The weather and views were great, but too hot for my nice Triumph Adventure riding gear. My Rev'it ES Air mesh riding gear set is awesome, great ventilation & protection, quality stuff! I love that I can wear my motocross boots with this bike, makes me feel at home...

About 1,500 miles on the bike now.

POV video coming shortly, here are some highlights from the ride:

The old coast road:






Good stuff Sierra and welcome to the forum.
A lot of coastal fog creeping over the hills. I remember that being at 55F and when I turned in land, 30 miles later it was 95F .
