I have had a few friends ride the lost coast, they told me they would never go back. The road was terrible they said it would have been better on a dual sport.

I have read that it is paved but looks pretty primitive, not sure I wanna run my 2016 RGU on it, two up. I read it's only 76 miles but takes like 3 hours to ride.

It's been a couple years since I rode it, but as others have said, it's a rough road, paved but not in good condition, lots of potholes and cracks.

On the other hand, it has some very scenic stretches and virtually no traffic. I don't remember any gas available along the way, be sure and fill up before you go. I wouldn't recommend riding it alone, no cell coverage and if you break down it could be a long time before help comes.
