It's a great ride with great twisty sections, scary dips a couple of str8 sections with sweepers and you finish up at the coast. What could be better

R6steve, twisty roads lead to twisted minds.

Thumbs up I love this ride

twisties, sweepers, long straights followed by more twisties long straights , bikins and clam chowder in a bread bowl, Yeah baby!!! But after all that and after eating too much(they call me big k for a reason), the ride home seems to take forever

Yah I hit a hill/dip/hill combo at about 95mph once and if it had been 100mph I would have hit the following upslope, very scary. As it was I was maybe an inch off the ground, if anything, but completely weightless all the way from crest to the bottom trough. Reminded me real quick to never ride a new road fast but those whoops were very fun.
It was on my first big ride on the ZX12R and I went from LA-Monteray and back in about 30 hours. I did the whole ride on www.pashnit.com roads other than a few segments of highway that was necessary to connect one to the next.

Repeal helmet laws, they only protect people we most likely don't need in the gene pool any way!
