Dad you may want to go north on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) From Santa monica. I don't know where it gets good but that supposed to be very nice. I'm still not sure when I get out there if I will rent a bike or not.
Hammer 4, I'm going to be in your neck of the wood, for at least a few days when I get out there for the 4th of july weekend.
Has anyone when to Cal sporbikes retail store? I may be in that area to just a short drive anway maybe an 45 min or so. Is it worth it to go there. Would be looking for some gear speceficaly. Do they have a wide selection right there?
