Big Sur Hwy 1 Ride

I just took a drive with the girlfriend up to Monterey to do some hiking and camping and oh my gawd is it beautiful. I'll post some pictures when I download all of her photos (better camera, more photographically inclined). But the road. Hwy 1 through the coast is unreal. Twisties for days and up above a unreal teal blue ocean with flower filled mountains directly on the other side. I swear to you. Its un-fuarking-real... so my question is:

Does anyone in the area (or not in the area) want to ride through Hwy 1 with me? I will probably spend the night up around there but if anyone is close (or down to spend a few bills on a motel 6 room) I would be so down. Its literally the coolest, most beautiful, second most packed (in relation to Mulholland which is a zoo) with motorcycles road that I have seen.

Bonus: Laguna Seca raceway is up there. So we could check out the track from afar (or maybe, if we're lucky, up close)!

Would recommend it. A weekend up there is bound to give you some relationship kudos and awesome times/memories.

I'll definitely go back up a few times this summer. Unfortunately for me my rear tire is showing some of the cord after a skid or rip (only after 2400 miles as well!). Gotta get money to get BT 003's...

Does this have to do with riding? No... no probably not. Is it really awesome and do I wanna ride up there on my ceebee? Yes! Yes I do!

WP_000329.jpgJust got back from a half-day from San Luis Obispo to big sur and back. between the beautiful views and the twisties it was a blast. Only trouble was that I got stuck behind many cars going 20 the whole way, probably since its a saturday and an amazing day to be out there. Definitely looking to do it again if anyone is interested
