San Jose CA? anyone there now?

I've been thinking of moving to San Jose, CA someday. Why? To escape the Goddamm Seattle winters. After 20 years of getting pissed on from rain, its drains on you.

My question for your guys down there is?

1. Are there lots of Taco Trucks there? I've gotten so used to Mexican for lunch almost daily. Thank God for the Mexican community here.
2. How is the area for motorcycle riding. Are there decent twisting roads there?
3. Its got lots of Asian shops and restuarants there right?

I'll probably take a trip down there this spring just curious right now.

Re: San Jose CA? anyone there now?

My dad works out of cupertino, so I've spent a good amount of time around San Jose. It's no SF or anything, but it's a clean little city with everything you need. You're 15 minutes away from some awesome, awesome roads. As a New Englander, the Mexican food is great and the girls who go to San Jose State aren't the worst, either.

I used live there. Asian food is pretty good as well as Mexican.
Highway 9 is a pretty twisty road. Every Friday night at midnight some guys meet up at the top.
East side San Jose is pretty good for Mexican food.

Been checking out the lofts last few day, within walking distance of the HP pavilion. 88Axix, City Center etc. Trying to find that loft or townhome where I can park the motorcycle inside where no one can touch it.
