Head south before you head home

 

Probably easier to do on my way out. How far south?

Hell, you could go as far as San Diego. There are a few guys we know down there and a dealership. Then head North and stop by the OC dealer ... bunch of Indian guy's in OC.
Make your way up PCH for the scenic ride. Cut over Sunset to cruise Hollywood then head back out to the coast via Mulholland.
Hell, you may even be able to get Hasbin to take his bike outta the garage and ride with you.

I've done the PCH from San Diego to Port Angeles WA. I'm actually thinking of riding down to Big Sur on June 15.. nice place / good memories.

 

Is Fresno too far north for you all?

If it was me going out west I'd just map out all the In-N-Out Burger locations

 

 

Eh. Not a fan. Freddies, Culvers, Steak & Shake.. are much better.

Oh yeaaah. Tommy's chili cheezeburgers. I'd hit a Tommy's, maybe an El Pollo Loco, and maybe Old Spaghetti Factory. We Don't have any of those out here.

What's your destination? I live in Fremont. Looking at your route out, it looks fairly dreary after Durango. Whenever I was out that way, I always chose to ride through Utah's national park region. Utah 12 through Grand Staircase-Escalante is a great ride. Also, a minor deviation of your route could take you through Zion National Park which is fairly scenic. Given your chosen route, I would advise playing close attention to your fuel situation. Gas stations are few and far between where you're going. Regardless, enjoy your ride.

24+ hours crammed in coach... that makes Dante's vision of Hell seem like paradise.

My daughter lives in Dublin. I'll drop a line here when I arrive and maybe we can get together for coffee or something.

 

The reason I'm going the way that I am is that I like to visit odd places... and I'll be staying at a place called the Little A'li' Inn, right off the Exterrestrial Highway by Area 51. I want to get a picture of my bike next to a sign that says "Exterrestrial Highway"... yeah, strange, but what the hell.

 

I'll also be riding through Yosemite - entering at Mono Lake - which should be a nice ride.

 

I've got a handle on where the gas stations are out there, but I may bring along an extra gallon of gas.. just in case the only gas station around is closed.

I watch out for the CHP's... I don't want to end up in a Mexican prison.

 

How does afternoon of June 10 look for you. Send me a PM.

In that case, I can recommend the Navajo Fry bread at Four Corners. Also, if you haven't been there before, I recommend taking some extra time to see the Grand Canyon from the North Rim. Much nicer than the much more heavily visited South Rim. I'll see you when you get to Dublin.

I'll definitely be out your way either this year or the next. I'll let you know.

Do not ask Hasbin to get his scoot outta the gay raz unless you are ready to ride. By the time we.had to load up and go back to work I was dizzer than a drunk duck.

Sure, many times. Of course, Kesey and his Merry Pranksters are long gone but the ride to San Gregorio is beautiful and you can still get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant. If you're planning to head down to Big Sur, 84 through La Honda is a great way to get to Highway 1.
