Heading to San Francisco for the Weekend

Going to San Francisco area to visit a friend and do some riding around the area this weekend. We have another friend we are going to ride over and visit around the Sacramento area. It is only about a 600mi ride from where I am in AZ to the San Francisco area but instead of doing the freeways and doing the ride in 1 day I am going to take 2 days to get to San Fran. So I am heading to the coast and going to ride the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) HWY 1 up to San Fran on Friday. I done the PCH before but it was always in the spring so this is my first fall ride on the PCH. The PCH is a awesome ride the road has tons of twisties and jaw dropping views around every turn. As a bonus ride I am taking HWY 58 from Buttonwillow to Santa Margarita which is listed as one of Americas top 20 roads. It is going to be a little cool out but it should be a good ride I put the vents back in my fairng lowers and I am taking my Gerbing gear just incase and I hope the ole scoot gives me a great trouble free ride.

Have fun and be safe. It sure is beautiful up there. I miss that place even though I was only there for a week.

Highway 58 is one of my favorites. I take it from 33 over to 101 usually. They have a few solar farms back in there now that are new in the last year or two so be careful as suddenly the last time I rode it there were CHP on the road. It used to be you could go as fast as you want and not worry about it.

I'm really envious. I love the PCH, especially around Big Sur.
