Re: Northern California ride June 2018

Apparently everybody's mom thinks they can do anything, and that doesn't qualify me to be a pilot...


Buncha crap if you ask me.

Too bad. I hear those planes pretty much fly themselves, just ask Capt Ron.

Re: Northern California ride June 2018

JQ2.0 and I arrived in San Francisco last night, Ubered to a Best Buy, and walked 1.5 miles to the hotel. Other than the large amounts of homeless and beggars, everything went well.

Got up at 5:45 AM California time because of the time change, and decided to walk the 3.5 miles to EagleRider to pick up the bikes. Got there about an hour early and just wandered around a bit until they opened. As our luck would have it, we got back to their door about 10 minutes before they opened, and there was a group of 6 in front of us.... So we were hoping to get there at 9 and leave by 10, we got there at 8:50 and left at 11:10. They did not have the Road King I had asked for, so I ended up with a Road Glide (you can pay a little extra to ensure that you get the exact model you requested - I didn't, so they could substitute any other bike in the same class).

We mt up with JQ1.0 about 35 miles north of EagleRider in Olema, California. It only took us about an hour and a half to cover those 35 miles, so we got there about 12:45, ate a sandwich and hit the road. Didn't have a lot of time to stop and look around because of the late start and low speed limits for like 45 miles coming out of San Fran. We did stop at a beach overlook for some pics, but other than that it was highway 1 (Pacific Coast Highway) all the way to Garberville, and got to the hotel at 7pm. So we covered our first 250 miles with a 3-4 hour late start and a ridiculously slow first 50 miles or so. Hopefully this bodes well for averaging 350 or so miles per day if we start around 8am and don't go through any major metro areas.

Pacific Coast Highway is beautiful and has wonderful curves, but it does go through a lot of little towns in the beginning, so it's not for high speed sporty runs in my opinion. But totally worth it and there are several 20 mile stretches of curves, and we just barely got into some of the big (not giant) sequoias in the last 20 miles or so.

Tomorrow is the Avenue of the Giants, more of the Pacific Coast highway, then we cut inland on 299 to Weaverville, and up to Ashland - should be 320 miles or so by the time we get to Ashland. Will have pics tomorrow.
