i ride a zzr600 and have been riding for little over 4 months now. i live in the san diego area and was wondering if there are any good roads for beginners. i have taken the MSF course and am not the worst rider in the world, the instructors actually said i was one of the best to come through in a while. but i really would like a place to ride, some people to ride with, and is not far away from where i live. nothing to big to start out on, cause i heard of palomar mtn, and i would die there. lol. any suggestions?

Why not try a track day or advanced skills school? Something like the Pridmore school? You can go faster, learn how to actually turn, brake and accelerate and if you fall it is in a controled condition with medics on site and you don't have to worry about road conditions, cars or cops.

go to meetup.com, create a account, and find a group of local riders.

one thing, there will probably be lots of groups that are mainly road-hogs and harleys, dont join them, they are more for the comradery and long-straight slow-moving roads.
When I ride and see a group of harleys with one or two sportbiker(s) within the pack, I feel sorry for them b/c they have to be so bored!!!
Instead find a sportbike group or create you own group

later:burnout:

You won't die at Palomar. Palomar is an awesome ride, and you have to do both sides (tight and fast) to appreciate it. But run your own pace! Also, look into Borrego Springs/Anza Borrego Desert. One of my favorite rides. You go to Julian and out the back side you head to the desert. Great time.

Take it at your own pace. Some of the switchbacks can be treacherous and the sweepers can change radius in the drop of a hat.

Once you get the chance, hit another school. Knowledge is the only improvement that you can make that will go from bike to bike.
