Default CA highway 1

I got married last month yes I know "game over". The weekend of the wedding wail my wife was doing all the girly weeding stuff my best man and I went for a 2 day ride. We left from Chico to Fort Bragg and down the coast. Not the longest ride in the world but still fun and my first time on 1. For anyone who has not ridden on highway 1(if there is anyone who has not) here’s a few picks.

I ride 1 all the time between half moon bay and Monterey. One of the most scenic rides in the world.

Having kids and/or getting married is game over! IMO it's just not worth the risk!

Here are the bikes and I.



Then this was my bike (M109R) about 45 minutes before go time!

Looks like you had a fun ride.

For CA motorcycle roads this is a great web site(good forum to)
California Motorcycle Roads - Pashnit Motorcycle Tours Maps, Passionate Scenic Rides Photos
If you want to ride one of the best motorcycle roads in the US go take Hwy 36 from Red Bluff to the coast, 140 miles of FUN FUN FUN.

This would be a fun two day ride with a stay over in Shelter Cove.

Here is a post with pic's on some of the roads that are on Pashnit, I hope you enjoy them.

Best bike vacation for me was a ride up California Hwy 49 through the gold rush country then to old Sacramento. From there to San Francisco and down the coast on 1 and 101 to San Luis Obispo and from there back to Fresno whence we started. That was WITH my wife. We stayed at camp grounds and B and B's. That was back in the day when she was a sport about such things.
