I just did that ride myself after riding over to Monterey from Yosemite.

We stayed here.

Ask for room #10. You won't be disappointed. It's a bit pricey but well worth it.

Alas, one of the pitfalls of writing is that sometimes certain sacrifices have to be made to the "editorial god of brevity." In this case, I may have made the mistake of putting Jocko's on the alter.



To anyone paying attention to prfssr's comments, the description of Jocko's is made with laser-like accuracy. It is absolutely a must stop for any meat lover. Everything claimed is spot-on.

A thousand pardons to the throngs of devoted Jocko's followers. Please, anyone who is considering making the trip in the story, include Jocko's in the loop. You won't be disappointed!--Pete

...or maybe he means since it is nearly January and riding sucks on most of the east coast, Middle America most Southern states and the Northwest, that maybe it's a little difficult to tour in any parts other than Kali and AZ right about now...not impossible just not probable.



And since MO is located in Kali, than, holy crap, that's where the riding is gonna take place.



Or maybe MO should do a nice Buffalo touring article right about now.

What if you guys did an info side bar on the right hand side and add stats and bulleted items.



You could do miles traveled, eateries, weather, temperature, protective gear used, weather gear used (if needed), Maps or GPS used, places to avoid, attractions/locations of interest, plus many other items. It wouldn't interfer with the article and could be read by the user at any point. This could be used for, travel articles, comparos and single bike reviews.



Or you could tell me to ef off, because it would be a waste of time and you are quite happy with your current format...

I have been down Hwy 1 through Cambria recently on my 1600 Nomad and it is a gorgeous ride and town. Did many bicycle rides around there, an up Santa Rosa Creek Road, a real ***** on a bicycle. I will be doing the ride again this week on my Nomad, and staying in Cambria. Looking forward to it.

And for those on the east coast, I feel your pain; lived and worked there and very glad to be out of snow country. There are some really great rides in the east, but not this time of year. Hey, take a vacation, fly out to "Hotel California" and rent a bike. Then go riding through motorcycle heaven. It's just the way it is.

Wow! this sure brings back memories,when my wife and I got married 25 yrs ago ,we flew out from New York City,rented a Toyota Sentra and drove [rather she drove as I did not have a liscense at the time]and drove from Los Angeles to tijuana,then north to San Francisco.passing thru Central California.Some of the nicest folks I have met, and total strangers.Should have moved then ,but got at least as far as Las Vegas 15 yrs ago.Boy this brought back memories!And now I can plan a ride! Thanks!
