Motorcyclist magazine hosted the third edition of its Alley Rally this past Sunday. The event shows off narrow corridors and hidden passageways that connect Los Angeles, and is best explored behind the handlebar of a motorcycle. The ride kicked off over coffee at downtown LA's Lucky Wheels Garage.

Cardo Systems was on hand, outfitting riders with its recently introduced Packtalk Bold Bluetooth-enabled communication device. The headset easily slips inside most any modern motorcycle helmet and allows you to connect to your smartphone, and communicate in a group intercom format with other riders.

Editor-in-Chief and Los Angelite, Chris Cantle delivered a guided tour, sharing interesting factoids about California’s largest city. The ride concluded at the Petersen Museum, where participants were allowed free access to its exquisite collection of cars and motorcycles. Have a look at some of our favorite photos and we’ll see you again next year.
