I'm not sure why I started to get excited about California State Historical Markers. Any real motorcyclist will tell you that our hobby is not about arriving somewhere, but in the getting somewhere. Coupled with the fact that I'm a die-hard history buff, historical markers seems like the perfect wedding between my love of motorcycles and history.

People are always curious about our hobby, and we often meet new and sometimes strange people on our journeys to new and sometimes strange places. SHL markers are one of the ways that I can keep track of some of my journeys.
