Thanks for the compliments, Mike!! You two come on out, stop at my place for motorsickle maintenance. I never tire of the west!! My daughter and I are riding east next summer, we want to make it as far as Little Rock and then hit Colorado/Montana/Utah pretty hard on the way back.
Hey Joe, yup we were in the Redwood forest. There is a section where the old highway has been renamed "Avenue of the Giants", it winds along 101 for quiet aways..nice area. There are also the big redwoods up by Crescent City, That's where they filmed the old Star Wars movie(a pal of my wifes was an extra Storm Trooper).
