With the LA coast forecast to be poor visibility again (due to our friend The Marine Layer), this time I rode north up a very windy Interstate 5 and cut across into the mountains to the West along Frazier Mountain Park Road. The weather was gorgeous and the bike was calving up the corners like there was no tomorrow. There were also plenty of opportunities for off-road excursions…
The scenery changed drastically when I entered the oil towns of Maricopa and Taft, when beautiful mountains & twisty valleys were replaced by thousands of individual ‘nodding donkeys’ extracting what’s left of the oil. The weather was so nice I decided to have another look at the coast, and so turned West onto route 58 of which a section just happened to be one of the twistiest and best motorcycle roads I have ever encountered – fun fun fun!
Reaching the coast at Morro Bay I was very happy to see the weather at the coast was also now hot & sunny with breathtaking clear visibility. And so I started my long awaited memorable ride up Highway 1 with the Pacific Ocean on my left and Lady Luck on my right.
Anyway, I’ve been told I ramble on too much and you just want to see some photographs, so here you go:
