Portland to So Cal

Tomorow I leave out and head to So Cal to hang out and visit family. I plan to make it into Northern California via the 5 to the 199 on the first day. I have a camp reserved...

Each day will be about 400 miles. I'll post up pics of my adventure here on this thread.

Are you going to hug the coast or suffer on 101?

Ahhh yes, the slow but pretty 101. Not sure where the worst drivers are between the two routes.

Rode 540 miles today from the Redwoods to Paso Robles. Staying at my uncles tonight and heading down to highland tomorrow. 940 miles so far with 275 left. This has been one hell of an experience. Got a flat today about 10 miles north of Paso Robles... I just got done plugging it.

I made it to my destination in Highland...
Staying here for 5 days and Iíll most likely get a new rear tire installed while Iím here. It was super hot riding through SoCal...
I stopped off in Santa Barbra (freaking beautiful) and grabbed a snack. Then I went and visited the Hollywood sign and that was a complete cluster, but it was fun
Hereís a shot from the GP as I crossed the Golden Gate. Oh ya I stopped off and rode through San Francisco on some super steep streets! Insanely steep!

Consider picking up a TechNiche Evaporative Cooling Vest before making your ride home. They're worth their weight in gold in hot weather! Soak it in water for two minutes, squeeze (not wring) out the excess water, and enjoy a cool ride for the next few hours. Just remember to not put anything inside your jacket you want to keep dry, (like your billfold).

Making my way back today... I’m done with the first day, back in Paso Robles. Tomorrow will be a long day with another 540 mile day.
I am having a blast on this trip, as it’s nothing like I thought it was going to be. I’ve learned a lot about myself on this trip and have become much closer to my bike... I’m in amazement to say the least and this something I should have doing 20 years ago...

Already thinking of my next adventure

Nice work. Last time I rode to Cali was 1992 for an AMA Superbike event @ Laguna in April.
It rained there n back, maybe got 250 miles of dry time. Sill fun, road trips are always worth it.
