So-Cal bound

My Ex-step son is graduating high school next week ( I guess I will use that as an excuse) so I though I would hop on the bike and take it down to Ventura. So here is what I am going to see on my trip South. San Francisco to Salinas, over 68 past Laguna Secca, Highway 1 from Monterrey to San Luis Obispo I have taken before, but never on a bike, so that is a no brainer. It is probably one of THE MOST scenic drives in America with 74 miles of twisties, and the cool blue Pacific ocean right there. Then on to Pismo Beach to hopefully hook-up with SLO-KLR for lunch, if Darin is not at a shooting match, or at work. From there down 101 through Santa Maria, Solvang, Santa Barbara, and into Ventura. I hope to take a ton of pictures, and post up some sort of "good" trip report. This is all going to happen next Friday, with the retun trip on Sunday!

Safe travels, man. If you're inclined to slide through Sausalito on your way, I'd love to buy you a beer. I have Fridays off.

Yep! There is a great place to have a clam dinner, and a Grolsch, down a little side street by the pier. Some how Clam anything tastes better in Pismo!

Not if you haven't gone to sleep yet.
