the first Scout that the riders had seen.

Icelanders like big bikes – such as a modern Triumph, an Ariel Square Four and a Honda CBX.
