California trip in a few weeks.

We'll be staying with my daughter her son-in-law in Seaside. Can't find a RGU to rent so I went with another fixed fairing bike. Yup, a Wing....



Now that you're done laughing, it's a bat wing. So I lied a little.
Anyway, we're flying in on 5/21 into SF. Picking up the bike Sunday at California Motorcycle Adventures in SJ. Will have it til Fri about noon so I'll need some help from you guys keeping the weather in line while we're out there. They only live a few blocks of of Highway 1.

Need some suggestions on what all to see while we're out there. Places to eat along the coast and all that good stuff. We're hoping to make a trip up to see the Redwoods also if time and weather permits.

SIL has a Sleazeglide so he's set for a bike.

I always liked to have lunch at Max's Opera House Café on the coast highway in Burlingame just south of San Francisco. I don't even like opera but I truly enjoy talent and the waiters were fantastic as they took turns belting out a song between serving great sandwiches. Haven't been there in close to 20 years but I'd go back next time I'm in the bay area.

You have to ride up on Skyline drive. If you take Hwy 92 from San Mateo to Half Moon Bay you come to Skyline Drive about half way there. Take it toward the south and it is a beautiful drive. After 6 or 7 miles you will come to an intersection and that is where Alice's Restaurant is. If you are lucky, you may see Neil Young there. He lives about 2 minutes away. You then can keep going south on Skyline Drive and go all the way to Santa Cruz. It is one great ride. Then take Hwy 1, PCH back up to Half Moon Bay, stop at the Pigeon Point Light House and then work your way up to San Francisco. You will absolutely love this ride. Also, while on Skyline Drive after Alice's Restaurant you will go past Fogerty's Winery on the left. Here is a map of the area. Skyline is Hwy 35. You also go thru a cool little town with a neat bar in Boulder Creek.Map of Burlingame CA | Burlingame California | MapQuest.com

Point Reyes across the Bridge in Marin County is pretty cool.
If doing the Redwoods I suggest taking Hwy 101 instead of Hwy 1 . Hwy 1 on the coast to Ft Bragg is awesome but you will be on it all day.
The Redwoods at Muir Woods in Marin are pretty cool and a lot closer.
Fred's Coffee Shop in Sausilito for b-fast or lunch. right off Hwy 101.
From there Shoreline or Hwy 1to Panoramic Hwy to Muir Woods.

Sounds like a fun trip, doesn't matter what fairing or no fairing. I rode around AZ on my brothers bobber for a week, still had a blast. Just makes you appreciate your RG more when you get back home. Enjoy & have a safe trip, take lots of pics

Agree WRT Muir woods and the Panoramic Highway. Shorter trip and still majestic redwoods. Go during the week.

Highway 35 (Skyline Blvd) is a must in the Santa Cruz mountains, and there are a LOT of great roads throughout that range.

Here's one of my favorite routes adjusted to start and end in Seaside: https://goo.gl/maps/MDxXoQ73KBm

If you end up riding Skyline Drive, you have to take a break and eat at Alice's Restaurant.

Great place to eat. My buddies and I like to take a ride down there from time to time.

Very cool! I will be out that way a few weeks after you. I have an Uncle in Hollister that I will be visiting. No suggestions as it'll be new to me as well. Just plan on cruising around and exploring. I will be riding on the shark.
