Some of the best roads ever

Just came back from a week in Northern Cal. Unfortunately, no, very unfortunately, I did not have my LT with me. The roads there are truly amazing. Pac Coast Hwy -- utterly fabulous. It's now on my list of places to ride.

I agree, we're pretty spoiled here Best part is you can ride 365 days a year

Re: Some of the best roads ever

Curves per mile ratio is high. Now throw in light traffic, number and length of roads and unbelievable variety of scenery, and you have motorcycle Navona. I try to make it to Northern California once a year.

Re: Some of the best roads ever

Best ride wife & I ever had was just after Labor Day a few years ago. Spent the weekend in San Diego with my best friend in the world, then went to the southern end of 101 & headed north. Perfect weather, no traffic, & that beautiful road. I now live 2 blocks from the highway on the central Oregon coast. Don't know what I did right in a previous life, but I'm going to enjoy the time I have left right here. My avatar shows the view from the living room & master bedroom upstairs. Tis a great ride!
